I could not decide between two dishes. One (the ravioli) was sold out. Decision made! I had the braised short ribs with mushroom risotto. Not much of a risotto fan - until I tried this risotto. It will be difficult to top this dish on future visits.

We always enjoy the food at Princi Italia and this was true on this visit. However our server was very disappointing and impacted our experience. The lack of attention was so bad that I had to physically get up and find a water pitcher as we waited for refills almost through our whole meal. It’s regrettable that this couldn’t be the experience we typically enjoy.

One of the worst experience. They don’t have many vegetarian options and the one they have too has no flavor. My first and the last visit to this place. Abysmal.

Great place- have been there many time. Had to replace our drink: the glass came with lipstick on… (didn’t take the drink off the bill, as I would expect! Just replaced it). other than that, everything was perfect.

The food and service were excellent. The server was newly hired, was still learning but had a sense of humor to help him.
But there was a tray of silverware and block of parmigiana cheese that was placed between two tables. That was an odd, and perhaps unsanitary, place for them to be. We were never offered any grated cheese and we probably would have declined having any.
Management should correct this. Otherwise everything was very, very good!

Overall poor experience. Dinner portions were small considering the price. Wait for food was long considering the restaurant was about half full. I would have expected more when you consider I spent $50 per person on food and drinks.

With it being our 42nd Anniversary and letting the restaurant know this, I was surprised it wasn't even acknowledged. Our waiter was okay, but the food was great. The Old Fashion I got was excellent. A great place to go and enjoy some really good cuisine!

My husband and I ordered the Sunday special, a lasagna. The portion was generous but the bottom layer of pasta was hard which detracted from our enjoyment.

When I made the reservations, I specially made it a point to call directly and requested that we get Gio as our waiter, for the birthday dinner. The manager, confirmed by phone on Monday June 21st, that Gio would be working on Saturday, June 26.

When we arrived and checked in, we were advised that Gio was not on the schedule, no reference to the special occasion, so I had to mention the birthday again. We were extremely disappointed and asked the hostess to seat us with the best waiter and she suggested Francisco.

We had the worst service ever from Francisco. Had to ask him to remove dirty plates, refill our water, hunt him down for drinks. I never got a refill on my soda the entire time, nor were we asked how things were, except once by the hostess that stopped by at the end of our meal. Since there had not been any mention of dessert, we flagged Francisco over to take our order and just brought the one dessert with a candle on it and no birthday cake or song for our guest. Coffee or after dinner drinks were not offered, and he put the bill down, didn’t even say thank you! Really?

This was by far the worst level of service I’ve received at Princi Italia Plano. This is not what I’ve expected after being a regular customer at both your Dallas location and for a few years now in Plano.

Aside from not getting our water refilled, this was a near perfect dining experience. The food was excellent and again, other than the water refill issue, the service was very good. We will definitely be returning.

Food was very good, service was excellent. Emma was our server and she did a great job. She has waited on us before and she is always a delight. The food here is always good I would enjoy brunch here better if there were more breakfast foods. There were only 2 on the menu, French toast, which was excellent but would have been better with a side of bacon. Also, eggs Benedict but it only came with salmon so I had mine meatless. Everything else was a dinner food.
