picasso is a tiny little reataurant. The atmosphere is well not much to be excited about. They could have been better off sticking to an Italian decor theme. I really enjoy the pizza here. Some of the best i have had in Arusha. I didnt care too much for their steaks or pasta. They two tasted bland and were not... More

The restaurant has amazing pizzas freshly made in a wood burning oven. Good selection of drinks. Unique part of the evening was a band singing all kind of lounge songs, that makes the lifts the atmosphere. Recommended

With the few options we have in Arusha this is on top of my list, the food is great, best Sushi in town, great pizza. The outdoor atmosphere is fantastic and the staff are always helpful, the owner always comes by the tables to greet everyone.

I absolutely loved the food, and that there's something for everyone to eat. At fridays there are live music. What's not to like!

I live in Arusha and come to Picasso quite often for lunch, coffee and/or to do some work. The place is pretty big and there is usually always room, even though it also gets busy during lunch time - which is always a good sign. The menu has a good variety of foods and the quality of their food has... More

I am living in Arusha as a student and yesterday went with a friend to Picasso Cafe for lunch. We ordered the "American Hot" which was delicious! So delicious that we returned back for dinner yesterday evening. Just when I thought the food could not get any better, I was pleasantly surprised with the amazing tasting Calamari for a starter...

Picasso is one of my favorite places to go for breakfast in Arusha. I love their coffee! But yesterday for lunch I had the Four Seasons pizza and my husband had sushi. Making pizza in a brick oven over a wood fire is always the way to go! And the sushi was fresh and good. The people are friendly. The... More

The atmosphere in this place was so friendly and warm, we really enjoyed our stay! Besides that, the food was delicious! If you are looking for a nice place to stay, have a choice of Italian food, but also a great Sushi Menu, the Picasso is definitely a must-go!
