    La bouffe est incroyable! Par contre j’avais demandé une table avec une belle vue et j’ai eu la pire du resto malgré qu’il y’en avait de libres sur la terrasse. Serveur excellent! Je recommande la bisque et la lasagne!!

    We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary being served and pampered by our waiter James. His attentiveness, the food and the wine made our evening even more special. We choose this place to celebrate every year when we vacation in Belleair Beech, Florida. There’s no place better!

    The food and service at Cesare is outstanding! My husband and I were staying on Clearwater Beach (even though we are locals) and went to Cesare two nights in a row because it was so delicious! We saw several things on the menu that we wanted to try so we went back the next night. The staff is so nice and very accommodating. The only bad things about this place are close tables and the lack of ambiance. Thankfully we were seated at a booth the first night and sat at the bar the second. I really do not like close tables when I'm eating and theirs are super close. The spaghetti alla carbonara is incredible. I added chicken for protein but it really didn't need it and I ended up pushing it to the side. The fettuccine alla bolognese is to die for! The medaglioni con gorgonzola e funghi had amazing flavors and the pappardelle with wild mushrooms was on point! I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Absolutely wonderful place to enjoy an excellent Italian meal. Outdoor seating is available and with perfect weather, was the perfect choice for dinner. The antipasto for two had a nice selection of meats, olives and roasted peppers and easily would have fed three adults. The eggplant parmigan was several thin layers and lots of cheese. The pasta trio was penne and meat ravioli and with a light red sauce and a spinach ravioli in an alfredo sauce.....both entrees were excellent. Our waiter answered all our questions and was very attentive. A definate 10 out of 10 rating.
