An Italian coffee shop owner is in hot water after being fined $1,050 for failing to display the cost of a $2.12 espresso.

義大利一家咖啡店老闆因為未標示一杯2.12美元的濃縮咖啡價格而惹上麻煩,被罰款1050美元。

The owner of the Ditta Artigianale cafe in Florence has been punished by police after a customer reported him at the end of April for not advertising his prices as legally required.

4月底一名顧客檢舉佛羅倫斯Ditta Artigianale咖啡店沒有依照法律要求標示價目後,該店老闆遭警方處罰。

Inspector Leonardo Magnolfi, of Florence local police, told CNN Thursday that a male customer reported the cafe for not displaying the price of the coffee behind the counter - as law dictates.

佛羅倫斯當地警方督察梅諾菲週四向美國有線電視新聞網(CNN)說,一名男性顧客檢舉這家咖啡店,沒有按照法律規定,在櫃台後方公布咖啡的價格。

Police followed up the complaint and fined the shop $1,050 euros after verifying that the price was indeed absent.
