“Great food”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Arrived by chance on Sunday evening. Due to party inside, had to eat outside. Not a big fan of the outdoor fare. Some traffic but still a view of the bridge, water boats and sunset at Clearwater. Really quite pleasant
As the sun went down, the staff put on portable heaters, though a sweater would have been OK.
Had a simple meal of salad and pasta. Large salad and good sized crab stuffed ravionli?
Friend could not finish the lasaunga? It was extremely rich, with various cheeses. Though full we topped off splitting the creme brule. Not the usual brule, this was firm and tasty. Wonderful.
Ended with coffee. With tip 88 dollars. Excellent food, very good service. Not quite sure if the price may have been a little high, but still an enjoyable evening with a great meal.

Food was good but we got seated on the patio under a heater. There was a lot of noise from the parking lot and street. If you want a quiet dinner you will need to be seated inside.

“Cafeteria Style Italian on the beach”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Expensive for average food in almost a cafeteria style setting. No ambience at all. If you use Groupon expect poor service. We're locals and if they can't win over the locals their doomed.

“You Gotta Love Livin', Baby...”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Don't let the fact this restaurant is in a mini strip mall detract you from giving this Italian restaurant a try. This place goes above and beyond in channeling Frank Sinatra with its background music featuring 'Old Blue Eyes'.

It is not very often you find a restaurant offering veal dishes these days and this restaurant is the exception. Here you will find veal served in numerous formats...Frank Sinatra (prime veal with chopped scallops, shrimp, crabmeat and sautéed in a light lemon butter sauce and topped with capers), Marsala, Morandi, Piccata and Saltimbocca!

There is a small terrace area at the front for outdoor dining. The servers tend to be young and full of energy which is required to frequently turn the tables at this popular restaurant nightly. The bistro-like eatery has a moderate wine list with a wide price range and house wines by the glass are fairly priced.

Interestingly enough ‘Cesare's At The Beach’ heavily advertises in the countless tourist publications available through the region and you should be able to find a range of coupons to obtain a discount on your dining. There is no need to pay full 'retail' at this restaurant and if you are staying in the area for any period of time, it is likely you will visit this restaurant more than once.

“My favorite restaurant!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I live in the area, and Caesars is the place I go most often. The food is so good that I have a hard time switching from my most loved entrees (Veal Frank Sinatra and the Scallops) to try something else. The menu is varied and the food always fresh and plentiful. Sometimes Caesar will break out in song, and more often he will come around and great each table. A welcome, comfortable setting makes it a favorite for locals.
