Restaurateur (Stanley Tucci from The Devil Wears Prada) has one last chance to turn round the fortunes of his struggling Italian restaurant and rescue it from bankruptcy. His plan is to serve an Italian banquet for legendary crooner, Louis Prima together with the great and the good of his New Jersey clientele.

The trouble is, he’s having to contend with a wily rival restaurateur (Ian Holm); juggle his beautiful mistress (Isabella Rossellini) and statuesque girlfriend (Minnie Driver) and also persuade his single-minded, perfectionist brother to prepare and cook the greatest meal of their lives.

One of the films in the Film and Food pantheon, Big Night (1996) is a big-hearted movie about family, friendship and fettuccine; it also happens to be one of the funniest and most profound movies about the highs and lows of working in a restaurant.

So, do come and savour its many flavours, accompanied with two courses of delicious Italian fayre, Clavelshay-style; a movie quiz and introduction from MovieMail reviewer Alexander Ballinger. Salute!
