The restaurant has delicious food. We tried penne with pink sauce , pasta fagioli, ravioli, meatballs, and veal Marsala. As an Italian household with many chefs this place is outstanding. Sweet bolognese sauce. The best pasta that I have had in a long time that was homemade and cooked to perfection I have made pasta fagioli over the years but I need this recipe. The topper was the tender veal Marsala.

Second visit to this restaurant. The tenderloin with mushrooms tasted excellent! Service was slow between starters and the main course - also the food wasn’t particularly hot when it finally did arrive. However I attribute this to a very busy evening for the venue. Will definitely visit again!

The soup du jour was a very light and flavorful minestrone, one of the best we had ever eaten. All the food and wine were spectacular! The service is as flawless. The ambience was delightful.

Service was very good and we enjoyed our New Year's Eve dinner here. Sitting on the porch was very nice with pleasant weather. Food was good overall and desserts were especially good. Price was a little steep for overall experience but given it was New Year's, not unreasonable.

Food is great....unfortunately they did not give any attention too my request for pasta “al dente”..... the excuse was that they were very busy....unacceptable for a good italian restaurant......
However this was not my first experience there (the first one was great), so I would give it another chance....

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Linguine Frutti di Mare. It tasted truely awesome, it was generously staffed with all sorts of seafood and made us feel like being in Italy. Highly recommend to make a reservation though, the restaurant seems to be quit busy even on weekdays.

Our second visit to Cesare and it was even better. Our waiter, Sebastian was great—knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. I had the pasta special of sacchetti which is out of this world. My husband had the lasagna—huge portion and absolutely delicious! A true Italian ‘gem’. We will be back!

Sebastian was our waiter. He was knowledgeable about the menu,the specials and the wine. He was polite, professional and friendly.
We enjoyed the house salad, the fried calamari, one person had Veal Parmesan, one person had seafood risotto, one person had veal Frank Sinatra and the other person enjoyed the sea scallops.

Each dish was fresh and prepared with care and attention to details (as there were some adjustments to the regular dishes).

We were all pleased with the entire meal and service
