Our aim is to offer the most delicious home-style food with fresh, all natural and organic ingredients. We are proud of bringing something different to New Jersey by introducing artisanal pizzas, salads and specialty dishes made with passion for excellence and our most important secret ingredient: love. By the way, even though we are a table service concept, don't be fooled we are still just as fast as most quick service concepts out there for those that are always on the run or have a time constraint.
Tino's Artisan Pizza Co. concept is all natural Italian food using the highest quality ingredients that are sustainable, local & organic whenever possible, like things used to be. Our passion is great food & sharing it with our extended family, YOU ALL! Our food is free of artificial preservatives, colors, sweeteners, flavors, & hydrogenated fats to promote healthier eating.
We make every effort to be environmentally friendly, operating our family business with green standards in hopes of a better environment for future generations. These standards include recycling, composting waste, cleaning with natural agents, & using paper products & supplies from 100% recycled materials. Our vision ranges from Papa Tino growing all our fruits & veggies during the Jersey growing season to using to go plasticware that is made from non-GMO vegetable starch.
Through the humble upbringing of his Italian immigrant parents from Molise, Italy, owner/operator Tino Procaccini always had a taste for the kitchen. Every summer Tino would visit the homeland and that is when he became increasingly passionate about his Italian roots and the unique foods they so proudly prepared.
Ambitious and determined, in 1999, Tino opened his first restaurant while at the same time pursuing a business degree at Rider University. With his prior experience working at Whole Foods Market, he realized that as life became increasingly fast-paced and the trend toward eating healthier, it was time to move away from a full-seat restaurant and bar that he originally opened. This is when Tino’s Artisan Pizza Co. was born.
With only 500 square feet, our first and smallest unit began in the historical town of Kingston, N.J. Quickly gaining recognition from many local publications and eventually even the New York Times. Tino was able to create a quick service concept with a full-service dining experience and exceptional pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and more.
Today we have six locations in and around New Jersey, with hopes of expanding even further.
