We love finding new places to try so we drove up from Bradenton to check out Cesare's at the Beach. Didn't expect to need a reservation at this time of year but they are obviously very popular. Customer service was wonderful, we decided to eat in the Bar area as we like the small cozy atmosphere, a little to hot... More

Visited here on a Groupon we got. Food and service was great and a small view of the beach off the beaten path. Will return!

This cute little place on Clearwater beach is one of THE BEST Italian restaurant's I've ever eaten at. The entire staff is friendly and everything was on point. We cannot wait to go back & have already recommended Cesare's to a ton of people. Simply outstanding!

Have eaten here twice during our short stay in Clearwater. The service is excellent, the atmosphere relaxed and unrushed and the good out of this world. If you want to get out of the mainstream diner feel then I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Loved this little strip mall restaurant. Great service, reasonable prices and good food. Will definitely return here, they are only open for dinner and have limited outdoor seating.

I couldn't tell the difference between their meal and a dish from Olive Garden - unless you compare prices. Cesare's is twice as expensive as Olive Garden. Good food - but not worth it. They're only open for dinner - no lunch hours.

Went to celebrate my son's 12th birthday. The kids loved the menu. The food was great. The service was attentive and friendly. They must be Frank Sinatra fans. We recommend the gnocchi, the Veal Frank Sinatra and the Pollo Caesar Augustus.
