An old standby in Prati, Cesare is a willing slave to tradition. Classic fish dishes like fresh marinated anchovies and sardines, and mixed seafood salad, quell seafood cravings. Homemade pasta with meat sauce is the primo to order, and saltimbocca (thinly sliced veal with prosciutto and sage) or the thick Florentine steaks are the ultimate meat-lover's dishes. Also try the €40 "menu toscano"—a great, multicourse value. The general menu's tendency toward stick-to-the-ribs
comfort food makes it a great place to go in the autumn and winter, when the cooler weather ushers in heartier dishes featuring truffles and game.
