For those who have read my reviews, you know I evaluate at least one Italian restaurant in every town I visit. Cesare's was in the are of my stay and my wife and I. Thought we'd give it a try. The atmosphere was perfect (we selected an outdoor table on the patio), the service supreme (thank you, Paul) and the... More

We don't go here much as it's a bit pricey for what it is and also caters more to senior folk and tourists. But it is good quality and the service has always been great.

I had been in town all week and was ready for something besides typical American Seafood and beef. So went to Cesare's for Italian. The menu was large, with entrees at about $20 and up. I chose Chilean sea bass. It was lightly breaded and fried with a wine and capers sauce on it. It was served with a vegetable... More

My wife and I went to Cesare's At The Beach for my wife's birthday. They have both indoor and outdoor dining. We chose to eat outdoors, and though the atomsphere isn't perfect, it is definitely a nice place to spend an evening eating some of the most delicious Italian food you will ever eat. I had the lasagne verdi, which... More

A tiny place that We have driven by so Many times since we've lived here, is a diamond in the rough. Though the menu prices are up there with the best of what Clearwater's resorts have to offer, their food was well worth the price! Seriously, Delish! I had No room for desert and I'm sorry I missed it. Unfortunately,... More

Tell me the price of the meal for what you received was not worth it. I had the lasagna which was okay but not that great. You receive proximately a 3-inch by 3-inch by 2-inch piece of lasagna for $21. That's it! If you wanted a salad or anything else it was extra. The waiter was knowledgeable.

Had a very ordinary, bland meal here. The escargot was unimpressive, the Caesar salad was small and needed anchovies, more cheese, and frankly more taste. The sea bass really didn't look like sea bass, and the seafood risotto was extremely watery, and really looked like rice, not risotto. Really poor risotto. Prices were expensive. Not likely to come back here.

This restaurant is close to the beach and does have patio dining but there is really no water view. We had a reservation but our reception was less than normal. We entered and stood by the reception desk but no one paid any attention for almost 5 minutes! We were even looking at the reception screen to see what tables... More

I had the lasagna and was not impressed, too little meat and too much cheese. It reminded me of Chef Boyardee. My husband liked his mussels and veal. I thought it was just average.
