Le Cesarine


  • Barbagiuai
  • Ravioli with ricotta and purple artichokes
  • Goat and beans
  • Panissa
  • Pignolata tart

Refined selection of local wines


We begin our Taste Experience with Barbagiuai, flavoursome pastry parcels which are filled with pumpkin and cheese and then baked in the oven.

Next, Lino serves handmade ravioli, pasta pillows with a creamy filling of goats’ cheese ricotta and purple artichokes, served with a drizzle of the finest extra-virgin olive oil. For the second course, Lino opts for a delicate goat kid gigot, a boneless cut which is stewed and served with Pigna or Conio beans, which are legumes typical to the area. On the side, we have panissa, which is similar to polenta but with a more solid texture.

To round off the Taste Experience, we have a pignolata, a soft shortcrust pastry tart covered in amaretto meringue, pine nuts and a dusting of icing sugar.

Lino welcomes us into his liberty-style home in Ceriana, which looks out over fields of greenhouses and sweeping olive groves. Ceriana is a richly historical medieval village nestled in the hills of Sanremo, surrounded by ancient walls. It has become particularly popular with foreign tourists over the last few years, partly due to the strada del Poggio, a well-known cycling ascent in the area.

Our Cesarino has worked as a fireman for over 20 years, and in his spare time is a passionate photographer and cook. Both activities allow him to make the most out of his creativity, and he often travels to the city of Bergamo to take cooking classes and hone his technical skills. His cooking style is a celebration of the scents of simple Ligurian cuisine, always staying faithful to his roots.

The secret of the Cesarina
In my version of the traditional Sacripantina cake, I sometimes use coffee instead of liquor, which is a surprisingly perfect combination with the chocolate cream.
