Mercato Centrale is a mandatory place if you want to try local meals with a great amount of options on a nice place. It´s very easy to find and on Sunday you also have a local street market in front of it.

Just been tonight open until midnight though most of the food outlets closed by 2230 really. Well worth a visit for a noisy chaotic fun experience of food and drink. We will be going again soon
