Mark Zuckerberg stole some time away from the Facebook headquarters to celebrate his recent nuptials with new wife, Priscilla Chan.

The newlyweds, who tied the knot during a surprise ceremony in California May 20 after being together for nearly a decade, jetted to Italy to enjoy the sights and sounds of Rome for their honeymoon.

One evening, the pair found themselves in a comical situation while dining out at celebrity-favorite restaurant Pierluigi.

"I showed them my photo of Jesse Eisenberg," the restaurant's owner, Lorenzo Lisi, tells Us Weekly. (Eisenberg portrayed the Facebook founder in the Oscar-nominated drama The Social Network in 2010.) "We had a laugh because everyone who sees the picture at the restaurant says 'Hey that's the guy from Facebook.'"
