He has an overwhelming variety of imported Products....Super super expensive. he could Lower his Prices so everyone could shop here, not just the Bay Head, Point pleasant high earning crowd. He should think about the Blue collar workers needing food.

OMG!!! I love this place! I drive 25 miles once a week to buy their food. I am 100% Italian and this place is delicious! There are alot of Italian markets by my house, but this is the best and worth the drive. Their sandwiches are made to order and their hot food is great!

After reading the rave reviews, we stopped here to pick up lunch. We ordered a traditional Italian hero and a meatball parm hero. I had the meatball parm. I should have thought twice when the cheese wasn't melted and the meat wasn't piping hot but I didn't. I ate half and my husband ate a quarter of the other half.... More

The go to place when you have a craving for a sandwich or take out, a great place to get carried away and fill your fridge. The only drawback is the cost- it is a little pricey- but you get what you pay for.

Visited on a number of occasions whilst on holiday in Point Pleasant. What a place, everything we tried from meatballs to fresh mozzarella was awesome. But the icing on the cake were their dips, Cheese & Horseradish blew my mind - literally a couple of times. Feel the burn. Great place and great food, but always busy & it certainly... More

If you don't want to cook for a week. come to Leone's. Take home a little Italian for each day of the week. Their fresh mozzarella is great. Sandwich area is awesome but a little slow. If you don't have time to wait for your sandwich to be hand crafted don't bother. If prices better and the sandwich line wasn't... More
