Tasty cheeses & fab chocolate class! – I visited Caputo's as one of the Sassies from SassyScoops. We were able to sample a few cheeses, take a look at their phenomenal (yet slightly creepy due to all the fuzzy stuff growing) cheese cave, and sit in on the Intro to Fine Chocolate class. I was amazed by how much Matt knew about both cheese and chocolate. Pretty much everyone who works there seriously knows their stuff!
The Intro to Fine Chocolate class was very educational, but don't go expecting to play/cook/bake with chocolate. For some reason I had it in my head that's what we'd be doing. But it was still interesting nonetheless. I only wish the deli had been open late so we could munch while we listened.
The market there is almost overwhelming with all the fine foods. I didn't do nearly enough shopping. I do wish it had a bit better location as far as parking goes, but if you go during off hours you should be okay.
If you want to read our full review on Caputo's you can check it out on SassyScoops. I'll definitely be back!
Good Food/Decent Price – I visited Tony Caputo's today and tried both their Prosciutto Sandwich and their Lasagna. The sandwich was good, but far from the best sandwich I have ever had. I don't feel it was quite worth the $8.25 I spent on it. I tried their lasagna. This was a pleasant surprise. Usually, lasagna from a deli will taste like it came from a can and the noodles are rubbery. This was not the case. The noodles were perfectly cooked. The sauce didn't taste mass produced or like it came from a can or powder mixture. The meat was great with a small hint of spice, similar to a spicy sausage. I was very happy with it. The staff was great. Everyone greeted me with a smile and treated me with kindness. I will go back and try other menu items. I doubt that I will try another sandwich however. I feel as though I can get more of a better product somewhere else for a comparable price.
Roasted Peppers on Focaccia – The deli was closed so we settled for the cafe. I ordered the roasted peppers on focaccia and was served a crumbly focaccia drenched in balsamic vinegar and topped with old dried up cheese slices and very COLD red peppers.
The sandwich is a good concept and I would STRONGLY suggest it become a warm sandwich with FRESH cheese and properly hydrated focaccia, maybe even a flavored focaccia. At almost $9.00 I deserved better!
We will stick with the deli and skip the café next time. We were VERY disappointed.
Just a notch or two above GROSS – I see it has been a while since someone wrote a review. New to SLC, I heard people say Caputo's was pretty good. When I went in I was almost aghast at what I saw behind the glass display. Things that looked as if they had been there for days... or longer... that I would never ingest myself, let alone feed to my dog. I was hungry and parking was a bitch (oh and God forbid if you should have business with someone NOT Caputo's in the same building - the parking nazi will come after you) so I ordered a sandwich on what was supposed to be focaccia bread. Seemed more like an inflated pita... or something. Sandwich was unremarkable other than that. Perhaps I was still put off by the visions of old food behind the glass... or the stench of dead fish coming from the joint next door. Um, fish isn't supposed to smell bad if you are going to eat it... hello? I want to go back to California where they know what to do with food.
And WHY is the FADED, TATTERED flag flying at half-mast in December 2009? You need to follow US regulations regarding display of our flag.
Love the food and the staff! – This is an all time favorite of ours that we frequent almost every weekend (when we can). Love the meatball sandwiches, pesto pasta, lasagna, caprese salad.... The food is always fresh and the staff is very friendly. With the new expansion of the market to include the deli, we can grab some food to make later. We also love their selection of chocolate :)
Can no one make a Muffulletta in SLC? – Been trying to find a decent mufulletta since I moved here in March from Atlanta. Tony Caputo doesnt know what he is doing either. A couple of pointers, you don't make a mufulletta with focacia bread or french bread, or any other bread for that matter. French bread - if that is what it actually is (according to their menu) is way to heavy and does not have sesame seeds. Mufulletta bread is the only right bread for this sandwich - large and round, not heavy, easy to eat. The olive spread is all wrong also. Olives with pickled cauliflower, celery, peppers - and it should all be ground up, not too finely - a nice relish. Caputo's is just sliced olives and peppers.
Its an okay italian sandwich, not a mufulletta.
Best Deli in town – This place is great! I go to this place as often as I can to get the Italian Cold Cut. The food is very high quality, and the market has a great collection of meats and cheeses. Additionally, their chocolate cake is amazing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Sandwich Dry And not a value People not nice – I decided to try this deli Caputosand I was so unhappy.I got a meatball sandwich and it was nothing to brag about! The Bread was dry and there wasent a whole lot of anything on it.I recommend Grove Market Deli to all of you ,There is a meatball sandwich to die for and the cost is about half.I am sorry to Caputos but it is the truth. And at groves you are treated like a king or queen they don't act like there doing you a favor to serve you like Caputos does.A very unsatisfied customer I won't ever be back
Great Service, Great Food! – Tony Caputo is not only one of the friendliest businessmen in SLC, but he also operates one of the greatest delis I have ever been to! The food is terrific and varied, they offer catering too! Also, the market next door is a DREAM for a foodie. Not to mention the Hot Counter Boy, Sam. He's the one usually taking orders in the Deli.
Great Food – The Caputo and the Meatball sandwiches are to die for. The service is pretty quick and place is generally full. You'll leave with a smile on your face.
