Anguillara Sabazia is a town and comune in the Province of Rome, Lazio, central Italy, around 30 kilometres (19 mi) northwest of Rome. It nestles on a small cape on the coast of Lake Bracciano; its medieval center and its beach make it a popular destination for tourists.

Anguillara is served by a local train (line "FR3", or Rome-Capranica-Viterbo Railroad) which connects it with Rome (stations of Roma Ostiense and of Valle Aurelia) in around 40 minutes.

About 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the town lies the small, volcanic Lake Martignano, also popular with tourists. The two lakes and the surrounding area have been declared a Regional Park and are under a strict naturalistic control.

A two-part episode of the American sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond was shot in the town.
