Refined selection of local wines


Rosa’s experience provides a real Bologna-style welcome! In her lovely apartment right in the city centre, our Cesarina serves a lovely traditional starter of piadine, local flatbreads filled with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Bologna’s trademark ham, mortadella. 

For the first course, Rosa serves Bologna’s famous ‘tortelloni’, pasta parcels stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese, served in sage butter as per the local tradition. Next, she serves meatballs with a side dish of fresh garden peas, a perfect accompaniment for those hot summer days. 

What could be a better way to finish than home made gelato? Rosa treats you to a wonderful ‘crema’ gelato enriched with Fabbri sour cherries.

You can find your way to Rosa’s delightful home through the colourful, winding streets of Bologna’s historical centre. Make sure you take the time to admire the ancient buildings and porticoes unique to this stunning city! Rosa’s apartment is just off the main shopping street, Via dell’Indipendenza, just a stone’s throw away from Piazza Maggiore and the Due Torri. 

Rosa is a lawyer by profession, and fills her spare time with sport and cooking. She’s lived in the city for over 45 years, and is passionate about the area’s culinary traditions. “I took a great cooking course where I learned to make fresh pasta and iconic Bolognese dishes.”

The secret of the Cesarina
