“Priced for locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Forget about how the inside looks, and the fact that there is a road to cross to the outside sitting (the only place to eat) food is awesome and very cheap, and on a lovely drive

“A Gastronomic oasis in the middle of nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were introduced to this restaurant by our Villa Falchi Host, Vieri. We were due in late and he booked us in there for dinner at around 10pm. There was no English spoken so when ordering 2 wines, specify glasses not bottles (the girls found it amusing and drank the 2 bottles anyway). The meal was outstanding local fare and the atmosphere truly amazing. we liked it so much we went back again during our 1 week stay. If your in the summer months ring and book a table outside its worth it.

“Casual, friendly and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We ate at L-astronave twice during our one week stay at Villa Falchi. On our first day in Italy, the owner accommodated us with a late lunch (although I do not think they were open for business). We were very jet lagged and appreciative for the hospitality. We also purchased some wine to take to the Villa.
Our second meal was dinner after a long day in Florence. Sadly, we were not able to get a table outside (as it was fully booked) but the food was excellent and the atmosphere was fun. The best taglietelle with tomato sauce ever (almost a rose really).

“L'astronave - Delightful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Whilst staying at ATG's Pieve a Castello, just minutes from L'astronave, we visited this enjoyable and family-friendly restaurant on a warm Sunday evening where we found happy Moms, Dads, children, Uncles, Aunts and Grandparents etc. enjoying the superb food at this truly fun restaurant. They offer both inside and outside dining and the pleasant charming waiters and staff add to the feel that this is the place to be! Superb pastas (just how do they make that tomato sauce?!), delicious salads and excellent meat dishes are created in the cavernous kitchen, which is a must to visit - magic is created there! Scorgiano, Monteriggioni, Italy.
