Omg! This place is amazing for those with gluten free allergies and other allergies. The first thing we were asked was if there were any allergies at the table tonight. After telling the waiter that I had celiac, he proudly shared that I was in luck because everything was gluten free— score! My son and I split the lasagna. It was fantastic! My non-GF (picky eater) husband had chicken wings tossed in bbq maple. He really enjoyed those. We also ordered some baked cheese, which was super tasty! Whether you have allergies or not, I don’t think anyone will leave disappointed in this place. They use high quality ingredients and make from scratch food. We will visit Picazzo’s the next time we are in Phoenix!
My go too restaurant especially for happy hour
We ate here twice during our 5 day trip to Phoenix. Such a great find!! Our only disappointment was they ran out of ravioli both times. Non-Celiac husband says the lasagna is the best he’s ever had! Everything we tried was really good. Be sure to save room for dessert. Tiramisu is absolutely phenomenal. So nice to find a go-to restaurant that’s delicious and safe!
They have an excellent selection of gf items! They make an in house gf pizza crust and flat bread. I’m a big fan of their happy hour items all gluten free!
Awesome food and great service!!!
Food is delicious, excellent customer service. One of the few places I can eat and totally feel safe that I won’t get sick.
Good pasta skimpy on the sauces so just as for extra sauce so it's not dry.
Staff was great and the food was Amazing!!!
Great place to eat safe! Wings are excellent, and so is the pizza.
This is my go to safe restaurant in the Phoenix area. The mac and cheese is to die for.
The best pizza and the truffle Mac and cheese was wonderful! We will be regulars here!
Amazing menu. Food as it should be....but without gluten. Have gone back several times. Entire family enjoys it and I’m the only GF one. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Just need more locations. One near Ray Road and Signal Butte would be great. ;-)
We're from Illinois, so we went by other's reviews & we were not disappointed! It's a safe haven for celiacs & Anthony is the best waiter ever! Thank you!
I love Picazzos!!! Totally GF and Celiac friendly! And their Sangria is to die for!
Amazing to find an entire menu that is GF (other than the pizzas which need to be specified to be GF). Great taste, great service. What more can you ask for. Two years later - came here twice again. This place is GF heaven!
amaaaaaazing!!! pasta, salads and pizza all gluten free
This place is amazing! So many choices to accommodate gf and df, even have an amazing gf beer! Wish I had something like this closer to my home.
5 stars all the way! Really great place for gluten free options!
So delicious! Peace of mind when eating. Great service!
It is so wonderful to eat in a dedicated GF restaurant. I haven't experienced that degree of heaven before now. Add in the fact that the food is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS, and you have my Number One reason to move to Phoenix. The Foccacia bread is insanely delicious. I could come here and just have the half loaf order plus a glass of white wine at their very nicely priced Happy Hour and be superbly happy. But one must eat a balanced meal- and there's nothing on this terrific menu that would harm a Gf gal. I must be GF and dairy free, and I had lots of delicious choices. So happy.
Lots and lots of gf options, great awareness. But food was just ok and found it overpriced.
Unreal. Love these folks.
We really enjoyed our dinner. I had had the gluten-free pizza. The crust was good, but a bit fluffy and the cauliflower Alfredo was excellent. Apple walnut salad-was good. We ordered the focaccia, I would not call it for focaccia, but just sliced bread it had no herbs and not flat like focaccia. I would come back though.
Awesome restaurant for those with celiac. Almost everything is GF and they are very clear about what is not. Great selection of food and drinks.
Amazing GF food. Almost everything is GF. A few years back they had both GF pasta and regular. They got so good at GF that they just do all GF now. The folks that don’t need to eat GF are just as satisfied(they can’t tell). We travel all over the country and this is by far our favorite place for GF variety and taste!! The Scottsdale and Sedona one’s are also good. We eat here two or three times a year when we are in AZ, probably 30 times over the years, and have never been disappointed.
The BBQ chicken pizza was delicious! Most of the menu is gf. Our server, Luke was very nice and very knowledgeable. Great options!
Amazing place and soooo many options!
Spendy, but delicious.
Wonderful menu. Had dedicated GF pizza oven. Pretty much everything is GF & yet can get nonGF pizzas too. Prices reasonable. Definitely would return if in area
We have eaten here several times. My son has celiac and we are very nervous about eating out. We have had no issues here. It's one of our "go to" places.
Amazing GF place with oodles of options - pasta, pizza, great entrees, salads, appetizers. It's a chain, so check for other locations that could be closer to you if needed.
