Nothing Is Free Restaurant Charges Rs 1300 For Cutting And Serving Store-Bought Cake In Bizarre Incident
One restaurant just charged guests for cutting and serving a store-bought cake. The incident has left many stunned. The bizarre event took place in Italy.
Fabio Bregolato visited an unnamed pizzeria in Pino Torinese with his loved ones to celebrate his birthday. As the restaurant did not have any desserts on its menu, Bregolato decided to get a cake from another shop. However, they did not expect the following event. When the bill arrived, he noticed that he was charged approximately Rs. 1,331 for just cutting and serving the cake to the guests. The picture of the bill shared online clearly showcased that the guests were charged a cake-cutting fee.
“There were 10 of us, excellent pizza, and the service was well done, but… EUR 15 to cut a cake we brought ourselves was quite a style faux pas," said Bregolato to the New York Post. He added, "They could have let it slide; in my 40 years (and I’ve eaten a lot of pizzas), I’ve never come across a place that charged an extra fee for cutting a cake."

Further, Bregolato also stated that he had confirmed with the eatery if they could prepare some dessert in-house. “The pizzeria couldn’t make a dessert, but they said we could bring our own cake from outside," said the man.
Meanwhile, the restaurant claimed that they were being reasonable. It stated, "We duly noted it on the receipt and pay our taxes. It’s a service and, as such, has a cost."
