Don't you hate it when some philistine comes into your Italian restaurant and orders, "Brush-etta as an appetizer and the no-key for my entree"?

Ding dang. Bruschetta (pronounced broo-sket-ah) and gnocchi (pronounced nyawk-kee) are two of the most mispronounced menu items, according to Eat24, the online delivery and takeout website and mobile service.

Also on the list are espresso, chipotle, beignet, sriracha, quinoa, gyro, quesadilla, and pho.
