We frequent Picasso’s often for lunch and supper. We would highly recommend this restaurant! The salads are safe for Americans. Desserts are great too... especially the Chocolate Mousse! The service is good as well with servers that have been there for years. Please try this...More

Not only the food is awesome but the staff is very welcoming. One of the best cakes in town and French press coffee! The pizza and sushi were also great and my friend was in love with the Burguer.

We had 1) bruschetta - 5/5 2) pizza - 5/5 3) sushi veg - 3/5 due to pickled filling, I prefer raw 4) burger - 3/5 due to patty size/bun ratio, bun too big, patty much smaller. V good hygiene & prompt service.
