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.

Everything was excellent! This was our first time here, and Bobby was our server. We couldn’t of had a better server for our first time there, he was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and food there. There was a long list of specials he explained and every single one sounded interesting and delicious. He made great recommendations and we had not one complaint. Clams oreganata were amazing! We had another appetizer from the specials, I got the short ribs on special and my date got the lamb chops on special. Let me tell you, I’m extremely picky with lamb chops and don’t usually order them out to eat because I need them to be cooked perfectly and good quality, but these were the best lamb chops I’ve ever tasted. Had the tiramisu for dessert...hands down best tiramisu I’ve ever had. We will definitely be going back often!! Delicious!

the food here is amazing. the only issue we had was that we think the kitchen messed up our order, or the waitress forgot to ring in our entrees. we had an 8:45 pm reservation and ordered 2 appetizers which came out right away. at 10 pm we started to wonder where our entrees were... and they finally came out at 10:15 pm. an hour and a half waiting time to get your food? it seemed a little strange and it was never acknowledged by our server that there was an issue so we kind of just sat there looking around.

The host, attentive servers, and food are top notch: a lovely dining experience. Definitely worth it for a special occasion. It's a bit pricey for the wallet for more frequent visits...wish we could dine here more often. But, when we do, it's always a good experience and enjoyable evening.

Good food and service but the tables are too close together and the noise levels are very high. If it was a sports bar it would be alright but high end dinner it doesn't work. They need to expand restaurant seating area for ambiance.

This place is definitely top notch and I wanted to give a 5 star for food because my wife loved her meal and the appetizers were great...but my meal didn't measure up. I had their short rib special and it was a big portion of really good quality meat but it was way too bland for me. I even needed to ask for salt! It was braised in it's own juices but there was nothing added to make it a little tastier. I would have thought that using a wine sauce would have been perfect. My wife had the halibut special and loved it. The risotto in both meals was also extremely good! Bob our server, was excellent and there is really a large wait staff to make sure you have everything you need. The ambience is great and even though the restaurant was packed the noise level was fine. Will definitely go back!

Anjelica's is my favorite Italian restaurant and has the best food, period. I can only compare their meals to those I have had at restaurants in Tuscany, Verona, Rome, . . . The service is superb, the waitstaff friendly, informed, and organized, and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. The outside seating is reminiscent of so may places in Italy. What more can I say?

Service and food have been exceptional over the years. It's a good idea to get a reservation because they are always busy! Can seem a little pricey, but worth it! Take note of the distinctive china used throughout the dinner- nice detail! Fabulous in every way and still a BYOB!
