We were able to buy an upgrade, and we loved it! The economy plus seating was very comfy & the food was great. The staff was very helpful and professional. However the aeroplane itself was very old! The chairs were torn and the pockets, on the back of each seat, were left hanging because they don't stick anymore. It was such a shame and a big contrast compared to the Etihad Airlines flight that we had taken right before this one. We love Alitalia but they definitely need to renovate their planes.
