A wonderfully romantic and moving eight-part drama series that counts on a good cast, good scripts, and overall good production. Zoe Saldana is brilliant as the protagonist, bringing credibility to the character she portrays, and her life situation. The same can be said for Eugenio Mastrandrea in his role as Lino, the Italian chef.

The story is initially set in Florence, and many of the scenes are filmed there, which needless to say, is beautiful. Further into the story we are teleported to L.A., a wonderful change of scenery.

Our Opinion

A series that will captivate quite a few. A heartwarming story that is well produced, counting on a good script, and a solid cast. If you think this is anything like ‘Love in the Villa’ think again, for it is not. It does rely on stereotypes, although not with the comical take that we saw in the latter, as cultural differences is a central element in the premise, other than the love story, of course, and it is worth noting that its addressed with propriety.
