This is our four time here, every time we come to Florence we make sure to go to the food markets at St Lorenzo and have the best fresh fried fish. The service is great and we always get a glass of vino even when it's 10am in the morning. There's a variety of fish dishes available or just pick... More

If you like fresh fish and you like it cooked perfectly and enjoy the vitality and exuberance of a busy market...you are in the right place. It's a fantastic seafood experience .

Ultima Spiaggia located next to the fish market in San Lorenzo Market. Seafood cannot be any fresher based on proximity. Grande Platto (grand plate) of fried calamari, bacala (cod), and gambari (giant shrimp) was only 15 Euro. Beer was 3 Euro. Best seafood ever. Already has a TripAdvisor decal in the window.

In the central food market at St Lorenzo are a number of fresh from stalls on the ground floor and restaurants / upmarket food court on the first floor. However before we discovered the food court we were lucky to see this fish place offering squid, king prawns, cod and whitebait cooked to order. Ask for a plate of any... More

We came and ate ta the Peaheria, we asked what was the dish most sold, and that told us "fries fish". It was awesome! Shrimp, squid, sardines (or some type of small fish. We loved it! A must when yo visit Mercato San Lorenzo

I was walking through the market and saw lots of people around carrying fried seafood. I decided to stop and try the Box Mix which is a mix of fried prawns, cod, and squid. The box mix was 10 euro, which is a great price for fast fresh seafood.

In the seafood section of Mercato Centrale, this stand serves up fresh, fried seafood. It doesn't get much better. We sat upstairs and ate a couple of things including this, but the seafood was the best! I'd probably just get fish & calamari next time. The shrimp look dramatic but unless you enjoy eating the shells and all probably would... More
