Storyline

Young adults Nikki Angioli and Leo Campo were staunch competitors and best friends growing up in the Little Italy neighborhood of Toronto. Their respective fathers, friends Sal Angioli and Vince Campo, ran Pizza Napoli, which made the best pizza in the neighborhood due to the combination of Nikki's paternal nona Franca Angioli's secret marinara sauce, and Leo's paternal nono Carlo Campo's secret thin crust pizza dough recipe. While Leo has stayed in Toronto working part-time at his father's pizzeria with the secret hopes of one day opening his own pizzeria, Nikki, who loved Leo while they were growing up, ran off to London five years ago hoping never to return to Toronto to get away from her past, which includes Leo himself, who she believes has turned into a ladies man solely trying to put notches in his bedpost, and Sal and Vince now in a feud of an unspecified nature following they winning best pizza in Little Italy several years ago, each subsequently having opened competing ...

Why the negative reviews it's great!
26 September 2018 | by knightrider-ch90-168-8385See all my reviews

It's cheesy,corny as hell and comedic just like the old romantic comedies.It's about time they went back to old school,who want's these so called dark comedies there depressing. Take a holiday from real life and watch this light hearted romantic comedy. I'm really surprised by all the negative reviews, maybe they like watching depressing movies. Or maybe I just like cheesy like my Pizza's. I really wasn't expecting this film to be so funny and entertaining it really brightened up my day. You can always tell why a comedy is funny by the short clips at the credits of the actors having fun making the film. If they have fun making it,it's always more fun to watch. Romantic comedy of the year for me. Loved it more please! Like another reviewer said eat pizza whilst watching it. Have fun!
