  • This store is a must for true foodies. With the biggest cheese selection in Boston, South End Formaggio also sells specialty beers and select wines. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Awesome craft beer and chocolate selection (they carry evil twin and mast brothers chocolate)
  • Obviously the cheese is amazing here and the staffs nows their s#%^ but I always go for 3 things: 1. The olive mista is amazing 2. The 15 and under wine table always has great wines 3. Baguettes
  • For locally made pasta, check out their selection from Pastaio Via Corta!
  • Italian on focaccia.
  • Beautiful location, beautiful store, beautiful cheeses.
  • Ridiculous sandwiches. The motherload of cheese. Also great wines!
  • A wonderful selection of cheese and wine and a staff that is extremely helpful!
  • Nice place,trendy food items and fancy salts. I dropped more money next door in funky Syrian place. They had Bosnian condiments and soaps from Lebanon. I hope the Syrian guy makes it.
  • Love the cheese selection and the service is excellent.
  • Really good tuna melt. Contains red onions, which is risky, but they make it work.
  • The Almond Bridal cookies by the register will knock your socks off.
  • great foodie shop
  • Spicy Italian
  • amazing store of cheese and deli
  • Great cheese selection and dried meats woah! Also, cute staff and very knowledgable on BK made granola!

  • Best sandwiches in the South End. Try the Spicy Italian, but get there early as they only have a limited number each day.
  • Goat cheese, Arugula and fig sandwich. Amazing. Get it.
  • Try their French-style chocolate covered macaroon. It's the best I've ever had!
