Staff: Hello, Gino's.

Jamie: Hi, I called earlier to book a table for four and I was wondering if I can make it for six instead?

Staff: Ah, what name was it?

Jamie: It's Jamie.

Staff: Table for four at half past seven. So you want to change it to 6 o'clock?

Jamie: No, sorry. Can I make it for six people?

Staff: Oh, I see. Sorry! That shouldn't be a problem. I can move you to a bigger table but it will be nearer the kitchen. Is that OK?

Jamie: No problem. Is it possible to change the time as well? Make it a little bit later?

Staff: Ah ... yeah, we can. Is eight OK for you?

Jamie: Perfect, thanks!

Staff: Lovely. See you tomorrow, then.

Jamie: Thanks! Bye!

Staff: Thanks. Ciao!

Well. I'm originally from Viet Nam, so my favorite is traditional Viet Nam meal. Therefore, I always take my family to the Vietnamese restaurant. On the other hand, all kind of cuisines in my country is well known in the world. Most of tourists are keen on tasting them. That is reason why I proudly say to my country. Moreover, we have a number of fabulous sightseeing which are extremely in the world. If you come there one time, I ensure that you are never forget about my country. It is a amazing place which is worth for traveling.

My favorite restrain is Mama Roma. It is Italian food. I like paste, It is so delicious.

My favourite restaurant is Chinese food, but I prefer my type of food which is Ecuadorian, I have been to many countries and I have tried many delicious dishes and I have not found anything similar.

Honestly I don't have a favourite type of restaurant because i don't go a lot of restaurants but i like to go a restaurants when are homemade food and are vegetarian food ('cause i'm vegatarian).
Also I like a restaurants when there are a beautiful, comfortable and good service!
