Little Italy

DIRECTOR: Donald Petrie

Starring Hayden Christensen Emma Roberts Alyssa Milano Danny Aiello Jane Seymour Andrea Martin



Love blossoms in the cobblestoned streets of Little Italy when Nikki (Emma Roberts), a beautiful young chef-in-training, begins dating her childhood friend Leo (Hayden Christensen), a pizza cook with dreams of opening his own restaurant. The only problem is, their fathers own competing pizza restaurants directly next door to each other - and are mortal enemies! Complicating matters further, their mothers are secret best friends, and their grandparents are carrying out a clandestine romance of their own. When their fathers find out, tempers rage hotter than wood-fired pizza ovens - they decide Little Italy isn’t big enough for the both of them. A wager is laid pitting “Team Sal” vs. “Team Vince” in a pizza cook-off that will see the loser leaving town for good. In this modern-day retelling of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” in the vein of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” and “Love Actually,” LITTLE ITALY is a multi-generational love story which shows that the love of food and family aren’t just important - they’re everything!
