It seems no visit to Florence would be complete without taking a quick bite at Nerbone, which closed on Sunday. It wasn't very crowded when we arrived the Mercato Centrale shortly after 10am, though there were a steady stream of customer keeping the few gentlemen at work busy dishing out the sandwitches. While most people opted for the boiled beef... More

As with many in-market, locals-focused, counter-ordering food establishments this place can be a tad intimidating at first, but it's well worth the trouble. You go up to the counter and there is a short list of dishes. You can also get beer and wine here. We ordered a Taglietelle and Risotto. Paid 4 euros for each. Magnifico! Both were outstanding....

This place is an institution and you should try it if you want to experience an easy and quick lunch in the crowded and charmingly chaotic Mercato Centrale. The prices are good and the food is tradition fiorentino with Ribollita, Trippa and Lampredotto. Always crowded, so not the place if you like eating in tranquillity and definitely not a place...

A cheap eatery at the mercato centrale serving among other dishes the best lampredotto i had in Florence, I don't like these market type eateries, but Nerbone is always on top of my list when in Bella Firenze!

Located in the Mercato Centrale this is the place the locals go to eat. Tourists go upstairs, locals go here. There is always a line because the food is that good. Don't miss this place, it's worth the wait

Simple but AMAZING: Roast beef platter, grilled artichoke hearts, hearty bread and a half-liter of red wine for EUR 15.50. The artichoke hearts are seasonal, but there are plenty of other options all year long. No fancy service required. This is one place not to be missed, at Florence's Central Market.

The food was good, however we had to wait for a very long time- the friends of the staff getting ahead of clients first- the butcher wasnt very kind either- and worst of all the owner is absolutely rude and was swearing flowers to the customers- Good food but next time i ll pass

Love trying food at the market. Had to queue for 30 minutes. Love how u can ask for chilli paste for the pasta/tripe. Recommended: tagliatelle, tripe, sliced beef. Red wine a little mediocre, but considering the price this place is worth a try!

Good local food in the central market, perfect place for a quick and cheap lunch. Usually there is a long queue but the staff is very friendly and quick, so you don't have to wait long. It might be difficult to get a table, but it is worth a try and normally people just eat and leave, so it doesn't... More
