“Worst experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

The service was appalling. We were sent upstairs to an empty dining room as the maitre d' claimed that there was no available tables downstairs. She was rude and we regret that we ever stepped foot into this restaurant. It was the worst experience in Tuscany.

“DEFINITELY PUT ON YOUR LIST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We discovered this jewel a few years back and make it a "must" every year. Situated in the picturesque village of Lecchi in Chianti, we have had the pleasure of enjoying the warm welcome, the fresh produce and elegantly delicious meals. In addition, we have also partaken in numerous cooking schools with owner/chef Simone. Try the Truffle Gnocchi, its one of our favorites!
Part of being in Tuscany is the food and Malborghetto will not disappoint.

“One of our Favourites in Tuscany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

This small charming restaurant in the tiny village of Lecchi in Chianti pleasantly surprised us. Lecchi is the village we pick up our groceries in and we saw Malborghetto and thought we'd give it a try. The service was excellent, attentive and timely. The menu choices were numerous. The appetizers, first and second courses were excellent. The filet with truffles was cooked just as we liked and was high quality. My wife had a filet with chianti wine sauce and that was excellent as well. Also the gnocchi with truffles was amazing. Everything we ordered didn't disappoint. A good selection of wines was available on par with other tuscany restaurants. Malborghetto exceeded our expectations and turned out to be our favourite in Tuscany.

“Modern and very tasty.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This restaurant was in the village we were staying in, we went for lunch and enjoyed it so much we went for dinner as well.
The guys who run it are cheerful and attentive, service was excellent.
The picture is of gnocchi with truffles in a cheese basket.
The food is quite modern compared to some of the typical meals I had in Tuscany. Highly recommended. The owners clearly take a lot of pride in their business and it was a pleasure to eat there.
