We had the most amazing seafood pasta at Osteria All'Antico Mercato. Definitely a worthy dining experience and we would recommend visiting this great restaurant. Great value for scrumptious food!

My son was starving but didn't want to eat at the central mercado when we stumbled on to this restaurant. We had a margarita pizza and I had a nice draft beer. He liked his pizza so much we came back again. I saw everyone enjoying their pasta dishes. I tried the Tiramisu which I thought was a bit too... More

My husband, teenage daughter and myself happened upon this restaurant (when another we wanted to try was full). We were delighted with our meals, we ordered a pasta dish, pizza and calzone - the ingredients tasted fresh and delicious. The prices are very reasonable and it's a relaxing environment. The staff was was friendly, attentive and a great sense of... More

Look I'm not saying this restaurant will make a Top ten list, but for the money, it can't be beat. The food was tasty and consistent. I loved the funghi ravioli dish. Even the house wine was acceptable. The two of us were usually in and out for under 40€ including wine. Staff was nice and service was efficient. It... More

My friends and I ate here almost 10 times and tried everything we could on the menu. Nothing disappoints! The food is great and... More

We went as we found good ratings in here but honestly? Not the best. It's not bad but after looking around we saw we got too excited too fast when we could have gotten better. So do your research! It's a nice place to eat, the staff is uninterested. The day we went was a week day and it was... More

The service at here was great. They were fast, family-friendly, and welcoming to all. The place had a nice homey feel, but we didn't think the food lived up to all the reviews and expectations. Nice place though! It was good.

This place is affordable (something which is not easy to find in Florence old city) but their food is pretty bad! My salami gorgonzola pizza was pretty bland and fatty. If your are considering this place then I would recommend going to the newly opened foot court in the Mercato (on the second floor) instead. Don't be mistaken by the... More
