The pizzeria in the movie is L' Antica Pizzeria da Michele, located at Via Cesare Sersale in Naples, Italy.
Julia Roberts invited her friend Garry Marshall to direct the film, but Marshall declined because he was unwilling to travel outside America to the locations where the film takes place. However, during the meet Marshall offered Roberts a role in Valentine's Day (2010) (on which he was working), which she accepted. This, in turn, allowed Ryan Murphy to step in as director.

The old man in white, seated behind Julia Roberts in the pizzeria, is Antonio Condurro, grandson of Michele Condurro, founder of the pizzeria.
