Italian
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.

    Very nice atmosphere and the service is exceptional. This is BYOB and that is a plus. The menu is limited, and prices are above average.

    We enjoyed such a lovely meal at Anjelica’s and already were lucky enough to book our next reservation in a month (given our first experience, we are seriously counting down)! The service is amazing, from the host, the server, bussers, management, and support staff, everyone is kind, accommodating, lovely, and it’s clear that they take pride in the restaurant and want your experience to be fantastic. The food is *to die for*, and I don’t say that lightly! I was so impressed by the expansive specials offered on Tuesday night when we dined, there were lots of fresh fish options and pastas! The food was beautiful, delicious, well-balanced, and the orecchiette with spicy vodka sauce is what dreams are truly made of! We enjoyed a lovely cappuccino and pistachio cake for dessert, the perfect ending to a lovely and decadent meal. I highly recommend the tuna crudo (it was a special), charcuterie, the summer pasta with sweet corn and basil (also a special), the orecchiette with spicy vodka sauce, and I recommend that you save room for dessert! Thank you for a memorable evening!

    Wonderful service and great food. Everything we ordered was quick to arrive and absolutely wonderful. The only disappointment was the lack of entrees that they were out of when ordering. But, I would go back again, even traveling 90 minutes to get there.

    First time dining here, took forever to get a reservation but we got one for 4:00. Service and food was exceptional. We had the langostinos & stuffed artichoke for appz. Main course was homemade ravioli and the halibut, delicious. Lastly, we had tiramisu and pistachio cake. We will definitely go back if we can get a reservation but everything was perfection

    Wonderful meal with Tyler our server Disappointed halibut with lobster risotto was not a special. It should be on the regular menu. It is excellent. Cacio de pepe was perfectly prepared. Only problem is it is impossible to get a reservation at this restaurant. We call and beg to be seated.
