Boisterous, busy & loved it! - Edit

Firstly we should have read the reviews as to where it was within the market, upstairs & by the bar (well at least you build an appetite finding it) it’s a typically busy food & flower market downstairs so if your sensitive to butchers/ fish mongers etc then best to avoid. Upstairs is a bustling vibrant food court, lots of people & not enough places to sit at busy times so be patient & go with the flow (where else can you wait for a burger whilst enjoying a lovely prosecco!)
The vegan burgers are clearly marked, my husband had the Popeye & we shared potatoes (delicious btw) , generous portions full of fresh food and yes very messy to eat but that’s half the fun. There was a very vibrant mix of people eating lots of different foods so if your looking for a vegan/vegetarian oasis of calm this isn’t it. We loved it!

Pros: The food, The staff, Bar next to Veg &. Veg

Cons: Busy hall at times so seating can be limited

Good and bad - Edit

I had high hopes of my meal here but it didn't really hit the spot. Partly that may be down to my choice. I had the Popeye burger which my friend recommended and also on his recommendation swapped out the mayo, which he said was too much,with some green pesto. Given that the burger itself is a little bland this meant i was left wanting a good dollop of chilli sauce or relish to kick up the flavour.
I should have read the menu and chosen the L'Arzillo,the other vegan burger in the menu as that has spicy mayo. It also has roasted peppers and aubergine so would be much more tasty for me than the Popeye which has roasted red onions and raw red cabbage etc.
The bun is a good and big locally made wholegrain thing but toasted so a bit on the dry side. Perhaps that's why you need all the mayo that others say is rather messy to eat!
Nicely assembled burger it certainly looks the part.
Also I ordered the roast potatoes and a juice drink which you can have on a deal for €15. Saves €1.50
As someone else has said these potatoes are very salty. Too salty really so eating these with the burger made the burger taste rather bland.
The juice drink was good I had the one with beetroot juice in it.
I would give this place another try. I would like to have the other burger on its own with a drink.
Unless you are really hungry you won't need the potatoes and burger as the burgers are large and filling. If there are two of you share some potatoes.
I did like the busy environment of the market and wasn't too bothered about the smells of meat and other people's meals being eaten all around.
I am a relatively new vegan and live with meat eaters in my family.
If you are sensitive to this as a vegan then you probably should not come here. There are other options in Florence.

Pros: Big portions. Busy environment upstairs above an i

Cons: those salty spuds. some may dislike the butchers

Yummy burger - Edit

I had the spicy burger which was quite tasty. This was partly due to generous amounts of spicy mayo which also made the burger a bit hard to eat. Make sure to get some extra napkins! The fresh juices were also amazing.

great burgers! - Edit

We've been here twice so far during our stay. A big bonus is that you can have a burger for late breakfast or early lunch, when many places don't serve food yet. Also warm and cosy in the winter thanks to space heaters in every corner of the food court.

Thanks to other reviewers for mentioning exactly where in the mercato centrale Veg and Veg is, IT'S ON THE FIRST FLOOR!

Pros: open early for food, great atmosphere, friendly staff

Cons: all the meat you see while in the food court

delicious veggie burger! - Edit

After a long walk trough Florence center looking for a nice veggie place. Happy Cow helped me to find this restaurant in the foodcourt on the first floor of this market.
Had a delicious burger and a power juice:) the atmosphere is great!

adorable & delicious - Edit

When we finally arrived here, we had already eaten so just tried the chocolate dessert. And woah! That was beyond awesome! If that's an indication of the quality and passion put into the rest of the menu, I have so doubt how incredible everything is.

Pros: fabulous dessert

Nice place, good food - Edit

Would be worth mentioning in the main description this place is in the food court on the first floor of the market (so you don't end up circling downstairs endlessly getting hungrier by the minute :D).

Anyway, it was great being in amongst the crowds in the food court and having lots of options (burgers, salads, potatoes, juices etc) to choose from. Thought the staff were friendly and it didn't take too long for food to arrive.

I had the arzillo burger, was very tasty, but suspect it was the spicy mayo giving the flavour rather than the burger itself, which was more like a squishy patty than a crispy burger. Portions are big, which is good, bun was toasted and seeded which was also good.

Choice + atmosphere meant it was a good place overall to dine for lunch.

