Oh Carla! This is fantastic!!
I love those American style restaurant! But living in Italy we haven't got those kind of places!!!
I've been in one like this in Malta, a very small island in the Mediterranean sea, where at the airport there is a restaurant called "Gateway Diner". The style is right the same one and on evening time, every hour, all the waiters start to dance with the music full on! It's really fun!
I have oone question for you!
Did they opened the restaurant just for you??? Could it be that when I want to shot places are so crowded??? LOL!
