Le Cesarine

Summer in Rome, an homage to my native land

Roma / Lazio

La Cesarina

The secret of the Cesarina


Miniature fried sourdough pizzas
Fresh pasta with courgettes and courgette flowers, with pecorino and crispy guanciale
Saltimbocca alla romana
Seasonal vegetables 
Bignè di San Giuseppe

Refined selection of local wines


Lucia offers us a Taste Experience that shows off Rome’s finest and most liveliest colours. Her menu is made up of traditional ingredients with a modern twist, with a nod to the region where she grew up, Campania. 

We begin with little pizzas, home made with sourdough, topped with tomato and Grana Padano cheese. This is a typical starter in Campania. 

For the first course, we have a classic Roman dish, fresh pasta with courgette and courgette flowers, with pecorino cheese and crispy ‘guanciale’ pork. 

For the second course, Lucia serves another Roman dish, ‘saltimbocca’, exquisitely tender veal topped with Parma ham and sage leaves. This is an intense and delicious dish that she serves accompanied by seasonal vegetables. 

Finally, for dessert, we return to Campania for an unforgettable ‘bignè di San Giuseppe’. Delicious!

Cesarina's Reviews

Una amiga me habìa hablado de las “Cesarinas” y me habìa recomendado que no me perdiera una

cena con ellas. Bueno,...tenìa razòn! Lucia nos preparò una pasta fresca divina y hasta pude aprender a

preparar unas pequeñas pizzas que son deliciosas!. Cuando vuelva a Roma seguramente repetiré!

"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."
