It all started in 1985 in the small town of Century, Florida when Joe Lasala and Brian Toscano opened a Philadelphia style deli and sandwich shop (The Sandwich Deli) which is still owned and operated by Joe’s brother Paul and his family. After returning north two years later to open another family deli just outside Philadelphia, PA followed by a salon and spa in Southern New Jersey, they relocated to Baldwin County in 2007 and decided to bring all of the homemade specialties to the Gulf Coast with “GELATO JOE’S”!!!!!!!
We are definitely the place for your above average “foodie”! At Gelato Joe’s we have over thirty different varieties of panini’s, hoagies, sandwiches and wraps. Every day we have healthy salads and homemade soups. Our lunch specials include Italian meatball sandwiches, Philadelphia cheese-steak paninis, ravioli and pasta dishes. Or get a sandwich or wrap made just the way you want. We have a variety of dinners specials and everyday “All -You-Can-Eat-Pasta” is available for $10.
