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.

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.

Angelica’s is the best Italian restaurant in New Jersey by far.
It ranks with the very best Italian restaurants in the entire New York-New Jersey greater Metropolitan area.
We are experienced and informed restaurant goers and this is absolutely our favorite!
Reasons; extensive menu choices are varied frequently, daily specials are just that, numerous and alway interesting.
Food preparation is always perfection, ie. Pasta is always al dente, frying is light and greaseless, spice is as specified by the dining patron, seafood is the freshest and meat is of the highest quality, salads are exceptional.
Lastly, the restaurant, no matter how busy, will whenever possible graciously prepare off-menu requests.
Simply “as good as it gets!”

A fabulous and friendly restaurant that has never disappointed us. All the seafood and vegetables are always fresh and cooked to perfection. Steaks and chops are of prime quality and the variety of choices offers something for every taste. This is our favorite restaurant by far. I only wish it wasn’t so difficult to get a table. Make sure you book well in advance. You won’t be disappointed!

We were celebrating our 52nd wedding anniversary. The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. We enjoyed the food immensely. I loved my meal of lambchops over mashed potatoes. They were cooked to perfection, medium. The dessert, orange pound cake, is something that I am now craving. The service was excellent and prompt. The waiter made great recommendations and checked on us frequently. The prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restarant. I also plan to return to this restaurant.
