Refined selection of local wines


To begin our journey through the the traditions of Naples, Assunta and Rosanna serve up a starter that is simply delicious: ricotta balls wrapped in Parma ham, with a local wine. This winning combination gives a hint of the delights that lie ahead - and, sure enough, next up is a great classic of Neapolitan cuisine - a ‘crown’ of rice laden with pesto and almonds, a very original and delicious first course, topped with diced tomatoes and basil.

For the second course we have a ‘polpettone’, a large meatball, stuffed with aubergine. This was traditional peasant meal in Campania and it marries together the intense flavour of the meat with that of the aubergine. To make it even more tempting, our Cesarine serve a side dish of pepper gratin and roast potatoes.

We finish with one of the region’s most famous pastries; ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present ‘babà con panna’, a unique dessert that will win you over with its fine liquorice taste.

Assunta and Rosanna have known each other for years and years. They are both teachers at a local middle school, where they got to know each-other and became the best of friends, finding out they had a strong passion in common: cooking. Together they offer some of the foundations of the Neapolitan tradition: on the one side the passion for past and present great cooking, on the other the attention to an always warm and welcoming reception, a trait of Naples and its people.

Our Cesarine welcome us into a beautiful house in the historic Santa Lucia district, just a few steps away from Caracciolo seafront, which opens onto the splendid Neapolitan gulf. In this lovely location Assunta and Rosanna guide us through the discovery of Campania’s culinary culture, which is a mix of rich local traditions and international influences.
