Fabulous sandwich!

I got the pork sandwich, which was just meat on a bun with some juice. Despite being so simple, it was absolutely delicious! I thought I could not eat half of a sandwich that big but ate every morsel. For a quick and inexpensive meal, this place is not to be missed. And it is only a few minute... read more

Three of us ate lunch here, which is located inside a market selling all types of food, adjacent to Florence's Leather Market. Be prepared to know what you want to order when you get waited on. It is a BUSY place! Very reasonable prices, cash only. Not much, if any, English spoken here. I had a good Greek salad; my... More

After reading the raves about this place, we decided to try it ourselves. We ordered manzo bollito (boiled beef) and lampredotto (boiled beef stomach) in piatto (plate), not with breadroll (panino). They were served with 2 slices of bread, red chilli sauce and green sauce. Warning, the red chilli sauce is not for the faint-hearted, it was extremely hot. The... More

We went for a weekday lunch and the queue for the stall was pretty long - takes about 15 to 20 minutes for queuing and ordering. We ordered a plate of pork with bread as well a plate of stewed beef with bread. We loved the stewed beef - it was juicy and soft and very flavorful! Love the spicy... More

We discovered this place during a tour, our guide, a native of Florence, raved about it so the next day we returned. The line was very long, always a good sign. My husband meant to order the lamprodotto (4th stomach of a cow), but he speaks NO italian and they speak pretty limited English, so the order got lost in... More

Chopped 4th stomach of the cow but don't let this turn you off. Typical Florentine fare, 3.50 Euro for large panino, bread delicious and crispy. Get the green sauce (red is spicy, if you want). Takeaway--get a lot of napkins. The other really good lampredotto is in the small piazza of Porta Romana--a little beyond the main Boboli Garden entrance... More

It is the sister outlet to Alla Vecchia Bettola which is an excellent traditional restaurant. This is a stall in a food hall with limited seating. You could do a takeaway. Their crostini is the same as their restaurant's which was absolutely delicious. I had their stewed broccoli with a piece of bread. It was spot on. My partner had... More

Nerbone restaurant is inside Grand Central Market building and you can order finger food or dishes as you prefer and enjoy in front of order place on small stages with tables. You will find only local food very tasty and cheaper than normal restaurant, really good for... More

Inside Mercatto Centrale there is a lot of restaurants, however, if you are looking for something good and good prices, this is the place!
