You have to watch for the weekly sale items for the best deals. I find some things just about every week to try or to "stock up" on. When they're busy, take a number and people watch while you look around. Check all the things offered from the olive station. The folks behind the counter a pretty proficient and friendly... More

I find the exterior of SOFO very misleading. It looks almost like bulk-foods grocer. However, inside it is a great little market. I have stopped in a few times now and everyone is really helpful. Excellent bakery with great discounts on day-old items. Great place to buy pre-made pizza crust (uncooked) and high end pizza toppings. My husband and I... More

We love shopping at Sofo's. They have everything you need to make an Italian dinner. Their pizza crusts and ingredients make it very easy to create homemade pizzas. The bakery is excellent - especially the pane, ciabatta, and Italian bread and rolls. The meat and deli counter is also very good, stocking a large variety of Italian meats and cheeses.

Specialty grocery with Italian emphasis. Fresh pizza crusts, sauce, meats and toppings here. Great butcher shop, bakery and wine selection. A real gem!

The last several times I have shopped at Sofo's I have been disappointed with their service at the meat counter. The store was not crowded, just 2 people in front of me, but they had only one person helping customers. Needless to say it was a slow process. Need to hire more staff to help serve the customer. I believe... More

Sofo is basically a mini Italian grocery store. It has the best pizza sauce and we always stop by there to stock up. They offer pretty much any Italian thing you could want including wine and beer. They've got a great meat counter and bakery. If you want to build your own pizza, they have all the supplies for you... More

This is a great little store to shop for italian goods and deli meat. They have the best prices in town on their deli meat and cheeses, with weekly specials you can't beat. If you want garlic rolls, they have the very BEST!! My grown children always ask for them when they are in town. Plus, if you are looking... More

This Italian grocery is loaded with traditional Italian items. Our visitors from NYC and Chicago are even impressed. My wife and I put together an antipasto platter for a New Year's Eve party we attended. It was cool picking ingredients that the store offers for great color and flavor. We topped the cheeses, marinated vegetables with fresh pepperoni and prosciutto.... More

They offer a good selection at their meat counter, have a large deli and bakery with a wonderful selection of breads and pastries. A great place to pick up Angus beef, lamb, veal or any of those special foods so popular during the holidays.

Love the cannolis! It is my favorite place to stop to get them! You can have them made fresh for you. However, I only gave them four out of five stars because they reduced the size of the cannolis in half but have kept the price the same.
