"Sembra Buonissimo"

I said "sembra buonissimo" at a restaurant and was told this was a rude thing to say. It was presented in lesson 5.2 as "it looks very good." Could someone please clarify? I wouldn't want anyone else to be accused of being rude. I am currently in the Veneto region.

Hi Ann R17, What a person says and what another person hears is not always the same. So, here is a possible answer. When you said "sembra buonissimo", if the person heard "sembro buonissimo", then what you said is "I look very good". Other than that, I don't know. Perhaps when Maria responds, she may be able to clear it all up. Ciao, Don O

Ciao Ann, the sentence "sembra buonissimo/a" is correct when speaking about food. I'm not sure what the person has understood... I hope this helps. Have you been to Venice yet? Buone vacanze :) ciao
