So if I'm in a Western Euopean resteraunt, how do I get water with out the fizz.
I tried for 5 days in Italy and France and could never get it. Just plain tap water.

"Soda" is from "bicarbonate of soda" that was used to give drinks their fizz before direct carbonation was introduced, hence "soda water". "Pop" comes from the noise of removing the cork from a bottle of fizzy drink.... Horses for courses.
