Le Cesarine

"The sea is the voice of my heart (from the Adriatic to the Tyrrhenian Sea)"

Napoli / Campania

La Cesarina

Neapolitan cuisine has ancient roots and has been influenced over the centuries by the various cultures that followed one another and dominated the city, particularly during the French and the Spanish rules.

Simonetta offers us dishes that bring the historical vicissitudes of the Neapolitan city to the table. Our Cesarina welcomes us into her beautiful home, and invites us to savor recipes of land and sea created with the flavors of excellent-quality local products.

The secret of the Cesarina
The sea is the voice of my heart, from the Adriatic to the Tyrrhenian Sea.


  • Au gratin tomatoes
  • Octopus Genovese
  • Fried anchovies with provola cheese
  • Red beet salad
  • Babá

Refined selection of local wines


Simonetta offers us a Taste Experience dedicated to the flavors of the sea: fish is the protagonist today. We will start with a delicious appetizer of baked tomatoes au gratin, before moving on to the main course, a delectable octopus Genoese, a seafood version of the better known meat-based Genoese, a Neapolitan recipe. The Genoese is an onion sauce that goes well with many types of short pasta.

Afterwards, Simonetta will serve some flavorful fried anchovies stuffed with provola cheese, accompanied by a refreshing red beet salad.

We will end the meal with a great classic of traditional Neapolitan pastries: the babà.

Our customers says

"This was one our best experiences in Bologna. Our hosts, Gianni and Lorenza, were a well travelled and interesting couple about similar ages to ourselves. They also spoke perfect English, having lived in Canada for many years. Gianni taught us how to make tortellini from scratch which we ate with our meal. Gianni is a fine and the rest of the meal was excellent. Their place is an apartment in a medieval Palazzo which was well worth seeing on its own. We really enjoyed it."

"Our dinner with Angela was the best experience of our visit to Rome. The food was delicious, and it was delightful to talk with Angela and her Mother about food, life in Rome, work, and the state of the world in general. This experience would have been impossible for us without Le Cesarine."

"We had a wonderfull lunch time with Tania (30 minutes outside from Bologna). She was an excellent host and very charming. We enjoyed her traditional courses (antipasti,strozzapretti con salsiccia, brasato al limone) very much and could highly recommend her. The atmosphere was very relaxed and it was easy to drive to her. We would come again."
