Fabulous restaurant with a more 'fine dining' feel, yet very relaxed at the same time. Bookings were accepted which was essential with such a busy and popular venue. We loved being able to watch the chef preparing food and when it came it was always fresh and delicious. (We ate at Cesare's 3 times during our stay, and each time... More

And that is saying a lot since i think Chicago is a mecca for Italian food. I had the veal Frank Sinatra topped with shrimp, crab meat, and scallops in a piccata style lemon caper sauce with vegetables and pasta. The serving was huge...I took home half for the next day. When the manager saw that I had only eaten... More

We had wonderful food and service at our recent dinner at this restaurant. The calamari was terrific and the food was plentiful. Would definitely eat here again next time we're in Clearwater.

Ate here on a whim while vacationing in Clearwater. Literally chose the place while driving by. Best lasagna I have ever had (that wasn't homemade). I would eat here regularly if I lived nearby. Everyone in my party of 4 loved their dish. The chicken alfredo was reportedly the best my buddy ever had. We were there at a busy... More

Been there a number of times. Why good food and fair price. Have had better but again it's good. Met a business friend there who came over from Orlando with his young family. The kids were well behaved but Cesare all parties can't be wine swilling home runs and when waiters push to clear your plate less than 10 minutes... More

We had dinner there last night and never will again. The food was ok but the service was terrible. We sat for 20 minutes before the waiter came over to ask if we wanted drinks and it went downhill from there to the point of the waiter actually ignoring us. We live on Clearwater Beach and it seemed like the... More

We came the night before a big night out to check out the food. We were amazed with the Eggplant Rollatini. The sauce was outstanding so we booked for 12. They made apps that we picked up and brought to our room. It was all excellent. Then we walked to Cesare's and had a great dinner with a great staff.... More

Reasonable food at high prices. Service was ok but the staff were too busy to keep up. Took a long time to get served and they always seemed to forget one person for every course and had them wait for a further ten minutes.

On vacation from Texas and after spending several hours at the Clearwater Aquarium, we drove down the beach searching for a restaurant to have dinner. We were immediately seated at Cesare's At The Beach and greeted with great service. Would recommend this restaurant after a long day at the aquarium or on the beach.

Hands down best Italian food and cuisine I have experienced at this location or any south of NYC! We ate there last night and are going for seconds on our last night before leaving for home.
