Comfort food, comfortable setting

Real Italian food (as in what you get in Italy) is about the friends, the family and the comfort of a good time.

Princi Italia captures this nicely.

They are very hospitable and accommodating. The food is excellent. We had a wide range this visit, and everyone enjoyed it. But we also appreciated the staff who took great care of us.

3 of 4 entrees were poor. One had to be sent back. The nightly special of Veal ragout tasted more like ground beef. For a family of 4 thanksgiving dinner it was not good.

Very enjoyable dining experience. Diners were spaced out well to comply with COVID guidelines. All the dishes we ordered were spot on. Simple flavors but well put together and pleasingly plated. Portions were more than sufficient and everything was quite tasty. Service was polite and attentive w/o being intrusive. No complaints at all. Would definitely recommend for Italian food in the area.

We love Princi Italia-Plano. We dine there almost every month. We even had our wedding guests join us for dinner there. This visit was not what we expect from Princi! First, our waiter did not introduce himself until we asked him. That was about the 3rd or 4th visit he made to our table. During each of those visits he did not even pour us any additional wine. That is a small gesture, but is important to a lot of us. Especially wine drinkers. Our food was average, not what we would expect from Princi. The Chicken Picatta did not have much taste and the chicken looked like it was baked, with no spices. We asked to substitute pasta for the potatoes and were told we could. When the bill came, the pasta was an extra $5, along with the normal charge for the plate. The Lobster Fra Diavolo was coated in so much breading that there wasn't any lobster flavor. Small details, but this is Princi Italia and not just another Italian pasta shop.

We have been there many times recently, with great food & good service. This past visit was very disappointing. My salmon was very undercooked & lukewarm. I only took one bite, however the waiter never even bothered to ask me if it was not ok.

Great food and service. We asked to put Fox news channel and young male server said heck no!! Clearly a biased person an opinion, not allowing free of speech . Bad business behavior.

First, the good news: The food was absolutely fabulous! I had the ravioli dinmare and it was quite possibly one of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had. My husband had the pizza with mushrooms and truffle oil and it was phenomenal.

Now for the bad news the service was absolutely atrocious.

Our server was often difficult to find. It took over 10 minutes to get our drinks from the bar. We dined with another couple, she ordered a carafe of wine which is equal to 2.5 glasses. He brought a glass because he said they did not have any clean carafes! She had to ask for a manger who ended up telling the server to bring a carafe. However they both appeared to annoyed with us.

The restaurant was quite crowded, it appeared to be at full capacity.

We will go back again because of the food, I just hope we have better service.

Food was good! However their Bolognese has a strong nutmeg/cinnamon taste to it. If you’re not a fan, then pass. Also I got my chicken piccata to go and when they boxed it up they forgot to put it in our to go bag :( but it WAS excellent. Just wish I could’ve eaten more.

The waiter wasn’t accommodating. Everyone’s food was either too salty or bland. The wine was good and the Manager tried to make things right. There’s too many good restaurants around to revisit this mediocre one.

The only negative I can offer is that my Saffron Fettuccine was tasteless. The contents were great, just no taste. Everyone else’s food was superb.

I loved the restaurant the first time I went with friends. My godson has a severe egg allergy and the server went above and beyond to get him his mac & cheese. I wanted to go with my hubby for our 12th anniversary. We did it right - appetizer, salad, entree, dessert - all amazing. We're still talking about how good it was days later and can't wait to introduce people to the deliciousness!
