I love Cesare for being so accommodating about mailing gift cards and buying others dinners. Their staff is world class and this remains the best classy restaurant on CWB. Happy to support them for the last decade and hopefully the next decade too.

Waste of money. Overpriced generic Italian food in a strip mall. Service was poor. Food took over an hour to get. Fish was overcooked and they never brought out salads. They charge $4.50 for soda or lemonade. Total tourist trap. Never again.

Kitchen was severely backed-up; restaurant was too crowded. I know staffing is difficult and it's a holiday, so I would not recommend it on a busy night. However, I like the restaurant under normal conditions and return there nearly every time I visit Clearwater.

Never fails to provide outstanding service and food!! Don’t let the lack of a clear waterfront view or a little road noise detract from a memorable meal. This establishment is a local gem! We brought friends who had not been here previously that are sure to return and rave about the meal and service provided by James and team.

Just so unexpected….in a strip mall but don’t let that throw you off. The sauces are hands down the best Italian we’ve had from NYC to Miami.

This was our third visit here and it was fantastic -- as we expected. It was my birthday and we got there at 5:30. The staff was extremely attentive. The Calamari appetizer was tender and delicious with no rubbery hints at all. The lobster bisque was as good as ever. For entrees we got Lasagna and Penne Ala Vodka which were both amazing. Add in a bottle of Chianti (my preference to cake) and TO GO containers for leftovers and it was a wonderful experience at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!
