Le Cesarine

A dinner together between Castel Sant’Angelo and St. Peter’s

Roma / Lazio

La Cesarina

Strolling from St. Peter’s to Castel Sant’Angelo, it is possible to enjoy one of the most typical and succulent dinners of the Roman culinary tradition, paying special attention to the quality of the ingredients. It is here that we meet our Cesarina Tiziana, who opens the doors to her beautiful home to let us discover the typical dishes of the local cuisine and a fanciful tradition composed of simple, authentic recipes.

The secret of the Cesarina
I don’t hesitate to use a bit of fresh red pepper to highlight the flavors of my dishes.


  • Bruschetta with tomato and bruschetta with garlic and oil
  • Spaghetti alla gricia
  • Roman meatballs in sauce
  • Pan-fried chicory
  • Chocolate cake

Refined selection of local wines


This is a Taste Experience in the name of traditional Roman cuisine. To begin, Tiziana brings a classic antipasto to the table: bruschetta with tomato, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Next, we have the first course, which is an irresistible classic of Roman cuisine: pasta alla gricia; pasta alla gricia is a traditional local recipe known as the precursor to amatriciana sauce because, given the absence of tomatoes, it represents a 'poorer' version that was more accessible for peasants in the past.

As a second course, we enjoy roman meatballs with sauce accompanied by pan-fried chicory.

To close on a sweet note, our Cesarina will bring a tasty chocolate cake to the table.

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."
