Any time fig is involved, we are all about that!

Sauce Pizza & Wine continues its steady growth with the launch of its first Gilbert location now open in the Rivulon center at the corner of Gilbert Road and Rivulon Boulevard, just north of Loop 202. The fast-casual eatery is one of the first businesses to open in a new multi-tenant retail building, part of the 250-acre, mixed-use development. In honor of this opening, we will be giving away a $50 giftcard on Instagram. So be sure to head over there for the rules and enter!

Boasting a modern-industrial yet inviting interior and expansive patio, the new Sauce is housed in a 3,200-square-foot space that will mimic the aesthetics of existing locations with its partly open kitchen layout and a gas-fired pizza oven as the focal point.  The restaurant will also feature some unique elements while staying true to its already-popular menu and friendly customer service.

We’re looking forward to introducing the Sauce brand to the city of Gilbert and think Rivulon will make a great home for our first restaurant here,” says Scott Kilpatrick, CEO of Sauce Pizza & Wine.“Between the growing neighborhoods and large companies expanding into this area, we recognized the need for a family-friendly, fast-casual dining spot that serves high-quality, freshly-prepared food. We know that guests will be pleased with the addition.”


We’ve never met a bruschetta we didn’t like!

In addition to the eatery’s staple dishes (Wild Mushroom Pizza is our go to), the menu at Sauce will now feature new items such as Caprese Skewers, a Sopressata & Asparagus Bruschetta made with goat cheese, fresh garlic and house-made basil pesto and a Pesto & Marinated Tomatoes pasta tossed with house-made basil pesto and toasted pine nuts. New signature pizzas feature seasonal ingredients such as the Bacon & Brussels Sprouts and the Prosciutto & Fig topped with black mission figs, goat cheese and fresh arugula. Guests can choose from original thin or artisan hand-stretched crust that’s made from scratch, in-house daily. A gluten-free crust option is also available. Mainstay favorites will include an assortment of salads like the Italian Chopped with pepperoni, sopressata, smoked mozzarella, Kalamata olives and other Italian inspired ingredients plus paninis, desserts, and a variety of beer and wine including a selection on tap.

The new Gilbert location of Sauce Pizza & Wine is located at 75 E. Rivulon Blvd. and 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. For more information, visit or call 480-550-4000.
