Why wont the Italian Tourist Board ban cover charge. Paying around Euro2.50 per person is shocking. Not everyone eats or wants bread. However the waiters throw the bread down on the table with hurried aggression. It is tasteless, dry and probably made as cheaply as possible. When ordering a main course dish one expects some vegetables to come with it. However in all restaurants we ate at we did not get veges, unless we ordered a separate salad, at an additional 4.50 Euros. Eating out is no fun in Tuscany. The food is disgusting, too much pasta, and only carbohydrates. We tried to order tap water and these waiters just wont hear, throwing bottled water on our table again at a vast rip off price. When trying to explain we want tap water they come back with another bottled version of water.The waiters were unwelcoming towards our young children. Very child unfriendly, showing fury when the children dropped food on the table and floor, as most toddlers and young children do. Many of the menus dont cater for small children so it was a battle trying to feed them. Eating in restaurants in Tuscany is no fun, paying the cover charge is off putting and a complete rip off. On the whole the Italian people running a business there are out to rip off visitors to their area, and are so unpleasant. Sadly i would love to go back and visit the province for all its charming towns and scenery but the people are so unwelcoming, and greedy.
