Settled in London and with their own delicious slice of home in the form of Beppi's restaurant, "Little Italy," the Martinelli's are a typical Italian family—fighting, eating, and loving in equal measure. Now, Pieta's sister Addolorata is getting married. Since Pieta is a bridal designer it falls to her to make the wedding gown. But she is distracted by a series of family mysteries. Why is her father feuding with another Italian in the neighborhood? Why is her mother so faded and sad? And could the man she's always held a torch for really be getting married to someone else? As Pieta stitches and beads her sister's wedding gown she uncovers the secrets that have made her family what it is and that stand between her and happiness. The Italian Wedding is a feast of food and love. It's about discovering who your family really are. And who you really want to be.
