We were lucky to snag an outside table right out front of this very popular restaurant for lunch on a sunny warm afternoon in November. The service is top notch, Carlos our waiter was very friendly & attentive. The food is deftly prepared and a...feast not only for your palette but by sight & smell. We started with the vongole (clams) & melanzana (fried eggplant) my boyfriend & I shared our appy’s & enjoyed them both although the eggplant was slightly over fried & the sauce a little acidic but still very good. When our entrees arrived the table next to us all wanted to know what we ordered as the aroma was wafting over to their table. I had the snapper special with a light tomato broth & saffon risotto, a 10. My boyfriend got the linguine sorentina, which was delicious as well. It’s taken us over 4 months to actually get a table here as during the beginning of restaurants opening due to the pandemic they had a limited number of tables available & weren’t even accepting reservations. Which seeing how incredibly busy this afternoon lunch was I can understand why. This is located in a busy area of Sea Bright but there is ample parking in the lot across the street, plus it’s a BYOB. I think the price point on some items was a little high (Cacio e Pepe $22 on lunch menu $32 on dinner menu) but still highly recommended and tell Oscar I sent you!More

Anjelica's, Anjelica's! We have been hearing about Anjelica's for a long time and finally went for my pre-birthday dinner. The weather was perfect that evening- a precursor to our dining experience. We scored an alfresco table and received wonderful service throughout the night. I noticed...a few Yelpers complained about the tables being too close during Covid but we did not get that vibe. Appetizers: Langoustines-delicious-wanted a dozen to go Eggplant parmigiana- presentation was different. It was plated as a long, breaded piece. Very good. Rigatoni Bolognese- one of the best Bolognese out there. Pasta was homemade. Entrees: Halibut over lobster risotto- perfectly cooked fish and amazing lobster risotto. Nicely executed dish. Dessert: Blueberry tart- good but didn't have the wow factor that was present in the savory dishes. We now understand the hype bestowed upon Anjelica's and look forward to our next visit.More

So we have always purchased gift certificates to Angelica’s for friends and family but have never eaten here...that is until last Friday. Truly the food is outstanding! Anthony and Carlos were an amazing team helping us make decisions about what to order. After hearing that...we wanted a pasta “fix” for an appetizer, Anthony suggested the ravioli entree special as a starter. My husband’s rack of lamb was “amazingly tender” - his description. I was torn between the Black Sea bass and halibut. I went with the halibut and wow-outstanding. This is a an amazing gem of a restaurant. (I would suggest reservations!)More

We were there on a Friday night and found the restaurant to be attractive and buzzing. Our waitress was charming and attentive.The food was okay with the sliced steak somewhat less then tender. The mixed seafood was good. The chopped salad was very good but...the stuffed mushrooms were somewhat bland. Our dessert was okay.More

How to describe the ultimately genuine and authentic Italian experience from ambiance to the freshly farmed, seasonal local produce complimenting each dish. The family owned business is clearly portrayed as you watch each employee team up together to bring forth a special experience for each...customer. The music, the interior, the art, the decal on the plates...all sensations deriving from a home cooked meal with a simplistic yet luxurious feel. Always a night to remember from taste, to service, to ambiance, to feeling the perfect balance of being out, but maintaining the flavors of your favorite nonna's home cooked meals. Highly recommended for any and all occasions.More

WOW! If you are seeking a first class dining experience look no further than Angelica’s. We enjoyed a birthday celebration at Angelica’s and it couldn’t have been a better evening. Service by Oscar was thoroughly professional-attentive and friendly and not intrusive. There is outside dining...in front and down a side alley which must be enjoyable in the spring, summer and early fall-we however ate inside. The only downside of Angelica’s is the seating is somewhat cramped and loud in the dining room but the service and the food overcome this shortcoming. The pasta, all of the pasta is homemade and is absolutely to die for and can stand alone as a reason to visit. It is truly special with a sauce that is light and not overpowering. Apps to check out include the fresh jersey tomatoes with mozzarella and a roasted cauliflower in a pool of a light cream sauce-Yumm! Main courses were outstanding as well. Grilled Halibut was crispy on the outside yet warm and moist on the inside on a bed of sautéed spinach and pasta. Veal Parm on the bone was special-Huge and almost didn’t fit on the plate. Terramisu was heavenly and served on cold plates and was also to die for. Angelica’s is BYOB with parking on the street and across from a municipal parking lot. Spring Lake has a hip upbeat street vibe which was nice for a walk after dinner. Reservations are a must-at least a month in advance for the weekend so plan ahead. Angelica’s is not cheap by any means but don’t let that dissuade you! Special experiences are special for a reason. Angelica’s is absolutely worth every penny.More

The dinner made my 52nd wedding anniversary a memorable occasion. I enjoyed my dinner immensely. The food was excellent. They have a number of great choices on the menu. The wait staff was very efficient and the service was timely. The waiter made a number...of good recommendations and was very accommodating to my husband who is allergic to garlic. The portions were large. I am still looking for a way to re-create the orange pound cake that I ordered for dessert. My husband had the flan for dessert and he commented that it was very good. It is a BYOB restaurant. It is a restaurant that I would definitely recommend to others.More

One of my favorite restaurants at the shore. Service is always amazing as well as the food. Small dining room but well spaced tables. Everything is fresh Italian. Never had a bad experience. It’s a BYOB so you get to drink your favorite wine with...the awesome dishes. A must experience place for sureMore

The line outside is a clear indication that there's a gastronomic happening going on in the kitchen! The lively restaurant consistently offers food that is innovative yet classic and all-around superbly delicious! The dining room can be loud in the summer, but the food more...than makes up for that. And in this beach town's offseason, it is a beyond wonderful haven for gourmet dining.More
