Really enjoyed our dinner. Great authentic Italian food. Very personable service including from the owner. Very thankful to find this spot in Clearwater Beach. Many restaurants should take note of how personable they are to customers.

Fantastic Italian food --
Fantastic Italian food -- sublime -- we had the gnocci as an appetizer because my husband loves it so. Then our table had spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli, pasta, pasta, pasta, all mouthwatering. Service was fantastic -- our waiter from Jersey knew every ingredient, had great recommendations and was timely, never intrusive

Going Italian at Cesare's
The food was excellent and very Italian. The service was good, but our waiter stayed pretty busy with other tables - it was a Friday night. The prices were higher than indicated by Trip Advisors as every plate is priced separately. In other words, your entree doesn't come with a salad and a side vegetable or starch. Unless the entree is a pasta dish or a dish that incorporates veggies, they come at additional cost. Not that they are priced outrageously, just that you need to plan on spending more than indicated at Trip Advisors.

One of favorite places on the beach
We have lost track of the number of times we have been to Cesare. The always have great food and excellent service. Try their special pasta dishes or enjoy some of the best seafood in Tampa/ St Pete.

I went to this independent traditional Italian place expecting a good meal. What I got was probably the best fish I've had since moving to the Tampa Bay area 10+ years ago. My mother had joined me and said it was one of the best fish she's ever had (and she's 76). It's a small place in a small strip mall on the edge of the Clearwater Beach community, away from the hustle and crowds of the beach. We sat outside and still had a little view of the water and it was so quiet and pleasant. We dined early (around 5:30 pm) and Cesare arrived before we left. He was very congenial, greeted each guest and was truly interested in their opinion. The service was excellent!

The food was absolutely amazing! Although the prices can be a little steep, the food was out of this world. Great for a special occasion.

A great discovery
Superb food, comfortable ambience, excellent service. We will return as often as possible.

Excellent Italian Food
I located Cesare at the Beach on Open Table, Tripadvisor and Yelp. The reviews were consistent and they were right on!. The pasta is homemade. The table split a linguine carbonara that was excellent. Portions are a nice size and can easily be shared. We were a table of 5 and each person ordered something different. There were no complaints . The service was excellent. Professional, but down to earth. The dress is resort casual. I appreciated the presence of the owner. He went from table to table to assure that everyone's meal was perfect. He also made you feel welcome and like a group of regular customers. If you are in Clearwater Beach go to Cesare's on the Beach you won't be disappointed

My favorite restaurant on Clearwater Beach! Awesome as always!

Food was really good.
We were surprised to find a storefront casual dining spot with such good food. One issue was the lasagna was salty but everyone else enjoyed. Nice tender veal and handmade pasta. Very nice shrimp.
The server was wonderful.
We went back two days later.

Best Restaurant on The Beach
Without doubt, the best restaurant on Clearwater Beach. Food & service are both superb. Veal dishes are special as are standard Italian fare such as lasagna. Wine selection is superb & complements the outstanding menu. Little pricey but great value. Do not miss if you are an Italian food lover. Really special.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well worth our vacation time. Wish we lived closer! Niko our server was attentive and made great recommendations. What a great place to eat in Clearwater!
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a nice place at the southern end of Clearwater Beach. Everything about this dining experience was pleasant. I've already recommended it to friends and family.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I recently relocated to the area and was looking for good "first date" spot. I have used Open Table for many years and when I read the reviews decided to make a reservation. Cesare At The Beach did not disappoint!
The dining area is small and comfortable. It reminds me of many of my favorite places in San Francisco. The host and wait staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was good and reasonably priced. My date was very happy with the experience so that's an added bonus!
All in all, a great choice and will definitely return!

Nice Italian eatery
I went not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. The food was great! The wine list had a great variety. Staff was friendly and aimed to please.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
love to eat Italian food
This was my first visit to Cesares and it was a pleasant surprise. I would compare this restaurant to the quality you would find in a NYC restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was delicious to say the least. It is more upscale than what you would ordinarily find in a beach surrounding area. It was a little pricey but well worth it . i will definitely return.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Italian restaurant, well above the average Olive Garden-esque typically found in tourist attractions.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Cesares on the beach several times. They never disappoint.
Great Italian food.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sublime Italian; Fabulous Meal!
From the bruschetta to the lasagna and penne vodka to limoncello and wine, our party of five women enjoyed every last bite of this authentic Italian cuisine! Cesare himself gives each table personalized attention and ensures everyone is having not only a great meal, but a memorable experience. Would recommend to anyone in the Clearwater area for a girls' trip, date night or family outing. Superb from beginning to end!

