If you appreciate the perfect placement of exquisite food on a spotless plate, impeccable service, a kitchen in full view so you can see white clad chefs in black toques then this is your place. If you prefer hearty food you would do best to go elsewhere. Fine art is never cheap nor is fine food: this place is expensive.

Dined here on the 08 September 2016 for r our 10th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious, exquisitely served and beautifully cooked. The restaurant is simply, but comfortably designed and the service is impeccable. The culinary experience was one of pure magic. Flawless!

Not to the level I would have expected. The bill got brought in a paper envelope and menus were not of quality paper or material. Food was bland e.g., (pappardelle ragu lumache) and the meat that we got brought cold. Service and the restaurant itself is excellent though.

We visited Ora d'Aria on a Saturday evening, we were lucky to be seated by the large kitchen window so we were able to appreciate in details the work of the 7 chefs, impeccably dressed, artists in a wonderfully organised and clean environment. The food was full of flavours, with an amazing opening - a modern version of the "crostino... More

We went there at lunch time and ordered the chef's choice of 5 courses. Two of them, the pasta dish (tortellini) and the desert, were very good, but the other three were quite disappointing. However the service was really attentive and simply nice, including the chef coming in person to say goodbye. I also liked that you can see inside... More

Marco Stabile makes his plates in style. As the Ferrari Trento DOC 2004 was poured and the little plate of beef mousse passed around, a great tasting event was unfolding. Plates: bruschetta in the form of eclairs, topped with white beans, bisque saucing; hand cut pasta, garlic and lavender saucing, twice cooked pidgeon, how juicy, how good, no cheese or... More

We ate the fish tasting menu with matched wines and found it incredibly good, and everything one could expect of a restaurant with 2 stars at least. We would love to move the restaurant to the UK so we could go more often. You will love it.

We went here for supper whilst stating in Florence. The menu options for the tasting menu are fish or meat. We chose the meat option and it was outstanding. Really well balanced flavours and combinations. The banana sandwich pudding was inspired. The wine list was huge and the sommelier was excellent with his suggestions. From the dining room you can...

Description
If you fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of Florence, take the plunge and book yourself a table at Ora d'Aria in the Via Ghibellina. Decorated in shades of vanilla, this elegant restaurant is a welcome escape from the tourist trail, and Head Chef Marco Stabile has created a menu which features the best culinary traditions from the region. Sit back and relax as dishes such as the spaghetti with cuttlefish drizzled with extra virgin olive oil; Piedmontese steak with garlic chips and panzella salad; and black cod with a Tuscan bean and onion salad give you an authentic taste of Tuscany in stylish surrounds. Ora d'Aria's impressive wine list features an excellent selection of Tuscan and French wines.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
