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.
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!
Only draw back is if you are unfortunate a
Nd have a table by the door people are hovering over you and actually on top of you as there is no waiting area and people are rude
there was no hint of anchovey in the caesar salad, was this a low level bottled dressing?. The red snapper was burnt on top. We asked for lemon in our water but was not added.
the bread basket used to be interesting and varied. The bread offered was lovely but the former offering was much more delightful and gave a speciality to the meal. What happened?
The wait service was the best of the experience. They are wonderful but how will they thrive with the downgraded offering? Wishing the new owners the best but don't think dimming down the food will carry you through to the popularity that existed formerly. Go back and study what we were so happy with before.
Same as always Fabulous Fantastic best Resturant by far ... love it
Anjelicas has to be the best restaurant in Monmouth County The food is so fresh and delicious. We were there on a Sunday afternoon. A party just breaking up so it was a little crowded but the staff got all the tables up and ready for the next patrons quickly.
I had the fennel apple salad and the halibut special. The fish was so delicious and done so perfectly. My husband had a special pasta that was done with a lemon sauce. Just perfect. The service is very attentive but not too overbearing. The food arrived promptly and the room was full.
We ended it with an chocolate cream pie and and an orange pound cake. Such a fabulous dining experience.
Always outstanding! You all had the specials which were fantastic.
Everything was outstanding from soup to nuts! Baked Cappelini is incredible!
this is our 3 rd time there, the food is so good, there home made pasta are delicious, everything is made fresh, and there deserts are also great, would highly recommend it,
Food and service are second to none always!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals from start to finish. She had their special eggplant appetizer (her favorite standard) and veal saltimbocca as entree. She loved it. I had special pasta ( Mafaldine with lemon sauce). I personally love this one and have ordered it since they have had it on specials. Then the Halibut entree was cooked to perfection. Light & moist & flavorful.. Lastly the orange cake is a perfect finish to all. Cannot wait till next week. Hopefully, they will still have the special lemon pasta.
Can’t say enough good things everything was do fresh tasting and delicious can’t wait to go back!!
The service and food at Angelica's are always on point. A mos... for any lover of amazing Italian food!
We had the meatball appetizer which was delicious. Both of us had pasta dishes which were outstanding. Even though the restaurant was full on a Thursday night the service was very good. Will definitely return.
Food was delicious and service was excellent. Felt light pressure to turn table over not by our server but other employees
