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.
The best restaurant in NJ. From the food to the service to the setting, it is simply outstanding Italian.
Simply stated, the BEST of the BEST! NONE BETTER. Go for lunch &. beat the crowds. All fresco dining, weather permitting. 😋
Always great food, excellent service and a good time. You never leave hungry and you always want to come back again. Festive and noisy but that’s due to the FUN!
Wait staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Food was so delicious!
Excellent dining experience. We celebrated my wife’s birthday and she was thrilled.
Birthday! Asked for special birthday dessert ! Was not offered or delivered!😩
Always the best, first and foremost on the shore area. Call for reservation; always busy.
Generally very good. Improvement that should be made ; waiter could not be understood when going over the evening specials. Very broken english (frustrating). Table placements are much too close. I realize that space is at a premium. With the prices charged a little more space between patrons would be appreciated.
Consistent as usual - Had special pasta (Canelloni with English Peas) as well as a personal favorite(Branzino). Could not have been fresher tasting or better. Cannot wait to have this weeks special of day
Always the best!!
Dinner was excellent. Can’t wait to go back.
CONSISTENTLY GOOD Thats my opinion on how to describe the restaurant. Specials are ALWAYS on the money. Had the special rigatoni with sausage meat as well as lamb shank with baby english peas special . Delicious. Cannot wait for this weeks specials.
Always delicious. Always on point. The halibut special over lobster risotto was unbelievable!
Have been going to Anjelica’s for 20 years and it always delivers. The food is the best around.
It is unfortunate that they now have standing reservations for customers so you can never get a reservation at choice dinning times.
Outstanding food...make sure you explore the specials. Floor is crowded and tables can be cramped. Reflects the popularity of this gem.
The food and service was excellent. Thank you for the great day
Excellent food, staff courteous, friendly, great knowledge of the menu, on top of cleaning your table and filling your glasses. Prices a little in high side but the food is worth it. Reminds me of my grandmothers cooking including the dinnerware. You won’t be disappointed
Carlos , our server was very attentive to our groups needs. He is fantastic! Also Manuel and of course Oscar! Dining at Angelica’s is always a very special experience.
upscale Italian with GREAT food and Carlos is Super
The Malfaldine with Meyer Lemon Sauce is FANTASTIC Cannot wait till next Tuesday to have it again
Perfect location for birthday celebration. Very tight seating for dinner. Delicious. Highly recommend.
The service, atmosphere & food were all amazing! Highly recommend booking a reservation here!
Superb delicious. Supper great
Came here to celebrate a friend's birthday. The basic menu looked a little 'pedestrian' - however there were quite a few specials. Instead, we opted to share a couple of appetizers instead....a farro salad (pretty good), a capellini pie (not for us!) and a small anti paste plate (can't possibly screw up cold cuts & cheese) . 1 coffee, 1 (small) slice of a delicious chocolate cream pie. Bill: $92. Don't we think this is a tad ridiculous???? It's a BYOB!!! This place is always hopping and I really hoped it would be memorable. It was, but not in a good way :( sorry
Excellent as always. Wonderful service. Food was amazing.
A very nice dining experience for a special occasion. We really enjoyed our evening. The wait staff is expertly trained and very attentive.
The food and service was outstanding. The Lobster Fra Diavollo was truly amazing and all the different home made pastas were incredible.
First time. I had a reservation for about 1 month prior. So delicious! service was great! I ordered 2 things off the specials menu. Cannot wait to go back.
Food and Service is always excellent. Eggplant Parm is a must try.
Our waiter Anthony was terrific, the ambiance is great and of course the food is excellent
Both my wife's meal and mine were really good, but they were pricey.
I had lunch with friends. Fillet of sole was excellent. Light & delicious. There were a few specials in addition to the menu. There were so many good choices.
We always look forward to dinner at Anjelicas and as always we had a fine dinner with very nice service.
I had one of the nightly specials, a tuna dish that was outstanding and my wife had her usual Berkshire Pork Chop. She has had this chop many times but said this one was really outstanding. She brought what was left of it home and really enjoyed it again the next day. My only disappointment was seeing the cost of the Tuna special I had. It was $44. I must admit it was a very nice size piece of tuna but i was a little shocked by the price. Next time I will check the price before i order a special. I'm looking forward to my next dinner at Anjelicas.
We we looking for some place special to celebrate my wife's birthday. We decided on Anjelica's and weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was comfortable and the experience was great. Will definitely be back!
Anjelica’s never disappoints. Quality ingredients done simply are the hallmarks of Italian food. The pastas are cooked to perfection and truly Al Dente, pasta should have a chew to it, and Angelica’s nails it in their preparation. With an extensive list of specials and my go to pork chop I find myself wanting everything that is presented.
Another great meal. The host right down to the wait staff do it right. Don’t forget to bring your own adult beverages!!
Food and service were excellent. Wait staff were very knowledgeable. Their specials are always amazing. The lemon pasta dish that we had for an appetizer was simple yet superb. My halibut was cooked to perfection with a delicious lobster risotto. Seating is a little tight in the restaurant, but it is worth it.
Cramped seating, too noisy, food choices and specials were not good, not tasty at all, risotto with mushrooms was overpowering. Only things good were the crab-cakes and Cesar salad. Will not return.
Food was beyond delicious and service was outstanding.
I visited because a very close friend of mine comes often. I was beyond satisfied! The host new my name when I walked in he was so very sweet. The staff was on point! It was beautiful and cozy inside. The food was top notch! The best chicken parm I have ever had! My family and I had a fantastic time and will be making this our new home. Anjelica came out to greet us as well; such a beautiful kind young lady!
