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.

Another stellar experience. It’s obvious that they strive for perfection. They’re passionate about serving consistently fresh and delicious food. We love Oscar, one of their top servers. He treats each guest as if they’re one of his best customers. We have another reservation this week. I’m bringing out of town family to my favorite restaurant on the shore.

The food is outstanding. It is difficult to decide what to have. Fritto Misto fantastic! Saturday night before mother’s day was crazy busy & overwhelming. Very crowded and unfortunately did take away from this wonderful restaurant. Very noisy & chaotic. Will definitely come back for lunch or weeknight !!!

This restaurant always seems to be buzzing but the food is worth the wait. We had the meatball appetizer with peppers. Very good but if you are not a hot pepper lover, it might be best to ask for mild. Our main dishes didn't disappoint; the halibut was excellent and the pea risotto so creamy. The ravioli was light and the artichoke stuffing was really great.

This continues to be one of our favorite restaurants.

We enjoyed everything we ordered. The Fritto-Misto was cooked perfectly. Our dinners were delicious and the Napoleon desert was the best we've had. My only regret is this place isn't closer to where we live or I would frequent it more often.

We finally got a reservation during the week here. Didn't have to wait to be seated. Seating is cramped. We were back by the kitchen which turned out to be a good thing. When we were leaving we saw tables in the alley which would be an option next time due to the noise inside. We started with the artichokes and clams oreganata - both very good. I had the mussels as my main course which I didn't care for. Fishy. I also had the eggplant appetizer which was very good. My partner had the Veal Chop Parmigiana which he said was outstanding. He can't wait to go back and get it again!

The meal was delicious from start to finish, the service was lovely and the atmosphere is fun. We had the tuna tartare and the mussels to start and the cacio e pepe and a ravioli special for our entrees. Ended the meal with cappuccinos for both of us. Can't wait to go back and try anything else off of the menu!

Heard great things about Anjelica's so I booked for my birthday two months in advance. Great food, great ambience and great wait staff. The gnocchi made you believe that you were in Italy. The only negative is that we had to wait about 20 minutes for our table and there is no place to wait (it was one of those cold April evenings). We decided to wait at the bar next door and Anjelca's staff personally came to get us when the table was ready. All in all a great experience. Would definitely recommend.

This is by far the best italian restaurant. Those in New York and italy that are the best are the only comparisons. Staff is excellent and welcoming. Try it. You’ll never want to go anywhere else.

Popular place, hard to get a reservation. Food was delivered hot to the table. Everyone's dinner was prepared well and full of flavor. Large selection of delicious home made desserts to satisfy every palate. Unfortunately, the noise level is very high so hard to enjoy conversations without asking for it to be repeated.

The staff is always so pleasant and welcoming. They greet me by name.
I tend to make several reservations in advance several weeks apart, especially during the summer season so that I am assured of getting a table on the weekend.
The outdoor seating is very appealing. The food is so delicious. The options are varied and not the usual fare. Angelicas is one of my very favorite restaurants.
