"Cover charge" Do As Romans Do Tip by TinKan
Do As Romans Do, Rome: 158 reviews and 144 photos
In Italy it is customary to have a cover charge (Coperto) added to your bill at every place that you sit down to eat or drink. This is to pay for the bread sticks and the cleaning of the table.
Even if you just sit to take a break at a table at a snack shop expect to pay this coperto even if you do not eat the bread or olives.
This is why the shops do not like you to sit without buying something. They will still charge you and you should pay. It is their way.
