Le Cesarine

Fresh flavours by the lake

Anguillara Sabazia / Lazio

La Cesarina

Anguillara Sabazia is an enchanting town near Lake Bracciano, about half an hour from Rome. Nadia is originally from the busy city of Rome, but she loves taking in the views of Lake Braccino from her viewpoint, which looks out over its calm waters.

Nadia has always been a passionate cook, and is more than happy to admit that her life more or less revolves around the kitchen! Now she’s here to welcome guests into her splendid villa, which is surrounded by a gorgeous garden complete with a little lake. She can’t wait to show off the fabulous secrets of her local cuisine. 

The secret of the Cesarina
Cooking has always been the focal point of my family life. My dad knocked down a wall to make my kitchen bigger and now I spend most of my spare time in there!


  • Whitefish carpaccio with toasted bread crostini and roquette
  • Spaghetti 'Lago Eva'
  • Stuffed pike
  • Puntarelle salad with anchovies
  • Lemon and mint Bavarian cream

Refined selection of local wines


Nadia’s house and its stunning panorama provide the perfect setting for a culinary adventure. With the backdrop of Lake Bracciano and the Sabattini mountains, she guides us through the delights of her local cuisine. 

To start, we have a whitefish carpaccio with rocket and crostini (toasted breads). For the first course, Nadia serves spaghetti del lago Eva, pasta in a tomato and fish sauce, freshly sourced from Lake Bracciano. This is the perfect way to enjoy local flavours, as is the second course of stuffed pike in herbs, served with a puntarelle and anchovy salad on the side. 

To finish, we have a lemon Bavarian cream dessert with mint, a refreshing way to round off the experience.

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."
