Via Sofia's / Sister of Zio Johno's

Via Sofia’s is a sister-company to Zio Johno’s, a Cedar Rapids, Iowa favorite since 1984. The business started back when John Khairallah arrived in Cedar Rapids and invested his savings in an Italian restaurant across the street from Coe College. Business was slow at first, but as word got around, the Italian restaurant began to thrive.

Via Sofia’s has the same menu items as Zio Johno’s. The counter-service eatery also serves breakfast, coffee and ice cream. We are open from 6:00am – 11:00pm, 7 days a week.

Via Sofia's is a proud supporter of Empowering our Community:

The purchase of an EOC Empowerment Card from a participating non-profit gives you access to our discounts as well as all other participating EOC businesses for the next 12 months. Go to and start Empowering Our Community today.
