Your menu

    If you would like to have an authentic taste of Milan, you can't miss out on Ossobuco and saffron risotto.

    The origins of Risotto are lost in legend. Some claim that it was invented by the cook of a noble Sicilian family that moved to Milan; the cook could not find the ingredients to make rice arancini and she decided to prepare rice flavoured with saffron. Others say that this dish comes from the kosher medieval tradition, brought to Milan by Jewish Sicilian merchants.

    What we can be sure of is that risotto is always accompanied with the traditional Ossobuco, cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth. It's a winning combination that is one of the city's emblems.

    Where to start with how fantastic this experience was for my friends and I?! From the second we entered Nicoletta & Fabio's lovely home, we felt like part of the family and knew we were in for a special evening. The food was out of this world real Italian delights, the conversation fantastic and fascinating. It was the perfect way to spend an evening

    Nicoletta e Fabio
    Cesarina from 2018Location: Milan    Languages: Italian, English, German, Portuguese

    The Milanese Cesarini couple Nicoletta and Fabio reinterpret the culinary traditions of their regions of origin: Emilia Romagna and Lazio. Indomitable travelers and lovers of their own home, both journalists and cooking enthusiasts, this solid Milanese couple toils together over the stovetop, “even taking the risk of having an argument.”

    Nicoletta and Fabio’s kitchen translates culinary influences from the regions of their family members into”Milanese.” In their beautiful home, food becomes a joyous trail that embraces diners sitting around Nicoletta’s elegantly set table, where you can admire the beautiful embroidered tablecloths that the Cesarina has inherited from her family.
