Tipping in Europe [Split from Spain/Portugal board]

A few years back, we were in Italy and across the street from our hotel was a place that served GREAT gelato. We were in there a lot and always left a little change as a tip. Then, there was a huge soccer victory, the streets were mobbed with people and almost no where to eat. We went to the gelato place which WAS open and MOBBED. When the clerk saw us, she made people get out of our way so we could get to the counter and get our gelato!

If I am staying in a city for more than a few days and will be making a return visit to a cafe/restaurant/bar, it is always to MY advantage to leave a tip....
