Had the tripe sandwhich here and was a bit underwhelmed. Most of the tripey flavour was cooked out of it, and there was not enough tripe in the sandwich either.

This is a really authentic place. Family run, traditional local, focusing on 2-3 dishes. You either love it or hate it. It's not about the service for sure! But about the great food!

The beef stew is delicious and tender, the porchetta panini is nice, however, the porchetta is quite salty, which may not be to everyone's tastes. It was quite hard to get a seat, especially because Nerbone is so popular and there was a queue to order.

On a day trip to Florence, my chef husband was eager to go to the Mercato Centrale and while there we enjoyed a simple lunch at Nerbone (a historic spot). Known for their paninis, we ordered a panino con lampredotto (lining of the cow stomach) and panino con bollito (boiled beef). The panino con lampredotto had a slight bite to... More

I was disappointed from the overwhelming positive reviews from this site. Got the two famous paninos and split with my mom. It was my first time having tripe in general, and I was expecting greatness since it's a Florentine specialty. It was subpar and very bland in flavor compared to the panino bollito. I preferred the texture of the bollito,... More

We knew we would have a fabulous meal at Nerbone when we saw the long queue and the busy staff at the counter. We had the lampradotto and trippa, with a 1/4 of chianti. A delicious and simple meal. A must-do for tripe fans like us.

I was wondering around the markets in awe of the wonderful fresh produce and had been told to eat upstairs, when I went upstairs it felt like a generic cold food court so I headed back down to the heart of things and just joined the longest queue I found - it was for Da Nerbone. I don't know what... More

patronized on a Saturday, despite the long q, service was efficient n quick. Chosen the pork sandwich instead of the famous selections. The pork was flavourful but not overpowering. The meat wasn't dry but it would be perfect if it's more juicy. The bun was v tough though

Went here for lunch after seeing great reviews on tripadvisor. Not quite knowing exactly what 'bollito' was, my boyfriend and I decided to split a pork 'panino' with the red chilli sauce and a salad. However, the sandwich was so good that we sheepishly went back up for another and even grabbed one the next day for lunch before getting... More

My husband and I happened upon this place in the Mercato and were beyond happy with our food. We shared a pasta and a pork sandwich. I was surprised when I came back from shopping to see the hubs had ordered a pork sandwich, I guess to me it didn't really stand out as something to order in Italy. And... More
