Asking where something is.

My book tells me "Scusi, to attract the persons attention, then for instance a telephone, "Scusi sinore, il telefono, per favore?" but wouldn't Italians normally say something before il telefono, like something for "do you know where" etc, or is that about right, what I've read in my book?

    Hi, it depends, for example if you are in a bar you can ask "Scusi, il telefono per favore?" because it' s sure that there is one. But if you are looking for a phone outside, you ask "scusi, sa dov'è un telefono/dove posso trovare un telefono?".

    1. Stay on the topic of the first post in each thread. If you wish to talk about a related subject, open a new thread.
    2. Ask about only one topic in each thread. If you have more than one question, open a thread for each of them.
