da Nerbone has been a mainstay inside Mercato Centrale since 1872, and commands a perch on the ground floor close to the south east entrance. This is the best place to eat Florentine paisano food--lampredotto, trippa, and panino di arista made with loin from the fabled cinta senese. We were there on a Saturday at noon when the market was... More

The sandwiches with beef stomach(in Italian called Lampredetto something) are good, especially the one without tomato, containing some spicy flavor, which gave me some surprise. But the queue was extremely long and staff inside the bistro were intervened by other people's talking again and again. Also, the amount of seats was not likely affording large groups of people. in the... More

The restaurant is located in the central market of florence - it ia frequented by many locals and tourists. We asked for their specialty and got the beef stew, tripes and porchetta. The porchetta was delicious but the beef stew and tripes were okay. It was not bad - just okay. It seemed like the beef and tripe packed punch... More

This restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Mercato Centrale. It offers a wide choice from soups to pasta to casseroles. They also offer meat sandwiches. I do not believe that they serve dinner. Everything that we tasted was excellent in taste and freshness. I say this, because this is a fast food place. It nonetheless does not... More

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
