A must when you're at the Mercato Centrale

You must visit the Mercato Centrale if you are in Florence and when there you should have a meal at Nerbone. The prices are very inexpensive, and it's kind of a hoot to try to decipher the menu and hang with the locals. Of course, it's very touristy as well, and you will be able to get by without... read more

We ejoyed the soup and the lampredotto with the traditional sauces. Food is very good and people are very friendly and spoke with some lovely florentines sharing our table. Lovely.

The food is definitely not worth waiting in a line for! although if you are in the area it is genuine Tuscan flavours, with a glass of table wine chianti that is perfect for lunch. Not my favourite place for tripe although the panino is available so you can even stand at the bar with a beer or glass of... More

This is a market food stall not a restaurant. The emphasis is on quick, low cost, hearty food for market visitors and workers. Consequently, as you would expect, the service is brisk and efficient. The adventure was Lampredotto, the third stomach of a cow served either in a bowl or a bread roll. I chose the roll as I didn't... More

This place is a real find, it's in the Mercado and at the east end. The Hot Pork sandwich is amazing, when they ask if you want it bagno (dipped in broth) say yes. Get a carafe of house red and find a table. Relax and Enjoy.

No matter how you like tripe or not, at least, have to try once in Florence. But, for me, it was really tasty. Great taste at great price. However, would like to recommend another street vendor near to this place, lot tastier :)

Visited on Saturday 3PM. No line. Asked whatever pasta they have - got kind of beef stew without any pasta (said nothing to me before placing it in the plate). I Remained polite (read that everything is delicious there) and accepted. Was about to eat half of the plate - they turned out lights, started to smoke and slowly imitate... More

Caravan eating at its best. We have been here many times, but this visit we took the train from Rome to Florence for the day for a Panini Bolito at Nerbone. If you haven't tried one, it is a must, especially with their house red wine at 11am (any later and there will be a big queue).

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.
