When in Rome, do as the Romans do and cover yourself in tomatoes and cheese and then lay beneath a steamroller. Today’s deal brings the flattened feast of gladiators and emperors stateside: for $10, you get $25 worth of pizza and drinks at Picasso’s. Choose from Picasso’s Bent Tree, Preston Hollow, or Lake Highlands locations. This deal is valid for dine-in only and cannot be used toward alcoholic drinks—slices go best with a pint of marinara, anyhow.
With three Metroplex locations, there’s no shortage of wedge-shaped eats born 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 ultimate 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, while those still cursed by the Tex Mex hex 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 entrées such as the baby back ribs ($17.99), thick, garlic-butter-basted calzones ($10.99 for a medium), and salads such as the grapes and goat cheese ($9.99 for an entree). Picasso’s is a family-friendly establishment complete with a kids’ menu, desserts for all ages, and a menu with enough options to prevent futile family feuds.

Among Urbanspooners, 85% like Lake Highlands, 94% like Far North Dallas, and 87% like the Inwood Road location. > * You have to try the “calzone crust” on your next pie. Such a huge variety on the menu, everyone can have their favorite entrees from burgers to pasta. You just can’t go wrong. – John K., Urbanspoon > * One of the two best pizza restaurants in the Metroplex. All of the other dishes on the extensive menu are also great. Service is good. It has large tables that would be good for groups. – Jim L, Yelp > * This pizza came out steaming hot and was pretty tasty. The menu here is huge and I’d like to try something besides pizza one of these days. I’ll be back. – Jennifer C, Yelp
