He may be worth $19 billion, but Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, 28, has been branded a Scrooge in Rome when it comes to tipping.
Lunching out with his wife, Priscilla Chan, 27, on their honeymoon, Zuckerberg ran up a not-so-massive bill of 32 euros (R2,238) at the restaurant, Nonna Betta, this week, and he reportedly did not care to leave a tip.
The couple stuck to antipasti of deep-fried artichoke and just one dish of sea bass ravioli, washed down with water and a pot of tea. The restaurant’s owner, Umberto Pavoncello, however, defended Zuckerberg from the barbs, claiming the billionaire was “in a hurry”. “They were really in love, eating from the same plate of ravioli,” he said.
