The fresh swordfish was well-prepared. The staff is friendly and helpful. The kitchen, however, is a bit slow. We were the first people in the restaurant and had quite a wait for the main course. It was worth the wait.

Vineria Picasso offers an excellent variety of typical Sicilian food. The antipasti are a must: caponata, parmigiana, broccoli affogati, olives, dried tomatoes, etc. Pasta is also wonderful, especially pappardelle with tomatos, aubergeens and swordfish, or "spaghetti 'cca muddica" (with capers, cherry tomatoes and toasted crumbs)....More

We dined outside and enjoyed the parade of young people passing by on Saturday evening. But we really enjoyed the food! The waitress was very helpful, recommending a local wine to accompany the pasta dishes (all regional specialities) we ordered. The restaurant appeared to fill...More

The restaurant “Picasso”, opened in 1991, serves traditional Sicilian dishes and more than 350 different Sicilian types of wine bottles. Over the years the local has become the reference point of the enogastronomy in the historical center of Catania. The local offers an excellent buffet of starters. The first courses are particularly recommended. The menu includes second courses consisting in fish and meat.
