I guess you take your chances when attempting to dine out on a Tuesday night out of season in this neck of the woods. The menu posted outside the restaurant looked varied and tempting, but on entering we were told that only Pizzas were available that evening. The pizzas we ended up with were freshly cooked and tasted OK, so that was a relief. Service was ambivalent, and we we charged the 'coperti' (bread/cover charge) but were not offered any bread. There goes the tip then!

The word means covered, in the equipment of table space with all the objects that are designed for a single diner. Cover charge is related to the uses of different countries and types of foods that are served, can vary greatly even within the same culture where home cooking, catering or meals for formal and elegant. Includes crockery, cutlery, glasses, tablecloth, napkin and, in the case of formal devices, many other pieces.
In the indoor dining also includes the type of quality service to the uniqueness of the restaurant itself, the professionalism of staff and additional services that are not quantified in the bill.
The payment covered the restaurants was born in the Middle Ages when many people benefited from the inn to consume their own food, especially in cold weather and in bad weather. The landlord, therefore, unable to sell them his food, the service was paid for this job fair (from which it takes its name) and, often, to use cutlery and plate.


La parola coperto indica, nell'apparecchiatura della tavola, lo spazio con tutti gli oggetti che vengono predisposti per un singolo commensale. Il coperto è legato agli usi dei vari paesi e alle tipologie di cibi che vengono serviti, può variare molto anche all'interno di una stessa cultura culinaria se casalingo, per la ristorazione o per pasti formali ed eleganti. Comprende le stoviglie, le posate, i bicchieri, la tovaglia, il tovagliolo e, nel caso di apparecchiature formali, molti altri pezzi.
Nella ristorazione il coperto comprende inoltre la tipologia qualitativa del servizio reso, la particolarità del ristorante stesso, la professionalità del personale e gli ulteriori servizi non quantificati nel conto.
Il pagamento del coperto nei ristoranti nacque nel medioevo quando molte persone usufruivano delle locande per consumare il proprio cibo, soprattutto nella stagione fredda e nelle giornate di cattivo tempo. L'oste pertanto, non potendo a questi vendere il suo cibo, faceva pagare il servizio per il posto coperto (da cui appunto prende il nome) e, spesso, per l'utilizzo di posate e piatto.

We have requested a steak. The steak was overcooked and impossible to eat. We have told the waiter and she did not come back with a proposal. We have then requested another steak and after a while we were told that they did not have it anymore. The person requesting the steak did not eat anymore as it was already too late to ask for something else.
At the end when the bill arrived the steak was included in the price (50%). We went to discuss with the owner and he told us that he did not accept critics on his food, if we don't like it, it is our problem. He told us the steak are always cooked that way in Sicily !
