To find an entire Italian restaurant that’s gluten free is so exciting! Plus, everything we’ve tried is delicious! Things I haven’t had in years at a restaurant, like avocado toast and tiramisu - what a find!

Wow!!! Hands-down the best gluten-free restaurant we have ever been to. (And we travel a lot) We are also vegan, and they had the most vegan options I have ever seen. Dedicated gluten-free kitchen!

The service was AMAZING as well. Omar did a great job explaining the menu and going over options.

Cannot wait to go back and take the kids!

Hands down one of the best restaurants in town! This place is gluten free (with the exception of some pizzas prepared on dedicated space) and super knowledgeable for all dietary restrictions. Family owned and operated, knowledgeable staff. As a celiac family, we feel super safe. Gf Pesto ravioli and tiramisu are just incredible and our favorites!

I had great service and wonderful experience. But I am celiac and was assured that the gluten free pizza would not have be cross contaminated. Sadly, they were wrong. I got really sick. Apparently this location does not have a separate oven even though it is advertised in the menu. I am so disappointed, I thought I found my new spot! :(

This review is long overdue, and I'm almost ashamed I didn't get to it until now. But I'm writing it right before we plan to go back, it was so memorable.

We visited the Cactus Rd location a couple of months ago and had a fantastic time! Our server, Kale, was one of the best servers we've had at ANY restaurant. And that's saying a lot - we're middle aged and we eat out a LOT. So we've got a lot of experience and not always that easy to please.

But we were certainly pleased with Picazzo's, not just because of the remarkably great service from Kale (more on that later) but also because of the food quality, particularly for gluten-free. I know, I know, when you eat gluten-free or gluten-friendly, you're always qualifying your opinion with "this was really good for a gluten-free version of X." But at Picazzo's the food really IS that good, and you don't need the qualifier. My wife has the gluten allergy, I don't, and I had no complaints whatsoever.

I specifically remember the cheese focaccia was really good. Didn't fall apart, didn't crumble, really tasted great. And the turkey meatballs were also excellent. We didn't even try the pizza, but it looked great.

I had the eggplant Parmesan and it was excellent. I mean, there are a TON of gf options at this place, and everything we did have was great. Since we're planning another visit to Phoenix, no way we're missing Picazzo's again. It was THAT good.

A significant part of our positive experience was the service delivered by Kale. He has a great personality, very friendly and approachable. He did all the mechanical things skillfully - acknowledged us quickly, got our drinks (and by the way he's a great bartender because I had one of the mixed drinks, the Prickly Pear Margarita), timed our meal perfectly by giving us enough time to enjoy the appetizers before ordering the main dish, checked on us to see how we were doing - but more than just the mechanics of serving, he brought an art to it. I'm serious, there is just something about this guy, Kale, that brings serving to another level. It was easy and pleasant to engage with him. He had great menu knowledge, and made good recommendations. He seemed to enjoy what he's doing, and it shows in the quality of service he delivers.

Picazzo's has a winning formula, that's all I know. This is a restaurant where you can not only enjoy great food, excellent service, and even have lots of great gluten-free options. How could you not like it?

Reliably good food and consistently gluten-free. Service a bit slow, and I was stunned to over hear that this “GF restaurant” only has one GF oven. I guess the demand for their traditional pizza has trumped their GF pizzas resulting in super slow service for GF oven items. Seems like they need to add an oven. Anyway, good food, so plan for a long wait for your order. It’ll be worth it! The garlic cheese focaccia is AMAZING.

Wow! I found heaven for GF people! I can’t recommend highly enough. Everything is GF unless you order the pizza specifically with wheat. we had lasagna with sweet potatoes and focaccia bread, chicken parm with noodles, beets and focaccia bread, a side salad, a pizza cookie with coconut ice cream. We had leftovers for two whole meals. I’ve previously had pizza and cocktails which was also very good. Had a whole vegan menu as well. Amazing!

AMAZING!!!!! We were in Phoenix for 2 1/2 days and we ate here twice because it was so good. They do offer non-gf pizzas, but other than that, the entire menu is gluten free. And they are very accommodating for dairy allergies as well. The Bigoli pasta was cooked perfectly. Best pasta I've had. The desserts were great and could easily be dairy free as well. Highly recommend this restaurant!

I enjoyed their delicious gluten free chicken parmesan...with their house made gluten free foccacia bread! I ordered wine but noticed gluten free beer on the menu. My friends & I shared a yummy gluten free brownie which was served in a small cast iron skillet with a small side of ice cream...enough for 3 of us. I love having so many choices @ Picazzo's and can't wait for their new location to open, which will be closer to me, at 83rd Ave & Union Hills.

just terrific! My GF husband was in shock from being able to order anything on the menu. We were visiting in phoenix and ate here twice. He had pizza one time and pasts with salad with gf crutons the other. the crust was pretty typical for gf. the foccacia was excellent. I could eat that kale quinoa bowl 3x a week so yummy. the only thing "wrong" is they haven't come east to Raleigh.....

absolutely love them Always by the groupons when they're available because it saves quite a bit of money as they are on the middle to high range in price but that is because they are entirely gluten free and make almost everything you could want so to pay their bills must be I can't even imagine honestly but they are fantastic they are part of the delivery system as well third party delivery system and they include everything from Pizza to pasta freshly made 2 bread to even Asian dishes like a pad thai or a burger or a salad and it's all gluten free and some of that is even dairy-free or vegan or vegetarian friendly they are incredibly customizable and Catering two allergy needs

I first tried this place in Sedona and finally tried another location. Delicious, friendly servers, mostly glutenfree menu. Tons of vegan options. No vegan tax for subbing vegan chicken (Beyond Meat) for flesh chicken.

I'm disappointed in the poor accessibility of the location. The handicap parking (a whopping 2 spaces) is halfway down the strip mall, and the sidewalk up to the front door is very steep. The inside is crowded with tables and chairs (some of which are tall tables/chairs).

My son was served a gluten pizza!!!! The waiter accidentally pushed the wrong button and a gluten pizza was made and served. My son had never been here before and was so excited based on all the reviews . He ate 3 slices before learning of their mistake. He is visiting from out of town and this ruined his vacation and needed to go back to the hotel. Why do they even make gluten pizzas at a place so well known for gluten free?!!!

Excellent gluten free menu. I had pasta and meatballs and a salad and even though it was a lunch portion I had plenty to take home for another meal. My non-gluten free granddaughter loved the mac and cheese and fid not even realize it was gluten free. And they also have many vegan options for my other granddaughter. Excellent experience.
