A Sweet spot in Chianti

I never return to Chianti without a visit to Malborghetto .... and am never disappointed! Simone and Alesi make you feel as though you have entered their home with the attention of cherished friends. The food is always creative but authentic to the region of Chianti. Enjoy!

My daughter and I spent an October morning with Simone in his cooking class. It turned out to be the highlight of my two week trip to Italy. Simone provides a great deal of information in this hands-on class--both in cooking the food and then eating it with the paired wines for each course. Before this class, I had been... More

Excellent food, drink, service and atmosphere. There are many positive reviews posted and we concur. A new highlight this trip was three of our party of four participated in Simone's hands on cooking school and thoroughly enjoyed it. I showed up for lunch to participate in the fruits of their labor and Simone's company and commentary as the meal progressed.... More

We were quite pleased to have Simone's talent shared leading our cooking class to culinary delight. Four of us traveled thru the Chianti area -stayed in Gaiole, 10 minutes from Malborghetto. Two of us took Simone's class with the other two joining us for lunch- fruits of the labor. Simone clearly enjoys his passion for sharing food, wine, history. A... More

On our honeymoon in Italy we spent several days in the chianti region and choose to do a cooking class recommended by our hotel. The cooking class here was great. Simone is very knowledgable and we made the best tiramisu I have had. After preparing each course we would sit down to eat and Simone would pair with a wine.... More

Wonderful food, service, and prices - we will be back!! The panna cotta is different, but very enjoyable. Everything we ate (ravioli with pear, and the gnocchi with truffles, and the pici) was excellent.

Our group of 8 attended their cooking class. Not only was the food we prepared terrific and we had a lot of fun doing it, we learned so much about the science of cooking it was incredible. Simone is both knowlegeable and very entertaining. Then having been inside the kitchen we wanted to experience the dining experience itself as a... More

You shouldn't miss an opportunity to dine here. Simone loves what he does and it is apparent when the dishes come to your table. Fantastic presentation, fantastic food. I recommend the vegetable pie in parmes an bowl as a starter. The brown bread is great. In fact have never had a bad meal.
