First time at this location. I was there for a adult celebration. Large group of close to 30 people. Staff was super friendly and attentive. They were able to easily meet my requests for a vegetarian meal. Started with Fried Calamari, bread, fresh olive oil and marinara sauce. Moved to a dish of antipasto. Then broccoli rabe and sausage ...... More

We were celebrating my son's high school graduation. Service was excellent, food was outstanding! Portions were plentiful! Everyone enjoyed their meals - salmon, shrimp, pasta with vodka sauce, veal, and chicken. The fried calamari appetizer was perfect! The lemon sorbet was the perfect ending to the meal and the presentation was beautiful! This is an excellent restaurant! This is my... More

Had a party of 18 (and 4 Moms) for Mother's Day and loved it. We were originally scheduled to go to Savor, but when the party expanded to 18 (from the original 16), we were forced to change. In retrospect, we're glad we did. Food: We ordered family style apps (calamari, tomato/mozzarella, mussels). The mussels were a 10 out of... More

I waited to have dinner twice at this restaurant before writing this review. This second visit was the more positive experience: Here the positives: The decor is absolutely enchanting, especially the upholstered dining room area and entrance. The bread was warm, fresh and delicious, just outstanding. The dinner portions are extremely generous, you can easily have a second meal with... More

What a quaint little place on mainstreet. Beautiful interior, friendly staff and simply the best lasagna my wife and I have ever eaten. Period. They've ruined it for other Italian restaurants. And there was more than one person could eat. Plentiful portions. I had the spaghetti with the meat sauce and the wide, long obviously home-made noddles and it was... More

Tried this restaurant a couple of times, it's just ok. Their menu is kind of limited, quality of food is just average. The only upside is it's byob.

We have been dining at Cafe Picasso for about 20 years. The food, ambiance and service are always outstanding. The owner, Michael, his brother, Lorenzo, and the staff go out of their way to make customers feel welcome.

We have had the pleasure of eating at Café Picasso many, many times and have ALWAYS found the food and service to be of the highest quality. They offer 1/2 price pasta on Monday & Tuesday, 1/2 price chicken on Wednesday and "Date Night" on Thursday. This, along with being a BYO makes Cafe Picasso a very attractive and inexpensive...
