My wife and I went to Limoncello in the No. End Sat afternoon. We each ordered a glass of wine and shared an appetizer. After the app, the waiter appeared ready to take an order for lunch. I told him that was all we wanted and asked for the check. He said "this is a restaurant! We do not serve appetizers only!". He glared at me for a while and then said "well it's too late now", and brought the check.
Is this usual? Can't order apps only? Never had this happen before. Could this be the difference between a ristorante and a trattoria?
