Great food so-so service

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... read 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

This is some of the best soup and largest portions I have had! The Pollo Verdure (Chicken & Vegetable Soup) is outstanding, with fresh white meat chicken and large chunks of fresh vegetables. Order the bowl if that is your meal. Otherwise, a cup is more than enough with a salad. Wait staff is superb, and prices are reasonable. This... More

The menu needs to updated. I have a hard time finding something eat. You get better service if you know the brothers. Even when you have a reservation you wait for a awhile.

Nice ambiance, open kitchen. The smells are very inviting. The portions here are big! We shared the appetizer which had a few choices on the plate, the broccoli Rabe was excellent. Try the veal chop, it was delicious. We will certainly be back.

I've been here 4 times in the last 1 1/2 and every time everyone's meal was exceptional. Besides the great food, the service is impeccable. The food always comes out hot and delicious. Their prices are very reasonable and it is a BYOB too! Don't miss this place, special occasions or just a night out, it's great!
