Am about to write up reviews for a recent trip and wish to verify if the 10% service charge at Trattoria Cadorna which is quite recommended here is normal and applies to everyone. Alternatively, was I bilked because I am obviously a foreigner?
When I looked at the menu initially, I thought the prices were very reasonable but then when I paid the bill there was a 10% service charge on top of the bread/ cover charge. I didn't think much of it then but it certainly defeats the reasonable prices. Also, there was no mention of it in the menu. I have since been reading of various places where other Chowhounders have been subjected to this treatment too.
