For the past 24 hours, European writers — apparently starved for stories about Italian restaurant etiquette — have been obsessing over allegations that Mark Zuckerberg failed to leave tips at two restaurants during his honeymoon in Rome with Priscilla Chan.
The "issue" started when a waiter tweeted that the Facebook founder, currently worth about $20 billion, didn't leave a gratuity after having lunch at Nonna Betta , a kosher restaurant in Rome's Jewish quarter. The couple's bill, gratuitously posted online by the restaurant, came to 32 euros, or about $40, for shared plates of Roman-Jewish specialties: deep-fried artichokes, fried pumpkin flowers, ravioli stuffed with sea bass and artichokes, and tea and water.
We may never know what actually happened. A Facebook spokesperson declined to comment, saying "the trip in question is a private one."Page 1 of 4 | Next Page
