Le Cesarine

Under the Cupolone

Roma / Lazio

La Cesarina

Angela is a journalist on one of Rome’s main papers. Whenever she has a spare moment she dedicates herself to cooking, her all-time great passion. “I began cooking as a girl, when I would go on holidays with my friends - she explains - I would prepare quick pastas with fresh tomatoes and then little by little I reached more elaborate dishes. Cooking for others makes me happy”. This passion for cooking comes straight form the heart, passed down from mother to daughter for generations.

Angela has also become a sommelier “Wine and food must get along, and they are the strongpoints of my cooking.” Her cooking is inspired by the typical flavours of roman cuisine, particularly tied to cereals and popular flavours.

The secret of the Cesarina
Wine and food must get along, and they are the strongpoints of my cooking. That is why I became a sommelier.


  • Classic bruschetta
  • Pasta and lentils
  • Semolina roman gnocchi
  • Roman artichokes
  • Ricotta cake

Refined selection of local wines


Angela guides us along the discovery of the most authentic and popular capitoline cuisine. It's only right to begin with the classic bruschetta, made with slices of homemade lariano bread, particularly well known in the area of the Castelli Romani area of Rome, and seasoned with pink garlic, salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil.

To follow, another traditional dish from the eternal city. A delicious pasta with lentils is served. The lentils are cultivated on the Lazio Apennines, first boiled and then cooked with garlic, pepper and tomatoes, resulting in a hearty sauce. For the second course, our Cesarina makes us gnocchi 'alla romana', a classic capitoline Thursday dish made with semolina and egg yolk, accompanied by artichokes prepared following the traditional recipe.

To finish, a delicious ricotta cake. The homemade shortcut pastry meets an irresistable filling of ricotta, honey and cinnamon, for a light and unforgettable dessert.

"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."
