“Best Italian Food I have EVER had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2009

What a treat to visit Cesare's On the Beach. My group was skeptical because it was in a stripmall, but don't let that stop you! From the moment we walked in, we felt like we were the only table they had to serve- the attention was that great. Cesar himself was delightful, always making sure everything was perfect.
Fresh pasta is made at the restaurant and that was obvious. I had the grouper, a local favorite, and it melted in my mouth. My son had a pasta trio that disappeared quickly, and my friend ordered his favorite, Saltimboca, and said it was the best he's ever had.
My only regret is that Cesar and his crew live too far away! One of the best dining experiences ever.

We went to Cesare's for a family dinner. This is not a cheap, fast meal. This is greet me at the door , white glove service. We had soup to nuts, wine and dessert and couldn't of been happier. The pasta is homemade as are the desserts. It is not cheap by any means but if you are looking for an excellant meal with the best italian this is the place. My 7 year old had the escargot and the pasta with clam sauce and asked repeatedly when we could go back so he could have " the same meal". We had the mannicotti " to die for!" the veal , actually we had it all and couoldn't wait to go back! This is our favorite place in Clearwater beach. Take your honey out for a romantic meal, you will not be disappointed!
