Tipping..at what cost?

Yesterday I had lunch in Palermo Alto. The resturant was a little up scale and pricy but the food and service was good. When I received the bill I notice a charge (service de mesa) What is this? In France there is (service compri) tip included or (service no compri) tip not included, ???????????????

It is not a tip. Basically, it is a charge for what they have to do to prepare a table for you (put on clean napkins, replace bread etc). So, you are supposed to pay tip on top of that.
