Fantastic!

Up in a mountain village, a peaceful place, a small restaurant with very, very nice waitors, very good food at a reasonable price. All the portions and all the wine were perfect.

My wife and I had the pleasure of having dinner at Malborghetto when we were in Chianti and also lunch as part of the cooking class we took with Simone (the chef and owner). The dinner was fantastic .... probably the best we've had in our trips over the last 3 years to Italy. Wonderful pastas and amazing steak. All... More

Wow, what an experience, not only did my daughter & I enjoy an excellent cookery course with Simone Muricci we were also provided with excellent knowledge & advice on various cooking techniques & wines from the local region to compliment each course. We enjoyed a further evening at Malborghetto to celebrate my partners birthday. Simone & his wife went out... More

A few words from me cannot do justice to the wonder that is Tuscany. Not to mention Ristorante Malborghetto in the village of Lecchi in Chianti will, however, be an omission on my part. With my wife and daughter we had two memorable dinners there in June. The place is just a completely happy convergence of delicious food, a small,... More

Marborghetto was recommended by our host. We did not have reservations but were happily welcomed in by the owner, who was charming and helpful. The food was amazing, even after three weeks of great meals. Excellent service and wine. Portion size was just right, and the dishes were traditional and delicious.

We had two outstanding meals at this establishment. It is located in the tiny, beautiful village of Lecchi in Chianti. Both times we sat in the outdoor patio which was just beautiful. The food is outstanding and the tiramisu is the best we have ever eaten. The chef also makes his own bread was just delicious. We searched Tuscany for... More

Great experience. Delicious and slightly different takes on Tuscan traditions, served with a warm smile. Enjoyed tortellini "nudi" and wild boar stew. Excellent desserts too. Located near the top of a mountain and off the beaten path. Would definitely go back again.

Beautiful setting in the garden, every course was amazing. You must have dinner here. Definitely sit outside. And try the lamb ribs!

This restaurant is a perfect example of why people like my wife and I, along with millions of others, return to Tuscany again and again. We had lunch here last week on a lovely sunny day in the shaded courtyard,it was perfect, there is no other way to describe it. The owner was really friendly and welcoming and the food... More

We have been here many times and it is my favorite. Chef Simone and staff are always so friendly and the menu is creative for Tuscan food. Especially good if you look for nice vegetarian. Must try the vegetable pie for appetizer (inside a Parmesan shell). The nudie ravioli is the best. So delicious. Also an excellent selection of wines.
