Always great and no room for dessert

They always offer good specials and varied options with regular menu items. The plates are always filled with more than you can eat!

So many of our friends have raved about Cafe Picasso and I husband and I finally decided to try it for lunch today. I am Italian and cook very well so I am familiar with a lot of the traditional foods and their preparation. While the portions were very large, both of our dishes were missing something. I had the...

The food is ok and there are weekly specials but the big drawback is every time we went there there was a problem with the bill. Okay it can happen in any restaurant but not every time you go. We just stopped going here besides the bill hassle it is very noisy and offers little ambiance. it is more like... More

Been dining in Somerville for years and decided to try Cafe Picasso for the first time for dinner before a show. Ambiance was nice but noisy since you sit adjacent the kitchen. Menu is large with a wide range of choices. Service was a bit odd, but timely, efficient, and courteous. They kept holding the front door of the establishment... More

I've been here a few times. They are very busy on weekends, so be prepared to wait! There is an awkward "middle section" of the restaurant, where you will feel like you are eating in a hallway, but other than that all the tables are great. We went on a night with half price pasta, so it was an amazing... More

My husband and I have been coming here since they first opened and were still at their old location. It has always been great but I feel compelled to write about our experience on this past Saturday night. We had a large party of over 20 people for my husband birthday. Lorenzo waited on us personally and made sure everyone... More

Walked in Thursday night with no reservations and sat at the espresso bar until our table was ready. Its a BYO so we had our bottle of wine on the counter and the waiter or manager ignored us for 15 minutes until he was done ringing up checks. We finally had to ask a couple sitting next to us that... More

This is a persinal favorite every time in in town have to stop in at least once it could be either lunch ir dinner. Menu has a lot of options with fair prices, and always will find a good atmosphere. Last time I went the service was a bit slow, which is unusual, it seems they had a volume issue... More

Never ate at Cafe Picasso before and it was recommended by friends. So we made a reservation and arrived on time. The place was very busy and very small. Thankfully we didn't wait long for our table. They sat us in the isle which was cramped. What I soon realized was how noisy the place was and then I realized... More
