    Other than only being a beer and wine place we enjoyed the experience. Our waiter was attentive but he had a heavy accent so it was difficult to understand him as he described the specials but he was very polite and friendly. We would definitely recommend and will return the next time we are in the area.

    First time at Cesare. Party of 9. It was a fabulous meal, but best of all was the service from James who really made it very special. We had multiple items from the menu and everyone thought their meal was exceptional. Will absolutely be back, and will ask for a table with James!

    Delicious dinner at Cesare At The Beach. Outside dining was a little cool, but outside heater helped & we were prepared to eat outside. Although the outside space overlooks the parking lot, you still get a view of the bridge & sunset! Service was excellent, waiter was friendly & knew the menu well. We enjoyed burrata appetizer, fresh and generous portion. Bread with pesto oil was also served. Our entrees were very flavorful and also generous portions - Capellini Fra Diavlo - great,spicy, with shrimp. Ravioli with lobster with pink vodka sauce, rich flavor, but not too heavy, and Eggplant Parmesan & garden salad. Everyone enjoyed their meal. If you are looking for quality Italian food, try Cesare’s.

    Sat outside. On the beach is a misleading name as you are not on the beach and you can’t see any water. Only limitation is ambience. The food was fabulous. Had escargot, the pasta special, wife had pasta trio, and I had Osso Buco. All food was great. Nice bottle of STuscan wine and very attentive service by James. Would highly recommend.

    A dinner that exceeded our expectations! The lasagna and chicken parmigiana were delicious. We both thought they ranked as the best we’ve ever had….and we’ve been to Italy! Josh our server was wonderful and added value to our experience. A stop to the table by Ryan was heartfelt and appreciative as he explained his connection to the restaurant. We will definitely return.

    Caesar’s is a delightful little Italian restaurant. It exudes a classic Italian charm that's both welcoming and casual, perfect for any gathering that calls for good food and a great atmosphere. I highly recommend the Chicken Parm and the Eggplant Rollatini. The Parm was pounded thin as I like it, and the marinara was very flavorful. The Eggplant Rollatini appetizer was made of thin slices of eggplant rolled with a delicious blend of cheese and herbs, then baked in a savory tomato sauce. A perfect balance of flavors and textures. Our server’s recommendations were spot on, and he was attentive, yet unobtrusive. Definitely worth a visit.

    My lasagna was excellent, but my wife’s linguine with seafood was gritty because at least one clam was packed with sand. The maitre d’ said sometimes clams with sand in them don’t open, and that’s the chance you take when you order seafood. He acted like we have never cooked clams before. Everyone knows you soak them in water until they open. Their busy kitchen staff was in too big of a rush to do that. That ruined the dinner for my wife. To make matters worse, the restaurant didn’t comp my wife’s entree. Which left a bad taste in our mouths (pun intended). We won’t be back.
