Rules of conduct in South Tyrol
But sometimes the step to drop a brick is small. Don’t worry: we give you some tips with which you surely will not be embarrassed in a restaurant for instance.
Cappuccino x 2
You know you are in Italy, even if nearly everyone is speaking German. So you have to spell Italian words like Italians do: so don’t say at any time 2 or more “cappuccinos” but only 2 or more “cappuccino”. Another important rule is to don’t drink Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato after meal: as digestive you have to drink café macchiato or espresso.
Forks for spaghetti
The trick is to take a small part of the spaghetti on the border of the dish and to roll this part of spaghetti without the others. If you want you can make use of a spoon, too. But use under no circumstances a knife!
South Tyrol is a region of high cuisine. Because of that, please don’t ask for ketchup if you order venison dishes or precious fish. Putting ketchup on chips and Viennese Schnitzel is however okay.
