Il coperto/cover charge

Jump to last reply

When eating restaurants in Italy, we were charged coperto/covercharge of euro 1.50 to 2 per person. I have 2 small kids ,9 and 11 y old. sometimes they charge the kids ,sometimes they don't. I know this cover charge is for tap water and bread basket. I usually get bottled water but I am just wondering : If I refused the bread and drink tap water,can I tell the waiter to take the cover charge off? When in Paris ,I always drink carafe d Eau and service is included in the price listed. is coperto mandatory ? In Venice,we ate at a restaurant by the Rialto bridge,when checking out the menu,there was a big sign : No Cover Charge. but I usually don't think about whether there is a covercharge or not when eating out.Just curious.
