Stumbled upon this place an fell in love. Got there before noon and the only choices were paninis. I had turkey and my nephew had beef. Both were delicious and more than filling. All this and a glass of wine each for 10 euros. Possibly the best bargain in Florence. By noon, the counter was packed with locals. The beautiful... More

Inside Mercato Centrale. Recommended by local friends that have been going here since they were kids. Clearly Nerbones is well known as the line is long and full of both locals and tourists. It is well worth the wait! They are famous for the Bollito beef and the tripe; both available on a sandwich or on its own. The rustic... More

Stumbled upon this spot. It's better than all the shops in the food court above I think. Clearly very authentic and super local. Tip, if you are a solo traveler, you can order half portion of the salad. I had a glass of Chianti Classico, the beef sandwich with both red and green sauce, and a half portion of the... More

We stopped here on our Florence for Foodies food tour and got the Bolito sandwich. It was great and in such a fun market to walk around!

I'm so impressed for this traditional Tuscan food. Let me share the best combination is to order 1 pcs beef or tripe stew and panini bread, then feel free to have it heavily with soaked bread.

Because it's been there for a long time, try it. Food is cheap, but tastes good. Before 12 noon, they only serve panini, although before lunch, as soon as some are cooked, they will already take them out for orders. So if you don't want to have a sandwich, but a different kind of meal, go at 12 noon. But... More

This is two thumbs up, the best beef place in town. Ordered a beef (bolito) sandwich, a beef tripe (lampredotto) stew and a cup of wine. Amazing!!

The place where Anthony Bourdain would be happy :) If you'll ever try tripes, you should try it here. And the bollito sandwich (3,5 euros!!!) was a masterpiece in all of its simplicity.
