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). Also the main dishes are delicious, with a great offer from different kind of fish... 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 with locals after 8 pm, and we could see why. Delicious!

After being turned away from a couple of seafood places, we stumbled across the Picasso. Cute looking restaurant, with some outdoor tables, content looking customers and a friendly waitress who gave us a menu and left us to make up our mind. Tagliatelle with pistachio and porcini was great: tasty, interesting flavours and just the right amount of food. The... More

We loved almost every meal we ate in Sicily but this was the best of all! Everything was so fresh and delicate I almost cried. The crudo was fresh and delicate- with olive oil, salt, and a little chili pepper- the best in the world. The pistachio i fungi pasta was the best we've tasted and the insalado du pulpit... More

We dined here last night. Great location a block from the main square and on a charming cobbled street. Excellent food. Nice olives and bread to start. Pasta with prawns and grilled calamari. Excellent! A good selection of local wines by the glass. We loved the atmosphere of this traditional restaurant which appeared to be filled with locals. The service... More

We had an amazing meat and cheese plate at Picasso...good variety with nice condiments. It was much bigger than anticipated, so the mains we ordered to follow were a bit of a mistake. We had some nice wine, though the service was too slow for ordering by the glass so we ordered a bottle after waiting a while for a... 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.
