The Scopa Italian Roots restaurant is an Italian-American dining place by chef Antonia Lofaso in California.

We waited for 3 hours to eat at your restaurant. @chefantonia Your waiter Joshua Silverman was extremely rude to my mother, bordering racist. This isn't okay, Ananya said in another tweet, in which she tagged Lofaso.

Very shocking absolutely ridiculous behaviour by @ScopaRestaurant. You have no right to treat any of your customers like this, she said.

I have never experienced anything of this sort. Racism exists and is real. Unbelievable. @ScopaRestaurant, their son Aryaman Birla also tweeted.
