Tino’s Artisan Pizza Co. Opens in Jersey City

Written by:

A new pizzeria has taken over the old La Côte space in Jersey City! Tino’s Artisan Pizza Co. has officially opened at 199 Warren Street in the historic Paulus Hook, following the French-themed eatery’s closure earlier this year.

This location is Tino’s fourth location. The other three are situated in North Kingston, Ocean Grove, and Madison, NJ. Its mission is to bring “the most delicious home-style food with fresh, organic ingredients and the time-honored method of terra cotta oven cooking.” Read on to learn more about this new pizzeria, Tino’s Artisan Pizza Co., in Jersey City.

The Owner

Owner Tino Procaccini tells Hoboken Girl, “My crew and I just fell in love with the Paulus Hook neighborhood. We pick historical neighborhood towns [for the locations] because as we attempt to grow, we want to serve neighborhood families and not just those in transit. I chose Jersey City in hopes that the concept will gain more exposure in a much bigger city than our current locations.”

Tino’s prides itself on being all-natural Italian food using the “highest quality ingredients that are sustainable, local, and organic whenever possible.” All of the food is free of artificial preservatives, colors, sweeteners, flavors, and hydrogenated fats.

The Food

We don’t consider ourselves ‘just another pizzeria.’ I personally believe our business has grown because of our all-natural organic concept,” Procaccini shares. “None of our ingredients contain any type of preservatives, GMOs, antibiotics, etc. Our produce is all organic. Most ingredients are locally sourced. Everything is either baked or out of our 800-degree oven imported from Italy.”

To ensure this quality of food, the Pizza Co. has partnered with various businesses across the country including Hudson Bread in North Bergen NJ, Shore Seafood in Saxis, VA, Cannoli Factory in Long Island, NY, and N’duja Artisans in Chicago, IL.

The pizzeria has, well, more than just pizza. To start, you can choose from a variety of antipasti plates. Some intriguing options are the real antipasto {Italian cured meats and cheeses, marinated vegetables, and olives}, truffled honey and goat cheese bruschetta, and mamma’s meatballs {grass fed beef, veal and pork, Sunday sauce, and shaved parmigiano}.

There are also salads such as the strawberry, feta, spring mix one {called Fragola}, the pear, gorgonzola, and walnut one {called La Pera}, and burrata with a stracciatella center.

For meal options, patrons can choose from a selection of cold and hot subs, and pasta dishes. The Tortelloni, Nona’s spaghetti, and meatballs, and stuffed rigatoni with ricotta and mozzarella all sound delicious. The specialty of course is the pizza, which has five different crust options: regular, sourdough, gluten-free, cauliflower, and focaccia. And, the owner mentions, the pizzas “take 90 seconds to bake!”

Some of the pizzas include silician tomato pie, parm pie, Tartufo {made with sausage, cremini mushrooms, and white truffle oil}, roman zucchini, short rib {made with beef short rib, caramelized red onion, provolone, and baby arugula}, and Raffaella {which is made with roasted garlic, hot pepperoncino paste, shaved parm, and parsley}.

Lastly, they offer some traditional dolce/dessert-like the tiramisu, cannolo rolatin {pizza crust, chocolate chip cannoli cream, and strawberries}, and gelato and sorbet.

Expanding to Jersey City

Fun fact: Tino’s Artisan Pizza Co. used to be called “Osteria Procaccini” when it was originally founded in 1999 at the Kingston location. Then, “after many years of dealing with, ‘how do you pronounce your name,’ or ‘how do you spell your business name?’ along with expanding this artisan pizza concept into multiple units,” the name was rebranded in 2011 to what it’s called now. 

I’m just so passionate about what we do that it never gets old for me. I’m hoping Jersey City is a success and we look forward to serving this area for years to come,” Procaccini adds.

The hours of Tino’s in Jersey City, as indicated on the website found here, are 11:30AM to 9PM 7 days a week. It is open for pickup and takeout service. Please note the restaurant is a BYOB restaurant. You can subscribe on the website to receive news and updates, and also follow them on Facebook.
