Gratuity TipsService charges are included in your restaurant bill, so you are not expected to tip. It is common practice, however, to leave a small amount. In bars, Italians will usually leave any small change as a tip, but this is by no means obligatory. Be aware that prices in Italian bars double (sometimes even triple) if you sit down. Tipping taxi drivers is not common practice, but your hotel porter will expect a little something.
