Alessio’s has been a fan favorite since it opened its doors at 539 Park Avenue at the height of the pandemic lockdown. It quickly became known for its pizza, gelato, pastries, and all-around great quality products. Last year, Alessio’s had two kiosk locations at Pier A Park in Hoboken, serving up favorites from the Italian spot’s menu. This year, the one Pier A kiosk is back — and there will also be another one opening up soon in the Northwest Resiliency Park. Read on to learn more about Alessio’s and its Hoboken outposts.
Per Alessio’s Instagram, the Pier A Park kiosk is now open on the weekends — extended hours will be announced once summer approaches. The Northwest Resiliency Park kiosk will be opening soon, according to Patch. In 2022 Alessio’s bid to run two kiosks was approved at a City Council meeting after previously using one kiosk in 2021. The Italian spot’s location at Pier A for the past two years served up many of the popular dishes from the main cafe.
“We are very excited, we have been working on this for a few months now! It’s a great opportunity for us and especially for Hoboken residents and visitors who can finally find drinks and food options at [the] park,” Infantino told The Hoboken Girl in 2021.

Luca hopes to continue to grow Alessio’s even further. “I am always looking for opportunities for growth, and potential partnerships, maybe a seasonal store in the Hamptons next year and dreams to scale the business up nationwide,” he explained.
Alessio’s also announced plans to open up a Jersey City Heights outpost in April, which is looking to open up this summer.
Alessio’s is owned by Luca Infantino, an Italian native. He fell in love with Hoboken and knew that this is where he wanted to open a business. The eatery was named after his son.
The café serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as gelato and pastries. Some of the popular products include the Pizza alla Pala Metro Style, many sandwiches and paninis, and of course, the imported gelato, straight from Italy.

“Some of my favorite dishes from the cafe are the Morning Wrap and the Bold and Beautiful for breakfast, as well as the Parma and The Hoboken and the Venezia paninis. I love my strong coffee and cold brew as well as our imported gelato,” said Luca.
