Le Cesarine

The forgotten tastes of Piedmont

Grazzano Badoglio / Piemonte

La Cesarina

Cristina welcomes you into the lovely city centre of Chieri, a small medieval village full of monuments and places of interest: from the wonderful  S. Domenico's church, with its gothic style, to the baroque S. Giorgio's church, to name but a few. 

Aside from the tourist attractions, there are also many local dedication you’ve got to try. Cristina serves dishes made with traditional Piedmontese products - such as asparagus and cherries - made with love and passion by a real local chef.

The secret of the Cesarina

Refined selection of local wines


«My purpose is to bring back the traditional Piedmontese recipes, many of which have fallen out of use or have been forgotten altogether!». The result? A rich and delicious menu, beginning with an antipasto of 'caponét' - courgette flowers stuffed with meat - , 'lingua al verde' - veal tongue with green sauce - , courgettes stuffed with amaretti and, finally, ‘uova rosse’ (red eggs). 

For the main course, a sophisticated nettle risotto, an original dish that is a real family favourite, and a second course of delicious turkey steaks, eggs and courgettes 'in carpione'  with a salad dressed in balsamic vinegar on the side.

Finally, one of the great classics of the Piedmontese desserts: an exquisite bunét, a pudding made using cacao and dried amaretti.

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."
