This was our 3rd time there & I can honestly say it's been beyond amazing each and every time. The staff is so friendly and service is always perfect. Since moving from Tampa this is the ONLY place we will ever visit on a continuous basis.

We are originally from Cleveland, Ohio where there are many authentic Italian restaurants, like many mid-west/northern cities. Cesar's was as good as any Italian food I've eaten, including dishes prepared by my mother! The veal parm was tender, Bolognese sauce makes my mouth water just thinking of it. I loved the food.

We booked here in advance as part of our weekend at the Clearwater Jazz Festival. The menu choices were exquisite. All waiters, very friendly and excellent service. The wine list is diverse and has reasonable choices. A nice experience!!

Although we’ve lived in the area for a long time, we had never tried Cesare’s. So, we went there recently on a week night for dinner and were glad we did. The restaurant is a little more upscale and pricier than we realized (there are no prices on their on-line menu), but that was fine given the quality of the... More

I ate dinner here with a large group which allowed me to share/try a dozen classic dishes in one meal. For appetizers the carpaccio was tasty, the calamari was fresh and light with a mild breading, the lobster bisque easily rivaled other seafood restaurants offerings, mussels were prepared perfectly in a light garlic butter. My beef tenderloin was cooked to... More

This italian restaurant is a great local place. We had the Fruit de mare and the Penne terra de mare. Both were excellent. The portions are generous and they did it right. There was a good amount of seafood, perfectly cooked. I was afraid I'de have to look for little pieces but found full scallops, shrimp, calamari, mussels and clams.... More

Another place easy to miss at the end of S. Gulfview, in a strip center, but worth looking for. Courteous, knowledgeable staff. You could come in, as we did, in shorts or dress up, that's the environment. Some might consider it pricey, but considering the meal quality, it is well worth every penny.

I live in New Jersey where there is an abundance of excellent Italian restaurants. It's hard to compete with a lot of these. The food at Cesare's was good in my opinion. The service was excellent. Our waiter, Nick was a truly good waiter and ambassador for this restaurant.

We vacation for a few days on Clearwater Beach every October & truly enjoy a fantastic dinner at this restaurant. The service is terrific, our waiter Nick was courteous & very attentive.
