rude children cannot enter the pizzeria – Italian Cuisine

rude children cannot enter the pizzeria

The sign was displayed in front of the entrance of the Bagà pizzeria in Villa di Tirano by Gabriele Berbenni, the 25-year-old owner, who wants to "protect customers looking for a quiet place"

Prohibition of entry for children, if rowdy, rude, screaming and too lively. The owner of the Bagà pizzeria in Villa di Tirano, in the province of Sondrio. "The children left unattended to run around the place, who scream or stand on benches and chairs disturb the other customers," wrote Gabriele Berbenni, 25, on a sign posted on the door of the place. «Therefore, we reserve the right to take them in the kitchen washing dishes with a lot of adhesive tape on the mouth . But the playful tone soon becomes more serious: "Customers who come to our restaurant have the pleasure of spending their lunch or dinner in peace without the background of rude children screaming". Here are the suggestions for people for whom "all this is not possible": "Coming to Bagà without children, educating your children, changing pizzerias, stay at your house. Signed "The Black Man".

At the Province of SondrioBerbenni explained that he is tired of the complaints of customers of all time: "Often they have eaten the meal with us parents with children on the edge of education who scream, they run from all sides. They go up and down the stairs, they play hide and seek inside and outside the bathroom. If they end up on a waitress, who goes by with pizzas and glasses, and they get hurt, then the problems are mine. In addition, some historical customers, having finished the pizza or half of it, left because they couldn't take it anymore because of the screams of the children .
The owner of the Bagà pizzeria knows that the placard he has posted can drive away many potential customers: «Some families who have read it they headed back and they did not enter. It is obvious that I can lose turnover, but I must protect the rest of the clientele who are looking for a quiet and well-kept place. Some customers tell me they have done well and leave their children with their grandparents. Others have complained. "

A few parents entered the same, regardless of the warning, together with the confusing children. «To those who, despite the sign, came in with the children who made havoc we kindly asked to make less noise. They gave us peasants and they are gone.
