Storyline

The Bianco and Rossi families of Yonkers have been feuding for years - over pizza! Those who prefer a tangy sauce go to Rossi's; those who like their crust thin and crispy go to Bianco's. When young Angela Rossi, armed with a newly minted associates degree in marketing from FIT, tries to help her father put the Bianco's out of business, pizza détente goes out the window. And when young doodle artist Tony Bianco agrees to help his father steal the secret of the Rossi's sauce to win the neighborhood pizza contest, pizza war - and a little star-crossed loving - follow.

Charm....... with a little grated cheese
24 March 2005 | by (42nd Street Memories) – See all my reviews

INGREDIENTS FOR MAKING "A TALE OF TWO PIZZAS":

Take (1) spoof of Shakespeare's 'Romeo & Juliet' (what if the Capulet and Montague families were in battle over a pizza recipe???)

Add a bunch of Italian seasoning (the credits read like a menu from Valentino's on Bronx River Road)

Add some Capicola ('Soprano' veterans Vincent Pastore and Frank Vincent hamming it up in a delightful way)

Mix in some fresh vegetables(Robin Paul and Conor Dubin are charming in the roles of the youngsters caught up in Great Pizza Wars)

And the parmigiana on this lasagna is the fine soundtrack with vocals by Freddy King plus fun & fitting animation that ties the whole thing up nicely.

An obvious labor of love from director Vinnie Sassone (you expected another name?) that delivers the film that you say "they don't make anymore". A fun, charming comedy in the style of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". Sit back, relax, have some fun, then go eat some pasta.
