Description: DESCRIZIONE IN ITALIANO:Ritorno alle origini. Lo stretto rapporto di scambio iniziato tanti anni fa, tra la lentezza del borgo medievale e la vivacità della passione per il nostro lavoro, ci ha riportati ad essere presenza quotidiana nel nostro Ristorante. Siamo nuovamente pronti a trasmettere il grande amore che abbiamo per le materie prime, per i colori, i sapori e le fragranze della natura, nello stile e nell'accoglienza riservata all'interno di un ambiente esclusivo, pensato per solleticare le percezioni emotive. E' con questo spirito che saremo lieti di rinnovare il benvenuto agli amici di sempre, agli ospiti affezionati, ai viandanti di passaggio, ai viaggiatori più esigenti. Lo Staff di Dietro Le Quinte.ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:“Dietro Le Quinte” Restaurant, around San Gimignano, Siena and Florence...In the heart of the historic center in Colle di Val d'Elsa, we provide original and various dining areas where you will taste our proposals.

We ended our Thanksgiving Day in the bar here at the Ristorante Dietro le Quinte, and were treated to some delightful cocktails and some really crisp Proseco. The place was newly re-decorated and we enjoyed it's sparkling decor especially with the Christmas lights, trees, and Christmas figures all in white. As the only patrons, we were able to SKYPE using... More

We ended up here by accident. Initially set out for Sienna, but couldn't find anywhere to park so returned to Colle di Val D'Elsa as it had looked impressive when we drove past earlier. Took the lift up to the old town and this was the only restaurant that was open. Due to the time of year ate indoors and... More

When you walk around the back of this otherwise unimposing restaurant's entrance, it hits you - the stunning garden setting of the outdoor tables and the beautiful panoramic views across the valley below the town of Colle di Val d'Elsa. We arrived fairly early for supper and had a choice of tables for four, but sadly the best tables, under... More

I'm in Italy with great friends celebrating 25 years of knowing each other, exploring the epicurious delights of Tuscany. I can't remember the last time (or ever) leaving a restaurant and having one of my group purge himself for fear of poisoning himself from the meal he had at this place. The real estate has tremendous potential, only to have... More

We've been many times to this restaurant in the last decade, and we are holding a fidelity card from Dietro le Quinte. It was one of our favorite places in the region. The restaurant used to have excellent service, very good food and wine, and the location is gorgeous. Unfortunately, everything but the location changed. Now the service is poor,... More

We came by the terrace and sat down because the colours of it were so inviting and sunny on this cloudy day. We were served quickly and friendly and had two lovely pasta's. One with mussels and clams and the other one was pici with sausage and tomatoes. We appreciated the size of the portions. Not too big, not too... More

Stopped here for lunch on a hot day because the outdoor garden was beautiful. Unfortunately it is only open for dinner, so we dined outside in the square. The service was very good, not rushed. The asparagus strudle for the antipasti was very tasty and the plate nicely arranged with an endive salad. The first course of ravioli were well... More

Not sure why some of the reviews were less than flattering, we ate here twice on a recent visit and found it to be excellent. The first night we were caught in a thunderstorm so the garden was closed. We ate under the canopy as the lightening and rain came down, watching locals and tourists alike scurrying for cover in...

We visited the mediaeval part of Colle val D'Elsa to look up the famous glass specialist la Moleria. Looking for somewhere for a light lunch, we came across Milleluci with outside seating in the Piazza Canonica square. This is a sister operation to the rather grand Dietro Le Quinte restaurant in the gardens below. Two very tasty salads and a... More
