It can mean "wise" with the meaning that is implied in "wise guy". „Băiat deștept” can also have this meaning, but usually you would refer to such a person as „șmecher”.
Otherwise, "wise" is „înțelept”. An old person with lots of life experience could be considered „înțelept”.
Clever also means intelligent in English, so you can always use the romanian word for that: „inteligent”. Otherwise, „isteț” and „deștept” are possible translations.
