A Chinese restaurant has allegedly been serving human FEET to its customers in Italy.
The restaurant was accused of serving the decomposed feet after a waiter posted a grim picture, allegedly taken in its kitchen, on social media.
The photo shows what looks like two severed human feet in a blue bowl.
The allegations were made after a diner from Slovenia went to a restaurant in Padua, northern Italy, and asked for the Chinese delicacy of bear paws.
The waiter, who was not named in reports, claims his picture of human feet were the ‘bear paws’ that were later served to the Slovenian and his friends.
After spotting the disturbing picture on social media, another Italian customer reported it to the authorities.
Police and food standards officials inspected the restaurant and found 55lbs of meat and frozen fish of questionable origin.

Dirt and grease was reportedly also found all over the refrigerators, on the floors and on the oven and packages of frog legs and crab meat were reportedly out of date.
A forensic pathologist claims the feet appear to be human but said they are still investigating the image’s origin.
