Ciao Caesar

One more eatery has just joined the roster of establishments offering fine food in Cambridge's Inman Square: Ciao Caesar. This "gourmet pizza and pasta" joint looks like any other pizza shop (except for the two Caesar busts with bandanas around their necks sitting on the counter), but it just so happens that Ciao Caesar offers unusually good eats. It has to - local residents have been spoiled by the culinary excellence surrounding them.
The proof of Ciao Caesar's strength is in the menu. Sure, you can get a regular cheese pizza (here, it's elegantly called the Mediterranio; $6.95 and $11.95), but why not go for the Margarita ($7.25 and $11.95), loaded with artichoke hearts, fresh garlic, broccoli, and mushrooms? Or, if you want a variation on the pizza theme, try a veggie calzone ($6.25), a huge creation made from dough, mushrooms, onions, roasted peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, and mozzarella.
Other choices include pasta dishes (lasagna is $6.25; three-cheese ravioli is $6.45); seafood dinners (for example, fried shrimp for $7.95); and all sorts of subs. The food is made to order and comes out hot, hot, hot. The Square just got a little more well-rounded.
Ciao Caesar, at 1261 Cambridge Street in Inman Square, Cambridge, is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturdays from either 11:30 a.m. or noon to 11 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 11 p.m. Call 864-0111.
