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.

Yummy but noisy!

I had the grouper. It was delicious. Very nicely prepared. The lobster bisque was not what I would call great just ok! The calamari was excellent. My husband had the mahi- mahi he loved it. We were celebrating birthdays they sing to you and bring you the best tiramisu I have had except for my Daughters mother-in-law.

We were a little early for our 7pm reservation and seated right away. The owner greatest us and was very nice . We both loved our meals, homemade lasagna, angleotti, and veal saltimbuca. We enjoyed a slice of Delicious cheesecake and a tiramisu for dessert. We will definately return !

The owner and staff were very accommodating and the food was absolutely delicious...and they let us hang out and enjoy the beautiful evening even though they were closing.

Being Italian and from NJ/NY it's very difficult finding authentic Italian cuisine - Cesare's is a homerun, I have been here twice and I have yet to be disappointed!

it is on the expensive side so we usually used Groupon for a deal. Just found out they have a limit of 2 coupons. Too expensive to go without a Groupon. The food is definitely worth the money. Best Escargot we ever ever had. Must try.

Very nice restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. We were seated outside as requested. One of the owners was there to greet us in a very friendly way. We followed the recommendations of our excellent server Dylan. The food was delicious and the wine plenty. We had a very good time. The tasty food and the courtesy of our... More

Great greeting and service but the food was sub-par from the appetizer thru the main course. Of the four of us dinning, only one of us liked (not loved!) the meal. The appetizer was cold, the main courses did not have good flavor. Just an all around disappointment.

This is clearly a popular restaurant as we drove around 15 minutes looking for parking. When we arrived we were told we didn't have a reservation but then they found it. Despite me making a reservation through Open Table and mentioning it was our anniversary and requesting outdoor seating, we were seated inside. I had called in advance to confirm... More

A lot of times you get average service in restaurants in high tourist areas, but Cesare's seems to take some pride in servicing dinner patrons with some enthusiasm and effort. Our waiter worked very hard and did a nice job of making us feel welcome. The food was good and the restaurant itself has a nice feel to it. I... More

We had a large group on a Saturday night and they somehow fit us in last minute! We met the owners Cesare and Carlo - they were so welcoming and made sure our experience was just perfect! Our waiter, Dylan was just as good - right on top of everything! We had appetizers, entrees and desserts - there wasn't anything... More
