Italians face leftovers dilemma in restaurants

In Italy, it is unusual to ask the waiter of your restaurant for a bag to take away your leftovers. If you do that, you will often demurely say that it is “for your dog”.

The campaigns against food waste are now partly changing this trend, but still according to the Italian Farmers’ Association only one Italian in five will dare asking for a “doggy bag”.

Unfortunately you cannot do that at marriages, when the waste of food in Italy is embarrassing.
