Every year, Open Table reveals its picks for the top 100 restaurants in the U.S. and a Jersey Shore favorite made the cut!

The best of the best was determined by the overall diner rating and the number of reviews on OpenTable.com.

Congratulations to Anjelica’s Italian Restaurant in Sea Bright for making the cut.

Anjelica's has been a Jersey Shore staple since 1996, but on October 29, 2012, everything changed. Hurricane Sandy ravaged the restaurant The owners were forced to build the eatery all over again. It took them nearly a year, but the reopening was a success, and they haven't looked back.

Anjelica's in 99% recommended on Open Table with a 4.9-star rating. Their reviews are shining. 

5th time here and Angelica's NEVER disappoints! The food is to die for. Service by our waitperson is always first rate and additionally, other staff comes around to make sure we have all we need and inquires as to our needs.
And it's BYOB.


As usual, Angelica's lived up to my expectations. The lunch was delicious, the service by Anthony was PERFECT and the attention to detail was as expected. Angelica's is my go-to place for someplace to impress.


If you want to enjoy the BEST meal you've ever had, then make a reservation well in advance at Anjelica's. Nowhere on the Jersey Shore area will you find consistently amazing cuisine, well-trained and knowledgeable wait staff, and happy diners.


It's rare that you go to a restaurant and get quality food at a reasonable price. Anjelica's is the exception. The priciest dish they have is their veal chop parmigiana with buffalo mozzarella and spaghetti Pomodoro for less than $50. And trust me, it's worth every penny.
