“Superb!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Being in Siracusa don't omit "The Backstage" if you're seafood lover. It is really Artfood! But be carefull: when you ask for glass of grappa after dinner they serve almost half a bottle glass (free!!!!)

“Best Italian restaurant we have experienced in our two week holiday in Sicily.”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We came here by recommendation of the hotel. The whole experience started from the warm welcome, through dinner where the chef came to check whether all was good, right up to the end of dinner where you get some nice Muscat wine of the house as a digestive.

Food was in one word AMAZING. The antipasti misto was a true delight, with 7 different seafood dishes.

Then the primi piati of the pasta Norma (aubergine) was enorm tasteful.

The secondi piati, which was fish in a crust of potatoe as well as fish with herbs baked in filo pastry was truly gorgeous.

As we liked it so much we reserved at the end of our meal for the following ad final night of our stay. Again, some amazing dishes and this will definitely be a restaurant we are looking forward to return to. The best Italian restaurant we had in Italy. Price wise also very reasonable.

“Simply WOW !!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

We have discovered Dietro le Quinte while walking through the streets of Ortygia, when on holiday from Malta.

We did not know what to expect but being welcomed in such a friendly way by Chef Massimiliano Vasile, and with a brief but detailed introduction to the menu and offering to prepare a selection of fish antipasti, we decided to leave our dinner in his hands. A wonderful decision it was as all courses including dessert were lovely.
This made us return for a second time and again all was immpecible, with everything to praise, from the hospitality of the Manage to the one of the Chef.

A big welldone, and we look forward to visit you in the future.

“Amazing Dinner”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

My family visited Ortigia for 6 days in May and one evening we were walking around looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled into Dietro le Quinte Ristorante! We weren't sure what to expect as we were the only ones in the restaurant around 8:30 on a weekend night but by the time we finished our meal the entire place was full and I could see why! My husband had the seafood antipasta for dinner, my parents both had pasta with pomodoro sauce and I had the pasta alla norma (my favorite) and it was the best I have ever had! Our meal was so great that we ended up going back a second time.

“Another great accidental find.”
Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Walking around Siracusa at lunchtime we came across this restaurant opposite the old Theatre that is being renovated. We don't speak much Italian but the waiter spoke reasonable English. We chose an Antipsta selection and were presented wiyh dish after dish of fantastic tasting delicacies. These included prawns, tuna, sardine fritters, sea urchin, oyster clams etc. they did have a big selection of meat dishes as well! Some of the dishes were brought out by the chef himself who was very enthusiastic that we should enjoy his food. A fantastic meal finished off with the most amazing sweets. A must visit experience.
