Do you prefer to reserve by phone or by internet (if available)?

Hi David Wimberley,


Thank you for the kind comment. :smile:

Your answer to your question is right. If the noun is not specified we have to use the masculine gender.

Keep up the good work! :thumbsup:


Grazie mille e a presto!

Thanks again for these fun and thorough phrase lessons. It's so good how you contextualize the phrases.


Can you please explain why we say "Quante persone siete?" in the last lesson but "Quanti siete?" in this lesson? Is it the case that, when no noun is specified, it's assumed to be male? But if "persone" is specified, then of course the female "quante" is used?

Ciao Julie,

the phrase "can I make a reservation?" can be also used in a hotel and so you can say: posso fare una prenotazione per AND THEN YOU ADD THE DAY.


Sometimes you can hear it even when booking train tickets, but this specific phrase is not really common, you might hear more often: vorrei pronotare due biglietti per Milano - "I would like to book two tickets to Milan"


The phrase "to reserve a table" is correct, even in Italian. So in the situation you were mentioning you can use: posso riservare un tavolo? "can I reserve a table?"

can you use this phrase to make a reservation on a train or at a hotel? ;Posso fare una prenotazione per --------? Also if you walked into a restaurant you liked and wanted to return for dinner, could you use this phrase to reserve your table?

Hi Deb,


The phrase โ€œfor this eveningโ€ is literally translated as โ€œper (for) questa (this) sera (evening)โ€. The uncountable feminine noun โ€œstaseraโ€ is the result of the phonetic contraction of โ€œquesta seraโ€ (drop โ€œqueโ€ and add โ€œstaโ€ to โ€œseraโ€).

They mean the same, though stasera is slightly less formal.

I 'm a little confused. Is "for this evening" per questa sera or per stasera? Or are they both the same?
