Ora d'Aria Review

The name means "Hour of Air" and refers to the time of day when prisoners were let outside for fresh air—alluding to the fact that this gem was originally located across the street from what was once the old prison. In the kitchen, gifted young chef Marco Stabile turns out exquisite Tuscan classics as well as more fanciful dishes, which are as beautiful as they are delicious; intrepid diners will be vastly rewarded for ordering the tortellini farciti con piccione (stuffed with pigeon) if it's on the day's menu. Two tasting menus give Stabile even greater opportunity to shine, and the carefully culled wine list has something to please every palate. Do not miss his tiramisu espresso—something halfway between a dessert and a coffee. In fact, if you're a serious gourmand, do not miss this place. (If the prices seem daunting, the lunch menu is significantly less expensive than the dinner.)

    How reliable the GPS is in Tuscany? Do I really need a detailed local map or GPS will be good enough?
    Thanks for your help. Read more
