Restaurant's unruly children sign starts Facebook debate

National News // Jan. 15, 2020

A restaurant just inside Italy on the Graubünden border is causing a social media spat after the owner put up a sign saying unruly children will be sent to the kitchen to do the washing up with duct tape over their mouths.

While the sign is clearly tongue-in-cheek – the point is serious says the owner, Gabriele Berbenni.

He says children run around the restaurant, make a lot of noise and generally cause a disturbance.

The debate rages on the restaurant’s Facebook page. Some are praising the owner for making a stand – others say it’s scandalous.

But it seems its working. Berbenni says many families have read the sign and turned around – the restaurant is now far more peaceful.
