Discount for Cash?

I ate dinner last night with my family at an Italian restaurant in Mt. Kisco, NY. It is a white tablecloth place, probably family run, old school Bronx kind of food. When the check came, I offered my credit card. After my card was rung, the waiter brought the receipt over for me to sign. On the receipt was written another price, i think it was 107.00 if using credit card, 97.00 cash. (Light dinner for 3).

Am I missing something here or are the owners of this restaurant blatantly dissing the tax man? I would normally just accept the discount offer as a chance to save a couple of bucks, but while i really like the food at this place, the 2 times I have dined there, the service was inattentive, and it seemed like "regulars" got much better service.

Thus, I am throwing this out to you for debate. If you want to try the place, the name is Piero's II.

If I didn't feel that the staff's attitude was lousy, I would have thought it was a good deal. But on second thought, isn't it kind of audacious to brazenly dis the IRS?
