Good Italian food with a nice atmosphere. Not too pricey. Right on Main Street. Good service, open kitchen.

We have visited Cafe Picasso several times and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious, huge portions and excellent service. We recently ordered catering for a party at our home. Ordering was easy, they called to confirm in advance of the party and helped load our vehicle when we picked up. All our guests loved the food! Veal... More

My wife and I joined friends at Cafe Picasso for espresso and dessert a few months ago, and we insisted on returning for dinner on our next trip to NJ. An incredibly extensive, varied menu...I feel we could return a dozen times and enjoy something different on each occasion. The portions are large... one appetizer was ample for our table... More

Cafe Picasso is a perfect venue for parties of about 50 people. The food quality is terrific and the wait staff work very efficiently. They have a private room in the back that is very comfortable for your guests.

For a state with so many choices for a good italian meal, Cafe Picasso is not such a good choice. Dingy chairs and tables outside and the inside is tiny and dark. It is short staffed so the waiters are always running around like chickens without heads. For better food at better prices go to Alfonso's.

A cozy but great restaurant located in downtown Somerville. It's a BYOB, which helps keeps the cost of your meal down even more. Great mid-week pasta and entree specials! Servers are courteous and food is authentic and high quality - excellent!
