Joe & Jocelyn have a strong connection to their Italian heritage, drawn mostly to the regions of Puglia and Campania, specifically Taranto, Naples and the Amalfi coast where both of their families are from. Following one of their many inspirational trips throughout northern and southern Italy, an unexpected career change led them to purchase & restore a 1955 Chevy step van. "Nettuno" is Italian for Neptune, Roman god of fresh water and the sea. While on the Amalfi coast, they met a fisherman whose boat was named "Nettuno" and they took that as a sign! The rest is history.

The first point pleasant settlement.
"The fishing, clamming, and hunting village of Lovelandtown was the first community in the Point Pleasant area. Beginning in the early part of the last century, settlers made a living from the bay environment. Later, they also manned the coastal life-saving stations and catered to the well-off summer residents of Bay Head, organizing fishing and gunning trips.
Lovelandtown can generally be defined as east of the canal and south of Bridge Avenue. The area is entirely within the borough of Point Pleasant. The first home was built 1817 by Charles Stout and stood at the current Bay Avenue, just south of Bridge Avenue until just a few years ago. As early as the 1830s there were about 30 houses. The oldest remaining house was built in 1850. While there were other early settlers scattered about in farms and homesteads in Point Pleasant, Lovelandtown was the first real cluster of buildings.
The first Lovelands probably came to Point Pleasant in the 1810s, living in the vicinity of what is now Arnold Avenue and Rt. 88. Charles Loveland, the first settler from the family for which the community is named, was a substantial Lovelandtown landholder by the 1830's." (Except from PointPleasantHistory.com >> READ MORE )
