Cheap and delicious

My friend and I just happened upon this place in the Mercato Centrale and grabbed some lunch. We had two plates of pasta al ragu, a caprese salad, and two waters which cost us 14 euro all together--and it was way too much food. The ragu was really good, and the caprese was super fresh.

Don't expect to be fawned over as a tourist but the food and wait are worth it. The beef-czar has his expectation. Be sure to ask for your Bolito roll to be dipped in the sauce before serving. Delicious!!

You really can't beat this place for simple delicious traditional fare. We both had the pasta bolognese/rage which was one of the best we'd eaten. 8 euros for two people.

We found this place based on a recommendation from a wine tasting dinner we had the night before. The host knew we were from Kansas City and suggested we try this place for the meats. We were not disappointed. He suggested that we get there before 11:30 to beat the crowds and that's the one piece of advice i'd give.... More

Great value write in the city centre - amazing pastas (the pesto one was particularly good), inexpensive but good house red, awesome spicy beef sanwiches and quick service. Despite the crowd, the servers were patient and helpful. Only downside is that you may have to scrounge for a place to eat at lunch time (and it can get hot), but... More

You can't go wrong grabbing a boiled beef sandwich. There is an amazing juice to dip it in, and the bread is also delicious. Easy to grab a sandwich and go.

This place is inside the Mercato Centrale, so is cheap, fast and delicious!! I ate a rib sandwich, and it was scrumptious!! You can have some house wine which is also cheap and tasty! I spent like 8€ at most for all!

The panini (beef stomach and boiled beef) were reasonably priced (compared with other panini around the area). Tasted good with generous portion of beef. Recommended for meat lovers. Bought salad and house wine, too. Simple lunch.

Awesome place for a cheap and an amazing lunch at the Central Market. Really friendly staff understood my broken Italian and it had a fun atmosphere. They have pasta, risotto, and meats. Definitely recommend trying it out.