Best Italian food in the area
We were pleasantly surprised at Cesare's. After living in NY and NJ for over 30 years, we did not think there was really good Italian food here. Yes, there is. The salad was fresh and tasty with just the right amount of dressing. The entrees were freshly cooked and very flavorful. The pasta was not swimming in sauce. We like a little sauce with our pasta, not a lot of sauce with a little pasta. The service was excellent, and since we were celebrating our anniversary, we were given a complimentary dessert. We plan to come back and bring friends with us.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome authentic italian food
Great italian food, authentic and made fresh to order. My pasta was great. It's in a strip mall but don't let that stop you. The inside is very nice and we enjoyed our dinner here very much. The owner even was there to talk to us as we were leaving. We were only visiting Clearwater but if we lived her, we would come weekly.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Italian Food!
The food was excellent, our server was wonderful, the menu is great...I would go back for sure....little gem in Clearwater!

Another Great Expierence
Our favorite neighborhood place Over 100 meals the past 10 years to include opening night. Remains the best Italian restaurant I the region of Tampa , St Pete & Clearwater. Try the chicken Augusto. Or a veal dish. Can not go wrong. Super find!
9/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love Cesare's, always
Definitely a neighborhood gem. Quality Italian food, great service, relaxing environment. And to cap it all Cesare himself come around and says hello :-) They have a good wine list too. Reasonable prices. Definitely a reliable bet for a tasty Italian dinner in friendly surroundings.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
With out of town friends
With old friends from Atlanta. They echoed our opinion of the best Italian food South of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Sustained excellence every time since 2004 when we were at opening night.

My husband and I have been dining at Cesare's weekly since the day they opened. The owners and staff make us feel like we are part of the family. The food is consistently Exceptional. We have so many favorite dishes that it's hard to just pick one. I highly recommend Cesare's on the Beach!!

Cesare's - terrific Italian
Truly authentic with fantastic food and great service
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We sat on the patio, beautiful night for it. Our 1 complaint is the tables on the patio easily moved around, seemed too light weight.
There were 4 in our group and we ordered lasagna, Italian dish with chicken and eggplant and chicken pram. Each of us said it was the BEST Italian food we had ever eaten! It was all delicious with generous portions. The desserts we equally wonderful since we had a cannoli, tarami su and mousse. Lastly, and just as wonderful was our waiter, Nick. We LOVED him.. Knowledgable, professional and had a great sense of humor! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Best food on the beach
This restaurant has all
The dining bases covered. The owner Cesare and his staff engage each customer with attentive service and great food. There is not a bad choice on the extensive menu. Once you try them your hooked. Will be back for a third time soon!

Great Saturday Night with Friends
Joined a couple for Dinner, service was great, the only thing keeping the food from getting FOUR stars is the gnocchi seemed almost store bought not as good as last time…however, the always on the special sacchettini was outstanding, the osso bucco was very good, its a great spot for regulars and a great spot for visitors to Clearwater Beach - you won't be disappointed you came!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great find away
Very nice spot away from the main restaurant scene. Very attentive service. Could see that a lot of other diners were regulars.
Food was excellent.
Opportunity for both inside and outside dining.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
A must try!
Great little Italian place at the beach. My husband and I have been there a number of times and try different menu items each time. Everything we have tried has been delicious. They have a great carbonara, best I have had since the north end of Boston.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing Beach Fare
This spot is an amazing gem hidden in between the normal beach fare of Clear Water Beach. Expect the VERY best Italian food to be found anywhere! I had the Lasagna which literally melts in your mouth. While is a bit spendy it is worth every cent!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cesares has classical Italian food
First time diners at Cesare's. The owner was very welcoming, and the servers all professional and helpful. I had the lobster bisque which was close to (but not quite) as good as the best Florida lobster bisque I have ever consumed (second only to Cafe de Marco in Marco Island). The mozzerella in the Caprese could have been a bit better quality, but the seasonin, with balsamic, basil and olive oild was superb. The pesto dipping sauce for the warm bread was excellent- very garlicky and you just wanted to eat the whole loaf with it. The pastas we had were home made, large portions with great ingredients made with loving care, just like in Italy. The pesto pasta and the shirmp pasta were both excellent. Too bad we were too full for desert.

Jazz Festival Interlude
While taking a break from the Suncoast Jazz Festival, we dined at Caesars, and were very pleased. The homemade pasta in linquini with pesto and penne bolognese were superb.

Truly authentic Italian dishes with incredible flavor.

Dinner At our Favorite Restaurant
We have been dining at Caesar's since his opening night seven years ago. If you love great Northern Italian food, you have found heaven at Caesar's! The antipasta is superb. Our main course favorites include osso bucco, chicken augusto, and any pasta - try the pink sauce as it is outstanding. Great chanti wine selection. Don't miss if you are in the Clearwater Beach area. By far, the best restaurant on the Beach!
