Le Cesarine

A meeting of two ancient traditions: Naples and Rome

Roma / Lazio

La Cesarina

Two culinary traditions, geographically close but with vastly different characteristics and specialties, meet at the table of Renata, our Cesarina, for the joy of her guests.

The Roman and Neapolitan cuisines are married together for this Taste Experience, celebrating a union of tastes, flavors and fragrances, the imagination and creativity that characterize Italian cuisine. We see here that Renata’s dishes encapsulate the flavors of Vesuvius and the Roman Countryside, building an imaginary bridge of flavors between the two cities.

The secret of the Cesarina
My almond cake recipe has been passed down for many years in my family.


  • Rice Arancini and stuffed spirals of flaky pastry
  • Eggplant casserole
  • Meat roulades with sage
  • Seasonal vegetable gratin
  • Grandmother’s chocolate and almond cake
  • Cream gelato with amaretti

Refined selection of local wines


Renata's Taste Experience includes the flavors of two marvellous traditions: that of Neapolitan cuisine and that of Roman cuisine. We start with an antipasto which is rich in flavors: arancini di riso, rice balls, accompanied by appetizing stuffed spirals of flaky pastry.

We continue with a delicious eggplant casserole and fragrant meat roulades with sage. As a side dish, Renata brings a seasonal vegetable gratin to the table.

For a sweet conclusion, our Cesarina presents a chocolate and almond cake prepared according to a recipe which has been passed down in her family, with a cream gelato enriched with amaretti.

"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."
