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.
Great birthday dinner for my younger brother.
Nothing but great! Excellent food and service right off the beach.
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!
Everything was excellent, just could not find the host to be seated at the time of our arrival
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!
Lived up to our expectations! Service was on point and food was delish! Worth having to dine earlier than we usually prefer just to get a reservation!
Anjelica’s was amazing! The food was spectacular and the ambiance was fantastic! Highly recommend just make sure you make reservations!
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!
Always on point
I am a New Yorker and have been to my share of good restaurants
I have been to Anjelica’s twice this week and have had some of the best food I have ever had I will be back
Another outstanding dining experience at Anjelica’s. Josh was our Server and he was assisted by Marko. The service could not have been better. Everything we had was superb from the fresh pastas and the meatball appetizer to the Chicken Parm (not on menu) and the Halibut special. Thanks Anjelica’s. Still the best and still our favorite!
The highest quality food with the best service. No matter what your order it’s 5 star! Our favs-cacio pepe, summer farrow salad, bronzino, sole, and bolognese
Best place top food
Delicious as usual. Our favorite go to but need reservations two weeks in advance
Without question Anjelica's is one of the best restaurants not only in Se Bright, or Monmouth County,
but is the entire state. Weather permitting a table in the decorated side "ally" is like sitting at a
restaurant in Italy, enhanced by their large menu of outstanding Italian food. BRAVA, Anjelica's
Back again...and what a wonderful dinner with friends. Awesome food, service, value and a special shout out to Oscar for taking care of us. Cant wait to go back next week. Needs to be in the weekly line up.
Not at its best,
Absolutely amazing dining experience. The four of us tried four different appetizers and four different main courses. Every dish was beyond perfect.
We will definitely be back.
Loved it all!
Great experience as always, there was a slight hiccup with my meal but they more than made up for the service.
The best of the best. Spoils you for all other restaurants. Try to get in once a week. Never disappointed
We love it here! The food is amazing and the service is excellent! It is a bit noisy but that is because everyone is enjoying this special place! Highly recommend!
This is the BEST restaurant ever! Make a reservation and you will never stop going here!!!
My wife and myself totally enjoyed our dinning experience from entering your restaurant until we departed for the evening. We wish to thank our waiter, Bob, who was completely professional, congenial and knowledgeable. You can count on our patronage in the future.
Vinnie & Elaine Soviero
They are always consistent and always deliver. My most fav spot in NJ.
Could not be better, everything was perfect, restaurant beautiful, staff friendly, we met Anjelica. Price was right, food was excellent.
The food never disappoints. Excellent meal, good service, but I feel like the tables are a bit too crowded together. We were there for our anniversary. I feel like it would be nice if our server had inquired about the occasion, as when you book on open table it asks you that question.
Never got seated. Left after 45 mins. Mgr sorta laughed it off and said all my reservations late. Sadly, while its the best food in NJ, making a res is easy, getting to sit IMPOSSIBLE.
Best food we have had in a restaurant in a long time.
Sitting outside in the alley is like transporting to an intimate vacation destination for dinner.
Prices were reasonable. Appetizers (we had 4) were excellent. Pork chops on the menu were plump and juicy. Special of homemade tortellini was delicious.
We will definitely be returning.
Always a wonderful dining experience. From the setting to the service & food. Never disappoints.
always a pleasure , outstanding food, service and ambiance
Food is always consistently good! Friendly service and willing to accommodate.
Excellent food, service, atmosphere!
Always a quality authentic meal. Dining there is the next best thing to being in Italia
As always, AMAZING! Consistently the best food, service and energy. Never fails to please!
This restaurant is the best. It spoils you for any other
Food is amazing! The Octopus appetizer melted in our mouth! The dinner special gnocchi same just divine! Service is equally as amazing very attentive! I loved the different styles of plates they incorporate into their homemade dishes makes me feel like I am at my nonna's house, a truly comforting feeling!
This was our first time at Anjelica’s. We were surprised to see how busy it was even at 6 PM on a Thursday evening. We were greeted immediately and continued to be watched over throughout the evening with plentiful staff. Staff were attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding. The veal Parmesan on a bone was enough to take home and have as leftovers. At first I thought it was overpriced, but given the quantity, I would say it was a good value. We didn’t know that it was a BYOB, but two blocks away was a liquor store where we could pick up some wine. Certainly will go back and have dinner again, but I certainly would think twice if I were bringing my entire family and had to feed 5 to 10 other people. Maybe for a very special occasion.
My fav NJ place. As good as it gets. Great service staff and special food. Down at beach for the summer, we’ll be back weekly!!
