Since 1996, Anjelica’s Restaurant has been one of New Jersey’s premier Italian restaurant destinations. Family owned and operated, Anjelica’s maintains a credo of excellence in its quality of food, warm service and gracious hospitality.

In a setting of casual elegance, Anjelica’s takes inspiration from the rich culture of Italian cuisine as well as local, seasonal ingredients that abound the Jersey Shore. Sourcing from local purveroys, Anjelica's takes pride in using fresh farm eggs for their homemade pastas and using organic produce as often as the market allows. The heart of Anjelica's is a blend of comfort and freshness.

Anjelica’s was devastated by hurricane Sandy on October 29, 2012. It was rebuilt from the ground up and 350 days later reopened its doors to critical praise. Anjelica’s continues to capture a unique warmth and comfort and maintains its reputation as one of New Jersey’s finest and most beloved restaurants.

Terrible. Used to be one of our favorite restaurants. Now service is awful and they can’t fulfill their already limited menu.

Awesome spot. One critic that they have no control over — I dont recommend you eat outside — motorcycles and trucks on the road were really noisy (esp the motorcycles — some serious bikers in that neighborhood). Food and service were amazing! Just eat inside :)

This is the second time we’ve been in 3 weeks and both times for celebration of a birthday and anniversary. Neither time was recognized even though it was noted . Servers said they weren’t told.. other places servers ask if you are first time . Celebrating a special occasion or just for a night out. Wasnt really nice to blame the restaurant, although SOMEONE should be either asking or reading the ressy notations
We do love the food and will return for a meal.

Lunch portions were very small. $24.00 for 4 ounces of fish. 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes or rice. No salad. One very small slice of chocolate pudding pie was $12.00. $3.75 for a cup of so-so coffee. In summary, we paid $96.00 that included tip and walked away hungry and disappointed.

A good friend introduced me to Anjelica's, and I'm thrilled she did! I eat veggies + fish and cannot get enough of the cauliflower, artichokes and salmon. All are delicious. The wait staff and managers are so friendly and attentive. Book your next reservation before you pay your bill :)

My husband and I went for a Friday lunch date !
It was wonderful, they have a very nice lunch menu. To start he had a beet & blood orange salad & I had a fennel salad both of which were large portions and delicious. For our entree we both choose the veal, it was fabulous. I would totally recommend a luncheon here.

Had a 1:45 pm lunch. Husband had baked sea bass which he said was very good. I am not a seafood person so ordered strip steak which they didn't have. Ordered a crispy chicken dish which was dry and not worth the money. Service was very good, but I would not go back. Overrated.

We are so fortunate to have this place just a few minutes drive away from home. Atmosphere is chill and cool but the staff is also really friendly. They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Due to Covid, we weren't allowed to stay too long. Overall great place.

Great Restaurant, have been going there for years.
I had the special, halibut encrusted over lobster risotta. Don't forget the chopped salad...
What can I say about the homemade lemonciello- to die for better than Italy.
