When in Rome, tourists attempting to dine as the Romans dine usually end up lying underneath a steamroller, covered in tomato sauce, cheese, and delicious sausage. Avoid the tricky traditions of Italian dining with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and drinks at Picasso's. Choose from Picasso's Bent Tree, Preston Hollow, or Lake Highlands locations.
With three Metroplex locations, there's no shortage of wedge-shaped eats drop-forged inside Picasso's ovens daily. House combos, specials, and gourmets run from 8" (starting at $8.99) to 20" (starting at $21.99). Start on an urbane foot with house gourmets such as chicken Florentine pie ($10.99–$27.99), with chicken breast, roma tomatoes, spinach, artichoke hearts, alfredo sauce, and two cheeses. Or hang a fang on the molten pile of pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and beef known as the super meateater ($10.99–$27.99). Foes of the tomato can consult a house special such as the spinach, artichoke, and mushroom ($9.99–$23.99), glazed with a light cream sauce and four different cheeses. And diners true to their Italexican heritage can grab a gourmet taco pizza ($10.99–$27.99), with taco sauce, ground beef, and all the toppings, including sides of guacamole, sour cream, and hot sauce.
For those who prefer their foods a little more three-dimensional, there are always grilled entrees such as the baby back ribs ($18.99); thick, garlic-butter-basted calzones ($10.99 for a medium); and salads such as the grapes and goat cheese ($10.29 for an entree). Picasso's is a family-friendly establishment complete with a kids’ menu, desserts for all ages, and a carte du jour with enough options to prevent futile family food feuds.
- Today I had lunch at our neighborhood Picasso's blocks from our house. I tasted Picasso's BRAND NEW gluten free pizza and was totally impressed. I have got to say that after trying a few local gluten free pizzas around Dallas this one was HANDS DOWN the best. – Amy Twomey, Dallas Morning News
- The arty pizzeria with an arty name now has more than the vote-getter calzone and pizza with more toppings than roads leading to Rome. The Masterpiece (pepperoni, sausage, beef, mushrooms, black olives, green bell peppers and sliced tomato, with jalapeño on request) remains the prevailing pie able to feed a legion of cubist art fans, but it’s now joined by the Maui Invitational (sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, ham, bacon, Maui onion, tomatoes, pineapple, mozzarella, cheddar and provolone). – Dallas Observer
