In 1999, I fulfilled my desire for the love of food and cooking and opened Aleo Italian Specialties in Lincroft, NJ.  I proudly named the business after my grandfather Pasquale Aleo who was from Sicily, Italy.  He had a passion for cooking from when he was a child.  When he came to America he continued his passion for cooking and worked in several New York City restaurants. I'll always remember Sundays of my childhood which was our traditional family day. My grandfather would cook, and we would enjoy family time together. I was always intrigued with what he was making and how he made it and I would always want to help him cook. I always looked forward to his Sunday Sauce with meatballs or my favorite, Hot Sauce with scungilli and calamari.  I would watch him and ask questions as I helped him prepare our meals. He always took such pride in preparing fresh authentic meals for our family and it gave him great pleasure to see us all devour every bite.

My grandfather was an inspiration to me and  I take pride in creating exceptional home style cooking with only the freshest ingredients just as he did.  Our goal at Aleo Italian Specialties is to create traditional Italian cooking for all of my customers to enjoy.  Whether you have a busy day and on the run or catering for your special occasion, Aleo Italian Specialties will always be ready to serve you.  We appreciate your business over the years and thank you for being part of our family. Boun Appetito!

Some thank you notes from our customers...

"Just a little note to let you know I was in your store on Saturday, it was very busy. One of your employee's who waited on me, I had a lot of questions about how to make and cook the items I bought, he was so pleasant and informative in answering all of my questions and was very courteous. "I will be back."
Sincerely, F. in Colts Neck"
