My husband and I are on our first ever trip overseas to italy for out 20th anniversary vey soon.
I have browsed this italian board for the past 2 weeks and thank you all so much as i can feel out the food scene and even plan a couple of dinners and lunches. I really enjoyed the info just posted on rome food tours! I am not sure how to navigate the service charges and when to tip and the cover charge for bread or something mentioned . I have tried to learn some italian but it is beyond me to a great degree. Any pointers as to the menus in italian as to tipping above the charged amount. I am in the restaurant industry and do not want to overlook the matter. thank you all.
