“Questionable Prices”
Review of Caffe Principe

Caffe Principe
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 May 2018 via mobile

Called in for a drink on a very quiet Thursday evening, got charged €18 for a small beer and a small glass of wine!! I know Forte Dei Marmi is not known for bargain places to drink and eat but this is ridiculous.
The bill was not itemised, two tables down from us were a group of Italian men playing cards and I do wonder if there is one price for locals and one for tourists.
The place is not even nice, avoid at all cost.

the place is THE place people used to go when in Forte.
it still is above the others on certain aspects - but unfortunately it is 'old-style' on others. First of all, staff is very polite and professional but they are not going to make you feel at ease, and along with them the whole place is kind of aseptic.
however, price is ok: not cheap, but not expensive, and the place offers a good viewpoint on the people strolling by.
the place is more suitable for a coffee or a quiet drink after dinner, for some reason people tend to favour other places for a glass of wine or of sparkling wine before dinner or before going to dance or during night.

We stopped at Cafe Principe for an ice-cream. They have a very good selection which are high quality. So this was the place we returned to when we resisted Forte De Marmi.

They also do boxes and tins of Chocolates and Biscuits which are great as gifts.

The Cafe obviously does other foods such as pastries, cakes and of course drinks but we never bought any of them so I can't comment on the quality - but they did seem to have a very good selection.
