What do you like to order when going to an Italian restaurant? Except PIZZA of course!

Hi Yen Chun,


In this dialogue they're using polite Italian, so you should use "Lei" instead of "tu" when addressing directly someone (both males and females) and conjugate the verbs in the 3rd person singular.

Cosa (tu) desideri? (informal)

Cosa (Lei) desidera? (formal)


Let us know if you have other questions!

Scusi,

Why "Desidera una macchina veloce o comoda?" (Would you like a fast or comfortable car?) is using "desidera" not "desideri"?

Buon giorno!


Mi chiamo Lassi, piacere. (My name is Lassi, nice to meet you)


Perchรฉ c'รจ a volte "che" e talvolta "c'รจ"? (Why there is sometimes "che" and sometimes "c'รจ"?)

Per esempio: (For example:)

Si, c'รจ una sala fumare. (Yes, there is smoking room.)

A che ora volete prenotare? (At what time do you like to reserve?)


Grazie per questa lezione. (Thank you for this lesson.) :smile:

Mantenere il buon lavoro. (Keep up the good work.) :thumbsup:

Buon pomeriggio Anthony,


Thank you for your question.

"Menรน" ends with รน and all the words that have an accent on the last syllable, in Italian, have only one form for both singular and plural.

You should say "Tre menรน per favore!".


Grazie mille e a presto!

Buon pomeriggio,


In the dialog, a menu is requested. What is the plural for menu? So that I may ask,

"three menus please."


Is it:


Tre menu per favore. Is the plural of menu, menu?

Ciao Duane,


in order to say "I would like sparkling water" you should say "vorrei dell'acqua gassata" and "water" is simply "acqua". "Vorrei dell'acqua", but don't forget to say "per favore", please.:wink:


A presto,


Consuelo

I don't drink alcohol, so how do I say "I would like Sparkling Water" or "I would like Water?"

Dear Peter,

Nice find, it was a typo.

Thank you for your feedback
