Maybe it was the Xmas season, maybe a busy Friday evening but this didn't work out for us. The little guy's Pollo Valdestana and my Pollo Picasso just were't inspired in any way (my chicken was just tough, dry and tasteless). The dad had hake which he pronounced good and the good lady had Seafood Linguine which she enjoyed so... More

Went to Picasso for a business dinner. The food was very good. For starter I had the Gamberi Piccanti. The sauce was excellent and the prawns were very tasty but slightly overcooked for my taste, they were very soft. For main course the Duetto di Capesante e Gamberi was also very good. As well as scallops and prawns there was... More

I was here last Saturday night as a + 1 for a friend at the last gathering of an association. It was to be to a memorable evening. I can honestly say its was for all the wrong reasons. Firstly the group has to be seated at 2 separate tables as they couldn't host us all in one line. We... More

After 2 days of walking and sightseeing it was great to put our feet up and enjoy the fabulous food at picassos. Small, cosy restaurant doing a great special of pizza or pasta with a soft drink for €10. Had caprese pizza which was perfect. Crispy and tasty. Pleasant and friendly staff.

This small family run Italian restaurant is located in the Clontarf District of Dublin. The restaurant has seating for about 20 people including bar seating so it's not suitable for large parties. Picasso is a quaint bistro that is perfect for a romantic evening or an intimate business meeting. They have a fully stocked bar with a good wine selection.... More

I've have had the chance to visit Picasso on several occasions - This review is going to be based on an overall overview of all occasions. The restaurant itself is very pleasing and cosy. It's decor reflects a rustic style that I personally enjoyed. The spacing between tables is good so noise really shouldn't be a problem. The food at... More
