I had read some stellar reviews for the sandwiches at Nerbone in Mercato Centrale, so my husband and I stopped in during our first day wandering around Florence. Although I loved the market, I wish that w had gone upstairs to the second floor instead of stopping here. Although the sandwich was good, the bread was very dense (it almost... More

Stumbled upon this place while strolling through the market... I had the Pork sandwich and it was one of the finest things that I've ever tasted... the cut of meat, the gravy, the bread, everything was simply superb... it's been around 8 hours now and I still can't get the taste out of my mouth- heading back first thing tomorrow...

We were in awe in the the Central Market with all the wonderful, fresh foods and we couldn't decide where to have lunch so we picked the place with the longest line and weren't disappointed. Apparently I had a cow stomach sandwich - so good! I don't know what else we had but it was all incredible and fresh. Best... More

what an institution...and what delicacy. pork cheeks are to die for, and the lampredotto is a revelation...tender, juicy, delicious... simply beautiful. no nonsense, hardcore value-for-money food option that proved to be one of the most satisfying meals of our one week Florence stay. go there even if you don't like to eat stomach...simply to soak in the vibe and the...

I was recommended to try this place by my uncle. I went for lunch while in Florence and it was amazing! The pork sandwich I had was the best sandwich I have ever had. Highly recommend.

Porchetta sandwiches! Lampredotto sandwiches! Located in the coolest place in Florence, il mercato centrale. You can take them upstairs to the food court and enjoy them with a glass of wine.

The hot pork and beef sandwiches here are amazing, the bread is dunked in a thin gravy and is really is delicious. The surrounding food market sells everything you could want and would inspire anyone to cook.

Finally some typical cuisine. Want to to get away from the massive tourist offers in firenze ? Go here. Still serving the same typical food for years. Do not ask about what you are eating otherwise you probably won't ask for it, just enjoy the flavours. Well, there are safe options like pasta and rice... but be prepared to get... More

Quite possibly some of the tastiest food I've had in Florence. Delicious boiled beef sandwich! Excellent service, well worth a visit!
