    Our evening with Cesarina Antonella was everything we hoped for and more. We received a warm welcome to her home. She truly went to great lengths to give us an authentic food experience, with each ingredient selected regionally- keeping with what people directly from Reggio Calabria would come to expect. There were so many dishes and courses we could not count. Everything was made by hand and was of exquisite taste. She even accommodated for my wife’s vegan vegetarian diet. Conversation was fun and we learned more about the city than we could have possibly gotten from a tour. This was truly a special night and one we will never forget!

    My friend and I booked a cooking class with Antonella and it was amazing. Not only is she very knowledgeable and excellent at engaging and including us in the cooking process, but her warmth and generosity was amazing. We cooked, we shared stories, we laughed, and we sat down and shared our meal together. It was definitely a family type experience, and one I will cherish for the remainder of my life.

    Incredible! Best cooking course I've ever done. Antonella and her family were very welcoming and provided my partner and I will an evening full of pasta and passion. She was very patient and a wonderful teacher. We opted for the course that focused on colouring pasta with natural dyes and I'm glad we did. It was very unique and creative, I never thought we cold make ravioli roses but we did. She truly went above and beyond to provide us with a memorable experience. The evening finished with the whole family and us sitting down, sharing stories, laughs and eating a pasta feast. Cannot recommend this experience enough. Nick and Elly from Australia.

    We had a fabulous experience with our Calabrian hosts for a 4 course dinner. We got to see momma make the food in front of us. Their hospitality was the best. We were treated like family. The food was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and appreciate our local family.

    This was an experience I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life! Antonella and her family were so beautiful and welcoming, I truly felt at home. I admire Antonella and her knowledge and passion for traditional Calabrian produce and recipes. It is an experience you cannot miss if visiting the wonderful Reggio Calabria. The food was incredible, the company was heartwarming and the experience in total - I cannot rate more highly. I’m not sure what else to say, other than thank you with all my heart again to Antonella for this experience. With love, Gabby from Australia!

    Cesarina from 2018Location: Reggio Calabria    Languages: Italian and English
    In the heart of the Mediterranean, in the deep south of Italy, there is a corner of light, sea and poetry. We are in Reggio Calabria, whose waterfront offers one of the most scenic and beautiful walks on the Italian peninsula. Here, you can inhale the scents of the sea, admire the unmistakable skyline of Etna and enjoy the sunset over the Strait of Messina.  Just a few steps away from the historical town center, we meet Antonella. Our Cesarina welcomes us into her cozy home that has a panoramic terrace overlooking the sea. At Antonella’s table, we can discover the typical dishes from the Calabrian tradition, which include strictly homemade pasta, such as maccheroni al ferretto. The colors and flavors come from both land and sea. There are cured meats accompanied by vegetable preserves, eggplant and other vegetables under oil and dried tomatoes. Finally, there are the desserts and liqueurs. Here, bergamot, with its unmistakable aroma, takes the spotlight, making it highly sought after.
