Ah you already know Picazzo's :)

I've heard of at least 2 other gluten-free-friendly places - last year I ended 2 yrs of living in Phx.

But I can't recall them at all. :(

I'm quite sure I heard of them thru the Phx (or AZ) Celiac group on Yahoo, but can't find the link. Should be easy to find. (I'd do it for you if not browsing on a phone)

Here's one from http://www.phoenixceliac.com/PhoenixCeliac_Restaurants.html

Heartline Cafe, 1610W. Highway 89A, Sedona (928) 282-0785 , Very gluten-free Friendly. - 10/07

Should be a GREAT trip!!! :)

If you happen to be coming up to Flagstaff (it's only about 30 minutes away), we have a few chain restaurants such as Outback and Chili's with gluten-free menus. Also, there is a Picazzo's in Flagstaff as well. There is a good health food store in both Sedona and Flagstaff called New Frontiers, where you can pick up some gluten-free food for snacks, etc. The one in Sedona is much bigger and nicer.

Hope this helps.

9/17/09 Just left picasso's in Sedona AZ and I would not recommend them to anyone. I was so excited to have a gluten free pizza eating out. Gave our order and after 1 1/2 hrs wait, without ANYONE checking on us or adding drinks... we finally asked and the waiter sheepishly said he "forgot" to enter our order. This was at 3:30pm and they were not busy. I was most upset that the waiter never checked back with us at all, no one else checked in a slow restaurant you would think we would stand out. The manager did offer a gift card which I chose to decline. I will never recommend this place to anyone. I felt as if we were not as important as other customers in that place. It is bad enough we have limited choices in restaurants without feeling invisible or humiliated in waiting for nothing.

For those that have positive experiences, please let these folks know how important their service to us is, particularly in this electronic age! I have never been one to bad mouth places, but this was the most awful experience with a restaurant ever, and I am 56 y.o. I have never sent food back, and am willing to forgive what I feel are small issues, but totally ignoring a customer after forgetting to enter their order is incredible. And the manager was just as bad, I never felt like he truly understood how important this was to me. It was sort of "Aw shucks, maam. I am sorry." Thanks for hearing my lunchtime disaster. :angry:

So sorry you had this experience! I love Sedona. Can't think of a more beautiful place in the world. Hope to own a second home there someday. If you are still there, try New Frontiers health food store, they do have a sort of like small cafeteria there with very good food. They may have hot gluten free food. I was there before I found out my status, so I can not say for sure, but it's a good bet. I hope you have a safe journey home.

cpag53: Sorry you had a bad experience, but is one bad apple worth ruining a terrific gluten-free restaurant--one of the few that will serve delicious gluten-free pizza? Picazzo's has gone out of their way to design a gluten-free menu, and even have a separate part of the kitchen for gluten-free food.

I would have taken the free gift card and come back another time. And after 30 minutes, I'd be asking where my pizza was.

I was in Sedona just a couple of weeks ago. We went to Picazzo's and I get very ill. We were also there in the summer and went to Picazzo's. They brought me a salad with croutons - this after waiting a very long time to get my food. They did change it out and I did not get sick that time. I go to Picazzo's all the time in Scottsdale and have never had a bad experience. I will not go back to Picazzo's in Sedona. It's not worth the risk to me.

We also ate at Oaxaca - Mexican food. I thought it was pretty good and our server knew all about gluten free and told us that the chips were made in a dedicated fryer so not to worry about cross contamination. He actually used those words.

We also ate at Enchantment Resort. We called ahead to see if they could accommodate me. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. My husband order a flourless chocolate cake (it was my birthday) and all four of us were in heaven eating it.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
