Le Cesarine

Traditional sweets

Vietri S/M / Campania

La Cesarina

Overlooking a strip of sea dominated by San Liberatore and Mount Falerio, Vietri sul Mare is the place where we meet our Cesarina Annamaria, for whom “cooking is a pleasure to be rediscovered every day."

Whether it is to find the most delicious bread, the freshest fish or finest vegetables, food for Annamaria is the means to enjoy all that nature has to offer. Her local culture overflowing with creativity, as can be seen in the traditional decorations on ceramics present in Vietri since the Middle Ages, now famous and imitated all over the world.

The secret of the Cesarina
Cooking is a pleasure to be rediscovered every day


  • Eggplant meatballs
  • Seafood vermicelli
  • Sea bass “with seawater”
  • Potatoes with a squeeze of lemon
  • Lemon syrup sponge dessert

Refined selection of local wines


Annamaria begins her Taste Experience with delicious eggplant meatballs, proudly adding her region's staple vegetable with delicious results. As per ancient local culinary tradition, she then serves 'vermicelli ai frutti di mare', or seafood vermicelli, which combines fine pasta with the wealth of the Tyrrhenian Sea: mussels, clams, cuttlefish, squid and prawns, together with tomato, parsley and a clove of garlic.

From the sea in front of her own home, our Cesarina also “catches” sea bass, prepared with so-called “sea water”, meaning that the fish is cooked 'straight out of the sea', since Annamaria buys it fresh from the noisy stalls of the local fish market. This simple dish is infused with layers of flavour. The side dish of potatoes is given a delicious citrus kick with one of the Amalfi Coast's most famous products, the "sfusato amalfitano" lemon, which is absolutely perfect with fish. 

Luckily, Annamaria opts for lemon in her dessert, too, with an irresistably moist syrup sponge with a lemon glaze.

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."
