Couple declines free holiday after US$1,000 restaurant bill..

A Japanese couple has turned down the offer of a free trip to Italy, after they complained about a EUR700 (US$1,000) restaurant bill during a previous trip to the country. According to a Guardian report, Yasuyuki Yamada thanked Italy’s Tourism Minister for the compensatory offer, but said the trip would be a “useless way to spend Italian tax-payers’ money”.

Mr Yamada and his fiancée complained to police after they received the bill at the Il Passetto restaurant in Rome. The same restaurant had received a similar complaint from another Japanese couple a few weeks earlier, the report added.

We would suggest that this is one restaurant to avoid...and pass the message on to others.
