Had lunch there today and it was AMAZING! Had the chicken piccata pasta and Cesar salad lunch special. So much food and I can my non-GF friend thought it was delicious. The croutons are even gluten free, as is almost everything on the menu. Super GF safe, friendly staff and wonderful food.

I was on vacation and found this place and was very excited to try somewhere that had so many options for me. This place was so amazing. Staff was extremely friendly and food was amazing. I have been GF for 5 years and this was the best GF pizza I have ever had. It is not your regular thin crust crust you get everywhere. It had the taste of a pan pizza but not as think. My friend, who is not GF, was very impressed as well. You must try the cheesebread as well.

Went during “healthy hour” (happy hour) with our family including our Celiac son. Everything on the menu is gluten free (except the large pizzas which is a bit odd but whatever). The food was absolutely delicious and the service was very good. Wished we lived in the area (here in vacation) to go more often. Would highly recommend. It was great to go somewhere and know that it was completely safe for my son and I didn’t need to worry about cross contamination.

This was so amazing. I ordered take out pizza and salad. I am also dairy free so I was able to get an amazing, delicious gluten free dairy free pizza. They have a thin, crispy, delicious crust. The first pizza I have enjoyed fully in years. I only wish I bought a couple to take back with me to San Diego. The salad was fresh and delicious too. The staff was very knowledgeable and took time to make sure they were taking care of me. They also checked to make sure my pizza was correct before giving it to me. I waited a long time to come here and it was so worth the wait!

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!

We just moved to the area…. LOVE the Pizza! Finally a beer and pizza place safe for me! And they’ll deliver! Pizza delivery safe for me?!? What?! The Elote and the Hot Honey and fig—mmmmmm. I do have to say- stick to the pizza and deserts. I ordered the chicken piccata and the chicken was rather undesirable as it was not trimmed or thinned at all. It seemed boiled and rather tasteless. Hate to say anything bad about them at all, but gotta be honest! The deserts are fantastic!
