When visiting the region of Chianti, Malborghetto is always the very first and last restaurant I choose to experience. The food is truly authentic and prepared wonderfully by Chef Simone.
Always a pleasurable experience.

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.

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.

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.
