by Tuesday, February 22, 2011

The news gave the Tg5 Cristina Parodi of 20 last Sunday: no crisis at the restaurant for Italians, they spend per head well 1.100 euros per year to dine away from home, per capita spending highest in the rest of Europe. Then the Parodi launches service and already more than a restaurant discussing pizzerias. But, Dear Parodi and dear Tg5, 1.100 euros per year are really so many when dining in a restaurant serve a minimum average, per head, among the 40 and 50 euro? And if you spend now pizzeria thirty… But let's do a quick calculation: 1.100 euro divided by 30 euro, make an average of 3 exit at dinner a month, But if we begin to consider spending a single but also pays for another person (girlfriend/or, wife, husband…) We arrive at an outing per month. Regardless of whether it comes out carrying the children.

I wonder how they can make all the gourmet restaurants to survive, and also many other lower-level exercises…

Says the service Tg5: In short, the crisis for the Italians at the restaurant there is… Mah.

The entire Eu turnover and its food expenses incurred outside the four walls of the last ten years and equal to 11 billions – continue Tiso – the 95 per cent and’ Italian. The European average and’ instead of the 30 per cent. The result of these analyses and’ probably also the result of lower prices of Italian restaurateurs, below the European average.
