Trivia

The woman singing in the competing restaurant is played by Christine Tucci, who is co-Writer and co-Director Stanley Tucci's sister.
Shot over a period of thirty-five days.
Stanley Tucci co-wrote the film, because he wanted a decent part for himself.
Stanley Tucci, who co-wrote and co-directed this movie, and Tony Shalhoub have worked together several times, including Tucci's follow-up film, The Impostors (1998), and on Shalhoub's series Monk (2002).
Primo, Tony Shalhoub's name in this movie, translates as "First". Secondo, Stanley Tucci's character, translates as "Second". This relates to their birth order in the film. It is briefly referenced in the Cadillac scene, when Secondo meets Bob the car salesman (Campbell Scott). (Additionally, Shalhoub's character in The Impostors (1998) was named Voltri, "First Mate", a possible reference to Primo.)
