Le Cesarine

A warm welcome to the Eternal City

Roma / Lazio

La Cesarina

Claudia takes us on a journey of discovery through the many sides of Roman cuisine, from the Jewish influence to the countryside traditions that have shaped the city’s flavours and typical dishes. Despite having a busy career as an accountant, Claudia has always made an effort to dedicate her spare time to honing her cooking skills, and writes a fantastic cooking blog to share her ideas with the world. 

Her home is in the green and leafy suburbs of Rome, but within easy reach of the historical centre. She is lucky enough to have a large terrace, which is perfect for hosting guests when the weather is nice surrounded by mediterranean plants and a stunning view.

The secret of the Cesarina


  • Anchovy and romanesco broccoli pie 
  • Bucatini alla vitorchianese (tomato adn sausage sauce with fennel seeds and pecorino cheese)
  • Roast veal with spinach (or other seasonal vegetable)
  • Endives with tomato and fennel seeds
  • Mostaccioli (chocolate-glazed biscuits) with crème pâtissière

Refined selection of local wines


Our Taste Experience begins with a classic Roman starter, an anchovy and romanesco broccoli pie, which brings together the city’s celebrated produce.

For the first course, Claudia opts for another classic of her regional cuisine: bucatini basta ‘alla vitorchianese’. This pasta is similar to spaghetti but with a hollow middle, and holds the sausage and tomato sauce beautifully, which is enriched by fennel seeds and pecorino cheese. Next, we have an inviting dish of roast veal, stuffed with seasonal vegetables. The side dish is a symbol of Jewish-Roman cuisine, salted endives with fennel seeds and tomato. This is all accompanied by a lovely red wine from the local area, which adds a layer of intensity to the Taste Experience. 

To finish, we have ‘mostaccioli’, which are candied fruit and honey biscuits glazed with chocolate, accompanied by a sumptuous crème pâtissière.

Cesarina's Reviews

Un amico mi ha consigliato di andare a cena da Cesarina Claudia per fare un’esperienza diversa dal solito ristorante. Aveva ragione, l’atmosfera e la sua ospitalità hanno fatto la differenza, oltre ovviamente all’ottimo menù.

"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."
