Bar Pitti Owner on Da Silvano Feud: Eh, Whatever

By

Writing about the long-running feud between the owners of Da Silvano and Bar Pitti, Joshua David Stein gets an earful from Silvano Marchetto. Silvano describes how he hired Giovanni Bastardo Tognozzi as a waiter in the late eighties, then canned him for taking too long to set a table, and then rehired him only because he thought he had gone from being irrational to normal. Of course, after they opened Bar Pitti together, the friends ended up having a falling out that Stein spends 2,500 words documenting. So what does Tognozzi have to say about the matter? First, I am tired of talking about Silvano, is all hell tell the Post. Second, whatever he says about me, I don't care. Were going to give Tognozzi the PR victory here.
