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.

    Great food and great service. Started with the frito misto and the stuffed artichoke appetizer. Both were excellent lots of flavor and cooked perfectly. Next we split a Caesar which was also very good with a nice portion. For dinner my wife had the Summer Truffle pasta which she said was fantastic. I took a taste and would agree. I had the veal saltimbocca was also very good. It was very flavorful with the perfect portion size. For dessert we split a tiramisu it was light fluffy and perfect balance of cream and coffee flavor. Can’t wait to go back.

    Had the most amazing time at Anjelica’s with my boyfriend! Our reservation was for 4pm and it was beautiful outside where we sat. It is a BYOB so if you would like a glass of wine definitely bring a bottle (or there’s a liquor store a couple doors down). We started with the Polpette Emilia and special baked oysters, which were delicious. For our entrees we got the Capellini Al Porri and the Fusilli Al Fabian which were perfect. Not only is the food delicious, but the waiters are extremely nice and very attentive. The ambiance is one of a kind and transport you to a little street in Italy. Would absolutely recommend to anyone, absolutely loved Anjelica’s!

    We’ve been coming for ~20 years since I was a kid and we still continue to come back year after year. It’s a guaranteed amazing meal, great service, and cozy ambiance. I wish there was seniority with reservations because it’s near impossible to get one today, but it upholds to the standard it set for itself years back. One request…. Bring back the Manila clams in the red broth for the every day menu item…… omg 😍

    Went at 4pm on a Saturday because that’s the only time I could get a reservation. Originally had a table for 4 but other couple couldn’t make it. The tables for 2 were cramped and either by the front door, up against a wall near the bathroom or by the kitchen door. To start my husband had the soup special of roasted fennel and potato; it was light and delicious. I had the baked oyster special which was tasty but oysters were tiny and not worth $22 for 6. We then shared a very disappointing chopped salad. It tasted good but was chopped so fine it was the consistency of a relish; definitely not worth $22! We split the limencello pasta with toasted breadcrumbs. It was bright and creamy and perfectly al dente but pricey at $34. Dinner was the halibut special; delicious and chicken saltimboca; good but not amazing. For dessert we had tiramisu; pretty good but not nearly as good as my grandmas, and pistachio olive oil cake; delicious! Cappuccino could’ve been hotter. I’ll try again but in the warmer months so I could sit outside. Next time I’ll have to try the pork chop with broccoli rabe because it looked amazing!

    Food is always amazing, wait staff amazing as well, although, we did feel rushed once we were finished with our meal & dessert and this wasn't the first time we felt this way. We wanted to finish our bottle of wine but couldn't because the manager stands in front of you waiting for you to get up which makes you feel uncomfortable. We were 2 steps from our table & the wait staff were right there clearing the table.
