Our Story

The story of Principale is a story of gratitude.

We are grateful for the sea, the sun, the stars; thankful to be staying close to our roots, staying home in our original location on the Arabian Gulf. Principale is the rebirth of Nino, 22 years later.

While all of your favorite classic Nino locations and dishes across Kuwait and the GCC are remaining as they are, we took the opportunity to give ourselves a new challenge and to completely reinvent the Nino experience.

Principale’s chef-driven menu integrates farm-fresh produce, imported cheeses, and homemade pastas into classic Italian cuisine. Our produce partner is Kenanya Farms; our cheeses have been shipped in from the Italian countryside and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia; our flavors are inspired by the country’s regional cuisine.

We’ve spent our energy on making this place feel alive and atmospheric – full of inspiration. Your presence is essential to electrifying the aura of Principale and completing the space. Welcome to the Principale Di Nino legacy.
