Plot summary

In a restaurant six waiters are abandoned by their senior boss (Ciccio Ingrassia) who goes to the hospital for an illness. Salvatore Azzaro: the new owner, an old Roman hick, is going to give a cut to the staff and to renew the restaurant's decor; however he decides to make a bet. If the six waiters can serve him well during the evening celebration of his wedding anniversary, Salvatore Azzaro don't lay off them. But the task is difficult because the waiters hate each other and their customers to be served rather than human beings are utterly evil and bad manners.
