Local chefs, Devon Sanner and Mat Cable, have officially announced the opening of what they’re describing as their “culinary bromance” restaurant project. Zio Peppe, located at 6502 E. Tanque Verde Rd., is opening up the restaurant for takeout and delivery — lunch and dinner — on Monday, May 10.

The new spot that’s located near the eastside is considered to be the Old Pueblo’s take on Italian-American cuisine, a “love letter to Tucson”, according to Tucson natives Sanner and Cable. Zio Peppe, which means “Uncle Joe” in Italian, is in part a tribute to Cable’s uncle, Joe Sottosanti, who opened Tucson’s first Sicilian pizza place, Tesseo’s Pizzeria, nearly 50 years ago.
