Chef Primo (Tony Shalhoub) and businessman Secondo (Stanley Tucci) are immigrant brothers from Italy who open their dream restaurant in New Jersey. However, Primo’s authentic food is too unfamiliar for the locals’ tastes, and the restaurant is struggling. When bandleader Louis Prima is scheduled to appear at their restaurant, the two brothers put all of their efforts into one dinner, which will ultimately decide the fate of their restaurant.
