Le Cesarine

Naples welcomes you with open arms

Napoli / Campania

La Cesarina

Anna’s house rises up on the sloping hillside of Vomero, one of the most beautiful and luxurious areas of Naples. This is where our Cesarina welcomes her guests and takes them on a voyage of discovery through the secrets of typical Neapolitan cuisine.

“It became my passion little by little, over the course of many years,” she recalls, “I believe that food is one of the best tools we have to taste and deeply understand the culture of a place.” This is particularly true of Naples; this huge city boasts a rich and varied heritage of traditional recipes, which goes far beyond pizza and pasta.

The secret of the Cesarina
Just like a musician that builds a song out of only seven notes, I try to strike a chord by only making traditional dishes using the huge range of ingredients that nature provides me with.


  • Endive pizza
  • Potato "Gattò" (potato ‘gateau’) or bean and endive soup
  • Neapolitan meatballs in a pine nut and raisin sauce
  • Friarielli (leafy vegetable typical to the region)
  • Gratin of peppers
  • Neapolitan patisserie or Caprese chocolate cake
  • Hot "sospeso" coffee

Refined selection of local wines


For this Taste Experience, Anna offers us a well and truly authentic journey through the typical products and flavours of Naples. She starts us off with an inviting endive pizza, whose ingredients are also in the first course – a warming bean and endive soup (or, alternatively a potato tart made with the well-known provola from Agerola)

For the second course, Anna serves up wonderful neapolitan ‘polpette’, or meatballs, in a rich pine nut and raisin sauce. The side dish is friarelli, which is a delicious leafy vegetable typical to the region, and a gratin of peppers.

Dessert is a homage to the famous traditional patisserie of Naples, a classic Pastiera – shortcrust pastry filled with ricotta and candied fruits, or alternatively a torta Caprese (a rich chocolate and almond or walnut cake). The cherry on the cake, however, is the caffè sospeso, which, according to tradition in Naples, is a coffee paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity.

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."
