The food is excellent and so is the service. The hours are a bit odd. The former owner served breakfast early, then lunch. No dinners. The new owners serve dinners 5 days each week. But breakfasts do not start until 11AM and most people eat...More

Lovely little find in downtown Clearwater. Great marinara sauce, not bland like most places. Meatballs were also awesome.

The kitchen is run by the owner and his wife is the chef, enough said. We found the food to be above average in taste and freshness. From raviolis to the veal dishes to desserts, everything was good.

Italian food. Owner/Family member cooking. Had the eggplant sandwich. All fresh ingredients on hard crust bread. Too big for lunch but couldn't stop myself from eating the whole thing.

My first time in the neighbourhood. As we wandered up and down, we came upon this little restaurant. It has a very nondescript exterior but once you get inside, it is homey and spacious. It seems many places in the area (including the Cleveland Cafe)...More

A notorious landmark to the area, Cleveland Street Cafe has had longstanding success having been in the Clearwater area for the past twenty years. Alessio and his wife Agata they have taken his passion for food and used it as fuel to drive the Cafe to greater heights. Just come to America in June of 2016, taken their Italian culture and used it as an authentic influence to the highest degree. The genuine nature in which the concept is delivered is what separates the restaurant from any contenders. Alessio and his team are meticulous in their efforts to provide the best of the best and their contributions are prevalent from top to bottom, making it a must while visiting the area.

The chef Agata driven menu provides something for everyone, and the popularity can attest to that exact fact. Everything is fresh and made to order, and she source the ingredients in an efficient manner to ensure a quality and trustworthy experience time after time. Alessio’s newfound influence has allowed guests to be immersed into the Italian cuisine in authentic manner, and his efforts are nothing short of remarkable. Whether it is the Eggplant Parmesan, the Homemade Lasagna, or the delicious Fettuccine Alfredo, Cleveland street Cafe has something for everyone and is sure to adhere to any palate no matter the instance.
The desserts bring everything full circle for the cafe and is reason enough to stop in and give the cuisine a try. The homemade Tiramisù is a fantastic option worth giving a try as well as the Apricot Pie, both are rich and flavorful and compliment each meal to the highest standard. The restaurant also provides takeout, online ordering and Catering Service if that is preferred.
