10 Classic Italian Food Movie Scenes
A countdown of the best Italian food movie moments
Italy – home of the Cosa Nostra, the Vatican and now, Snooki. Despite anyone's take on violence, religion or hatred for anything New Jersey, we can all agree that Italian food has a place in almost everyone’s heart. The addition of cheese, tomato sauce (or gravy) and pasta equates to a more-than-acceptable outcome every time. Whether it’s the sense memory that takes over at first sight of a beloved dish or the vibrant reds and yellows popping off screen — the world of cinema has taken advantage of the world’s soft spot for the likes of spaghetti and meatballs. And thus, the countdown is born.
- Movies. Not TV.
- Cannot be a scene which I’ve used in a previous countdown (Goodfellas prison scene, Defending Your Life fake restaurant, Lady and the Tramp etc.)
- Pizza counts. Even without any supporting players, pizza is Italian food for the basis of this countdown.
