“Born from a dream of love and a thought of beauty”: this is how Giovanni Pascoli defined Pienza, a town hidden deep in the Val d'Orcia that Pope Pio II transformed from a medieval hamlet to a pearl of the Renaissance in XV century.

At Angela's table, our lovely Cesarina, you can admire an enchanting panorama, whilst tasting the finest Tuscan cuisine. These flavoursome recipes are of humble origins, and Angela prepares them with love using freshly-picked produce from her own garden.

Cesarine offers bespoke gastronomic experiences; to taste traditional Italian food in good company and idyllic locations: historic buildings, antique villas, houses secluded by nature, terraces with breathtaking views. Cesarine’s hand-selected locations are some of the most beautiful private homes in all of Italy.

If you are passionate to explore the authentic flavours of traditional Italian cuisine and dine in elegant homes with local experts, this is the experience for you.

Cesarine supports Banco Alimentare, Italy's national food bank. By purchasing this experience, you will help Banco Alimentare to collect and distribute vital food to charities that support Italians in need. Cesarine will donate 1.00 euro for each reservation.
