Joe Leone’s Italian Specialty Store, the fountainhead of Joe Leone’s culinary endeavors, stands in its original location as the realization of one man’s dream to provide food aficionados with the flavors & aromas of Italy.
An expansion of this dream was realized with the opening of Joe Leone’s Gastronomia in Sea Girt, New Jersey, in June of 2008.
The flagship location in Point Pleasant Beach boasts a larger variety of Italian imported groceries and prepared items than the Sea Girt satellite store, but both locations have much to offer.
You will find the finest selection of vinegars, oils, meats, cheeses, pastas, sauces, and seasonings imported from all the unique regions of Italy. Our trained retail associates will assist you with the utmost courtesy in selecting your desired items, slicing the meats & cheeses of your choice, and packaging your cold salads & hot prepared dishes.
To the delight of those in the know, both locations offer Joe Leone’s fresh mozzarella, which is made by hand every morning in small batches. Equably notable is the exclusive assortment of artisan breads, fresh every day from our bakery.
The highlight of our retail establishments are the Daily Specials. Prepared on location by our culinary team under the direction of head chef Joe Leone, these delectable dishes are comprised of both traditional Italian recipes & modern creative variations. Sea Girt’s Gastronomia offers a limited selection from the Daily Specials Menu.
Here at Joe Leone’s, items such as Prosciutto di Parma, Rigatoni, Focaccia, Locatelli Romano, Sfogliatelle, Mortadella, Bucatini, Calamari, and Ciabatta are enthusiastically offered daily. They delight our taste buds. If this is a trait you share, we invite you to find out what we bring to the table, and hopefully bring it to yours.
