Both born and raised in Italy, our founders Cesare and Carlo, know what an authentic Italian meal means. Family and friends gathering around to enjoy each others company with a good glass of wine and the perfect dish. Savor Italy's finest flavors including our award winning lasagna and pastas. Real and hard to find Italian specialities such as pappardelle with imported porcini and wild mushrooms, veal ossobuco, filet mignon in a Brandy sauce, fresh fish and seafood, veal classics and homemade desserts. You can dine in or "al fresco" overlooking the water and Sand Key Bridge while being pampered by our professional staff.

The atmosphere was nice, the service, so-so. Food here was ok, rather bland, and very much overpriced.

We booked here on the recommendation of the owner of the bayside town home we were renting for the week. We were greeted at the door by a small boy in a lovely suit who showed us to our table. The appetisers were all excellent (especially the mussels my son had) and the main courses were excellent. My son's girlfriend... More

I heard much about how I could find fine Italian at Cesare's and I so looked forward to a delightful authentic Fettuccine Alfredo. Being a New Yorker I recognize that perhaps I am overly fuzzy but my dinner companion from St Louis was equally disappointed. My Alfredo was warm with overcooked Fettuccine. Worse yet, the Alfredo tasted as if it... More

My husband and I visited here on our last night in Clearwater. We loved it! The veal was so tender, the service was fantastic, and they even called us the "free beach taxi" to give us a ride back to our hotel which was at the other end of the beach! Would definitely visit again!

We were in town for a pageant and needed to sneak away. This place was amazing. Our server was friendly and helped me decide between a few dinners. They all sounded delicious. My meal was so wonderful I finished it all!! My daughter asked for something special and they accommodated her. She loved it. Wish there was more time this... More

Excellent selections with variety for all appetites. Seafood was the choice of all four of us. Shellfish with pasta for three and local freshly caught was the other. All prepared with special twists which chef handled without a problem. Unlimited bread refills. Very clean and professional staff. Don't judge this place as you shouldn't a book by its cover. In...

I read reviews prior to going to Cesare's at the Beach. I had a Groupon and I have a friend that just got engaged so we went there to celebrate. I had made a reservation online and was seated almost immediately upon arrival. However it took our waiter over 20 minutes to come to the table to get our drink... More

I'm always skeptical about eating Italian when on a beach vacation, but this was Very good. Definitely a bit pricey (especially for pasta specials), but well worth it.
