Little Italy (2018) Trailer - Available In Theaters and On Demand September 21.
Nikki (Emma Roberts) and Leo (Hayden Christensen) both grow up in Toronto's Little Italy neighborhood, where their families are running a pizza business together. However, the verbal conflict between Nikki's father Sal (Adam Ferrara) and Leo's father Vince (Gary Basaraba) has caused their pizza business to deteriorate, thus resulting in them respectively founding their own pizza businesses next door to each other, which in turn results in Nikki leaving the family to go to London to study cooking. However, Chef Corinne temporarily gives Nikki a break for two weeks to give time for her to work on a cooking menu for the upcoming cooking exhibit.
Upon arriving home in Toronto, Nikki meets Leo at the bar and they drunkenly play soccer in a midst of the thunderstorm. The next day, she is welcomed by her family on her arrival. Vince, Leo and other crew are later arrested for lacing the pizza with marijuana during the party but they are released shortly after. Leo later forms a relationship with Nikki and they sleep together after riding around the town, reliving their childhood memories. Nikki receives a call from Corinne, saying that she wants a cooking menu, otherwise she will promote another chef. Struggling, Nikki expresses her regrets to Leo and confronts him for focusing on soccer instead of the pizza business. Meanwhile, their respective grandparents, Franca and Carlo, become engaged (due to the fact that they have been in love with each other for years and were never rivals from the start). Franca finally agrees to marry Carlo despite a promise from her late husband not to remarry.
