This place was fabulous. So fabulous be went back more than once. Their wine was perfect the food made to perfection. We had this appetizer that had julienne zucchini, and carrots wrapped around I think shrimp, dipped in a tempura type batter and lightly fried. Was fabulous. Their roasted chicken the best but this pasta dishes steal the show. Our waiter was just adorable. He and another waiter just out did themselves. They made us feel like locals.

Absolutely outstanding! The truffle tortelli was amazing. The stuffed rabbit was perfect, stuffed with potatoes, olives, and herbs. The staff was very helpful with pairing the correct wine selection, and even gave us samples at no extra charge. Lemon tiramisu cake was delicious. A wonderful touch was the outstanding jazz music that started at 9, with a great vocalist and saxophonist. Do yourself a favor and experience this truly terrific place.

Without hesitation, this was the highlight restaurant of our 2 week holiday in Italy and France. In a town filled with excellent restaurants and service, Il Malandrino was the best. We had dinner on two occasions and had to restrain ourselves from 3 nights in a row. The food was sensational on both occasions and in my husband's words was the best food he'd ever had. Some really good and well priced wines too. And then there is Riccardo and his team - wonderful, knowledgeable, so kind and generous. The quality of food, service and atmosphere is unsurpassed and we very much look forward to returning soon.

Visited on latest trip. What a great place to eat. The food as always was excellent and the staff attentive and good fun with a well drilled patter and enthusiasm for the food. Serve my favourite sangiovese Paterno by Trappolini all round brilliant

We had a surprisingly delicious Italian dinner in this jazzy restaurant! Leaving the more touristy spots and streets a bit beside, we came across the cosy terrace of il Malandrino. And no regrets at all! Nice wine, a surprising amuse, tasty dishes and very friendly staff! Our 4 year old enjoyed the typical Italian kindness towards children, they even brought him some toys to play! We had the special of the day, a spaghetti with cod, zucchini, mint and lemon, our son the spaghetti sea fruits. A shame it's an hour drive from our vacation home.
