Tony Caputo’s Market & Deli is Salt Lake City’s leading purveyor of distinctive Regional Italian and Southern European foods. Tony Caputo, Caputo’s proprietor, and his son Matt, are locally renowned for their ability to select and create delectable and authentic food products from Italy, Spain, Greece, France and other Southern European countries.
In the Market, Caputo's proudly displays the largest selection of Italian and Southern European foods in Utah. In addition to the vast array of olive oils, olives, pasta, vinegars, antipasti and thousands of other specialty grocery items, Caputo's has recently made the following major advancements toward solidifying their position as one of the best specialty food markets in America:
Cheese Cave: Caputo's state of the art cheese cave is one of only a handful in the country. Many complex systems are set in place to replicate the perfect environment for aging cheeses. It allows Caputo's to offer over 200 perfectly fresh farmstead cheeses. Cheese fanatics are welcome to drool as they peer through the huge glass wall into the cave.
In House Salame Maker: With over 14 types of proscuitti and dozens of salami, including those made by the house salame maker, Cristiano Creminelli, Caputo's can claim the best cured meat selection in Utah and, possibly, in America. Cristiano's family has been hand making salame for over 400 years and their salumificio (salame shop) was named best in the entire region of Piedmont in 2006. In 2007, he came to Caputo's to make all natural salame with all natural Utah pork. Already, he has garnered many local and national awards for his "babies," which you can watch during the curing process through the glass doors of the curing cell.
Chocolate Central: Caputo's offers the largest selection of ultra premium chocolate in the United States, with over 300 different chocolate bars, including those most respected in the who's who of chocolatiers. Ask about the "chocolate file" and sample any bar. Caputo's is also the exclusive outlet in Utah for the best filled chocolates in the U.S., Chocolatier Blue. A gorgeous beveled glass case houses Chocolatier Blue's little masterpieces, which he hand makes using the world's best ingredients, including Amedei chocolate, a 77% butterfat, unpasteurized cream, fleur de sel sea salt and organic fruits and nuts.
The Deli is a bustling neighborhood lunch spot where customers line up out the door for a selection of made-to-order sandwiches, salads and pasta. Sandwiches are prepared on crusty Italian peasant bread, focaccia, or ciabatta, and with high quality meats and cheeses and other Regional Italian and Southern European ingredients fresh from their own Market.
Tony’s commitment to quality has won Caputo’s a myriad of awards, such as:
Best Italian Market and Best Sandwiches by the Salt Lake City Weekly Magazine
Best Deli by Salt Lake Magazine
Best Bang for Your Buck (Entire Rocky Mountain West) Zagat Survey
And many more
The signature sandwich, “The Caputo,” has been named third best sandwich in America by FHM magazine. It has also been awarded the title of best sandwich in Utah by the American Sandwich cookbook. The Meatball sandwich was also picked as one of the top ten sandwiches in America by Unlimited magazine.
Founded in 1997 in the heart of Salt Lake City’s historic Italian and Greek neighborhood, Caputo’s has become a Salt Lake City institution. Located in the same building as Carlucci’s Bakery and Aquarius Fish Market, it is a regular stop for “foodies,” lunch patrons, and cultural enthusiasts alike.
