This is not a restaurant but an extravaganza of quality Italian food that will blow your mind. I have been to many Italian specialty themed markets and this is the best by far. Everything is delicious but it comes at a price. Yes, it can get expensive but no more than if you go to an Italian restaurant.

The food at Joe Leone's is outstanding. It is fresh, homemade and delicious. I have used them for many catering jobs and have never been disappointed. I have also had them deliver lunches to my daughter's teachers as an end of the year gift and received overwhelming thanks. I cannot say enough about how amazing all the food is at... More

You can always get a great meal at Joe Leones. The owner is a great guy that always gives back to the community. Love their antipasto platters.

Their bread, fresh mozzarella and deli sandwiches are outstanding. I hear their prepared dinners are great, too but we tend to make those types of dishes ourselves.

Absolutely best Italian food. Bakery cold cuts prepared food. All good. Why do reviews insist on 100 words? I'm trying to say something nice about a place I like and your program insists on making me work.

Joe Leone's is a must stop on all my weekends down the shore. Let me start with the bread - oh my gosh - it is amazing and there are so many varieties available. I usually bring several loaves back home with me to PA and my friends love when I bring it for brunch or other get togethers. The... More

Whenever I visit a city, I make a special trip to visit the restaurant ranked #1 on Trip Advisor in that location. What surprised me is that I ended up visiting this place three days in a row on my four-day trip to Point Pleasant. I got one of the signature subs from the counter on the first day there... More
