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.

We have been to Anjelica's many times and it is always an excellent experience. The Cacio e Pepe pasta is one of our favorites and it didn't disappoint. The Veal Saltimbocca is also a family favorite as well and was outstanding. We will be making our next reservation soon.

A very popular restaurant but not worth the wait of months to get a reservation. Very pricey for the amount of food served. Food was good but not over the top as expected. Staff was always present and we felt rushed at times by all of the staff servicing us. I don't think I will be returning for a second time. Parking is also an issue, especially in the summer months.

This place is amazing!! The food is spectacular and the ambiance is terrific. Everyone makes you feel so at home and part of a family. My husband and I are from Clifton and we try to get down to Anjelica's as much as we can.

Angelica’s is the best Italian restaurant in New Jersey by far.
It ranks with the very best Italian restaurants in the entire New York-New Jersey greater Metropolitan area.
We are experienced and informed restaurant goers and this is absolutely our favorite!
Reasons; extensive menu choices are varied frequently, daily specials are just that, numerous and alway interesting.
Food preparation is always perfection, ie. Pasta is always al dente, frying is light and greaseless, spice is as specified by the dining patron, seafood is the freshest and meat is of the highest quality, salads are exceptional.
Lastly, the restaurant, no matter how busy, will whenever possible graciously prepare off-menu requests.
Simply “as good as it gets!”

A fabulous and friendly restaurant that has never disappointed us. All the seafood and vegetables are always fresh and cooked to perfection. Steaks and chops are of prime quality and the variety of choices offers something for every taste. This is our favorite restaurant by far. I only wish it wasn’t so difficult to get a table. Make sure you book well in advance. You won’t be disappointed!

We were celebrating our 52nd wedding anniversary. The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. We enjoyed the food immensely. I loved my meal of lambchops over mashed potatoes. They were cooked to perfection, medium. The dessert, orange pound cake, is something that I am now craving. The service was excellent and prompt. The waiter made great recommendations and checked on us frequently. The prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restarant. I also plan to return to this restaurant.

We celebrated my birthday at my favorite restaurant and it was divine. Our Server Julio was great. Loved his accent and friendly demeanor. Everyone enjoyed their meal but the highlights were the special fig appetizer (perfectly ripe figs wrapped in prosciutto with balsamic glaze on a cloud of whipped ricotta), baby artichokes oreganato, the Best Caesar salad anywhere. And that’s just for appetizers. The veal chop Parmesan was crispy and tender at the same time and the spaghetti with pomodoro sauce was superb. We finished the meal with an excellent orange and olive oil cake with fresh whipped cream and a perfect cappuccino. YUM!

Absolutely my favorite restaurant. Amazingly, it always lives up to my high expectations. We sit in the alleyway if we can because it is quieter and the atmosphere is so nice. And the food tonight, like always, was spectacular. The three of us shared two portions of the Eggplant Napoleon appetizer – One of my favorite foods anywhere – and we then shared two spectacular entrées, the leg of lamb and the veal chop.
