Two immigrant brothers, Primo (Shalhoub) and Secondo (Tucci), realize their dream when they open Paradise, an Italian restaurant on the Jersey shore. But their dream will be short-lived if they don't fill seats. Their neighbor, Pascal (Holm), runs a successful restaurant (though his food doesn't compare to the culinary masterpieces offered at Paradise) and tells the brothers they can turn things around if they host (and impress) Louis Prima and his band for dinner. As they prepare for the big night, Primo and Secondo demonstrate their affection for each other and their passion for fine cuisine. Subtle and delightful.
