“Children and animals are forbidden” it looks like a memory of the movie Life is Beautiful but instead it is what the owner of a ristorante he decided on his place. The place in question is located in Prati, in via Fabio Massimo, in the historic district of the capital, and has a name: La Palapa.
It is not a provocation but one marketing choice well explained on the restaurant’s website: a decision that sparked a media fuss towards the local. In fact, on the high-profile site of La Palapa we can see what has just been stated, everything is declared in the restaurant policy.
The restaurant in Prati which prohibits entry to children and animals
“The La Palapa restaurant is a project of absolute excellence in the panorama of Italian catering, a flagship both for gastronomic tradition and for the tradition of hospitality“ you can read about the impact on the restaurant’s website. However when it comes to hospitality there is much to ponder.
Going to the Policy section of the restaurant, four mirrors will open: Children, Dresscode, Pets and Reservations.
If you click on Children, however, we read that “In the restaurant sector children are not allowed under the age of 14 “. While for dogs there is an absolute ban: “Pets are not allowed“.
Sui social there are those who have understood politics of the restaurant – which also reflects a type of place where dress code is required – but there is also who, on the other hand, did not take it well. Everyone is master of their own craft but maybe talk about tradition of hospitality it is not really appropriate to the place.
