The eggplant parmigiana was delicious. Well made, great flavor and crispy cheese on top. The Norcina was creamy and delicious with a spicy Italian sausage added. You can choose whatever type pasta you prefer. Service was friendly and welcoming. I would recommend a visit for solo, couples or large families.

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) close after lunch. We asked if we were too late but the friendly waitress told... More

Great, fresh, REAL Italian food! All made from scratch and absolutely terrific. I am a pasta lover but usually it's not easy to find the real deal. Well, this place has it :) Very convenient location too, with extra parking in the back

If you are looking for the real lasagna - look no further! This is it! Made just like the one I taste every time I travel to Italy! All made from scratch, the pasta, the tomato sauce...it just melts in your mouth. I love it so much that often I order a large tray as a take out for dinner.... More

Went by last night so thought we would try this morning. Husband, wife team run the restaurant. Very friendly. Ordered a change to breakfast and didn't have to pay extra. They came back and asked if I wanted to add toast, free since I didn't get tortilla shell. Most places wouldn't do that. Good breakfast.

Thank Brenda S

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.
