The Italian restaurant also received seven infractions, half of which were related to the hand-washing station, plus failing "to ensure facility surface cleaned as necessary," and "use dirty cloth for cleaning food contact surface." 

They also received three minor infractions including the failure "to ensure food handler in food premise protects against contamination by hair."