Pros: Choices/options, Atmosphere of the food market

Cons: Thought salad was a bit pricey, esp for 3 options

Yummy vegan burgers - Edit

The burgers here are great! The chef told us that they didnt have the potato chips at the time so made us a delicious giant salad instead. We tried 2 of the vegan burgers and both wete fantastic. The only complaint would be that the lady at the counter was quite rude and was constantly on her phone rather than serving. But the chef was lovely and so were the meals.

good burger and chips! - Edit

If your looking for burger and chips I would recommend this place. It was located on the first floor of the indoor market, a great place to hang out...I got the L'arzillo burger it was a bit dry, not the best I've ever had but all in all it was a good burger. The desserts where amazing we tried the 'cheese cakes' and chocolates cake both were delicious .

really great burgers definitely worth visiting - Edit

This is inside the Market on the second floor (so you better head up the stairs) in the food court. It's great and really busy. We tried three burgers between us and they were all amazing. The potato chips were just awesome. The juices wash everything down well. We really enjoyed this, and kids ate their share - so a vote from them!

Not great - Edit

The staff were friendly but food was pretty poor. We got an Il Magnifico meal which was the burger, potatoes and a small juice for 17 euros. We decided to share this between us as the portions were pretty big.

However, the burger was dry and the bun being over toasted didn't help. The potatoes were incredibly salty to the point we couldn't finish them. The juice was fine but small was probably not enough for us to share. The market itself was interesting with quite a few other options for vegetarians (not much else for vegans though).

This place will do at a push but there are much better options available.

Pros: Nice staff, good location, big portions, something

Cons: Most importantly not very tasty! Quite expensive

These burgers are huge ! - Edit

Located at Mercato Centrale.
There were 5 options when I went.
The first time...I was in transition so the vegetarian option was amazing and I could hardly finish (all of their burgers are vegetarian, 2 are strictly vegan).
Recently went back and had one of their vegan burgers...equally as amazing. I believe it was the Popeye.
The burgers alone are 8Euro (trust me, worth it!). For another 3 euro you can get a small container of fresh potato slices.
They also serve great fresh juices, salads and soups.

Pros: Vegan Vegetarian Fresh juices Filling

Excellent vegan options - Edit

Good selection of burgers, not all vegan but if you ask they can make it vegan with vegan mayo/cheese. I had the quinoa soup which was nice if not a little too peppery. They had two soups available, lots of burgers and other sides and smoothies. Partner enjoyed her burger a lot. She also got a vegan cheesecake but I didn't taste it as I wasn't feeling in the mood, but said it was very nice.
It's located upstairs in the meat hall, so bit odd with all the dead animals around, but I'm glad it's there for options and making change.

Pros: Good service

Cons: Located in meat hall

Would be five stars if vegan... - Edit

My wife and I each had a burger and split a large order of potatoes. We loved every bite! A little expensive for us as we are traveling on a tight budget, but very tasty.

The location is inside the big market building and upstairs. The building looks closed at night, but the upstairs remains open and looks like a food court. You'll have to walk through a bunch of dead animals hanging to find the counter as well. #ItalianStyle

5-Ingredient Salad - Edit

We stopped into the very busy Mercato and ate at Veg&Veg.
We shared the larger salad. There is a good amount of choices, vegetable-wise. It comes in a bread "bowl" so it's quite filling.

Pros: Good to have a veg option

Don't Bother - Edit

I'm surprised at all the 4/5 star reviews.

It's in this big kinda shopping centre which has a very 'London-y' feel to it, though there is a massive MEAT butcher shop right next to it with pig legs and cow carcasses hung up with happy cartoon pigs/cows on the signs which really angered me.

Me and mum got the 'pop eye' burger, be careful when ordering which burger if you are vegan as the descriptions will say 'vegan burger .... cheese' and it is not vegan cheese.

The burgers were really dry and the very dry toasted bun did not help. There was too much mayo in it too.

It was very messy to eat. Mum took out the stick in the middle of the burger and it completely fell apart, so I kept mine in ha.

We also got a '3 ingredient' salad and I chose lettuce, carrot and corn, but that was 5 euros, very expensive for what it was. The burgers however were only 8 euros each and were massive.

Overall I would not bother coming here if I were you, there is hardly any variety, it's dry, it's a crowded place... Universo Vegano is 100x better.

Pros: Affordable burger

Cons: Very dry, No Variety, Crowded, off putting place

Delicious and SO filling - Edit

The burgers here are great. I got the meal combo with a vegan burger, potatoes, and a fresh juice. I could not finish the burger and could only eat a few of the potatoes. I wanted to finish it so badly, but it was SO filling! My non-veg boyfriend was impressed as well. I would absolutely return.

Great Location. Good food - Edit

This place was honestly a life saver when I was in florence. Mum and I went there twice during our short stay- both times we had just come off the train and were very tired so it was great having somewhere just around the corner!
The burgers were nice and the potatoes were really yum + a good size ( a large fed us both easily). The soup was warm and comforting and the chocolate tart was also amazing . Would definitely recommend if you are in the area and need to grab lunch, dinner or a late night snack ( it's open till 12 am!!}

Pros: fast , convenient , good atmosphere
