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.

Food and service were both excellent as always. One comment would be for the server to speak a little louder and slower so we could have heard the specials a little clearer because of the background noise.

Place was awesome I had never been and always try to find new great restaurants. It compared to one of my favorites Augustinos in Hoboken. Food was excellent will definitely be back. Carlos was great with his service and recommendations. Awesome place.

We try to eat here once a week if possible. Food is consistently great. Huge variety between menu items & specials. All staff is fantastic as well, especially Julie. Just had the Swiss chard rosettes as well as lobster fra diavolo. My wife had the baked clams, broccoli rabe, and sole. Bluebuerry tart is always a winner for dessert. Cannot wait till they re open after vacation.

The lobster gnocchi and the salmon with lentils was absolutely incredible!! This has become my new favorite restaurant in the area. If they have the crab cakes - they were out of this world great with very little filler... Can also highly recommend the Rosetto or Rosetta!! Service and ambience is TOP NOTCH!!

Everything was out of this world, as it usually is. Staff was curtious and on point, appetizers and entrees were incredible, a lot less noisy than it can get in the small room due to the fact that it was the first seating(5pm) and a Thursday. The only thing I can say on a bad note was that they are looking to turn the tables over as fast as possible to get as many seatings in as they can, so you basically have two hours to get from soup to nuts. If you want to sit and relax after dinner and enjoy your dinner guests you should plan on going somewhere else after dinner. They don't ask you to leave but people are waiting by the door to be seated, and they only have two hours also, so you kinda feel obligated to give up the table. Overall though, Anjelica's NEVER fails to please. I am very picky about Italian food, and even things that I wouldn't think to try are delicious when I am persuaded to try them. Five Stars +

We were greeted and immediately sat at a lovely table although 10 mins early

No need to look at the menu although expansive as the specials were not to be missed

Homemade pasta abounds and the flavor combos intuitive and well balanced

Too saucy too salty too dry?? Not on these plates

Will go again and again

We went to this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon with 8 people. The restaurant was very accommodating. the waiter was very nice, someone in our group gave him a compliment was he was serving us. The food was amazing. I had the Eggplant Parm for an appetizer and my main course was Veal Parm on the bone. So tasty. Everyone had a good time and enjoyed their food.
