Synopsis

Suspense and a pinch of romance are the ingredients of The Perfect Dinner, a delicious comedy about a Neopolitan mafioso and a chef who cross paths in Rome.

Carmine (Salvatore Esposito, Gomorrah series) is a Neapolitan mafioso who isn’t cut out for the criminal life. Under the protection of his boss Pasquale (Gianfranco Gallo), Carmine is sent north to run a money laundering operation through a restaurant. He simply needs to defrost frozen meals, issue receipts and dinner is served.

But everything changes when he meets Consuelo (Greta Scarano), a chef who always pursues perfection and dreams of winning a Michelin star. Carmine hires her and decides to transform the establishment into a high-end restaurant. Could the love for food and dream of winning a Michelin star give them both a second chance?

Based on a story by Stefano Sardo (also directs With or Without You), The Perfect Dinner is a delectable immersion in the world of haute cuisine that will leave you eager to get in the kitchen.
