Le Cesarine

A symphony of flavours, a stone's throw from the Duomo

Milano / Lombardia

La Cesarina

Roberta’s house is at the half-way point between the Duomo and the Basilica of Sant-Ambrogio, about ten minutes from Milan’s main attractions by metro. If you’re having a day out in Milan, this is in the perfect position for you to come by and taste Milan’s typical flavours. 

Roberta welcomes us into her house in Milan’s historic centre to take us on a marvellous journey through the city’s finest dishes. This Cesarina has been honing her cooking skills since her school days; “I started to become curious about local recipes with one of my best friends when we were little. Ever since then, my passion for cooking has been growing. I love spending time enjoying the flavours, and it really helps me to relax.”

The secret of the Cesarina
"I fell in love with Milan's flavours when I was a schoolgirl. My passion for cooking has been growing ever since."

Refined selection of local wines


If you want to discover the most authentic flavours of Milanese cuisine, all you need to do is take a ten minute walk from Piazza Duomo. Roberta welcomes us into her house in the centre of town to take us on a special journey right into the heart of Milan’s prized dishes. 

We begin with a fresh and delicate broad bean and ricotta tart, a perfect starter. Next, for the first course, we have a delightful pasta with vegetable ragù. 

For the second course, our Cesarina serves veal with salsa verde, an intensely flavoursome dish accompanied by seasonal vegetables.

To finish, we have strawberry semifreddo (depending on the season) or alternatively, an invitingly aromatic panna cotta. Delicious!

Cesarina's Reviews

Host was quite pleasant,good company, and engaging. By the end of the evening we were struggling a little with the conversation but we overall hosting skills were good. Home was very nice. Dinner was enjoyable. We did enjoy the typical, simple menu and preparations. We discussed and I would suggest that the Cesarines be able to have one Chef's choice in their menu. I like the idea of having one surprise and giving the Cesarines the freedom for one item.

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."
