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. The café announced via Instagram on May 19th that it will be opening a second location at the kiosk in Pier A Park. Read on to learn more about Alessio’s new Hoboken outpost along the pier.
Expanding to Pier A
“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 Hoboken Girl. “Luca is aiming for the Pier A location to be open by Memorial Day Weekend or early June.
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 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.
