Le Cesarine

The Adriatic’s magic

Cormons / Friuli Venezia Giulia

La Cesarina

The slovene border is about three kilometers away. Alessandra welcomes us to Cormòns, a small centre which lies at the feet of mount Quarin in the province of Gorizia. A town of little more than 7 thousand inhabitants but with a millenial history, which dates back to the Roman age, when a military base rose on these lands.

Cormòns is a border land, and its multi-ethnicity reflects in its cuisine with Austrian, Hungarian, Slovenian, Jewish and Venetian influences. And Alessandra’s menus, cooked with organic ingredients from her husband’s vegetable garden or with home made products, are a perfect synthesis of the meeting of these different cultural roots.

The secret of the Cesarina
My secret? I only use organic ingredients, grown in my husband’s vegetable garden. And when I have time, I make delicious jams.


  • Sardines in “saor”
  • Pasta with fasolari
  • Cuttlefish in broth
  • Radicchio from Trieste
  • Jam omelettes

Refined selection of local wines


The Adriatic is not very far, about twenty kilometres. That is part of the reason why Alessandra chooses to inaugurate this taste Experience dedicated to Friuli’s traditions with a typical seafood starter. In fact, sardines in “saor”, meaning served wth sweet and sour onions, are brought to the table. The flavour is delicate and unique.

We continue with sea flavours, since our Cesarina serves pasta with fasolari as a first course. These delicious mollusks are fished in the area of the Alto Adriatico and are often served in Friuli. If you have already been conquered by the freshness of the fish, not to worry: there is still time for delicious cuttlefish in broth, enriched with the taste of garlic and perfumed with wine. A simple but succulent recipe which Alessandra delivers with superb radicchio from Trieste.

To finish, dessert. Our Cesarina gives us a taste of her abilities having us tra one of her jams, which which she stuffs some delicious sweet omelettes.

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."
