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.

Really expensive. Really small portions. Really good food. It was 20 to 40 bucks a plate. Then another 10 bucks for a salad. Then another 50 on drinks. You are looking at 150 in food another 30 in tip.

This is a wonderful higher end restaurant on Clearwater Beach. We visit at least once during the month we are vacationing here. The staff is always very friendly and are willing to offer suggestions. It seems to have many repeat guests who are greeted personally by the owner/manager. The food is really wonderful....

Sub-par experience last evening when my husband and I dined during the early bird special hour. We both ordered veal, which had little taste and was too chewy, and the tomato sauce was way too peppery. Service was also poor. Based on other folks' reviews we were looking forward to our dinner, but we didn't enjoy it at all. Was... More

Absolutely delicious cuisine. Fried Calamari was one of the best ever tasted. Everything is made to order and can be customized if needed. Great selection of wines as well. Located in a non-descript strip mall so you would never expect this quality based on the exterior, and the seaside location. Service was excellent and attentive. You will not be disappointed....

The wait staff was outstanding. The food was quality but each dish was over salted and you couldn't appreciate the true favors of the dish. Probably won't go back

We tried this place after driving by. So glad we did! The food was fresh and delicious, and the service excellent. All four of us, kids included, ordered something different and were all equally pleased. Light desserts and good wine made the meal even better. We will definitely recommend to friends visiting the area!

Whenever we visit Clearwater Beach we make a trip to Cesare's. Authentic Italian food is consistent and delicious! Located just before Sand Key, it's about a 15 minute walk from the Clearwater Hyatt, where we stayed - also wonderful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals here. I had the lasagna and my husband had the Chicken Parmesan (not on the menu, but they'll make it for you). We both loved our meals, as did our two picky kids. Dylan was an excellent server. We enjoyed our dinners so much we came back a second time on our week-long vacation, and... More
