Le Cesarine

From 'scialatielli' to 'pasticciotto', the flavors of Salerno

Salerno / Campania

La Cesarina

The cuisine of Salerno, especially the one of Cilento, proposes abundant plates that add value to the taste and the flavors of the territory, such as olive oil, vegetables, cheeses, meat and seafood. The traditional local cuisine well combine attentive research of healthy and genuine food with love for conviviality, for pleasant moments sitting at the table, happily with friends and relatives.

Rosanna, our Cesarina, becomes an interpreter of this traditional cuisine, and serves inherited dishes from the tradition of Campania and from her ritual family customs.

The secret of the Cesarina
I bring to the table the inimitable scent of the lemons of my territory.


  • Fried fish from Salerno
  • Scialatelli pasta with seafood sauce
  • Filled squids and calamari
  • Fresh easonal vegetables
  • 'Pasticciotto' with custard and black cherries

Refined selection of local wines


Rosanna welcomes us into her home in Salerno to enjoy some truly traditional dishes. We begin with a starter of locally sourced fried fish. This is a rich and authentic dish, made all the more so by Rosanna's carefully selected ingredients from close to home.

For the main course, another homage to Campania's inimitable seafood: it's time to enjoy delicioous 'scialatielli', a fresh pasta typical of the Amalfi coast, with an irresistible seafood sauce. Next, our Cesarina serves stuffed squid and calamari, accompanied by fresh seasonal vegetables.

For dessert, an enchanting 'pasticciotto' pastry, filled with creamy custard and black cherries, a tribute to Campania's ancient pastry-making tradition.

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."
