We just happened to be at the Mercato Centrale when we decided to eat there. We saw a looong line outside of "de Nerbone" and thought "the food must be good, since they were serving pretty fast and the line kept the same size. The food was indeed great. We ordered a Greek Salad (arugula, basil, mozzarella di buffala and... More

We joined the long line to order and pay. Some food was served then, but boiled beef required one to wait in yet another line. The wife liked the boiled beef; I did not like the tripe. We got lucky getting a place to sit to eat.

When in Florence, don't miss a tour of the central market and enjoy the displays of food and fresh ingredients. A must visit is to have a bite at Nerbone and try one of the legendary sandwiches with tripe or porchetta. It doesn't get much better than at this place, which looks like an ordinary market stall, but is in... More

The restaurant has been here for decades & in the last decade or two, as cuisine has caught up with the type of food served here, it's become more of a destination. Started out as the basic tripe sandwich bar... where workers in the Market and the San Lorenzo area stopped in to get good, cheap, consistent food. Now that... More

It was just a delicious sandwich of beef brisket. Full of flavour and juicy. Only if the bread is of better quality or at least warm, this would be a real heaven. By the way, beware of the queue.

This small restaurant in actually located in the building of the Mercato Centrale. There is very limited seating. You order at the counter and are presented your sandwich wrapped in wax paper. They do have wine available. This is very casual. For lunch we enjoyed a warm sandwich of stewed tripe called a "lampredotto". The name comes from the resemblance... More

Good to have a chance to grab their food as "breakfast" before leaving Florence. Since we were in a rush, I just ordered two things for to go: boiled beef sandwiches and boiled beef intestine (I guess). They were both very tasty. It would be much better if they could have toasted the bread before it's served. The boiled beef... More

We ate at Nerbone a couple of times before on our previous Florence visits, but got sandwiches before. Those are great, but the dishes we got this time were way better. Had a couple of plates of their vegetable soup (zuppa de verdura), a porchetta plate, and a tripe (stomach) plate. Outstanding flavors and textures in all. The soup though... More

This bldg and concept reminded me sort of like Fanueill Hall in Boston, except in Italy with more character. Went here based on recommendations from trip advisor and it was spot on...even chose the pork sandwich with green? sauce from looking at the pics. The pork was tender and juicy and the sandwich was to die for. I still think... More
