Sauce Pizza & Wine opened the doors to its seventh Valley location in Phoenix. The fast-casual Italian restaurant located at 25 E. Camelback Road near Central and Camelback is the first site to open under the brand’s new owners led by local restaurateur, Scott Kilpatrick. Guests can expect the same great quality food and drinks, same friendly customer service, same inviting atmosphere but with a refreshed and reinvigorated design.
“We are proud to be expanding our presence in Phoenix,” said Kilpatrick. “We are especially excited about the look and feel of this restaurant and look forward to introducing the space to the Uptown neighborhood.”
Situated near a busy intersection in Uptown Phoenix, the charming 3,750-square-foot, white-brick building will serve as the home to the already popular dining spot. Unlike its predecessors, the new Sauce Pizza & Wine will feature an urban-like aesthetic. To add to the character of the building, the exterior walls have been hand-painted with an eye-catching mural of a Phoenix city street and woman in a headscarf and sunglasses. The restaurant also features a 400-square-foot patio covered with string lighting, radiating a metropolitan atmosphere. Inside, the space is more traditional to the brand, with retro-inspired chalkboard art carefully drawn by a local artist and a visible pizza oven behind the register.
The menu includes a variety of salads, such as the Quinoa, Beet & Arugula with golden beets, avocado, goat cheese, fuji apples and pistachios and a gluten-free favorite, the Turkey & Feta with corn, cucumber, tomato, avocado and almonds. The heart and soul of the menu includes a “build-your-own” pizza, where guests can choose original thin or artisan hand-stretched crust that’s made fresh, in-house daily. A gluten-free option is also available. Signature pizzas include the Chicken Pesto with fresh mozzarella and marinated tomatoes and the Spicy Chicken Sausage with poblano peppers and smoked mozzarella. Additional menu options include paninis and pastas such as the Mac ‘N Cheese, a guest favorite.
Sauce Pizza & Wine is open Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 10 p.m.
