Refined selection of local wines


Simonetta's Taste Experience is dedicated to dishes of aristocratic cuisine of 1700s. Starting with the appetizer: a refined 'gateau en croute', a rustic potato, cheese and ham pie. We will then continue with the first course: 'ziti' with King Ferdinand meat sauce, a rich dish that is believed to have been a favorite of Bourbon King Ferdinand II. Ziti are long-shaped pasta made from durum wheat, and are typically Neapolitan.

As a second course, Simonetta will bring Corrandina-style meatballs to the table, a recipe originating from aristocratic cuisine, accompanied by delicious sautéed 'friarelli' a delicious leafy green vegetable that is only found in the south of Italy. The meal will end on a sweet note with the queen of the Neapolitan pastry tradition: a 'pastiera' that Simonetta prepares according to her family recipe.

Neapolitan cuisine has ancient roots and has been influenced over the centuries by the various cultures that followed one another and dominated the city, particularly during the French and the Spanish rules.

Simonetta offers us dishes that bring the historical vicissitudes of the Neapolitan city to the table. Our Cesarina welcomes us into her beautiful home, and invites us to savor recipes of land and sea created with the flavors of excellent-quality local products.

The secret of the Cesarina
The sea is the voice of my heart, from the Adriatic to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
