Taking a cue from the famous cheese-making tradition of the region and the vast crop fields spread over the surrounding hills, Assunta brings the lemon 'riavulilli' to the table: small spun dough shapes stuffed with smoked cheese, handmade and flavored with Sorrento's most famous fruit. 

To continue the Taste Experience, our Cesarina opts for a delicious pasta 'ncasciata, with eggplant and mozzarella whose main secret lies in its preparation, as it is baked in the oven for several hours.

Afterwards, Assunta offers grandma Assunta’s sweet dumplings, a typical family recipe, accompanied by sweet and sour eggplant and friarielli, typical sweet green peppers that are a classic symbol of Neapolitan cooking. This is a menu capable of bringing to the table all the freshness and flavors of Campanian hinterland vegetables.

Lastly, a dessert that is once again inspired by Neapolitan culture, eggplant and orange peels with chocolate, which is such a distinctive and wonderful pairing. To satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth further, our Cesarina also serves the cherries in syrup and a selection of home-made liqueurs.

Assunta welcomes us in an authentic "paradise on earth". How else to describe Meta, a small town of the Sorrento peninsula overlooking the Gulf of Naples: green hills planted with walnut and olive trees that descend to the turquoise sea and, in the distance, the silhouette of the island of Ischia. 

Our Cesarina's dishes sum up the heart of this land. Getting in the kitchen, for Assunta, means diving into family tradition and local history. An example? The sweet and sour dishes, which Assunta has rediscovered collecting and experimenting with almost-forgotten recipes.
