Get that sandwich just the way they make it!!!

That is what my friend stressed I do. Sauces and all! Don't substitute, don't change anything. This spot is located in the lower level of the market and once you get there its full of people. Go for lunch because we were told they close at 230pm ish. We got the Lampadario. It was juicy and washed... read more

The Tour agency messed up our cooking tour! We went to the Mercato Centrale nonetheless to see what we had missed. We could not have been more pleased! We found Nerbone Due SAS on July 6, 2015. The stand is manned by males who take your order and slice the meats in front of you. All the while talking and... More

The sauce really made the beef sandwich delicious. Added to the really worthwhile price of €3.50 per sandwich this place really deserves 4 stars. Service was a bit rough though.

One of the shop owners in Central Market recommended Nerbone for lunch. It was quite busy so we decided to queue up and give it a try. We ordered a salad and a veg pasta with 2 glasses of their house wine. I couldn't believe my ears when he said my bill was just 12 Euros. The food was delicious.... More

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. Seating was hot and cramped,... More

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
