Just ok

We really try to like this place but they seem to disappoint more than enjoy. Their meals are inconsistent in quality, the service varies from really good to really really bad. Nice place but needs some better direction.

Can't handle large groups, an hour later no one had food...rude servers that didn't seem to want a large group (about 20 of us) management wasn't concerned in the least that we did not have a good experience. Once service is that terrible...you really can't remember anything else, so I have no comment on food.

Tried the Cesares trio gusto, well the cold cuts were not fresh they only had 2 slices of each meat and the rest of the sub was filled with lettuce and onion . I'm on the fence wether to try them again.

This is a very nice modern Italian restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food was good but nothing to write home about. Where they fell short was in their service. Our server tried to do a good job but clearly had too many tables.

We stopped by for lunch and really enjoyed our meal. My wife had linguini with Alfredo sauce and I had manicotti. Fairly large portions and very tasty. The bread that was served with the meal was fresh and delicious. Very clean restaurant with a friendly staff.and reasonable prices for lunch. Good enough to deserve another visit in the near future... More

Have been to this restaurant a few times and they are always very busy so the wait staff is so busy that they forget to be friendly. It also limits their rounds to the tables. The prices are a bit expensive and I think overpriced. They sit large parties and sometimes the food takes forever to be brought to the... More

This was a 50/50 split for us. There were 4 people in our party and half were satisfied with their food and half were disappointed. I got a pasta dish called Jombolti which was great maybe a little pricy at $15.75. The person who had the personal pizza was also satisfied. One person got Chicken parmigiana and was unimpressed and... More

The service was horrendously slow there was 4 people there and my sub took almost 35 mins (chicken parmesan sub) which was more like chicken fingers on hard bread and spaghetti os sauce with nasty tasting cheese on top

Terrible. I had the soft shell crab special. It was horrible. I'll describe it: A soggy mess of nasty tasting goo which smelled horrible and had so much lemon in the sauce it was like lemonaide. The Caesar salad was horrible. LOTS of cheese... that was not really good parmesan, and it was all clumped up on the bottom of... More

During another quick stay in Chester we selected Cesare's for dinner over our norm. We found them by doing a "near by" search from the Hyatt Place web page since thats where we were staying again. The online menu had something for everyone but I couldn't decide and it was getting late as I was hungry and needed something. I... More
