In modern day Verona, New Jersey, two Italian competitive families, whose rivalries extends back to their ancestry in Italy, run the two top pizza parlors in town.

Gina Prestolani (Shiri Appleby) is informed by her domineering dad (Michael Badalucco) that she is must enter into the family business, and that he�s already picked out a husband for her. This news doesn�t sit well for Gina, since this being a modern day twist of Romeo and Juliet, her heart is with Joe Montebello (Eyal Podell), a talented pizza chef and, of course, son of Vinnie Montebello (Dan Hedaya).

To add fuel to the fire, things get escalated between the Prestolanis and Montebellos when each family attempts to expand their business.

This is a film suitable for the entire family, as it is bereft of any of Shakespeare�s bloody scenes.
