Two brothers, Alex and Louis Thomas, open a small restaurant in New Jersey with their mother, Rita. On their opening night, Louis sleeps with the daughter of a notorious and very ruthless mafia boss, who burns down their home and restaurant, forcing the Thomas family to flee to Los Angeles. There, Alex and Louis find work at a prestigious Beverly Hills restaurant, where they both fall in love with the same woman, Andrea, the beautiful daughter of the restaurant's wealthy owner. This sets off a chain of events and now their lives will never be the same again. As the intrigue mounts, and the mafia is hot on their trail, Alex and Louis are faced with added danger, as the bonds of brotherly love are threatened by betrayal. Written by
Not bad....not bad at all. Interesting underlying plot with enough twists to keep my attention. Some great scenes of San Diego (for those who recognize our city) and some interesting takes on Italian family culture (for those of us who are Italian). Lead actors were hot. But, needed to see more of Lucio (Alan Ursillo), the heavy who was finally killed in the pool scene, halfway through the series. He was really a great heavy, and the only mobster I have ever seen on TV (or in real life) who shot a gun left-handed. Love the realism there. Will be looking for him in other productions. Hope the series has a DVD production soon and will be looking for summer replays.
