Now open: Picasso’s Pizzeria

Picasso’s Pizzeria, the Delano pizza-by-the-slice place I told you about last week, quietly opened on Monday at 621 W. Douglas.

There’s no sign on the building yet, but the menu now is posted in the window, and it looks goooooooooood.

Picasso’s offers slices for between $3.65 and $5.95, depending on how “artistic” you like your toppings. A basic slice of cheese is on the lower end of the cost scale. A slice of “The Picasso,” featuring basil pesto, Roma tomatoes, spinach, feta and Romano, is on the higher end. I also liked the sound of “The Kansan,” topped with sunflower seeds, spinach, blue cheese and red onions. Picasso’s has meat-topped pizza, too, including “The Heart Attack,” featuring pepperoni, beef, Canadian bacon and Italian sausage.

Full 16-inch pies range from $13.99 to $20.95. “Ginormous” pizzas also are available.

Picasso’s also has a gluten-free menu and serves sandwiches and salads as well. It serves microbrews and domestic beers, both by-the-bottle and on tap.

So far, the exterior doesn’t have much curb appeal, but I peeked in the windows and the dining room is attractive, featuring a bar and lots of booths.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays.
