    Rose Pistola – Satisfying and Easy, May 17, 2000
    By A Customer
    This review is from: The Rose Pistola Cookbook: 140 Italian Recipes from San Francisco’s Favorite North Beach Restaurant (Hardcover)

    Reed Heron is a successful restaurant owner in San Francisco who constantly packs the house with quality food. It’s a place where men like to go and women like to be seen. The same goes for his cookbook. These are easy to prepare recipes that give lots of interesting tastes to satisfy your need for comfort food on a cold winter night or some grazing food for that hot summer day. Don’t miss trying the Tomato Bread Soup or the Terriorized Steak. This is real food for real people, not one of those glitzy books that look good on the coffee table that you never use because they take too much time or too many ingredients. Enjoy and don’t forget to visit the restaurant when you’re in San Francisco.

    Things that are cool and Italian: Ferraris, Dean Martin, Italian Cooking and wristbands.

    You cannot really buy a Ferrari on Amazon and you can’t be Dean Martin as far as I know. Yes, I realize wristbands aren’t Italian but you CAN buy them on Amazon however they will be nothing without this cookbook.

    I have had the pleasure of dining at this little gem in San Francisco. The food there is great, the wine list is impressive and the experience is better than good. What I like about this cookbook is you learn to make delicious meals with a few simple ingredients.

    People are impressed when I bring out the salt rock fish and break open the salt to pull out a perfectly cooked fish. They rave about my mussels and even my salad gets thumbs up from every primate with opposable thumbs.

    If you like cooking and you enjoy Italian food then I recommend this to you. If you don’t like either of those things then I recommend you get with the program, buddy.
