My husband and I stayed in an Airbnb in the village of Lecchi. The restaurant was right down the road from us. We took the cooking class from Simone and it was outstanding! He met us with a warm smile and made us a cappuccino before we started. After coffee, we put on our aprons and got to work. We... More

My husband and I took the cooking class given by Simone, the chef/owner of Malborghetto. This was by far the highlight of our (thus far) one week trip in Italy. Simone was delightful, so friendly and accommodating from the calls I made ahead inquiring if he could accommodate our gluten and dairy allergies all the way to spending much more... More

Eight friends met for a first night's dinner in Tuscany at this nearby restaurant, in Lecchi. It was a very nice evening and the restaurant was friendly, the food good and the setting very pleasant. One criticism was that the menu was almost impossible to read...the place had very dim lighting and we had to continually ask the stuff what... More

We were suggested to go to have lunch in this restaurant. I would describe this place as a cozy traditional, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The owner, who is also the chef, did a wonderful job preparing our meal. He was very attentive to details. Everything was delicious and authentic! I will definitely go back and would refer this restaurant to... More

My family and I visited from New York and took our first cooking class. I have to tell you that the experience here blew my mind. I have never enjoyed 6 hours in a kitchen more. Simone, the head chef/owner, made the day. He was more knowledgeable about food than anyone I have ever met and he was outgoing, friendly,... More

We followed up our best meal in Tuscany the following day with a fun and very involving cooking class at this great restaurant in the little town of Lecchi. Class is limited to small groups so there is a lot of individual participation. Chef Simone explains the science of cooking with good humor and patience. Three hours of class followed... More

My boss recommended I sign up for Ristorante Malborghetto cooking class, he had done it during his visit in Italy and he highly recommended it. The location was a little out of our way from where we were staying in Florence but it was well worth the travel. The class is a small group setting, which is great because you... More

I've eaten at a numerous amounts of starred- restaurants and it's not often I get really excited about restaurants any more. It needs to be special.

After a 2 week stay in Cavriglia - 30 minutes away - we chose Malborghetto for dinner on our last night in town. The ristorante was recommended by our hosts as "the very best ristorante in the area". They weren't kidding!! The place is very small and quaint. Tastefully decorated. And we were personally greeted and made to feel welcome... More
