10 Best Restaurants in Scottsdale with Gluten-Free Menus

Scottsdale's diverse restaurant scene means there are plenty of places to enjoy a gluten-free meal. One of the best places to chow down on a fresh, flavorful meal is at True Food Kitchen. The menu is based on the anti-inflammatory principles developed by renown holistic guru Dr. Andrew Weil. Dozens of the sandwiches, salads, and other menu items are gluten-free and crafted from fresh, organic ingredients. 

If you're craving fresh-baked goods, Scottsdale is home to one of the city's only gluten-free bakeries. Gluten Free Creations serves up a huge daily assortment of gluten-free scones, muffins, donuts, bagels, muffins, pie, and even specialty cakes. If you've ever felt deprived by the lack of gluten-free baked goods, Gluten Free Creations will hit the spot. 

Craving authentic deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza? Head to Spinato's Pizzeria, a venerable local chain that offers a special 10-inch pie made from gluten-free dough. Another great option for pizza and pasta dishes is Picazzo's Organic Italian Kitchen, where nearly everything on the menu is available as a gluten-free item. 

Finally, for a winning gastropub fare that offers plenty of gluten-free appetizers and entrees, try TapHouse Kitchen in Scottsdale's Hilton Village. All gluten-free items are clearly labeled on the menu. Try the grilled lamb chops, which are served with a jalapeno mint jam.
