We visited Cesare's on a recommendation from the hotel concierge at The Hyatt. I have visited Florida many times and am Italian and cook homemade Italian food. Cesare's had the best Italian food I have ever eaten from a restaurant. The pasta was handmade saccotini and the Veal Frank Sinatra was amazing! We were served our wine by the owner himself and enjoyed a cannoli with possibly the creamiest ricotta filling. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the owner's son Dino was at the front door greeting guests. I would highly recommend Cesare's to anyone who knows authentic Italian cooking and appreciates the time and effort that goes into preparing it so you enjoy each and every bite! I can't wait til I can return - it will be a definite stop!

We like our Italian food and out 8 year old knows what he wants in a Pizza and this place exceeded our expectations. We got there as it opened and it was soon busy and that speaks volumes considering its a mile or so from the Hilton and at the end of a group of non descript shops.

Service was excellent, food sublime. Homemade pasta, well balanced flavours, nice wine. I was overall a bit disappointed with Clearwater Beach as its very commercial but this is a beacon of tradition and excellence. I have no idea if Cesare is the owner or just a name chosen but I would like to think he was fortunate enough to put his name to such a great place.

This was by far the best Italian in Clearwater area, the Lasagna was the best I ever had and the fish was to die for. The service was great; nothing better than a family owned/familyrun restaurant. It's in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you, you are coming for the food!

Had a large family dinner at Cesares and they did not disappoint. The service, especially for a group of 14, was excellent and the waiters all very friendly. Most everyone in our group enjoyed their meal...favorites included the eggplant and chicken parms and the fettucine alfredo. Pasta is homemade and outstanding, as was the bread. Prices are reasonable and portions substantial.
