Their place is surprisingly neat, considering it is located in the market with a lot of people...their lampredotto was great, & filling enough for lunch :) the staff are helpful & friendly, even though there were a lot of people crowding their stall...

Thank Cha G

We stumbled across this stall in the Mercato Centrale and were so happy we did! We got there before lunch time around 11am and had the Roast Beef Sandwich. They slice the meat right in front of you and you have the choice of adding two sauces-- one was really fresh with macerated celery, carrots and herbs while the other was a spicy red sauce. It was so good we tried to come back again the same afternoon and they had sold out of the sandwiches and only sold the meat in a plated version.

It's a definite must try--the sandwich we shared was much cheaper when we went at 1100 (only 3.5 euro)!

"boil beef", a heaping plate of steamy hot, thickly sliced of fatty beef with two scoops of sauces. One of the sauce was spicy, delicious and and based on harissa. The other was green and I couldn't tell what it was - except that it was GOOD.

The guy who sliced the beef had an attitude problem, but he was forgiven because the taste of the food

If you want to try the tripe, you may want a plate of tripe instead of the sandwich - why wast stomach space with bread? Fill it with a carafe of red wine.

The seating space was tight, we shared our table with two other families in this relatively busy environment - which I feel actually enhanced the eating-in-the-market experience.

Stopped by this place for a quick lunch after our trek out to Pisa in the morning. The sandwiches are really delicious, although seating can be very difficult. It also seemed to be overrun by chinese tourists who were more interested in taking pictures than eating the food. The pasta is not made to order, but it was still delicious. Beware of bones in the ragu sauce! The lampredotto sandwich was really flavorful and the bread was surprisingly good.

The service is hit or miss. We waited almost 15 minutes for our sandwich to be made because the guy at the sandwich station decided to do something else right when we approached. Then the staff was so busy attending to other people, we were left just standing there with a ticket. Not so great.

But food wise, I would definitely go back for the sandwiches!

Spent 4 days in Florence ate there 3 times for lunch or a snack. Where the locals go the rest will follow and they do. The beef sandwich was juicy and tender. Didn't get a chance to try other things because we couldn't get enough of the beef sandwiches. It was fun to watch an elderly man eating a sandwich and having a glass of wine at 8 in the morning. Great to be on vacation.
