The popular west-side pizza and wings joint Bianchi's Italian opened its second location in Marana today, in the former home of the 7,000-square-foot The Steak Out restaurant.
The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and 11 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays.
Owner Vincent Bianchi says the new spot at 3640 W. Tangerine Road will feature the same menu as the original, with fast-casual service and a significantly larger bar. The new location will also feature the same lunch and dinner specials, featuring plates like beef lasagna, linguini with clam sauce and eggplant parmesan for $11 and under.
The space features a patio area and a private dining room for 60 people, which will be used for catering events and parties.
The Bianchi family restaurant, which has been at 1110 N. Silverbell Road since the early '80s, serves a diverse menu with pastas, sub sandwiches, calzones and gluten-free pizza. Vincent, who took over the business from his parents Randy and Nancy in 2002, works in the kitchen preparing all of the sauces each day.
The new location also delivers to nearby neighborhoods around Dove Mountain, Rancho Vistoso and La Cañada. As yet, they don't have the permits to deliver alcohol like they do at the west-side location.
