Il nostro cibo.
Our food.

Soffritto’s name derives from the very thing that is most important to us: food. Soffritto comes from the Italian verb soffriggere, which means to brown or fry slightly. Many Italian recipes begin with a soffritto, a lightly fried mixture of onions, celery, and carrot, sautéed in olive oil, thus imparting their flavors to any ingredient that follows.

Soffritto prides itself on its innovative family recipes and passion that goes into every individual dish. They believe the key to high quality food begins with a commitment to only the freshest of ingredients, and ensure that every ingredient is hand-picked by our experienced chefs.

From traditional coastal Italian dishes to new and inspired flavors, Soffritto aims at meeting every customers needs and desires. Every dish is prepared to order, with an emphasis on taste and presentation.

We are notorious for our homemade ingredients, including fresh homemade mozzarella, focaccia bread, linguini, and gnocchi. Soffritto receives great acclaim for their acute awareness to different customers’ dining preferences, including our gluten-free menu and abundance of vegetarian alternatives.
