Tony is one of the best among us. I worked at the shelter when he opened his
first deli down in the area. He not only did not move in and start complaining
about the homeless he reached out to the shelter and those we served with love
and compassion. Over the years I watched him interact with some of the most
elite in our community and the homeless man in pioneer park, he always treats
everyone with the same level of human decency and respect regardless of thier
station on life.
Tony has been an inspiration in business and an excellent restaurant owner and
manager all of the years I have known him. He was general manager of
Francesco's restaurant for many years in the 70's and 80's. I had
the pleasure of working with him, Chris Hase and other members of the Caputo
family. He has spent a lifetime creating and presenting excellent food and
restaurants for all of us to enjoy. It is great to have another generation of
Caputo's to carry on this great tradition.
What an awesome story on an awesome family. Everytime I make it to the big city
I meet up with my buddies at Caputos for chao.
We love the Caputo's in Holladay and routinely walk there as a family for
dinner. About a month ago I took a friend and our three year old kids there for
dinner. It was Jazz on the Plaza night, and there weren't any seats,
except for one table that I thought was holding drinks for the band. We found a
spot on the edge of a planter, and must have looked a little uncomfortable (I
was also over 30 weeks pregnant) because before long a man walked up to us and
said 'if I go get that table and bring it out here, would that make you
more comfortable?' And I said 'oh no, don't worry about it, I
think the band is using that table'. And he said 'Well, this is my
place, and if that table and chairs would make you more comfortable I'll go
get it and bring it out here for you.' Sure enough, it was Tony Caputo
himself. That one interaction took my loyalty to a whole new plane. Love love
I love this shop. There is clearly a real passion to every thing that he does.
Thank you for bringing some really high quality food to Salt Lake City!
The Caputo family is a asset to Utah food, and downtown. Thanks for all the
