Annaliza is a young girl who, as a baby, has been stolen from her wealthy parents, restopreneurs Lazaro and Isabel. It was Stella, Lazaro's avenging ex-lover, who had the baby stolen with the help of Makoy, her suitor. Pressured with being caught, Makoy leaves the child with his bestfriend Guido, a fishport worker. Guido raises Annaliza as his own daughter.
Annaliza endures challenges and hardships in her young life when Guido eventually marries Stella. But Annaliza's gift for cooking brings her closer to Isabel and Lazaro, not knowing they are her true parents.
Annaliza will discover that Arlene is her half-sister. Both Annaliza and Arlene share the same father, Lazaro.
In the end, Annaliza will discover her true past and is compelled to choose between the man who raised her or her true parents.
Annaliza is a story of a young girl, who is described as an angel, who will bring life and tears and hope to those who cross her path.
The story begins when young lovers Lazaro (Patrick Garcia) and Stella (Kaye Abad) are happily in a relationship. Lazaro feels he has met his match in Stella and does everything to fight for his love for her even as if Lazaro's longtime friend, Belle, (Denise Laurel) has hidden feelings for him as well. Problems arise when Stella decides to stay away from Lazaro because she feels as if his family will think of her as just an opportunist caught in a web of lies. She also hides the true reason why she cannot tell Lazaro about her own problems personally in her life as her younger sister must go through surgery in a state of medical crisis. Stella decides to set up a date with a suitor to help her financially, as a way to pay off the debt, but Lazaro clearly mistakes her as a cheap prostitute. Stella is left brokenhearted, homeless, and pregnant with their child in her womb. Fortunately, she is saved by Guido (Zanjoe Marudo) a good samaritan, who after sees Stella trying to commit suicide beside the docks and abruptly saves her and takes her in.
She then meets Makoy (Carlo Aquino), a friend of Guido, whom she confides to, after taking her into his home as well.

After the success of Maria Flordeluna, Annaliza was supposed to be remade last 2008, to be led by Ella Cruz as the young Annaliza and Maja Salvador as the teenage Annaliza, but ABS-CBN decided to shelve the show.
On September 2013, Andrea Brillantes announced on ASAP 18 that the series will be extended until 2014 because of its big success.
According to data from Kantar Media Philippines, Annaliza successfully conquered the early primetime viewing habit of TV viewers as it reigned in its timeslot with a pilot national rating of 16.7% beating its rival program in GMA Network, Home Sweet Home which only got 8.8%.
