TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — A new restaurant has opened on Tucson's east side on Tanque Verde Road.

Zio Peppe is headed up by two popular chefs Devon Sanner and Matt Cable. Both chefs have a strong history in the local restaurant industry, and the restaurant features a mix of Italian and Sonoran flavors.

Right now, the restaurant is only offering take-out and delivery services.

Zio Peppe says it will open for dine-in services starting June 1.

The owners believe making local flavors the centerpiece of their menu---will bring in customers.

Chef and owner Devon Sanner said "I think this place is definitely distinguished by the local flavor focus. We are incorporating a lot of the flavors of Tucson city of gastronomy. Flavored to the Sonoran region, but we will also have comfort classics like fettuccine Alfredo and margarita pizza".

Zio Peppe is located at 6502 E Tanque Verde Road and is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
