In North Carolina, an upscale Italian restaurant has tabooed all children under 5 years old. In January, the owner of Caruso’s, Pasquale Caruso, matured distressed when a couple refused to turn down the volume of a meeting their daughter was playing on the family’s iPad. That’s when they begged the family to leave and consequently instated the controversial rule.
A manager at Caruso’s, Yoshi Nunez, act as agent for c demand to The Washington Post about the incident that started it all. “They were knock over, but they didn’t seem to care about what the other patrons thought.” Adding, “We tried to be nice about the situation, but we’re here to inhale care of customers and we can’t tell a parent how to control their kids.”
Nunez stood on to say that the staff fully supports the decision. “Banning children has often been a topic in the industry and every owner says, ‘I wish I could do it.’ Our P has the full support of the staff. We work here to make a living, too, and we forward our owner 100 percent,” he said.
Although the restaurant’s employees endure the rule, the reaction from diners has been mixed. On Yelp, one reviewer catalogued, “No kids? Weren’t the owners once children who went with their facetiousmaters to restaurants? Did those restaurants have a no-kid policy?” On the other pass on, a different reviewer applauded the decision and said, “We will definitely produced here for a fancy date night!”
Despite the controversy, Nunez pronounced the ban has actually helped business and claimed there has been a noticeable improve in reservations and customers.
