Sauce Pizza & Wine, which in late 2014 split off from the Fox Restaurant Concepts group of eateries, opened the doors to its seventh Valley location in September.
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 food and drinks, same customer service, same atmosphere—but with a refreshed and reinvigorated design.
The repurposed 3,750-square-foot, white-brick building is a former office building and features 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 heart and soul of the menu is 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. Additional menu options include salads, paninis and pastas such as the Mac ‘N Cheese, a guest favorite.
Sauce Pizza & Wine is open Sunday through Thursday from 1 a.m.-9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. For more information, visit www.saucepizzaandwine.com or call 602-845-7007.
