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.

Popular place, hard to get a reservation. Food was delivered hot to the table. Everyone's dinner was prepared well and full of flavor. Large selection of delicious home made desserts to satisfy every palate. Unfortunately, the noise level is very high so hard to enjoy conversations without asking for it to be repeated.

Veal parmigiana was delicious and my wife’s veal saltimbocca was as good as any of the great Italian restaurants from Northern New Jersey and NYC. Small restaurant and was very busy for a Thursday night.

The staff is always so pleasant and welcoming. They greet me by name.
I tend to make several reservations in advance several weeks apart, especially during the summer season so that I am assured of getting a table on the weekend.
The outdoor seating is very appealing. The food is so delicious. The options are varied and not the usual fare. Angelicas is one of my very favorite restaurants.

I’m never displeased with the experience! My only knock is I can’t get a reservation except 5 pm or 9 pm! No matter how far ahead I call! But I still will take the 5 pm rather than eat somewhere else 👍😎😎

The food is always great and the service is that of a five star restaurant. Our server last night was Jake and he knows the food and kitchen as if it where his own. What a great restaurant.

It was Easter Sunday. We had a 7:45P reservation but we were called @7P to come early. Food was awesome though at this late time some items had run out which would be expected on a holiday late reservation. Waiter was through and attentive Could not have asked for a better experience on Easter. Host also took the time to take multiple pictures of our family. Love the personal touch , great service and awesome food. Will return to Anjelica’s again and again.

Angelica’s is always in top form! Delicious, beautifully presented , fresh and cooked perfectly! we have never had less than a top drawer dining experience. Shared a buratta salad with procuitto,had 2 ‘specials’- rack of lamb and Parmesan veal chop and ricotta cheese cake- all wonderful. We celebrated my husband’s birthday with wonderful and attentive service. In a restaurant laden Monmouth county you can be sure that Angelica’s is a place you’ll return to again and again!

Loved this place. The food was excellent. Never get down to Sea Bright that often but I will again for this place . I had the specials of the night. Blood orange salad that was so refreshing and the Halibut with Lobster risotto. Both meals were beyond tasty. We had an 8:15 reservation on a Friday night. It was crowded but we were seated right away. The waiter was very informative about the menu. It is a lively place, a little loud . A place i will return shortly.

Authentic Italian staff and food made with the best of the best ingredients and preparation. We vacationed in Venice, Florence, and Rome eating at some of the very best restaurants. It doesn't get any better than the dishes served at Anjelica's! The fact that it's a BYOB only makes it more economical–Bon Appétit!

We came back to Anjelica's for my mother in law's birthday. She is impossible. Every place we take her to is " not great" or "Too expensive" or both. Anjelica's, however, silences her every time. The fish is outstanding, sweet, fresh and delicious. My son loves their rib eye and of course the house specialty of angry lobster over pasta is a must try. The service is also as good as it gets. While certainly not cheap, this is the quality of food you hope to get when paying for fine dining. The BYOB also helps keep it very reasonable for those watching their budget. Anjelica's would have been a regular spot for me even when I lived in Manhattan and had my choice of everything. It is really good.
