Le Cesarine


  • Sarde in Saor (fried fresh sardine fillets marinated in softly cooked white onions, usually with vinegar, raisins and pine nuts.)
  • Bigoli in Salsa (Venetian pasta dish made with thick whole-wheat pasta, onion, and salt-cured fish) 
  • Gilthead bream with cherry tomatoes
  • Patate ubriache - literally: "drunk potatoes" (thinly sliced potatoes and onions in a red wine sauce)
  • Baicoli prepared with white wine

Refined selection of local wines


This Taste Experience through the Serenissima’s canals begins with a traditional Venetian classic. Sardines in 'saor' are brought to the table, which are served in onions caramellised with vinegar. This meeting of refined flavors is a perfect start.

We continue with bigoli in sauce, a first course which combines bigoli, (a pasta similar to thick spaghetti) served with a simple but intensely flavoured sauce of anchovies and onions. Fish comes back in the second course: Patrizia offers us sea bream 'alla malamocchina' with cherry tomatoes. The fish is stuffed with carrots, basil, garlic and a squeeze of lemon. This delicacy is accompanied by 'drunk potatoes', which are potatoes cooked in wine - the perfect side for fish dishes.

Last but not least, another great classic of Venetian cuisine. For dessert our Cesarina serves us baicoli al vino bianco, a kind of biscuit which dates back to the period of the maritime republic of la Serenissima.

Patrizia lives in a beautiful and timeless place. An enchanted city, which attracts millions of tourists every year and is known for its beauty all over the world. Above all, it is a land filled with art and culture, even from a gastronomic point of view.

Of course, we're talking about Venice, the city of a thousand canals. Our Cesarina welcomes us to the area of Saint Zaccaria, near the church of the same name, a magnificent renaissance building dating back to the 15th century. The main tourist attractions (piazza San Marco, la Basilica, il ponte dei Sospiri) are just a few hundred meters away and Patrizia’s home is also a great starting point for exploring vicoli del Castello, a less well known - but equally fascinating - area of Venice.

The secret of the Cesarina
My family is originally from Tuscany and Piedmont, but my heart is all for Venice’s canals.
