Cesare al Casaletto

We are in London about to leave for Rome on Monday. I would like to eat at Cesare al Casaletto on Tuesday. However, every time we call for reservations we get an answering machine with a long message. We don't speak enough Italian to understand.

Should we just speak English asking for what we want, or try in Italian to leave message requesting reservation?

Thanks in advance

  1. The message says they are closed till the 17th (sunday) and gives two cell phone numbers "for urgent messages". Do not leave a message and do not worry about calling the numbers either (that is why I am not writing them here) - call on Monday (around lunch or dinner times) to make your reservation for tuesday. You can then speak English, but slowly and clearly :)
