Three New Restaurants Will Open in Downtown ClearwaterThis summer and fall, downtown Clearwater's Cleveland Street District can expect three new mouthwatering reasons for citizens to come downtown.

Divino Fine Italian, an authentic Italian restaurant, will be the first to open at the end of June at 22 N. Ft. Harrison Avenue, in what was formerly the location of the Majestic Lounge. Divino will offer European cuisine and café-style dining around a fountain, part of a charming décor reminiscent of an outdoor piazza, with fine dining served on overlooking balconies, providing an elegant atmosphere and charming ambiance in addition to the fine food.

La Cachette will be moving from their current location on Indian Rocks Beach, where they have been for more than 11 years, and will be welcomed with open arms to the district. They will serve their classic French cuisine in their new location at 635 Cleveland Street, beginning in October. For more information on La Cachette, go to

The third new addition to the Cleveland Street District will be a new restaurant from the owners of Bellini in downtown Dunedin. The restaurant, called Casanova, is also scheduled to be open in October. Casanova will delight their patrons with gourmet Italian food at 811 Cleveland Street, where Fiore’s Gourmet Deli used to be.

“We are happy to have many progressive entrepreneurs interested in doing business in Clearwater. Even though the economy is in recession, they recognize the opportunities that are here. I am confident that our residents and visitors will welcome and enjoy these upscale dining establishments,” Clearwater Mayor Frank Hibbard said.

These new additions to the Cleveland Street District are part of the new growth the area  has been experiencing, and will no doubt draw even more people into the area. They will provide both locals and tourists alike with a fine dining experience, adding to the quality that Clearwater is coming to be known and appreciated for.
