Le Cesarine

The delicious combination of ricotta and spinach

Milano / Lombardia

La Cesarina

Marcella is a real food lover: «I have loved cooking since I was a little girl. I was lucky enough to grow up in a family of fantastic chefs; we often had guests at home and we really liked making dishes with top-of-the range products».

Our Cesarina’s passion led her to her current job: in fact, for many years Marcella was a food-stylist for advertising campaigns and videos and then, in 1999, decided to dedicate herself to working full-time in the food service industry.

Refined selection of local wines


White asparagus is typically produced in the Varese area, that has always supplied Milan with fruits and vegetables. For this reason, Marcella serves them to begin her Taste Experience, mixing them with some warm salad, potatoes and 'gremolada’ sauce.

For the main course, we have some delicious ‘ malfatti’ pasta  with ricotta and spinach, and light meatballs enriched with butter and spring herbs. After that, the traditional veal in ‘tonnato' sauce 'al rosa', with tomatoes and basil as side dish.

Finally, the dessert is truly irresistible! In fact, our Cesarina serves one of the classics of the Lombard tradition: 'Amor Polenta', garnished with a tasty vanilla sauce and with a spicy cherry compote.

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."
