    Overpriced very average Italian food. Burratta was essentially build your own bruschetta, pastas are not home made (boxed penne), veal portion was impossibly small and over sauced to make up for it. Uninspiring wine list, and served warm. There’s no way this can be one of the best restaurants in area, no way.

    I've been here a lot and I love it. This time the service was a little slow. But it was a Friday evening and the weather was delightful. The place was packed. Food is wonderful. It's very nice to sit outside in the evenings. Best Italian in Pinellas County.

    The food quality at this restaurant has been consistently high over many years. The sea bass was cooked perfectly and my husband’s seafood pasta was loaded with mussels, scallops, clams. Sauces are tasty. There are many good Italian restaurants in the area, but this is a standout. Highly recommend.

    Staff was great but neither of our entrees were hot. Mine was cool, so they reheated and re sauced it. My husband’s was warm. Apologetic but nothing else was done besides the reheat.

    We make it a point to dine at Cesare every time we are in Treasure Island (about 13 mile south of the restaurant). The service, ambiance and food are always spectacular. On this specific occasion, our table had the Primadona Scallops, Fettuccini Alfredo, Agnolotti, and Bruschetta. I would recommend any of these dishes any time. As far as customer service: We had a late reservation and they were able to accommodate our schedule change and move us up. I’m already looking forward to our next visit:)

    Great first dinner here. We didn’t find the appetizer (calamari) or the caesar salads to be anything extraordinary, however I had the chicken parm with eggplant and mushrooms in a pink sauce, and it was excellent. My daughter had the lobster bisque and it too was good. We will be back!

    We had a party of 10 and dinner was seamless! Our server (wish I could remember his name, but I do remember he was studying to be a nurse!) was awesome! He had great recommendations and was highly attentive to all of our teenagers. The food was incredible. Best Italian food I have had outside of Italy. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves Italian food!

    Favourite eating venue However not a good experience last night. Waited close to 40 minutes past our reservation time. After our appetizer it took an hour for our meal to be served. My husband cancelled his order but it was still served. The manager offer no apologies and should have removed the meal from our bill but did not. Disappointing

    Occasional visitor to the Clearwater Beach area over the years and have dined at Cesare At The Beach probably 1/2 dozen times. The food and service has been consistently excellent every time, with my latest visit being no exception. Evening of 3/22/24 was very windy/rainy and they still managed to seat us on time despite having to move anyone dining outside to inside seating. Very friendly and courteous staff and our meals were excellent and very reasonably priced!
