Milena gets in touch with her Asti roots through the flavours and recipes of her Taste Experience, which show the best of the Piedmontese tradition.

The secret of the Cesarina
I get in touch with my Asti roots through the flavors of my authentically Piedmontese dishes


  • Curly salad with rennet and Alpeggio cheese
  • Crostini alla Cavour
  • Piedmontese agnolotti with butter and sage
  • Spinach or artichoke flan with Castelmagno cream
  • Bonet
  • Tegola

Refined selection of local wines


In the rich culinary tradition of Piedmont, some famous and tasty cheeses stand out; one example being alpeggio cheese, which Milena uses to add flavor to a curly salad with juliennes of rennet to start off her Taste Experience. She completes this delicious antipasto with 'crostini caldi alla Cavour': rye bread with mountain butter and a soft cream of chicken livers, onion, capers and anchovies.

For the first course, agnolotti with butter and sage, a typical local delicacy: a casing of fresh pasta is filled ​​with roast veal, cooked sausage and cabbage. To continue with the home-cooked traditions, a delicate flan (with spinach or artichoke) is served with a  Castelmagno cream, an ancient cheese variety, typical of few towns of Cuneense.

To finish, Milena proposes bonet, a dessert made ​​from soft amaretti and chocolate on a bed of caramel, decorated with roasted hazelnuts and cocoa, accompanied by "tegola" a typical dry pastry wafer, famous in South Piedmont and Val d'Aosta.

"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."
