Very happy with our decision to go to Picasso for dinner. The pizza was absolutely delicious... cooked perfectly with the right amount of cheese and toppings. It almost melted in my mouth. The only reason Picasso isn't getting full stars is because although the sushi was good, it wasn't 100% up to scratch when comparing it to sushi we've had... More

After you have the pizza make sure you check out the really delicious desserts. The... More

Most of the seating for Picasso is outdoor. This ended up being quite chilly the few times I was here. The staff did provide heaters on one occasion. The pizza was average, but acceptable.

I have received excellent service and great meals when I have eaten at Picasso's the past three months. The owner is careful to greet his customers to be sure they are being well taken care of. I have had the pork chops the past three times and it has been cooked to perfection! You say you want dessert? They have... More

picasso is a tiny little reataurant. The atmosphere is well not much to be excited about. They could have been better off sticking to an Italian decor theme. I really enjoy the pizza here. Some of the best i have had in Arusha. I didnt care too much for their steaks or pasta. They two tasted bland and were not... More

The restaurant has amazing pizzas freshly made in a wood burning oven. Good selection of drinks. Unique part of the evening was a band singing all kind of lounge songs, that makes the lifts the atmosphere. Recommended
