Clara's has always done phenomenal business which is why they recently moved to a new larger location to accommodate all their customers. While that certainly puts a star on their report, I feel like their food quality has gone down since. New cooks? I had my daughter's baby shower there on a Saturday evening and appetizers, especially the bruschetta were... More

The food is good if nothing special. The service the same. The portions are large, but the prices are a little high for what you get.

I recently went to Clara's and am sad to say I was disappointed. . My little neck clams were extremely salty and tough. It's the first time I ever had an issue with clams.

I hate to say it but I was very disappointed with our dinner here the other night. First, I don't like the fact they don't accept reservations unless you have a party of 5. Usually, if this is the case and you tell the restaurant you have young kids they'll make an exception. They did not. We were a family... More

Anthony- We are sorry to hear about your less than great experience.

I know it can it frustrating to wait for a table with kids so I promise we will address soon. As for the food,... More

Clara's is always packed out on weekends, and we finally decided to find out why. Now we know! Tasty food, excellent portions, home made salad dressings - fresh ingredients, and friendly and excellent service. The seafood primavera was very good, as was the chicken parmesan. Can't wait to go back.and try other things.

A top Italian restaurant now in a new classy building at 7 Bridges near Edwards. The owners have always gone the extra mile for food and service to the community, but the new facility really makes the entire experience superb! The entire staff works exceptionally hard to deliver consistently outstanding flavorful dishes, and the portions tend to be huge! The... More

Clara's has sat in an aging strip mall in a valley hardly noticeable from Route 53 for years. It's most outstanding feature by far was the great food. I guess it played to the old adage " A rose by any other name...". A little more than a year ago, Clara's relocated less than a1/2 mile away in a brand... More

The new location is beautiful! We are just as happy to pick up Clara's and bring it home to pass up the crowds now and then. It's one of those places where I can't seem to get past ordering my favorite dish, Chicken Pesto. Its what I always have, because it's ALWAYS good!
