Princi Soho: Princi originates from Milan and I have to admit my bias at this point - it is one of my favourite places in the whole of London. The large and open plan chic marbled space has a large open plan bakery where you can watch the fresh breads and cakes being made. You can either buy food and sit at one of their large long shared tables (the place is often packed so you may need to wait a while and keep your eyes peeled for seats becoming available) or you can take it away. Princi offer large rectangular slices of freshly made pizza or focaccia - mouth-watering!
