Meanwhile the owner of a kosher restaurant in Rome’s historic Ghetto quarter dismissed a row over Mr Zuckerberg not leaving a tip when he and his new wife ate there during their two-day stay in the capital.
Umberto Pavoncello said the failure to leave a tip for a lunch which cost 32 euros (£26) was of no consequence and said he was considering renaming one of the restaurant’s signature dishes – deep-fried courgette flowers – after Mr Zuckerberg.
Should be zucchini of course, it being Italy, but my they are delicious. Still one of my memories of having lived over there as a child. The flower (after the little bud for the zucchini itself has started to grow, of course,) in a very light batter (similar to tempura?) and then fried in olive oil.
