If you are ever in Florence, don't miss this market! Mercato Centrale is not only a fun and colorful place to visit, but also the best place to stop for lunch. Its food stalls provide a wide variety..... more »
We ran in here for dinner when our other plans fell through. I worried this would be too touristy, but it actually turned out to be full of Italians. There were lots of delicious options for dinner.... 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! :)
