Picture this: You're trying to eat your spaghetti alla carbonara in peace when some damn at the next table knocks over the parmesan and then starts crying, and won't stop crying. You're obligated to politely smile at the apologizing parents, and continue as if there's not a nuclear meltdown happening in a booster seat.\n\nOR you could just eat at Marco Magliozzi's kid-free Italian restaurant. That is, if you're in Rome. \n\nLa Fraschetta del Pesce, a seafood restaurant owned by Marco Magliozzi in Rome, Italy, has banned kids under 5 years old from entering the eatery. The place already had an existing ban on highchairs and strollers, so this seems like the next, though much more drastic step, on the way to keeping the kid riff-raff out. Restaurant goers found a sign outside, cutting kiddos out for good. \n\nAccording to the images posted on Twitter, the sign reads as follows:\n \n\n"La Fraschetta del Pesce" es el ristorante romano donde los ni\u00f1os de 5 a\u00f1os no son bienvenidos. pic.twitter.com\/hyhLFWlEue\n\u2014 Pietro Spinetti (@elpieri) January 20, 2016\nMagliozzi does cite relatable reasons for initiating the ban, telling La Repubblica that kids these days lack manners and tend to run around upsetting things. Anyone who's been to Buca di Beppo for a pre-bedtime dinner can likely back Magliozzi up on that. The owner goes on to state that it's really the parents' fault for not educating their children on how to behave. Hmm. Punishing the kids for the parents' shortcomings. Sounds like Social Security! \n\nKid-banning aside, the place apparently serves up fresh, "ottimo pesce," and gets some pretty spectacular TripAdvisor reviews. You know, besides the ones yelling about the treatment of youngsters. \n\nThankfully, for Magliozzi, kids under 5 don't know how to use computers. YET. But man, when they do, those monosyllabic TripAdvisor reviews are gonna be something.\n\n\nSign up here for our daily Thrillist email, and get your fix of the best in food\/drink\/fun.\n\nKara King is a News Writer at Thrillist and has a growing fear of children.
