Description: 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.

“The food is consistently great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We have dined at Cesare's several times, and every time we are so pleased. If you love Italian food, this is where you should go. They serve hot bread with a pesto olive oil that is to die for. The lasagna has a homemade pasta/béchamel sauce, the best I have ever had. If you like seafood the chief has a great selection. I also can't say enough about their deserts. They are delicious! I would suggest you make reservations due to its popularity and it is a small restaurant.

“Good food but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Cesare's has good food and large portions but it is expensive. For the money, I would go down the block to Gondolier's.

“Nice, But Overpriced!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

When you walk in it is a nice place and the staff is very friendly. The menu is expansive and expensive. We ordered the calamari appetizer and it took a while, and the calamari was like rubberbands but their red sauce was very good. Also the servers may not be aware that they are visible at all times especially when they are picking up food to deliver and they lick their fingers then go grab bread with their bare hands and put in the basket.... They claim their pasta is homemade but I'm not buying it. Also they charge $3.20 for a soda and its from a can. Overall not impressed but if not for the groupon, I probably wouldn't have gone and now I may not go back.
