The food was on the better side for an Italian restaurant in Florida, but when the bill came, YIKES! This place is in a strip mall. It was slightly better than Olive Garden but 3x as expensive.

the food was outstanding and the service was great. my biggest complaint in dining out is getting food that is not hot. Not here... my food arrived piping hot and was absolutely delicious. the pasta is homemade and everything is made to order. just fabulous. without a doubt the best restaurant in Clearwater beach.

Having recently returned to Clearwater, FL for the winter, we went to one of our favorite restaurants this evening! We asked for and had our favorite server. Unfortunately, it was Friday night. Even though we had a 6:00 pm reservation, since we took my mother to dinner, the service could not have been poorer. Our food, as usual, was excellent!... More

Get the Buratta. They're right with description...it is somewhere between mozzarella and paradise! We only got appetizers and desserts but so good we went back twice. Outdoor seating was nice in January!

My grandparents on both sides came from Italy so it takes a lot for me to rave about restaurant Italian Food but I was pleasantly surprised by the food in this nondescript looking little restaurant. Many of the pastas are homemade and made well. The pasta fagole was full of beans and pasta and could have been a meal in... More

Being from New Jersey we where very skeptical of how it was going to be. And I must say that it was a thousand times better then ever expected. It's a little expensive but it's very well worth it and the portions are big.

We have been coming to Clearwater for many years and have several favorite restaurants, but we were directed ot Cesare's by the man who owns the gelato place on Mandalay, who is from Italy himself. We ate here twice last month and were delighted both times. The food tastes and is prepared like the food we've eaten in Italy. Everything... More

Friends of ours gave us a gift certificate to Cesare's. We had never been there before. I ordered the Lasagne @ $21.99. It did not come with a salad or anything else other than some so so bread and olive oil. Since it did not come with a salad, I ordered a caesar salad @$6.90. My wife ordered the Ravioli... More

The food was good but the reviews on Trip Advisor perhaps made my expectations too high. The pasta was fine but nothing special. The linguini appeared to be homemade but the penne did not. The house salad was basic - lettuce with cucumbers and onions, the dressing was nice very light. The house glasses of wine were $9, which seemed... More

We travel to the greater Clearwater Beach area once or twice a year. We have never been to Cesare's because we always thought that Italian food may be a bit much with the hot weather. Well, we were here over the holidays and thought we would give this establishment a try. The restaurant is actually in a small shopping strip... More
