A Roman rip-off

Tourists who ordered two hamburgers, two double cappuccinos and 2 double Americanos in the panting heart of Rome with views of St.Peter’s Basilica found themselves having to fork out € 81.40.

The case sparked controversy on social media with many weighing in on the issue. Some argued that this was a bad advertisement for tourists who visit Italy’s capital, while others argued that the establishment in question ought to be heavily fined or closed down on account of its daylight robbery.

The tourists uploaded their bill on their Facebook account demonstrating how they were fleeced from a restaurant in the touristic heart of Rome. Included in the € 81.40 were service charges.

But the restaurant owner held his ground saying that tourists were well aware of the prices which were written on the menu and therefore were in a position to work out how much the meal would cost them.
