Le Cesarine

The Taste of the Langhe

Barbaresco  / Piemonte

La Cesarina

Elisabetta welcomes us in the heart of the Piedmont Langhe, a land rich with history and distinctive flavors. To get an idea of this, all you need to do is look out from the terrace of the house she welcomes us into. The dining room opens onto the magnificent hills of the area, covered entirely by rows of vineyards, where some remarkable wines are born: the Barolo, Nebbiolo, and obviously the Barbaresco, the namesake of Elisabetta's village.

Though this concentration of prized names makes the Langhe an important destination for enogastronomic tourism, it is attractive for its characteristic cheese and white truffle as well. Elisabetta is here to guide us through these flavors and take us on a journey into the culinary tradition of Piedmont.

The secret of the Cesarina
With my rotella, I design my pasta in perfect form.


• Fassone veal tartare with salt, olive oil, pepper, and shavings of parmesan or black truffle
• Seasonal vegetable pie with fondue
• Traditional gran fritto misto
• Seasonal salad
• Chocolate Bùnett, amaretti, scoop of vanilla gelato

Refined selection of local wines


To open her journey into the Langhe's traditional cuisine, our Cesarina serves a Fassone veal tartare. The raw meat is so tender, and is scattered with shavings of parmesan and black truffle. Next we have a delicious pie of seasonal vegetables with fondue - you can clearly see the French influence on these Piedmontese specialties.

For the second course, Elisabetta brings to the table the traditional 'gran fritto misto', a dish rooted in folk culture that combines a variety of meats for a rich and sumptuous result. To accompany this dish, Elisabetta selects a fresh seasonal salad to evoke memories of rural festival days,. 

The Taste Experience concludes on a sweet note: the chocolate 'bùnett', a dessert typical of the Langhe that unites the flavour of cocoa with caramel tones, with a splash of rum that gives a kick of warmth. This delight is served by our Cesarina alongside a scoop of vanilla gelato... a perfect combination.

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."
