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

Mercato Centrale is a fantastic place to visit, buy some fresh fruit, and eat. There are a ton of restaurants on the second floor, which is full of tourists, but Nerbone (on the first floor) seemed to be where the locals went for an authentic, cheap, good lunch. The line goes quick. I ate here twice during my five day... More

There's nothing I love more than a simple but good food and here you can also get the best value for a meal - 3.5 Euros for a magnificent but simple boiled pork sandwich. Add a couple more Euros for some other extras (although the sandwich itself is sufficient for a nice light lunch). I'm amazed this place isn't more... More

We discovered Nerbone on our last day in Florence. We were shopping in the outdoor leather market and went into Mercato Centraal and saw this long line of people waiting to order. We looked at the food they were preparing and immediately knew it was something spectacular. Since we already had lunch, so my wife waited in line and I... More

On the food market we found the most tastefull turkeyburger ever! And cheap too! Real italian food in firenze is not so easy to find. We were not the only toerists to find it ofcourse...

Long line was worth the good sandwiches. For 14.50 euro, we got two sandwiches, a caprese salad, and two bottles of water. A steal! I got the panino porchetta (pork) and my husband got the panino lampredotto (tripe) with salsa verde and salsa piccante. Both were very good.

Did not know it is in the middle of the market until we were there. Since it is in the market, seating was acceptable but could not say good. However, the foods were surprisingly good (most of the dishes that we ordered). And then very cheap, 4 persons for lunch with 8 dishes, and some red wines and couple other... More
