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

We chose Val D'Elsa as a centre point for our week in Tuscany. Of those nights, we have returned to this restaurant 3 times. The food was amazing, definitely try the salmon. Janeta and Roberto made our experience here a great time to remember. We tried other restaurants but seemed to gravitate back here for both the service and food.... More

Many of the the reviews here are why we all should loath TripAdvisor. Criticising for paper tablecloths? Expecting something other than that which was on offer? I'm a restaurateur and hard to please. But the food was good; the setting lovely; the service caring, if rather stressed. It was worth the money. On that basis, difficult to give it less... More

Dear guest, we would like to thank you for your observation: we absolutely agree with you. The point is: who’s behind the negative reviews? Real disappointed customers, or envious competitors? Who’s know, anyway we go on and we really need healthy reviews like yours. Really appreciated, the Staff of Dietro le Quinte. More

I'm not sure why so many people didn't like this spot. I have been visiting this restaurant over the last 5 years and found out the management had changed but came anyway and gave it a shot. It is located in a place with an amazing view on ColleVal delsa. We started with a platter of meats and cheeses and... More

What a great pleasure to read your comment on our Restaurant! We are also happy that you appreciated the way we cook and prepare dishes, we are of the opinion that the taste should be exalted but not covered. We was also pleasant to exchange some views with you "London 757": speaking with you we found you are our "colleague"... More

This was the only bad thing in the entire town. I was desperately hungry and wanted to try some place different and we stumbled upon it. It was horrible. The waitress was rude, the food was horrible and it was expensive. Save your money and go to L Oste di Borgo at the other end of the old town

We are very sorry to read your comment about our restaurant. Generally we are always open to the judgment of our guest because we consider it will be useful to improve our services. In this case, even with our best effort, we could not find any appropriate response to Miss Julie T... even cause Dietro Le Quinte Restaurant... was closed... More
