Located in the heart of SoHo and featuring a traditional exposed brick décor and seating for twelve, the restaurant offers curb side pick up allowing customers to drive or bike up to the storefront and have their order brought out to them.
Prince St. Pizza aims to bring a neighborhood vibe to the area and reflect back on days when pizza was a heartwarming family ritual. Pushing quality over quantity, the limited menu focuses on all natural, local ingredients.
