Sauce Pizza & Wine opened the doors to its fourth Tucson location this week. The fast-casual Italian restaurant located at 6450 E. Grant Road is the first site to open in Tucson under the new owners (led by restaurateur, Scott Kilpatrick).
Situated near the intersection of Grant and Wilmot, the newly built 3,200-square-foot building serves as the home to the already popular eatery.
Guests familiar with the concept can expect the same taste of fresh ingredients and friendly customer service in a quick and casual setting. The new Sauce Pizza & Wine also boasts a modern interior with locally-made sunbaked adobe throughout and large sliding windows that give the space an indoor-outdoor feel.
“We are thrilled to be expanding Sauce in Tucson—this is where it all began,” said Kilpatrick. “We are especially excited about the look and feel of this particular location and look forward to introducing our vision for the brand to the community.”
The Sauce menu includes a variety of salads, paninis, and pastas. The heart and soul of the menu, however, are the Signature Pizzas, where guests can choose from original thin or artisan hand-stretched crust - both are made from scratch in-house daily. A gluten-free option is also available.
The Kids Menu has three options, each for $5: grilled cheese, mac 'n cheese, and pasta with red sauce + mozzarella. Includes a roll and kid's drink.
Of course, you can also expect a selection of beers and wine - plus a small dessert menu (including the new pizza cookie for $6!).
