Italian Restaurant Basics


Sometimes language learning becomes over-complicated. There are some situations when we can get by with a few words.

Here are a few of these words/phrases used as you enter an Italian restaurant, say hello and ask for a table:

Buongiorno or buonasera.

Buongiorno is used before late afternoon when you can use buonasera.

Vorrei un tavolo

I’d like a table

Siamo in quattro (There are four of us – literally ‘we are in four’).

And when you finish:

per  favore,  posso  avere il  conto?

Can I have the bill, please?

Besos, baci and Pax.
