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

No visit to Florence is complete without a visit to Mercato Centrale and no visit to the Mercato Centrale is complete without a visit to Antica Tripperia 'Nerbone'. The markets themselves are a wonderful place to stroll and look at or buy fresh local produce and then when hunger strikes you head to Nerbone and buy a Panini or Pasta,... More

We visited Mercato Centrale and did lunch at da Nerbone. Had to jockey for a table b/c it is so popular but the food was great and the tight seating makes it even more fun. You need to experience the food market, one of the oldest in Italy.

The food was OK - the service was appalling. All they need to do is taking money and put food on the plates considering it's just a small food joint, yet they can manage to make it look like they are significantly superior than the clients. At my visit there were tourists waiting in the queue, and the friends of... More

Da Nerbone, in mercato centrale, in Florence, Tuscany, is one of the best places I tried in my life. Pasta, beef, wine, souces, sandwich, everything delicious! You make line, ask for poultry and panino al lampredotto! oohh my God!
