Zuckerberg Stiffs Waiter in Jewish Restaurant

By: JTA

Honeymooning Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his bride, Priscilla Chan, paid $40 for lunch at a Jewish restaurant in Rome’s historic ghetto but did not leave a tip, according to Italian media.

Newspapers ran pictures of what they said was the billionaire couple’s bill at the Nonna Betta restaurant — Jewish style artichokes and fried zucchini flowers (both Roman Jewish specialties) as starters; one order between them of ravioli stuffed with artichokes and sea bass; tea and water.

The total came to just 32 euro – about $40 — including the cover charge for bread that is normal for restaurants in Italy.

Staff at the restaurant were quoted in newspapers as saying the couple did not leave any gratuity.

“I asked him ‘how was it?,’ and he said ‘very good,’ ” Nonna Betta’s owner was quoted as telling the Corriere della Sera newspaper. “I had gone up to him and said, ‘Are you …?’ and he said, ‘Yes.’ ”

Media reports said the couple went on to Capri after Rome.

  1. Menachem Rivkie Lazar says:

    Nonna Betta is NOT kosher anymore, please fix.

  2. Yori Yanover says:

    Fixed. Thanks for the tip (so to speak).

  3. If this is true, it is sad. A billionaire has no justifiable reason for not providing a tip, especially if he or she was happy with the service. This can easily be seen as taking food out of the waiter's mouth.

  4. Italian restaurants add service charges to the bill. US restaurants do not, except for around Times Square in NYC where the wait staff gets stiffed all the time by Italian, French, and Spanish tourists.

  5. I did not realize that a service charge is added to the bill.
