My wife and I enjoyed an exquisite dinner in restaurant Picasso. The location in the very center of Arad is elegant and luxurious, warm atmosphere with very friendly staff. We recommend "spaghetti con frutti di mare" and the "polpo". We got the chance to meet...chef Salvo Lo Castro who is a special person after he spoiled us with a *veramente speciale" dinner. We will definitely come back.More

Driving from Timisoara to Oradea, we stopped to eat at Chef Salvo Lo Castro - the best decision! A burrata with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella bufalla on arrugola and prosciutto. Home made pasta on a cream of broccoli with Parmesan cheese having on top salsicia with...a touch of fresh thyme! An extraordinary gourmet dessert finished our culinary experience with Chef Salvo at his Picasso Restaurant. The whole experience was made whole by Nazzuro Aqua water - stil and frizzante - freshly served for the entire time.More

We were transiting Arad and wanted a good lunch. Followed the good rating on Tripadviser and went to Picasso. The location is very good, the interior looks classic. The food was, unfortunately, mediocre. Maybe the chef was not there, because everything was way too salty...(the octopus salad, the ravioli, the baby pork with asparagus). Only the burrata had the expected taste. Sorry for that.More

If you are searching for something out of the ordinary in Arad, this sure is the place. The location, design, menu, presentation is on top. The food is marvelous. Prices pretty high, but it`s understandable, it worth it.

If you want food cooked to perfection this is the place to go to in Arad. Service is also good. The chef is from Sicily and he uses fresh and authentic ingredients.

You should really visit! The food is great, as is the service! The background music is very relaxing! We tried Penne Rigate con Gamberi e Crema di Zucchine Aromatizzate alla Menta and Spaghetto Fresco al Cartoccio, both of them cooked to perfection!

I have been eating with them for years and decided to share some of my experience... The restaurant is in the center of the city, about 10 minutes walk Form Continental hotel, 10-15 minutes walk to the Neptune strand and Mureș promenade. Interior is in...a refined classic note and staff is very friendly and gives you a good mood... The Chef makes wonders in the kitchen, whether it is beef, sea food or pasta you cannot go wrong. Also wine lovers have a great variety to choose from and again they can offer you advice, should you not be able to make your mind... My business trips always include a trip there, but business is not all... Two years ago they helped me to organise a surprise dinner for my wife's birthday, so if you want to surprise you loved ones that is also a good point to start. Hoow that they will keep surprising me with the food and wine choice. A heartly 5 start from me and below you have some pictures of the sea food choice as well as a juicy steak... Dr. Florian H.More
