The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Our only complaint would be that the dinner music being played was too loud.

Fabulous (as always)! Although I enjoy their specialty dishes, I decided to go standard America-Italian fare this time around, and got a plain old Veal Parm. GREAT!! Salad is huge, but great. And their vanilla bean creme brûlée is fabulous as well. Brought our own wine this time--a nice bottle of 2006 Barolo. Their corkage fee is reasonable.

Sehr gutes authentisches Essen. Es gab warmes Baquette mit feiner Pesto-Dipsauce zur Begrüssung, was nicht jedes italienische Restaurant macht. Die Bedienung war nett und aufmerksam.

First time to CeSares and overall great impression! Food was very unique and not the typical Italian and service was incredible and the outside dining was great, Definitely a must in the Clearwater area.

We go there often and are never disappointed. I am working my way thru their menus but ordering past favorites sometimes slow my progress.

My family of 7 had Christmas Eve dinner at Cesare. It was a great experience. The food was very good. The atmosphere was pleasant. We opted to sit outside with some hesitation given a colder night. It turned out to be the right decisions.

James was our server. He was excellent -- great personality, helpful, patient (with 2 elderly parents), and professional.

A special Christmas Eve dinner with my whole family....our meals were exquisite, from apps to pastas to entrees and even our desserts....James provided service that was gracious, unhurried and impeccably attentive!!!

Also, a special thanks to the management who were busy setting up outdoor heaters on the patio to accommodate their patrons on the unexpectedly chilly Christmas Eve.

I ordered chicken marsla and the sauce tasted like beef gravy from a jar. Could not taste any seasonings. Just beef gravy....my husband said his meal was mediocre. The waiter never once asked us if we needed anything. Another waiter did and when I asked about the marsala sauce our waiter rushed over and excused the one waiter who took the time to check on us. The limoncello was the only thing I enjoyed. Way too much money for the food and service needs to do better if I am paying $100 for dinner for 2.

Great restaurant, a must go to !!! This was my first time at Cesare At The Beach. We had the special eggplant appetizer and tuna tartar, DELISH! Then we had the veal chop, veal parmesan and Italian sea bass. All winners. The service was great, knowledgeable waiter. Limoncello dessert was super yummy. I am going back again.
