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

First time in Jersey I saw this on trip advisor, and didn't read the reviews before going. I expected an Italian diner/cafe. Was very surprised to see everything market style with cooked and uncooked meals sold by the pound in individual containers. Selection of protein options were great, however I would have liked to see more veggies or pastas as... More

Update -- the prepared short ribs are super-awesome!!!! Especially with the prepared broccoli Rab Best prepared foods in ocean and Monmouth counties. Meatballs are a don't miss. Also great chicken parm and prosciutto mozzarella balls.

This market has very good food and take out dinners. The place is very clean. They have everything you can think of. Their prices are little expensive but it is worth the money

They have a wonderful prepared food section. We say let's go to Leon's for one's and twos because when you see the prepared food you say I'll take one of those and 2 of those. Entire Italian deli is great, lots of specialty items. Great breads

Let me start by saying "if I could clone Joe Leone, I would." Heck of a nice guy, great service, and exceptional food. With that being said, I was a little bit more than disappointed recently. My sister and I stopped by the Pt Pleasant store the other day to pick up some of our favorites for our families for... More

At a loss for where to go to get some dinner, we ended up at Joe Leone's. Lucky us. This an upscale deli with lots of hot and cold prepared dishes. There are separate areas for hot foods, sandwiches, salads, olives and baked goods. They have a large and changing menu of items. We took home some spinach salad, vodka... More
