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.
Awesome place...our 1st there only because so hard to get a reservation, it was actually Anjelica’s bday that night cheers 🥂!
Food is amazing
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!”
Restaurant is phenomenal! Oscar is super accommodating and the staff is super professional! The food is out of this world and it is always s pleasure dining there
Best meal in years! My favorite place. Veal chop, halibut, and lemon tart! All amazing
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!
Julio the server was incredible. It was his first time, her second. He loved it from the service to the food to the location. Would come back every day if we could! Thank you!!
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.
Soooo delicious.... so many traditional Italian dishes that bring back great memories for me at my grandma's and lucky to have an outside table on a warm September night. BYOB but no worries purchased a great Sav Blanc next door
AMAZING food and great service! Our 4th time there in a year and they never disappoint!
And it's BYOB!
Great food and great service. Would give 5 stars but the service, while very attentive, was also very slow.
It was our anniversary and we wanted something special. The restaurant was Nicely decorated and the food was delicious! I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion
My favorite restaurant... everything is perfect
it was my first visit to Anjelica's Restaurant and it was outstanding in every way....very delicious food (an eggplant "napoleon" as that night's special appetizer and orange olive oil cake were standouts...) and very personable, professional wait staff...am returning in 2 weeks to take friends for a birthday dinner... wonderful dining experience
It was my husband‘s birthday and the only place he would want to go is Angelicas. The food is absolutely spectacular beautifully cooked and served and plated the service was excellent the atmosphere is terrific we had the best time and cannot wait to go back!!
We will be back with friends and family. Warm mushroom salad was outstanding.
Always excellent! Food is always consistently good!!
We celebrated my birthday at my favorite restaurant and it was divine. Our Server Julio was great. Loved his accent and friendly demeanor. Everyone enjoyed their meal but the highlights were the special fig appetizer (perfectly ripe figs wrapped in prosciutto with balsamic glaze on a cloud of whipped ricotta), baby artichokes oreganato, the Best Caesar salad anywhere. And that’s just for appetizers. The veal chop Parmesan was crispy and tender at the same time and the spaghetti with pomodoro sauce was superb. We finished the meal with an excellent orange and olive oil cake with fresh whipped cream and a perfect cappuccino. YUM!
The app specials were delicious as well as the main course dishes
Food was outstanding and service from Tom & Bruno was the best!
wait staff very attentive
food was good I had higher expectations
Absolutely my favorite restaurant. Amazingly, it always lives up to my high expectations. We sit in the alleyway if we can because it is quieter and the atmosphere is so nice. And the food tonight, like always, was spectacular. The three of us shared two portions of the Eggplant Napoleon appetizer – One of my favorite foods anywhere – and we then shared two spectacular entrées, the leg of lamb and the veal chop.
Always a delicious meal! Loved the special appetizer roasted cauliflower.
Anjelica's is always such a treat; the restaurant is warm and inviting and the food is absolutely delicious! I've been there several times and have never been disappointed!
One of my favorite place ...
Amazing food fresh and delicious.
This is our go to family celebration restaurant. Everything about it is wonderful except hard to get a table. Book well ahead and expect to wait.
Favorite restaurant at the jersey shore. Always delicious
The Restuarant was beautiful and the service was excellent. We sat outside which was nice. But it ends there. I have eaten all over the country and the menu and specials were for amateurs. The warm mushroom salad was cold when it came out. The octopus was ok at best. Who whatever bread Halibut? Such a beautiful fish to be ruined by bread crumbs. I felt bad my fiancé ordered it. I got the spaghetti in pesto. Once again not very good. The chef is an armature and his menu was weak. End of story. We sat down at 8:45 on time for our reservation and I paid the bill at 11pm. It took an hour to get our entrees after our appetizers. The waiter apologized for the wait and gave us free desert. A cannoli that was absolutely pathetic. $180 dollars later with 20% tip and my fiancé and I knew we would never waste our time or money in this place again. And BTW, the two hosts walking around on their cell phones is really obnoxious while their looking for open tables for their wannabe regulars. This is a place for people who really don’t understand what a true culinary experience should be. And 180 bucks at a BYOB should be outstanding...what a waste of money.
This place is amazing from top to bottom. Everything about this place is worth going back and back and back! The food is delicious! The staff goes above and beyond to make your night special. We go here for special occasions and every time we go, its better than the last!
Angelica’s is my favorite restaurant in Monmouth County. The food is always consistently good. The service and staff are always efficient and friendly. I just tried recently the endive and strawberry salad and it was excellent. I’ve tried their salmon & halibut dishes which are very good & prepared to perfection. Reservations are a must.
Wonderful as always! Get a reservation way in advance!
Anjelica's food quality is undeniable but the pricing is outrageous. Two apps, four pasta entrees, two desserts and four coffees should not exceed $200 without gratuity.
Best food and atmosphere on the coast in New Jersey!
Everything was amazing!
One of my favorite places! Never disappoints!!! Excellent Italian food and service across the street from the beach.
Delicious food with a staff that knows their stuff
We have been here many times and it never disappoints.
Each time is better than the last, should be a must on everyone’s restaurant bucket list!!
