Le Cesarine

The flavours of Lake Bracciano

Anguillara Sabazia / Lazio

La Cesarina

Anguillara Sabazia is an enchanting town near Lake Bracciano, about half an hour from Rome. Nadia is originally from the busy city of Rome, but she loves taking in the views of Lake Braccino from her viewpoint, which looks out over its calm waters.

Nadia has always been a passionate cook, and is more than happy to admit that her life more or less revolves around the kitchen! Now she’s here to welcome guests into her splendid villa, which is surrounded by a gorgeous garden complete with a little lake. She can’t wait to show off the fabulous secrets of her local cuisine. 

The secret of the Cesarina
Cooking has always been the focal point of my family life. My dad knocked down a wall to make my kitchen bigger and now I spend most of my spare time in there!


  • Shortcrust pastry baskets filled with savoury mousse (mortadella ham, pistachios, gorgonzola cheese, celery and nuts)
  • Lombriucci pasta (made with local flour) with Amatriciana sauce
  • Pork loin 'arista' with pink grapes
  • Sautéed sprouting broccoli (from Anguillara)
  • Chocolate fondant (made with local honey as a substitute for sugar) flavoured with bitter orange

Refined selection of local wines


This classic menu shows off the best of Lazio’s cuisine. For the antipasto, we have some delicious puff pastry baskets filled with a mortadella, pistacchio, gorgonzola, celery and walnut mousse. 

After this flavoursome starter, it’s time to enjoy the first course. Nadia serves ‘lombriucci all’ammatriciana’ a pasta typical to the region served with the famous amatriciana sauce, rich with tomato and pork ‘guanciale’. 

For the second course, we have roast pork loin with pink grapes, served together with a side dish of sprouting broccoli from Anguillara. 

Finally, for dessert Nadia serves a chocolate fondant flavoured delicately with local honey and bitter orange. Delicious!

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."
