Le Cesarine

Campania cuisine: from fried pizza to Caprese dessert

Napoli / Campania

La Cesarina

Naples is a veritable outdoor museum. History and art combine in this narrow city between the sea and Mount Vesuvius, ensuring unique and fascinating results. Moreover, there must be a good reason if, in 1995, UNESCO chose the entire city as a "World Heritage Site".

We can admire all this beauty while comfortably sitting on Gabriella’s terrace. From here, we can see the island of Capri at a distance, and the view looks directly onto the Gulf, creating a decidedly romantic atmosphere. The show continues inside the house, tastefully decorated by our Cesarina and her husband. In short, the perfect setting to enjoy a Culinary Experience immersed in Neapolitan tradition.

The secret of the Cesarina

The kitchen? For me it is an art form, a way to express my creativity


  • Little fried Neapolitan pizzas, filled with Ricotta cheese, salami and Parmesan
  • Pasta and slow-cooked beans 
  • Meatballs in a tomato sauce with raisins and pine nuts
  • Grandma’s garlic and rosemary chips
  • Caprese tart

Refined selection of local wines


Gabriella serves up Neapolitan cuisine's most authentic flavours. Her starter of fried pizzas stuffed with Ricotta cheese, salami and Parmesan, is a mouthwatering introduction to your journey. 

Next, our Cesarina serves pasta with slow-cooked beans, a rich and hearty main course, whose hours of preparation are certainly worth the wait. Next comes a typical dish of the Neapolitan tradition: meatballs in a tomato, raisin and pine nut sauce; an ancient home recipe, born from the need to use up the previous day's stale bread - waste not, want not! 

First, the bread is soaked in milk, before being combined with minced meat, parsley, pine nuts, raisins and Parmesan, and shaped into balls. The meatballs are fried and added to an exquisite tomato sauce. This dish is made all the more irresistable by garlic and rosemary chips, from Grandma's recipe.

To finish off, Gabriella serves a Caprese tart, an inviting dessert of chocolate and chopped almonds, dusted with icing sugar. It's the perfect end to a perfect dinner straight from the heart of Campania.

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."
