My elderly mother chose Rose Pistola for her birthday lunch on February 15. She loves the place and always gets the mussels in the iron skillet. When they were served, they didn't come with the usual utensils including a seafood fork and something to get them to her plate. When she asked our waiter (a very sour and unhelpful person generally) for some utensils, he told her that the mussels were never served with any utensils. When she said that they always were, he argued with her about it. He finally, very grudgingly got her a soup spoon to use to serve them. What a jerk! I should have asked to see the manager about it, but I didn't. I'm not saying the customer is always right, but would it have killed this waiter to get her the proper serving utensils??? This experience left a bad taste in my mouth, and we will probably not return to RP again.