We were visiting Phoenix and heard about Picazzo. Their menu is mainly GF, dedicated GF pizza oven. Everything we ordered was delicious and safely prepared since there is very little gluten in the kitchen. Great kids menu too. Where else can you get cheesy bread as an app and Gf cheese raviolis?!!
We are visiting Phoenix on vacation. We brought our gf family of 4 and could not have been happier! An extensive fully gf menu wow! Our orders were as follows. Pesto ravioli, thai peanut pasta, children's ravioli, and BBQ pizza as well as appetizer of Baked brie and half order of gf focaccia. Amazing! Go you won't be sorry!
Excellent meal! Almost everything on the menu is gluten free. Very allergy friendly. They even have fresh gluten free pasta!
I used to eat here when we lived in the area 5+ years ago. So happy that it's basically the same still. Just better! Amazing food and no reaction. I love being able to eat "real" foods like pasta dishes, desserts, and more. I highly recommend any Picazzo's location!
Last month I visited and enjoyed an organic, gluten-free pizza at the Flagstaff location. Yesterday, I found myself in the Valley and couldn't resist giving the Tempe/Chandler kitchen a try. FANTASTICO! The entire experience was top-notch . . . from ordering to eating to chatting with staff to leaving with a happy belly. A little more topping would have been welcome, but all-in-all the pizza was delicious and filled with guilt-free ingredients. Yet, what made my experience exceptional was the service. The staff made me feel like a king. They were friendly and attentive, without being intrusive and seemed sincere when they asked, "Do you like your pie, Sir?" I had a nice chat with the waitstaff about eating organic and choosing cool toys for toddlers, then I left with a happy belly. I give Picazzo's Organic Italian Kitchen a short, but savory recommendation, and I look forward to my next trip to this location. Note: I'm a professional reviewer for other services and products, but this one is a freebie. I really enjoyed eating here and simply had to write a piccolo (I think this means little).
Best gf restaurant chain in area. Love the one in Scottsdale. Went to chandlers locale with family. Service might have been the worst I have ever experienced. Lost my reservation (twice) and once seated, food took an hour to arrive. Desert took another 30 minutes after ordering. Managed was miffed when experience was shared.
SIMPLY AWESOME! 1st visit 1/5/16. I'm celiac and had no issues. Pizza crust was amazing. Update after my return from Philadelphia 5 months after 1st visit. The GF eggplant Parmesan was amazing as was the fresh GF focaccia bread. Plans to make several more visits before I return to the Northeast. Please open a restaurant in Philadelphia!!!!!
We love to come here and know that all of the food is GF. The pizza's are great, but my daughters favorite is the Ravioli (either cheese or butternut squash).
Picazzo's, please come to San Diego. enjoyed a great meal. had the spaghetti and meatballs, pasta with butter and parmesan (kid friendly) and a wedge salad. all glutten free and delicious. voted best glutten free restaurant in 2015.
Amazing menu and no worries!!
This is a fabulous find! Great tasting food. Entire restaurant is GF with the exception of one pizza crust which they prepare in an entirely different kitchen! Love it!
Wonderful gluten free pizza, chicken picatta, and brussel sprouts with bacon and toot vegs.
it's nice to have some pasta options that are gluten free but unfortunately I have had multiple reactions after eating here. They are supposed to know better since most of their menu is gluten free.
The only item on the menu that HAS gluten is one of their pizza crusts. Everything thing else is gluten free and mostly organic and locally obtained.
Love the selection! We come here whenever we visit Arizona. The food is excellent. Best place to eat at as a celiac.
This is the best gluten free restaurant for Celiac. Most everything on the menu is gluten free including a dedicated stone oven for gluten free pizza!!! We don't have to worry about cross contamination. We love this place and eat her several times when we are in town. We wish there were more Picazzos!!
The absolute best place for truly GF food. 100% gf kitchen, and amazing selection of everything Italian that you never thought you'd eat again.
This place is amazing. They truely care about health and taste. So many great things. Everyone is knowledgeable about cross contamination and more than half their menu is already GF so that helps.
Everything I've ever had here (dozens of times) had been absolutely amazing. Things I've dreamt would be gluten free are possibilities here: stuffed tortellini, sandwiches, appetizers, and desserts. The restaurant is all gf, organic, non gmo and you will not find artificial sugars for your organic iced tea. The only thing I'm dreaming of for them to add to their menu is a chicken and shrimp calzone with Alfredo and for desert carrot cake my husband favorite.
This is the first place I ate out at after getting the celiac diagnosis. I have been a number of times and have never had a bad time. Staff is amazing and friendly. On multiple occasions I have had the GF chicken bbq pizza. Their lunch specials are great too. My non-GF boyfriend loves this place as well.
