Ital­ian Din­ing Faux Pas

SLOW Magazine - - Must Go -

No cap­puc­ci­nos af­ter break­fast – Ital­ians view diary as a break­fast ac­com­pa­ni­ment, not for all-day drink­ing.

Re­lax and en­joy your meal. Waitrons won’t be ask­ing you how your food is ev­ery few min­utes, you will be left to en­joy it in peace with your fel­low din­ers, and you won’t get your bill un­less you specif­i­cally ask for it.

Don’t just top up your own drink, al­ways top up those of your fel­low din­ers too.

Cheese has no place with fish in Italy – the two are al­ways sep­a­rate, so only ask for parme­san on your seafood dish if your plan is to gain some scorn­ful glances.
