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.

If you want to enjoy the BEST meal you've ever had, then make a reservation well in advance at Anjelica's. No where on the Jersey Shore area will you find consistently amazing cuisine, well trained and knowledgeable wait staff, and happy diners.

Our absolute favorite restaurant on the Jersey Shore! Every time we visit from MA we try to book a reservation at Anjelica's. We're amazed how consistently great the food, service and atmosphere are all year round.

I have to say that this is one of the finest Italian Restaurants around. I frequent many Italian restaurants and this is way on top of my list. We had lunch, but I can definitely say it is equal to their dinners.
THE BEST!!!!

The restaurant is packed for a reason. Food is outstanding. From the moment we sat down the service was impeccable. Everything we ate from the stuffed figs to the salmon and veal Milanese was just outstanding. I even received complimentary limoncello shots as the manager walked around the restaurant. It’s hard getting a reservation here so if you do consider yourself lucky! It was my husbands 50th birthday and I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else!

always a great place to have a celebration dinner. My wife and I consider Angelica's one of our special places. Aside from great food the staff treats you like they really want you to be in their restaurant. A special place.

Excellent food but felt the pasta, at $32, was overpriced (no salad etc.). The quality of service and food was tremendous.

This wasn’t our first time nor will it be our last time at Anjelica’s. Our waiter Anthony was excellent. He knew the menu extensively and was there for whatever we needed. The food speaks for itself. Taste and quality is top notch. A must try is the Berkshire double cut pork chop.

Thanks Anthony and Anjelica’s for another me my night out.

Outstanding! It is always a great night, but Angelica's hit it out of the park in Thursday. Langostinas, Bay Scallop, and if course the Baked Cappelini were incredible!

The food was absolutely amazing. From the delicious appetizers to the dessert everything was awesome. The homemade pasta is to die for. The cauliflower appetizer was amazing and the mussels were one of the best I’ve ever had. Also our waiter was wonderful, very knowledgeable about not only the food but even the history of the place. Will definitely be back here again.

Food and service are always excellent. It's a small place and the tables are very close so it tends to get loud. A crowd can form by the door and if you're sitting in that area you may have people standing on top of you.

We have been to Anjelica's many times and it is always an excellent experience. The Cacio e Pepe pasta is one of our favorites and it didn't disappoint. The Veal Saltimbocca is also a family favorite as well and was outstanding. We will be making our next reservation soon.

A very popular restaurant but not worth the wait of months to get a reservation. Very pricey for the amount of food served. Food was good but not over the top as expected. Staff was always present and we felt rushed at times by all of the staff servicing us. I don't think I will be returning for a second time. Parking is also an issue, especially in the summer months.
