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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I would have but now the restaurant is too crowded. Our table was in the middle and too close to the next table. The fig appetizer was spectacular but the caesar salad was overdressed and the dressing not as good as it used to be.

Going to Anjelicas in the summer is always a treat. Lots of local produce and fish choices on the menu. The servers are always very good and friendly. I had the halibut and my husband the Bronzini, both were well made and delicious. The Strawberry and fennel salad is one of my favorites and if you are dining there give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

Will always go back. However, took a 5:15 pm reservation since that was the only spot left for 4.
Ordered octopus that we love there and it was nothing like we’ve had before at Angelica’s. The gnocchis came out cold and had to be sent back to heat.
We will chalk it up to the early hour.........

Mario and Miguel were excellent waiters! The food was cooked to perfection. And the gnocchi just melted in your mouth. We also had the veal pork chop Parmesan it was absolutely delicious and the rolled stuffed chicken was nothing like we’ve ever had before. Everything was delicious!

For 23 years, Anjelicas has been wowing our area with the most wonderful, delicious and perfect cuisine that you could imagine. Anjelicas has been called the Cipriani’s of the shore and we think it’s better.

Make your reservations weeks in advance and prepare to be wowed! The owners, managers, wait and kitchen staff are the BEST you will ever find, anywhere!

As always dining at Angelica’s is a treat - for the excellent food preparation and presentation, the changing ‘Specials’ offered, the competent and knowledgeable wait staff and the proximity to the Sea Bright ocean front. From the Amuse Bouche- ricotta/ corn cannoli savory and delicious, to the eggplant tower appetizer , the veal sorrentino and red snapper special , orange sponge cake- all amazing. A great birthday celebration/ thank you Angelica’s for the serenade!
