Le Cesarine

Authentic flavours between Rome and Latina

Velletri  / Lazio

La Cesarina


  • Donkey coppiette with tomatoes and wild mint, mint omelettes
  • Tagliolini with ricotta and courgette flowers
  • 'Crazy' thrush
  • Panfried chicory, fennel and orange salad
  • Ricotta and semolina cake
  • Coffee and grandmother’s little doughnuts

Refined selection of local wines


To begin this Taste Experience, Chiara serves an antipasto of donkey ‘cups’ with tomato and mint. The tender meat is cut into strips and flavoured with chili and spice, and served with little omelettes with Parmigiano cheese and mint leaves.

For the first course, we have a classic local dish; handmade taglioni pasta with creamy ricotta cheese and delicate courgette flowers. Next, we have another speciality from the area, ‘tordi matti’, which are rolls of horse meat filled with Parma ham fat, garlic and parsley. These are accompanied by a side of sautéed chicory and a fennel and orange salad.

We finish on a sweet note with a delightful ricotta and semolina cake, followed by a strong coffee with mini donuts prepared according to Chiara’s grandmother’s special recipe and little pastries dusted with icing sugar.

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."
