  • Great place to grab a quick bite to eat. They have so many options and you can't go wrong with any of them. We ate a couple of pastries from the bakery, had a beer at the bar along with some pizza. All of it was excellent. The atmosphere is wonderful and the theme of the market is great! I loved all of the drawings for each of the vendors.
  • Incredible foodie experience at Mercato Centrale! Here you can taste all the flavors of Italy and beyond. I even saw a food stall with ‘Japanese Ravioli’ who knew that was a thing? If you sit at one of the big tables upstairs someone will stop by and ask if you want a drink from the bar. I really enjoyed my time here sampling some of the different flavors. I will definitely return for more before heading out of Florence.
