Sunday lunch, and the restaurant is hosting a large (30 people) of tourists. Service consequently feels a bit rushed. Menu is limited, but interesting, and two additional specials are proposed. A selection of cheese items is a bonus, and contains welcome alternatives to the ubiquitous pecorino. The patio is a pleasant place to be, although a bit windy. The octopus starter is served warm on a piece of bread, in a tomato sauce and w greens. Tasty, if a touch too salty. Three types of bread are served in a paper bag. A plus, since Tuscan bread tends to be uniformly tasteless. My main consists of two chunks of pork, I can't quite identify the cut, but the meat (cooked sous-vide) is moist and fatty in a good way. Served w peas that still have a little crunch. There is also a mustard sauce which, although nice and unusual, could use a note of acidity to balance the sweetness. All in all, a very satisfying main, and the star of my meal. The choice of desserts is less ambitious. I have a sorbet. Above average, but monochrome. Could use mint leaves, or a few different flavors. All in all a good meal, and at around 30 euro (wine excluded), a fair to good value.

Futura Osteria is a delightful local restaurant tucked away in Abbadia a Isola. We went there twice during our stay at Borgo Stomennano, once with a small group of friends, the second time taking over the whole place with our wedding party. The food is beautifully cooked, bringing together a modern spirit that contrasts nicely with the ancient Tuscan countryside and fabulous local ingredients. They could not have been more helpful… the service was impeccable. lt was a great place to finish our wedding weekend off with our closest family and friends. Thanks Samuele.

We are staying at the Castel di Bigozzi in Strove and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It's a little hard to find in Abbadia a Isola, just down the hill from the local Coop and across the street from a gas station and bar. Park your car in the big parking lot and walk down the sidewalk to the old village. Walk into the small plaza, facing the church, turn to your left and down the steps. There are 2 restaurants there.
Futura opens at 7:30 p.m. Wonderful fresh garden salad! We had tortellina and it was excellent. Venta is most accommodating and speaks some English. Reasonably priced and the quality was excellent.
Not many restaurants around but this is a keeper!

Discovered this hidden gem tucked away inside the small village of Abbadia Isola just a few minutes from Monteriggioni. Love surprises and just loved the food and service here. The butter and sage tortellini was delicious. Restaurant was warm & cozy and staff very friendly. Perfect end to a perfect day!
