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... read more

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

Nice decor with outdoor dining available. I went with friends and had the grilled Portobello mushrooms and a nice salad, the baby arugola lettuce tossed with green olives, carrots, sun dried tomatoes and artichokes hearts and goat cheese topped with blackened chicken breast--together a more than adequate quantity of food for lunch. My friends had two variations of pasta, which... More

We visited Cafe Picasso last night for dinner and we could not have been anymore pleased with our experience. First, the atmosphere is very authentic! We thought the open kitchen was a very unique touch. We sat in a little hallway like area in between the larger back area and the front area near the kitchen. It was quieter than... More

Probably one of my favorite Italian restaurant. I enjoyed another wonderful dinning experience at Cafe Picasso. The food is excellent....The portion are generous. Great service. The owners Lorenzo and Michele two brothers, have created a true Italian food and atmosphere. It's BYO .

I would never go here again... With all the restaurants in Somerville made the worst choice last night and it would be nice if the people they hired spoke English!

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

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