The food is freshly prepared with a menu that changes daily. The constants are their delicious sandwiches. I love to watch the sandwich maker slice the "bolito" - boiled meat - for the sandwiches which are served on a Kaiser roll and garnished with red or green sauce or both. They also have lamprodotto (cow's stomach = tripe), very rare... More

We love markets and offal. Nerbone is definitely a must when you are in Florence. We loved seeing the locals as well as tourists line up to eat tripe, stomach, beef cheeks; all so delicious.

I'd seen this place on a travel show, but didn't know where it was until I stumbled across it in the Mercato Centrale. First thing I noticed was the line, the packed seating and all the little carafes of red wine. The clientele was a mix of young Italians and tourists. There was a man behind the counter cutting nice... More

Came here twice throughout our stays here in Florence. We had the Trippa, roast beef, risotto... Loves all of them esp the Trippa! Price is cheap compare to other restaurant or shops in Florence.

Everyone told me if you are in Florence you gotta try the tripe sandwich ! I tried it at the most famous place in Florence to get a tripe sandwich and it was bland, very very bland! Its like eating a sponge which has no flavour, luckily there is a chili sauce to make things just a little better !

Visit the Mercato Centrale and you will find this place to eat delicious tomato & cheese salad, pork sandwiches and tripe sandwiches (yes it is very delicious!). Mop up the juices with the bread; a great place for lunch.

I had read about Nerbone and then visited as part of a food tour of Florence where I was introduced to the Bollito. Amazing sandwich in an institution in Florence. I returned after the food tour and navigated the line alone and would have gone again if I had the time. I definitely recommend visiting this neat little stand in... More

Try the ribollita (kale and tuscan bread soup). Also need to try the lampredotto (tripe) sandwich. It is divine, trust me. Have it with salsa verde (a parsley, pesto) and or spicy red.