This place is extremely knowledgeable about celiac and contamination. It’s literally the only restaurant I feel safe eating at in the Phoenix area. Unfortunately, they’ve made some changes in the last few months, and it’s not as great as it used to be. They did away with the large GF pizza, which was part of what made me feel “normal” eating here. Now they only have small pizzas, the crust is doughier than it used to be, and it’s very expensive. The appetizers are smaller too (4 meatballs? For $11?)... it’s like portions shrank and price tags inflated. I don’t like that they’re catering to fad dieters more than they used to (the new menus clearly marked everything “keto friendly” but I had to request a special vegan menu to more clearly understand what’s dairy and egg free?), but I’ve NEVER been glutened here, so that’s good at least.
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.
The menu is very close to being completely GF. They really should just get rid of the regular pizza and be done with it, haha. Anyway, DH (celiac) did not have any issue and the food is very good. Delicious pizza crust - and they offer a cauliflower version if that's your thing. A little on the pricey side, but not bad for Sedona. EXCELLENT service. Speedy and accurate. Highly recommend.
They understand Celiac Disease and their menu is almost entirely gluten free. I have CD and have dined in several of their locations with zero problems. Their pizzas are more gourmet rather than what you would find at most pizza places. Good variety of enjoyable pizzas. Also a good, gluten free selection of gluten free pastas.
Awesome chicken parmesan. The lasagna looked good. GF cheese bread is tasty.
Feels good to order from a place and not have to worry if it has been cross contaminated. Everything we had was great!
Such a great Gluten Free friendly establishment. I was in such a shock when my brain finally realized their pasta was GF. First restaurant I’ve been to that I could get warm GF bread at dinner and Cheese ravioli. They are Vegan and Vegetarian friendly as well. The staff was super nice. Pricey, but oh so worth it.
Was sooo excited because everything on menu was gluten free....but evidently NOT..I ordered the gluten free pizza and a Caesar salad, and was assured by server that I would be fine...well I was soo sick, something got cross contaminated. I didn't realize they had regular pizza crust until I heard another table ordering non-gluten free crust..ugh..So if you are going to do a true gluten-free restaurant do a completely GF restaurant. If someone wants a regular pizza, who are not Celiac they have millions of choices...I do not....
Having a gluten and dairy allergy can be tough when eating out, but my goodness this restaurant has so many options vegan and gf because mostly everything is gf! Highly recommend. I had the chicken picatta and it was phenomenal and full of flavor. Wish I could take this restaurant back to our home state!
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!
Everything is gf except they have gluten pizza crust as well. Had the artichoke dip with focaccia bread and carrots, Greek salad with focaccia bread and both were excellent. Pizza was decent except a bit on the salty side but better than most crusts I have had in the US. Great find.
i am updating my review to say this place has improved exponentially. i have NEVER been glutened here and they are amazing about allergies and special requests. the servers are friendly and respectful. this restaurant is the reason i don’t completely hate arizona and the only safe place i can eat at in the state.
The entire menu is gluten free. (They can make a gluten pizza for your friend:) The menu is extensive. I’ve been several times now and everything is great. Highly recommend for serious celiac like myself.
Great variety of foods to pick from that are gf without having to be modified! Server asked about food allergies/issues before placing order with kitchen-didn’t have to make the point. Food was very good and fresh tasting! Great to see gf beers and desserts on menu! Family friendly, neighborhood vibe, modern decor. We will be back!
Great food, great service! Entire menu and restaurant is GF except for a couple of pizzas. They also asked if I have any other food allergies to note on the ticket. It was nice to have a worry-free meal for once!! It is a touch expensive, but a small price to pay for peace of mind.
We have eaten at Picazzo’s in Sedona a few times and enjoyed it very much. The Glendale location did not disappoint. I was traveling solo this trip and I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere as I ate my lunch before catching my flight. So many amazing gluten free options!
We ordered 2 pizzas. One was great but the other had been rolled out super thin & the crust was like a dry cracker. But it was celiac safe, even Nima tested.
Gluten-free done delicious....Full menu is gluten-free, Italian favorites like Lasagne Bolognese, Spinach Cannolini and Pizza, all are so flavorful, the pasta is tender and their portions are ample. They do offer some Vegan and I believe DF items as well. This has to be one of our favorites. Our son flies here from MA and this is the first place he wants to visit. If you visit once, you will become a regular too!
This is our new favorite place! Everything is gf (from bread to pasta to cookies/brownies) except for pizza which is offered gf and regular (baked in separate ovens, of course). They offer a wide range of delicious options and the kids menu is phenomenal (includes drink, side and gf dessert). My celiac daughter and non-celiac son both consider this their absolute favorite restaurant. Wish this chain would spread to locations back east!
