Great place for a meal with friends or family. I've been here a few times.

Atmosphere is cozy, European and service is good. The food is Delicious and the staff helpful. No hurrying, timing is good. Highly recommend.

Went twice after work during 2 week on site engagement. Ordered terrific house seafood special. Any seafood special you cannot go wrong. Succulent clams, shrimp, calamari, salmon. Great service too. BYOB but wine store right next door.

I'm not an Italian food fan but we went here for a business function. I don't like Italian food because it's heavy and often very rich (plus I don't eat pasta). With that disclaimer out of the way....I thought Cafe Picasso overall was about a 3.5. We had a large party so we were in the very back of the... More

Food was good but the atmosphere is awful. We were 4 people crowded into a table that should have been for 2. Tables are very close together and the noise level is unbearable. You have to shout to hear the person across the table from you. Food was ok, but a little pricey.

My husband and I were visiting our daughter and her boyfriend for the weekend. After being out all day with nothing but a soft pretzel, we were all ready for an early dinner. We opted for this place as boyfriend told us it was one of his favorites. We managed to get a last minute, early reservation (5pm), and stopped... More

Always a great meal to be had here. A BYOB which makes it even better. The main room can be a little noisy since all the cooking is done right there. I like the atmosphere in this room. Lots of energy, a real experience with hearing all the noise of the kitchen. When they make the last meal of the... More

Plentiful food with a high-end touch to even traditional dishes. We were seated in a spacious room in the back of the restaurant. Our reservation was for 6:30, and initially the room was fine because there were few other diners. At 7 pm all the tables were full, several with large groups, and we suddenly had to raise our voices... More

Food and service was very good! Huge menu. Looking forward to going back the seafood was very fresh, the shrimp were jumbo and generous in my fra diavolo.

We had a last minute change of plans on our anniversary and ended up having to be in Somerset instead of Princeton. It was 4th of July weekend so our options were somewhat limited. We read tripadvisor reviews and decided to try Cafe Picasso. We were not disappointed. Nicely decorated restaurant. Friendly & prompt service. Excellent food. We plan to... More
