Excellent food, preparation and presentation always consistent. My favorite dish is the Frank Sinatra, veal podcast topped with shrimp, scallops and crab.

My husband and I both thought this was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. We will definitely go back. It was conveniently located close to Pier 60, where we took a sunset cruise.

Went twice in a week's time. Very competent cooking and service. A nice selection of pastas and meat dishes. Do not overlook the specials. Portions could be a bit larger and wines can be priced a bit more delicately. But the fact that we went two times within a 6 day period of time should serve as a ringing endorsement.

Somehow this restaurant just never "came up" but we all decided we wanted Italian. We split two appetizers, the Mozzarella Caprese and Escargot. I knew it was going to be a great dinner after they arrived. The Veal Frank Sinatra was absolutely delicious. My wife had the veal Piccata. Our server was a young man named Nick, he was fantastic....

First, the restaurant is not at the beach, it's in a strip mall just before the bridge. Second, when I ask a wait staff person to recommend a wine, I expect a recommendation, especially when the prices aren't cheap. So when I get an "I don't know they're all the same to me" response that's not a good start. Then,... More

We were looking for a place to get a decent dinner after having gone on one of the dolphin excursions in Clearwater. The menu at the seafood place next to the dock did not look appetizing so we got in the car and headed south, maybe a mile or two, when I saw the sign for Cesare's. We agreed that... More

Stay far away from this place! The manager is rude and overbearing and kept staring at us for no reason. He then came over and tried to fight the people in my party asking to "talk outside" to the point we got up and left. They need to learn customer service 101 and respect your paying customers. Very bad business... More

Way more to this story than this short inaccurate review. Combative couple in party of 12 that originally had reservations for 17 people was not pleased with table accommodations. After changing the arrangement of the table twice per their request still were not satisfied. After 15 minutes the situation escalated when the gentleman decided to direct profanity and gestures at... More

Cesare's is one of the best Italian Restaurants. We went two nights in a row due to the fresh, flavorful and fine service. The staff is fantastic especially Brenda and Niko. The portions are perfect and I strongly recommend the Bruschetta, Lasagna and Chicken Marsala. To be honest, everything is good. I highly recommend Cesare's and suggest to make a... More
