As we were walking to Sveva's home for our dining experience, I admit to some trepidation. This was immediately vanquished by Sveva's warm hello and easy going manner. We felt immediately welcome into her fascinating, typically Roman apartment. By partaking in the cooking experience, sharing wonderful banter, cracking open a bottle of wine, eating her AMAZINGLY simple, flavorful, traditional and light cuisine, we truly got to understand the Roman essence. This night was the highlight of our time in Rome, an unforgettable evening. Grazie Sveva!!!!

Sveva was a great hostess and very good at teaching me and my husband how traditional tiramisu, bruschetta and pasta is made. I recommend her to anyone visiting the Rome area. We had a wonderful time making and eating the wonderful food.

My husband and I went to Giulia's home in Rome for lunch. It was really great to see an Italian home chef at work. Giulia doesn't speak English so her charming niece, Patrizia, translated for us, then we all ate together. Giulia made potato fritatta, deep fried pizza, lemon chicken, pasta, and an egg dish that I can't remember the name of, capped off with three kinds of cake and homemade limoncello. There was also free-flowing wine. Everything was absolutely delicious. I think you have the choice of assisting with the meal preparation or just watching. We chose to just watch, but either way, I highly recommend this activity. Thanks to Giulia and Patrizia for a memorable day.

Best experience in Venice! Barbara - thank you again for a wonderful evening. We chose to try Le Cesarine because we wanted to learn how Venetians live, and enjoy some great food. We accomplished both! Barbara was a welcoming host. We met at her local neighborhood bar, enjoying an apertif before making the short walk to her home where we met Claudio, also a friendly and welcoming person. Course after course, she made dishes we will never forget - creamy risotto, inky squid, a beautiful melon dessert among others. Best of all was the easy conversation and laughter. I would recommend this as a must do in Venice!

We are a family of four who stayed in Venice over Christmas 2018. As we normally spend Christmas day with family, we decided to find a new family to have lunch with. So we booked the La Cesarine experience for December 25th with high hopes and no expections. We were very pleasantly surprised, and it turned out to be a highlight of our entire trip.

The experience we booked was 'lunch' experience for 3 hours. La Cesarine arranges the meeting point and time by email. Our host met us at a nearby piazza, which turned out to be a smart idea as we probably would not have been able to find the apartment, as it is located on a somewhat private campo (small square).

The apartment was warm and comfortable and our hosts had a beautifully set dining table ready for us. Our hosts both spoke English very well, and as it turns out, we had much in common and lots to talk about. Lunch started with an excellent local wine and a salad the likes of which I probably will never be able to duplicate and was simply outstanding, followed by a pasta course with sides of meatballs and vegetables. Everything was home made and excellent. Dessert was local panettone. We were, in the end, very full and very happy. We received La Cesarine aprons for the kids as gifts.

Our hosts were very friendly and gracious for spending their Christmas lunch with us. The hit of the day was their pet cat who was gentle and kept the kids occupied while we adults had time to talk.

I would highly recommend this experience if you are looking to connect with local folks in the city you are visiting in a way that would otherwise be largely impossible. One thing to be aware of is that the La Cesarine web site could be a bit more clear about a cooking experience versus a what we had, which is a dining experience (in other words, like being invited to someone's house for lunch or dinner). I would not hesitate to try La Cesarine again on our next adventure to Italy.

Elisabetta was warm and welcoming, picked us up at the train station when I called to clarify the directions and then took us back at the end of the evening. Her husband didn’t speak English, we were still able to communicate a little with him, would have lived to speak Italian so we could have understood more as he was charming and funny. Dinner was 4 courses and wine, lovely evening, highly recommend!

This is country wide in Italy and if you have the chance I would definitely recommend this! We were staying in Sorrento and had the best experience of our trip with Rosa! Her lovely niece was there to translate. The food and wine were both amazing. What a wonderful experience it was for all 4 of us. I would love to do this again. Met awesome people, learned new cooking techniques and ate amazing food.

The four us dined in Cosimo’s home with his lovely wife, cousin Massimo and his lovely wife. The dinner was absolutely amazing and included the following: Rustic antipasti from Cartelli Romani, Penne all’arrabbiata with Celina olives, meatballs in citrus infused sauce, zucchini with mint and Ricotta and black cherry tart! Cosimo and his family made all of us feel at home and shared many family stories with us. I would highly recommend in participating in these events again as you really do learn about the country from their eyes and not through a restaurant.
