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.

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!

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!

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

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.

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.
