Okay. Our server was very intrusive and very very handsy. I could not help but to notice that in this time of COVID, I did not feel particularly safe being served by him.

Table was ready immediately for reservation, staff were wearing masks and gloves which provided comfort. The tables were appropriately space and the atmosphere was inviting. Server was prompt and pleasant while later entertaining. Menus choices were sufficient ranging from pastas, pizza, seafood, chicken and beef all with an Italian flare. The tri-meatballs (beer, pork and chicken) were the bomb! We were celebrating a birthday and the service was spread out nicely so we did not feel rushed, but food came our quickly. Dessert was a nice finish!

Italian sauce was mediocre and we where disappointed that they didn't have more offerings of Italian food on Fathers day. My fish was good and husband's steak and eggs where ok...too many other good Italian restaurant s in Plano to go back.

Another delicious dinner at Princi!!! Francisco gave us excellent friendly service. The staff was all masked up and made sure everything was sanitized before we sat down. We had cocktails then the delicious fig and gorgonzola bruschetta loaded with figs- delicious! And the Truffle Fonduta appetizer - the sauce was so good we wanted to lick the plate!
Finished with the Lemon Sole Piccata- light and delicious and served piping hot with crab meat on top lon and caper sauce and dicious tomatoes a d zucchini. We were so full we couldnt eat dessert this time but their Tiramisu is always a hit. Price is just right. Friendly attentive service. Thanks for a lovely evening

Great food, our favorite Italian restaurant. Service is polite but slow, found this to be the case pre and post COVID. The food makes up for it but I wish service between courses improved. Staff is friendly which and the food great, this is the reason We go back.

Personally, I should have paid more attention to ALL of the ingredients in my menu item. There is a type of Italian sausage I don’t like and I would have not ordered had I paid attention, but the rest of the ingredients were very good. This did not, however, prevent me from clearing my plate. My son’s meal was good too (Wild Boar Gnocchi) but too exotic for him. Ambience was sparse, but nice. With seating at only 25%, we could actually hear one another. Will try Princi Italia again and order something different.

Service by CJ was just awful. Had to get up 4 different times to get a new drink order. Had to clear our own dirty dishes from the table twice. Never saw a manager until about 2 hours into the dining experience when we finally went to the hostess & asked if she could find anyone to check on our meal as it had been 45 minutes since placing our food order. The manager, Jose came over & was very nice, apologized & sent us over 2 free appetizers. Food came out hot & delicious so it was clear CJ hasn’t even placed the order. Total dining experience was 3 hours & 15 minutes. We hope this was just a fluke with the restaurant trying to get back into the swing of things.

Food was excellent however our server kept pulling his mask down and we had some elderly guests with us. In this day that’s an important element of being a good server. All other people in the restaurant were fully masked.

Found the food to be just okay. Nothing special. Asked for bread, and that seemed to be a problem. Apparently, you have to pay extra for bread. Would be okay if the food was really good. The atmosphere was really good.
