Mercato Centrale Reviews
Went here for lunch. We ate in a restaurant overlooking the giant food court. All kind of local specialities, but also asian food etc. more »
This place serves the freshest pasta and beautiful roll of boiled beef. We bought some truffle here and lemoncello. Really not much open but its good to see the prices of fruit and salami and... more »
Upstairs eateries make this the BEST place to eat a range of quite inexpensive different foods if you don't want to spend ages in a restaurant. Fantastic freshly made pizzas and fresh pasta dishes from €7. Open all day and evening. Very busy at lunchtime, quieter at dinner. Chose from different outlets, grab a seat and drinks are served to the table.
Would recommend whenever you are in Florence! Very stylish! Collective dining! Great choice of local food and wine! Just you need to go upstairs! :)
