Le Cesarine


  • Pizza and Foje (cornflour pizza with wild missicanza salad)
  • Buckwheat and chickpea sagne
  • Veal roll flavoured with in season vegetables
  • Grandmother Carmelina’s Ultrasquisita (My grandmother’s multilayered dessert. First layer of shortcut pastry, then ricotta cream, chocolate, cherries, cedar and french meringue)

Refined selection of local wines


The starter chosen by Flavia to inaugurate this Experience of taste is a classic of the abruzzese cuisine; we have the traditional “pizza e foje”, a tasty cornflour pizza served with a fresh wild misticanza salad.

To follow, the delicious buckwheat “sagne”. Our Cesarina mixes this typical local pasta - which owes its intense flavour to the flour with which it’s made - with chickpeas. As a second, a veal roll flavoured with in season vegetables: the taste of the meat meets the scrumptious hues of the fresh vegetables, in a particularly rich and delicate result.

At this point, the only thing missing to end the lovely meal is dessert: Flavia has made 'Ultrasquisita', “extra-delicious”, a multilayered dessert which combines the softness of shortcut pastry and french meringue with the intriguing flavours of ricotta cream, chocolate, cherries and cedar. A recipe inherited from grandmother Carmelina, who would often prepare it on feast days.

Flavia welcomes us to the splendid setting of Chieti, a lovely abruzzese city half way between the mountain and the Adriatic sea. The historical centre of the city, where our Cesarina lives, is considered one of the most ancient in Italy and rises and the top of a hill: the view here is so beautiful that sometimes, when speaking of Chieti, people refer to it as “the terrace of Abruzzo”.

Young Flavia learned to love cooking thanks to her dear grandmother Carmelina, who passed the closely-guarded family recipe secrets down to her. Her repertoire of flavours completely belongs to the regional culinary tradition, delicious dishes that our Cesarina serves along with an accurate selection of local wine.

The secret of the Cesarina
I fell in love with cooking thanks to my grandmother Carmelina: she was the one who passed the family recipe secrets down to me.
