If I’m in a restaurant,Bar,pizzeria... I want to take-away or take away the leftovers,how to say it in italia?If I want to eat in the restaurant,how to say?

And when I walk into a shop,the shop assistant usually asks me a word but I don’t know the meaning,when she or he says it in English,maybe it’s “can I help you?”,so how to say it in Italia??

Thanks a lot!!!!!!

Hi Iona, my lecturer taught me to say, "prendere qualcosa da portare via" (to take/have something to take out/away). There is however another term for this but I forgot. In general they would understand "da portare via". Because I tried that when I was in Italy. If you want to eat in the restaurant, I would say "prendere or mangiare qua". Can I help you would most likely be "posso aiutarla?". However some storekeeper would also say "desidera?", meaning would you like to buy something/ desire to buy Hope that helps! :)
