Spinato’s Pizzeria & Family Kitchen has opened a new modern restaurant at the Gilbert Epicenter at Agritopia.

Epicenter is found in the heart of Agritopia, a vertical mixed-use development helping to shape the commercial brick-and-mortar of the town of Gilbert.

The new Spinato’s Pizzeria & Family Kitchen restaurant is at 3150 E. Ray Road in Gilbert.

Anthony Spinato, CEO and co-owner of Spinato’s Pizzeria & Family Kitchen, said the decision to expand to Gilbert was an easy one, once he learned about Epicenter at Agritopia.

“Steve Churchi, president of the Arizona Restaurant Association, introduced us to Joe Johnston, founder of Johnston & Co., and as soon as we learned the vision for Epicenter, we knew it would be a perfect fit,” Mr. Spinato said adding that Gilbert’s strong family demographic aligns with Spinato’s family-friendly culture.

Best known for its classic Chicago-style pizza with a signature sweet sauce, representatives of the brand report, the popular restaurant also features a diverse menu, with everything from pizza and sandwiches, robust pastas and spaghetti-stuffed calzones to gluten-free and vegan options, fresh signature salads and Spinato’s famous home-made Italian desserts.

The Gilbert restaurant features 4,650 square feet inside, and a spacious outdoor patio that seats 76, both at tables and in a lounge area. The restaurant can also accommodate large parties both inside and outside. In addition, Epicenter residents ordering take-out can pick up their food from a private area within the restaurant. Delivery options are also available, both through Spinato’s staff and Door Dash.

“With each new restaurant, we strive to fit the demographics of the patrons we will be serving. While some elements may connect to another Spinato’s location, we want every restaurant to be something you may not expect from a pizzeria,” Mr. Spinato said in a prepared statement. “We’re committed to providing an exceptional experience, so our ambiance must stand alongside the level of guest service, cleanliness and quality of food we provide.”

The Spinato family is serving a new vegan pizza option at the Gilbert restaurant. Earlier this year, Spinato’s introduced a new gluten-free cauliflower crust option for all pizzas except any that are made with meatballs.

The new vegan pizza, first available at the Gilbert restaurant, is available on Spinato’s regular crust at any size as a build your own option, and also on their gluten-free crust which is also vegan friendly, but it is only available as a 10” and starts at $15.50 (also a build your own option).

Spinato’s rolled out a new Buffalo Chicken Pizza on May 2 at all six locations that will be available through June 30. The delicious pizza features medium buffalo sauce base, house-grilled chicken, red onion, chive, mozzarella, gorgonzola, ranch and medium buffalo sauce drizzle.

“We’ve been so humbled by how the Gilbert community has embraced news about our new restaurant,” Mr. Spinato said. “We honestly did not expect so much passion, and it has validated our choice to expand there. We are excited to become integrated into their community and support local causes as community is one of our four core values.”
