Le Cesarine


  • Panzanella salad
  • Tonnarelli pasta ‘alla vignarola’
  • Roman-style stuffed courgettes
  • Runner beans ‘a corallo’
  • ‘Maritozzi’ cream-filled buns

Refined selection of local wines


To begin this Taste Experience, Alessandra serves a starter of panzanella, a hearty salad of tomatoes, bread, cucumber and red onion.

For the first course, we have a delicious serving of tonnarelli pasta, which are square-shaped spaghetti in a vegetable sauce of onions, broad beans, asparagus and peas. A scattering of guanciale (pork cheek bacon), sharp pecorino romano cheese and a sprig of mint provide an ideal balance of flavours. Next, we have Roman-style stuffed courgettes, which are filled with beef and breadcrumbs. On the side, runner beans ‘a corallo’, in a chunky tomato sauce with a kick of spice.

For dessert, delicious ‘mantozzi’, soft buns which are cut open and filled with freshly whipped cream. A truly decadent finish!

Alessandra, a sales executive for a multinational company and a passionate food blogger, welcomes us into her bright and modern home in the EUR neigbourhood just near the city centre. Her passion for cooking was born when she was six years old, as she became old enough to help her mother and grandmother in the kitchen. What started as a fun pastime developed into a true passion, and Alessandra quickly became an expert with all the kitchen tools. She has a fond memory of the first desserts that she made by herself, as the scent of freshly baked cinnamon filled the air – her favourite spice.

Alessandra’s love of cooking has inspired her to deepen her knowledge of Rome’s cuisine, but she always makes sure to add a creative touch to make it her own. To build on her existing skills, she worked towards a professional chef qualification, working alongside Michelin-starred chefs, who taught her a great deal of cooking secrets.

The secret of the Cesarina
My secret is the rolling pin that was passed down by my grandmother Chiara. Every time I use it, it brings back memories of her wonderful home cooking.
