We found this restaurant on this app, and has quickly become our favorite GF restaurant. Staff, service, and the food has all been great. Haven’t had any stomach issues at all the times we’ve dined here. Highly recommend

We have been to all of the Picazzos locations, even Sedona, a couple times. The quality is consistent at each location. We have yet to have any contamination issues and we have to be very careful because 4 out of 6 of us are celiac in our family. It’s one of our regular places we can go out and feel like regular people.

Entire menu is GF with an exception of a non-GF crust (incase Celiac customers want to go out with friends or family) Very chill place, and staff is very friendly and there to help.

Great place. Everything is gluten-free except for one pizza crust option. If you're ordering pizza, make sure you request the gluten free crust.

I love Picasso's but this location is very slow. They seem unorganized and my order was wrong. I get waiting for good food but this was ridiculous

A lot of gf options. Just not all that great and pretty pricey for what it is. They do have dairy free cheese. Lots of low gluten beers, which is a bummer because there are so many actually gluten free options out there.

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.

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.

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.

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 place was So. Good. They say that 99% of the menu is GF, and the only thing that we can think the remaining 1% would be is the selection of beer (which, by the way, was the only disappointment of the visit -- would have loved to have a better beer selection).

It was so refreshing to walk into a restaurant where I didn't have to worry about what I ordered. Homemade noodles? Yum. Baked brie? Fantastic. Tiramisu? Delicious! I remarked to my wife and our server that this was probably the best gluten-free meal I have had since being diagnosed with celiac 9 months ago.

We're just here on vacation, but will certainly visit again when we're down here next year!

I’m new to being Celiac, I found out I had Celiac Disease May 2017 about a year ago, it’s been one of the hardest struggles changing my diet. About a year later it’s made improvements I can’t even imagine. I used to be super scared of going out to eat and getting cross contaminated but this restaurant guaranteed no cross contamination will be in my food. Best food and desert ever. EVERYTHING ON THE MENU IS GLUTEN FREE

We took our daughter to eat here and I will never forget her response. She is 8 years old and when the waitress told her everything on the menu except 2 items is gluten free, my poor girl burst into tears. She has never been able to order whatever she wanted off a menu. She’s never been handed a kids menu and actually gotten to pick from every item on it. The food was delicious and our family will return here often!

I was so excited to read that Picazzo's opened up a new location. It is so amazing to go out to eat knowing that we won't get sick from accidentally eating gluten or getting cross-contaminated food all while eating delicious food. My son even forgot that nearly all of the food is gf and when my celiac daughter asked for a bite of his mac and cheese he said no at first because he didn't remember it was gf. Now that's a great compliment! We live in Colorado, but will definitely be dining at the Glendale location whenever we are in town visiting family. Thanks, Picazzo's.

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.
