B.W. raves in August 1997, "Rose Pistola was wonderful! Didn't have reservations and walked in and got seated immediately. Had
outstanding meal, great service and ideas I have already imitated in my kitchen. Their Heirloom tomato salad, gnocchi with calamari sauce and my favorite Summer
Pudding were outstanding..."
Rose Pistola is highly recommended and very popular so make sure to make reservations well in advance or consider visiting at an off hour.
Andy's rating is an "A-" for a great restaurant but an elitist air.
Rose Pistola also features live music, mostly jazz, on most nights. Call for details.
