Le Cesarine

Flavors in the shadow of the Madonnina

Milano / Lombardia

La Cesarina

Roberta welcomes us into her Milanese apartment, well furnished and surrounded by greenery. From the windows one can admire the steeples of the Duomo, the basilicas of Ticino, and above all, the skyline of this Lombard capital.

Since she stopped traveling the world as a photographer, our Cesarina devotes much of her spare time to Lombard gastronomy. She is on a journey to discover the traditional dishes of the metropolis in an act of love for her city. "At home, we have always had tasty cuisine, but with special attention to the choice of ingredients; I love going to buy directly from the farmers." A way of "offering the best quality."

The secret of the Cesarina
I love going to buy the ingredients straight from the farmers.


  • Vegetable pie prepared with artichokes or seasonal vegetables and served with cheese cream
  • Spinach lasagna with ham
  • Veal fricandò with gratin baked potatoes
  • Roberta's chocolate cake with hazelnuts and whipped cream

Refined selection of local wines


If you really want to appreciate Milanese cuisine, you can't miss its staple ingredient - cheese. Roberta is keen to show off cheese in all its forms, and serves up a cream cheese for her starter, in the form of a seasonal vegetable pie. Next, a Milanese classic, lasagne with spinach and ham. This simple marriage of flavours is absolutely irresistible, and is presented beautifully. 

Next, a fricandò of veal. This is a favourite for Sunday lunches in Milan, and is accompanied by a crispy potato gratin. 

To finish, a dessert that Roberta is so proud of that she named it after herself! A delicious chocolate cake with hazlenuts and soft whipped cream.

Roberta is really a gentle and funny woman, she worked really hard to satisfies all of our needs and made us feel like at home.

"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."
