“Quality has gone downhill, though the coffee's still good.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Portion sizes are too small, and the attention to detail is particularly lacking now – haloumi which is not haloumi, pine nuts likewise.

Coffee's still very good though.

“The best wrap in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

My first time but not my last time! We we enjoyed everything about the place! The specials on the chalkboard were wraps of all kinds. I selected #3 chicken and bacon wrap. It was so good! The favors melded together in the best way and the bread was perfect. We finished the meal with the 3 chocolate mousse, which was very rich but delightful and went perfect with my cappuccino.

“great food and good service at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Picasso is situated just of the Moshi Road close to the Impala Hotel in a supermarket complex so is convenient in terms of access and parking, the owners have invested in improving the ambiance of the outdoor area and have recently installed an outside pizza oven and bar with live music on a Saterday evening.
The menu selection is wide with a mixture of predominantly indian and italian dishes as well as seafood, the food is excelent and I have returned to this restuarant numerous times during my stay in Arusha and been pleased every time, service is also very good and pricing reasonable.

“A Restaurant on a Parking Lot”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

The physical site here is very poor. It's right beside a parking lot which is always crowded. The place has no ambience at all but the foor is fine.
