I just got off the phone with the spokeswoman for the new Picazzo's Organic Italian Kitchen at 7850 N. Oracle Road, in Oro Valley, and she says it’s open for business.
In this week’s Noshing Around I reported that Picazzo’s wouldn’t be open until June, which was what the spokeswoman told me when we spoke a couple weeks back. She said today that things came together much faster than she had anticipated, and that she's been slammed with business ever since the doors opened.
Anyway, we wanted you to know that Picazzo’s is open. We’ve already gotten e-mails offering glowing reviews of their gluten-free options — all pizzas can be ordered regular or gluten-free — and a restaurant manager said 90 percent of their ingredients are either organic or natural. The eatery also offers non-dairy cheeses for people who are lactose intolerant.
