Your experience

    We are Maria Elena and Nicola, and our passion for hospitality drives us to welcome our guests to our home, where we offer traditional La Spezia dishes. We will guide you in the preparation of dishes that reflect the recipes of older generations. Nicola draws inspiration from his grandparents, who were the owners of the old La Spezia tavern "Da Caran." We will begin with a welcome drink by the pool, followed by the appetizer, and then move to the table under the patio in our garden. We will prepare fried squash blossoms, crostini with anchovies in Monterosso oil, potato gnocchi with pesto prepared directly in front of you, mixed vegetables from the garden stuffed Ligurian style, and to finish, you cannot miss the classic tiramisu. We are waiting for you!

    This was one of our very favorite experiences on our recent vacation in Italy. We are a family of 5 (children are 16, 13, and 9) and we all loved the food, the setting, the hospitality, and conversation. Maria Elena and her husband were the best hosts. We loved sitting in their outdoor kitchen and learning about their culture. Maria Elena is an excellent cook. Our kids devoured her anchovies, fried squash blossoms, and homemade pasta. I have already recommended this experience to several friends.

    Cesarina from 2020Location: Vezzano Ligure    Languages: Italian and English
    I'm Cesarina Maria Elena, and together with my husband Nicola and our son Pietro, we run a home restaurant in our countryside house just a few kilometers from the city. My passion for cooking started as a child when my friends and I would cook desserts such as meringues and jam tarts to enjoy at picnic-style snack times. I began this venture to fully appreciate our home, our traditions, and our great love for our land and hospitality.
