Tony & Alba’s Family Recipes Live on in San Jose
As the last family-owned location of the Tony & Alba franchise, Tony & Alba’s Pizza & Pasta in San Jose is owned by Al and his wife, Diana, who is the daughter of founders, Tony and Alba Salciccia. The restaurant believes in honest, simple ingredients that create the best dishes by ensuring dish features its own house-made sauces developed from ripened San Joaquin Roma tomatoes.
Each pizza dough takes 3 days to make, so there’s ample time for the yeast, sugar, and herbs to create the dough’s unique flavor. One great thing about Tony & Alba’s is they allow customers to fully customize the thickness of their pizza crust. And, for those in the mood for something different than traditional pizza crust, Tony & Alba’s also offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.
Tony & Alba’s Classic Pizzas
One of the all-time favorite pizzas of Tony & Alba’s owner, Al, is the aptly named the Tony Gourmet. The pizza is a savory medley of all of the restaurant’s greatest toppings. Layers of prosciutto, pancetta, pepperoni, olives, mushroom, tomato, provolone, garlic cover the fresh cheese and tomato base.
And, for those looking for a healthier option, look no further than the vegetarian pizza. Loaded with heaps of vegetables including mushrooms, zucchini, tomato, black olive, artichoke, garlic, bell peppers, and onions. To add an extra bit of flavor to your pizza, take a tip from the chefs and ask for basil on top.
Italian Pasta Inspired by the Motherland
Customers can choose their own pasta, spaghetti, penne, rigatoni, linguini, shells, or gnocchi to go with any sauce of their liking. But, if you are in the mood for one of the perfectly curated pasta dishes, order an authentic pasta dish that comes from Alba’s own family recipes from Italy. Our favorite is the simple Pomodoro, made with tomatoes, garlic, and herbs. The simplicity of the dish highlights the flavor profiles of each ingredient. But, if you want something spicier, try the Amatriciana which is topped with hot peppers to give the dish some kick.
