“They serve breakfast, the easiest and best way to get one of their sandwiches while avoiding the crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I stopped by on Saturday (3/23/2013) at 9:00am and found out that Nerbone serves breakfast. You can have their sandwiches or a plate of meat with bread on the side. The choices for both are boiled beef or boiled stomach, with choice of spicy or pesto sauces. It indeed was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. The meat was extremely juicy and tender. The spicy sauce (red) was hot, but not Korean food hot. It definitely accentuated the sandwich without masking the taste of the meat.

And there was no line in the morning. The tables were also relatively empty. They speak some English, and a little patience is needed when ordering if you don't speak Italian, but excellent service overall.

“The best panino bollito in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I often shop in the Central Market in the morning. If I'm not in a rush, I'll have my breakfast at Nerbone - a panino bollito. I can't quite manage lampredotto (part of a cow's stomach) in the morning, but the boiled meat is fantastic. They cut it really finely, wap it in a bun, then you can have salsa verde and/or salsa piccante (it's very spicy by the way) on it. Absolutely delicious and it only costs €3.50. They also serve many other tradition Florentine dishes too. Lots of marketeers have their breakfast or morning glass of wine here, so there is always a host of colourful charaters to watch. From about 11pm up to lunch the queue starts heading outside - that's how popular it is. Bbut it is so worth the wait. I true taste of Florence.

“Delicious quick food at the market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We were walking around the market in the morning and getting hungrier by the minute. We asked a local where we could get food and he recommended this small stand. They had excellent meat cooked and served on a bun. It was really good and the perfect snack to tide us over to lunch.
