Le Cesarine

The scent of citrus fruit

Casteldaccia / Sicilia

La Cesarina

Casteldaccia is a charming town on the Tyrrhenian coast of Sicily that preserves traces of ancient Arab and Norman settlements within its historic center. It is a town particularly well-known for the production of Sicilian pastries, including almond cookies, buccellati, cannoli and cassata. Casteldaccia is also renowned for the quality of its wines that have been locally produced since the early nineteenth century, when Duke Edward began wine-making and trading the wine that can still be found today on many tables around the world.

In this town rich in history and culinary excellence, we will meet our Cesarina Rita. She will will serve up some of the typical local specialties in her dishes.

The secret of the Cesarina
From panelle, to anelletti pasta timbale, up to the cannoli: all dishes that recreate the "sapuri", that is "flavors", of my Sicily.


  • Seafood salad and boiled octopus
  • Timballino of annelletti pasta with sardines and wild fennel
  • Swordfish and beccafico sardine roll with stuffed mushrooms
  • Seasonal fruit, small almond pastries and Sicilian Cannoli

Refined selection of local wines


Rita's Taste Experience is filled with the sweet scent of Sicilian citrus fruit. We begin with a fresh appetizer which brings some of the most famous and delicious products from the island to the table: seafood salad and boiled octopus.

For the main course, she serves a 'timballino' with sardines and wild fennel, then Sicilian 'annelletti', a small ring-shaped type of pasta, which is a staple of Palermo's traditional cuisine. We continue our journey through Sicily's flavors with a swordfish roll accompanied by salty 'sarde a beccafico' sardines, as well as a side dish of stuffed mushrooms.

To finish, we have a delicacy from the Sicilian confectionery tradition which has become world-famous: the Sicilian Cannolo, a fried pastry tube filled with ricotta cheese, accompanied by little almond pastries and seasonal fruit. 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."
