Servizio / Service Charge Questions

Jump to last reply

My questions DO NOT have to do with additional tipping, nor pane e coperto; but specifically "Servizio" or Service Charge, and its variations in Italy.

I have read a lot online, and I am still a little unclear on the 4 possible scenarios, listed below, and more importantly, what action you should take, if any. Can you help me clarify?

1. "Servizio Incluso" - No Line Item Should be Added on the Check - Tip built into the price of each item on the menu

2. "Servizio 15%" - Line Item Added on the Check for 15%

3. "Servizio Non Incluso" - Is it legal for them to add a Line Item in this case? If not, what if they try to add it on the bill?

4. Nothing stated on the Menu - No Line Item Should be Added for sure - But again, what if they try to add it on the bill?

Thanks,

Kris
