Really nice staff. They speak English which is great for tourists. I had the steak which was a little fatty but super tasty. My girlfriend had a pasta dish which she thought was delicious. Great selection of wine. Fabulous view of the sea and lovely...More

We had a lovely lunch at this seaside restaurant. The restaurant was lively and quite full. The food was excellent and the service attentive once the lunch rush got seated. We split a pasts (spaghetti with tuna roe) and the fried fish platter. The fish...More

It's very beautiful and romantic place with delicious food and very friendly staff. Make sure that you will stay upstairs on the terrace as it has it's own, amazing vibe and beautiful sea view. The food is very fresh and tasty and their cannoli is...More

We visited Principino in March when there where few tourists around and the weather was great so we could sit on the terrace on the harbourside. A great setting straight from a film set. Given the relative simple look of the restaurant we didn't expect...More
