Zero to cabs.

If you really feel that you must tip at restaurants you can round up the bill, but not more than 2 or 3 euros (for the table, not per person).

Italiand don't tip, not the way it's done in North America.

Rounding up to the nearest Euro is the general safe practice. There is no need to give anything extra.
