Posted in: Rome restaurant shut down after charging Japanese tourists 695 euros See in context

I lived in Italy a long time,and I remember this episode very well.It was long time ago but still the practice continues.You go to a restaurant and they will suggest thier speciality or catch of the day which is not on the menu with great enthusiasm and fervour of pleasing you.But that is the catch,as soon as they have you on their hooks,they spoil you with tiny little anti pasto (appetizers) lots of them sometimes that they need to get rid off,Don't order off the menu ever in Italy,. You will end up paying well obove an ala Carte menu,unless you know the restaurant and owner,After having brought the bill a waiter in piazza Navona ,not knowing that I lived in Italy and understood the language,said it was obligatory for us to give him a tip of 15% even though a 20% service charge and a € 7.00 cover charge was already included.I quickly spoke in Italian and told him that the service was already in the bill,to which he replied.that the proprietor did not give the service to his waiters,but kept it for himself,and the waiters had to beg clients instead .
