Many guidebooks suggest this little shop in the central market in the ground floor at a corner. We just tried the stomach in bun and have no idea how the beef tastes. The sauce (one green and a spicy red) is so matching though the sauce with chili is hotter than I expect. With seats available... read more

My wife found this in the Florentine Mercato Centrale. We got beef and porchetta rolls. Just heavenly. My wife went back for more! Wine was very decent as well.

It really does seem as though the locals do eat here. As well as a swathe of tourists of course. Legit grub, couldn't ask for much more.

Florence offers many great places for food and drink. Nerbone is one of the the best if you want to eat quick authentic food in Florence. Great prices for an amazing quality ! Some of the items to quick tough !! The location is in the old market and it's such a great experience to eat there.

Loved eating with the locals and local foods. Spent only less than 20 Euros for five bowls of hearty pasta which fed four of us. Best risotto in Italy so far.

Actual place the locals eat Inside the central market (kind of like the La Boqueria in Barcelona) Only opens for lunch (no dinner) No English menu, you basically see what others order Price very reasonable Must try

In my humble opinion, the porchetta sandwich at da Nerbone is probably the world's best - it's worth visiting Florence just for this sandwich.

Everything was yummy from start to finish. Started with pasta followed by their tripe and finished with roast beef. All very cheaply priced but no compromise on the quality. Excellent wine to accompany the meal too. Just eat here and don't bother heading up to the first floor.

The tripes are very tender, 3.50 euro for a big tripe sandwich, the guy put some kind of spicy spread on the bun then heaped tripes onto the bun. Cheap but good eat in the Central Market.
