Plot summary

What is Little Italy movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Little Italy" movie plot summary.

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, a feud developed between Nikki's father Sal (Adam Ferrara) and Leo's father Vince (Gary Basaraba) causing their pizza business to deteriorate. This resulted in them respectively founding their own restaurants next door to each other, which in turn causes Nikki to leave the family to go to London to study cooking. Then, Chef Corinne temporarily gives Nikki a break for two weeks to give time for her to work on a menu for the upcoming restaurant.
Upon arriving home in Toronto, Nikki meets Leo at the bar and they drunkenly play soccer in a midst of a thunderstorm. The next day, she is welcomed by her family on her arrival. Vince, Leo and others are later arrested for lacing the pizza of their competition with marijuana. Leo and Nikki later get together, after riding around the town, reliving their childhood memories.
Nikki receives a call from Corinne, reminding her that she needs the menu in a few days, otherwise she will promote another chef. Struggling, Nikki expresses her regrets to Leo. Meanwhile, their respective grandparents, Franca and Carlo, become engaged (as 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.
Franca and Carlo arrange a dinner for the families. During the dinner they announce their engagement, causing Sal and Vince to begin exchanging insults. Vince proposes entering a pizza competition against Sal saying that whoever loses will "go out" from "Little Italy". When they are reminded they are banned from the competition because of that competition from years ago, they decide to have Nikki and Leo enter the competition. Nikki initially refuses to compete, and again she and Leo start arguing about who let who win in soccer when they were kids. When Nikki says that Leo won every time because she let him win, Leo says, "Yeah, like you let me win last night," alluding to them sleeping together. She slaps him and storms out in anger.
