Movie Info

This witty (and taste-tempting) made-for-cable updating of "Romeo and Juliet"--minus the bloodshed!-- takes place in Verona, New Jersey, where two families, bitter rivals since their origins in Italy, are in charge of the town's two most popular pizza parlors. Upon returning to Verona from college, Gina Prestolani (Shiri Appleby) is informed by her domineering dad Lou (Michael Badalucco) that, not only is she obliged to enter the family business, but he has also picked out her future husband! But Gina's heart already belongs to Joe Montebello (Eyal Podell), a talented pizza chef--and of course, the son of Lou's bitter enemy Vinnie Montebello (Dan Hedaya). This star-crossed romance is further complicated when the animosity between the Prestolanis and the Montebellos is amplified by the efforts of both families to expand their businesses. A near-tragedy involving everyone concerned proves to have a most therapeutic effect in the final moments of Pizza My Heart, which first aired July 24, 2005 on the ABC Family Channel.

Set in Verona, New Jersey.... this was an adorable, modern day Romeo & Juliet story.... set where else? But two boisterous Italian families' competing pizzerias! :-)
