I can eat Pizza safely again -- gluten free in Phoenix!

This location is always very good. The staff knows us and we always get great service and food. I am gluten free by celiac disease and my daughter is vegetarian. We try to eat organic whenever possible and Picazzo's makes that so easy!

If you come in between 3 and 6 you can get Happy Hour deals which include any appetizer for half off. DEAL!

I recommend the cheese bread, caprese salad and the portobello mushroom has the best balsamic I have ever tasted. I am talking plate licking good! The meatballs and stuffed pepper are good as well. I will say there is a bit of a kick to the pepper but not so bad that you can't enjoy it. My mom swears by the baked wings.

My favorite pizza is the gluten free Diavola. It has the most delectable caramelized onions and red, orange and yellow bell peppers combined with pepperoni and andouille sausage. It is Ah-mazing! The crust is the least crispy gluten free crust I have had.

I also like the Cheese Ravioli Carbonara. They don't skimp on the Pancetta but I've also subbed out chicken for it and it is equally good.

The Three Cheese Baked Cannelloni is my third home run item. Not that I could put them in order. The red sauce is honestly one of the best I have ever had.

Skillet brownie or chocolate chip cookie with coconut milk ice cream tops of the meal if you have room.

One of only TWO places in the entire area that I can have gluten free apps, main meal and dessert. Score!

I am passionate about Picazzo's because I know they will prepare my food safely and it will taste great!

They do NOT want celiac/gf sensitive guests!

The coffee is very good. HOWEVER, ***Please Read***** I had a huge long chat with the owner TWICE. He finally sat down and chatted. They are NOT safe for celiac. He said there is a disclaimer on a sign up by the register (NOT on the menu) I never saw it.

They don't have a separate prep area, they use the SAME toaster for everything and they use the same cutting board and knife. He told me they cater to the "fad dieters" who want gluten free items. I should have had a clue when a waitress told me that she had several customers "cheat" and try their mini donuts, even though they are full of gluten!!!! What the what???

The cook (or dude) who brought the plates out was DOWN RIGHT RUDE and told us that, while they prepared ours "special" that they basically didn't want to deal with the prep involved in the future. NOT IMPRESSED and will never return!
