Excellent restaurant with large, well prepared servings of standard Italian cuisine. Excellent selection of appetizers, entries, and deserts. Excellent pastas and sauces. Very reminiscent of NYC Brooklyn/Staten Island Italian restaurants. Excellent service from an all male wait staff. Convenient location.

I’ve been coming here for years- it was always a fairly expensive place to come but the food was always superb. It feels like maybe they changed chefs? The bread for example tastes like store bought white bread- the garlic white wine and the scampi sauce (separate order) was absent of garlic! I won’t cross it off my list but for a bowl of pasta to be $20 it should taste full of flavor.

We asked for a specific table and were able to get it even though it was Easter. The food was excellent from the salads to the veal Frank Sinatra and the Grouper Mediterranean was cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable even though the restaurant was full and bustling. It was a delightful evening.

We like to end our annual visit to Indian Rocks Beach with a great meal at Ceasar......the service is always wonderful,Sebastien was our server on this visit. The food is delicious......the menu is varied, with daily specials. Our menu choices were the Fra Diavlo and Veal Piccata, both were delicious. This restaurant is wine and beer.....I had a glass of Moscato, and it was very enjoyable. We have taken guests there when they visit us and they have enjoyed their meal also. If you are looking for a 'special' restaurant on your visit to this area, this is the one for you.

Another visit, this time with extended family. It was a crowded night with spring break still booming in Clearwater Beach, but the service was prompt and attentive as always and the food came out hot, well-prepared and delicious as we are accustomed to. We shared an array of hot appetizers and pasta entrees, and there was not a complaint to be heard (as usual!) Start to finish, a good dining experience. Go to Cesare! (just not on a night when I want reservations again :))

We used a Groupon and went for early bird, not realizing that Groupon did not apply to early bird. Had pasta Alfredo ($23)- entire meal was terribly dry. Food is mediocre. Prices are out of line. Salad for $9.00? Come on. I wished we would have gone to Olive Garden. Tourist trap.

Disappointing. My husband had the seafood Fra Diavolo which should be spicy but it was not. I ordered the veal marsala which was the brown gravy version. Since it did not come with pasta, I ordered a side of angel hair pasta. With no mention of an upcharge, there was a $7.00 charge for this side in addition to the $32.00 charge for the veal dish. Not impressed with this place.

Food was great but the server was a little off maybe just having a bad day. A bit pricey for some of the menu items such as basic pasta dish like spaghetti is 19.90. Good size portions and daily specials. Average meal price for our meal was $30 not including beverages. Salad was a la carte and we had 2...a Caesar side and tossed side salads. One member of our party had the eggplant appetizer as a meal hence that lowered avg meal price.

Food was great. Started with escargot, salads are large so shared a Caesar salad. We both chose osso buco for dinner and upgraded to have it with risotto (cost us each $5 website said $1.50) but dinner was very good. Highly recommend the tiramisu for dessert. Only serve beer and wine. We chose a bottle of Amarone, complimented are dinner perfectly.

Would strongly recommend, but for you know it is not on the beach, it is in a strip mall.
