Help me to name that film

I am looking for the title of a movie I saw 3 or 4 years ago on a pay channel.

The location of the movie is the East coast, time is 50's or 60's.

The story is about two Italian brothers freshly arrived in the US. They own a restaurant. The elder is a real chef.

They offer real Italian food in their restaurant, ie a standard meal is during two hours with douzen of antipasti, two plates of fresh pastas, veal,... If you know Italy you know what I am talking about.

Unfortunatly it does not fit the American taste. So the chef is really upset to see the Americans not liking his food as they ask for burger instead of risoto. The youngest brother is more pragmatic and is happy to offer junk food as long as they make money.

At the end of the movie they are organising a real feast in order to raise money and save the restaurant. So during 30 minutes you see all the finest Italian food on screen.

I do not really remember the end of the movie. But if I remember correctly the chef goes back to Italy.

I believe that you are thinking of "Big Night". With Stanley Tucci and Tony Shaloub. Great Flick.
