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.

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.

best meal of my life. we had cheesy bread which was the first gluten free bread i’ve had and it was really good! it has a sort of corn bread and regular bread mixed texture. I also had lasagna and my non gluten free boyfriend had chicken parm and he also said it was one of his favorite meals ever! the whole place is gluten free besides one pizza crust that they make in a different oven. they asked if i had any allergies or celiac. so nice to go to a place where i can chose anything on the menu and feel safe eating!

Everything gf. 5 stars just for feeling safe! The cannoloni with spinach was lovely. My husband was able to sub vegan cheese on his chicken parmesan. We had an app of vegan cheese bread. So nice to be able to have a "fun" appetizer. In general, the flavors of our food did not "pop'", but I would not go so far as to say bland. I would definitely go back and continue to explore the menu. They did offer regular pizza crust, which my daughter got for her margarita pizza and enjoyed.

So many options. I can only wish that we had something like this close to home! Having several GF desserts to choose from was great—the apple crisp was definitely a highlight. Did the meatball appetizer and the fresh basil made the dish. We split the vortex pizza and I loved the toppings; the crust was a little crumbly however. Only wish we were here longer to try again!

We were all able to enjoy the amazing food and I did not have to worry one bit about getting gluten in my food. My husband has a really good curry dish and I had a phenomenal Alfredo pasta dish. What a treat to splurge on carbs. Well worth the visit.

So many things for my son to choose from, he was so happy. Everything was delicious too. One note--while almost everything on the menu is gluten free (they do have some beer) the one food item they have that is NOT gluten free is regular pizza crust--and for some reason they kind of assumed when we were talking about what we wanted to order they thought we wanted to order the wheat pizza! That would have been a disaster, so make sure you specify the gluten free pizza crust (and they have two, one is cauliflower). Wouldn't have known we needed to say that at a 'gluten free' restaurant.

Awesome, and great variety! Ate a few meals (lunch and dinner) here with my celiac husband (very sensitive) this week. All delicious and no reaction. He had buffalo baked wings, cheese bread, traditional side salad, apple & walnut Gorgonzola salad, chicken bacon & herbs pizza on gf crust (separate gf pizza oven), linguini and meatballs, Tuscan chicken breast, and hot apple crisp with vanilla gelato & coconut ice cream. So so good! Worthwhile! We were late arriving one evening due to a long hike so ordered takeout... good call because there was a long line there that night.

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.
