Have you ever felt annoyed by the tantrums made by naughty kids when you’re trying to talk to your friends or enjoy your favorite spaghetti in a restaurant? If so, then this restaurant will be the perfect spot for you. The New Jersey-based Italian restaurant, named Nettie’s House of Spaghetti, has recently taken to social media to announce that children under 10 would no longer be allowed to dine in the establishment.
Located in the area of Tinton Falls in New Jersey, Nettie’s is a family-friendly Italian restaurant. Recently, the establishment shared a post across social media to inform potential customers about their new policy, which they’ll implement from the 8th of March, the day the restaurant will reopen after winter break. In the post, the restaurant said they really love children, but several incidents prompted the restaurant to take this particular decision for the sake of their business moving forward. They needed to take control of the situation, which involved noise levels, cleaning up crazy messes in rounds, cramping up high chairs, and the liability of kids running around the restaurant.
The post from the restaurant was met with mixed reviews. While some people have praised the decision for being justified, others criticized it, referring to it as totally unfair. One user, another restaurant worker, said in the same line that nowadays, most kids are out of control while their parents are oblivious, and they all possess an unreal disregard for even common decency. Another user commented that, for this decision only, Nettie’s is going to be their favorite spot from now on. Contrary to these, there are also a few criticisms in the feedback. One user lashed out by saying that it’s completely illogical and awful to ban all the children, just because some parents don’t discipline their kids. Another user expressed their disappointment over the decision, as they were planning to check out the restaurant soon with their perfectly well-mannered nine-year-old.
