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.
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.
Simply one of the best Southern Italians restaurants in the Monmouth/Ocean county area!
Very pleased that my table request was honored.
Food is always superior and high quality.
Love the seasonal specials.
Our waiter Julio provided excellent service!!!!
Thank you for making my birthday celebration fantastic!!!
Went for a Birthday and was a great night. This was my 5th time there and get better and better every time.
Anjelica's never disappoints. Always great food, lots of seasonal specials, and terrific service.
Service and food were excellent . Many specials were added to menu. It was very good choices
Family dinner celebration
This is one of our favorite BYO restaurants. Food always fresh and delicious.
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.
One of Monmouth County’s best restaurants. Always consistently excellent
Always great. Try to get a table outside. Never disappoints
Best food great owner always delicious love the byob
The food never disappoints! Best Italian in all of Monmouth Co. hands down.
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.
This place is amazing!! The food is spectacular and the ambiance is terrific. Everyone makes you feel so at home and part of a family. My husband and I are from Clifton and we try to get down to Anjelica's as much as we can.
The Bolognese dish was fantastic. Halibut was great. Rizzoto stuffed chicken was awesome as well. Tomatoes and mozzarella appetizer. The tomatoes were super fresh. Scallop appetizer was on point!
What an absolutely great restaurant! Always love coming back....time after time!
utterly delicious food and friendly, attentive, professional service
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.
