As we wait impatiently for the new season of Emily in Paris, Netflix viewers are raving about a new romantic comedy series set in Italy. Watch the adorable trailer below:
From Scratch is filled with gorgeous views, adorable original Fiat 500 cars, mouth watering food and, of course, lots of love.
Zoe Saldaña stars in the limited eight-part series, which follows the story of an artist who finds romance with a chef in Italy when she embarks on a life-changing journey of love and loss across cultures and continents.
Viewers have have taken to social media to share their obsession with the new series as they shower the story and cast with praise.
"Anyone else watching From Scratch on Netflix?!? I’m OBSESSED," one woman tweeted.
A second fan said the show left them feeling emotional. "From Scratch on Netflix is so good. Finished the entire show in one sitting and cried multiple times. You’ll feel every emotion. Love, happiness, sadness, pain, even anger. Loved it #FromScratch."
A third viewer gave the series a very impressive score. "From Scratch on Netflix is hands down the best limited series I’ve watched this year. I laughed, smiled and cried," they shared. "I highly recommend it. 10/10!"
While someone highlighted the 'complex' stories in the show. They wrote: "From Scratch on Netflix is an absolutely beautiful and complex love story. Not a rom com. Two people falling in love. Family bonds . Sibling bonds. Father/son drama. Wounds of divorce. Cultural differences. Anti-blackness . Illness. Navigating adoption. Accepting loss."
Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar star Zoe has swapped space for the beautiful scenes in Florence, as she plays Amy, a fish out of water American student studying in Italy in 2000.
She meets, and eventually falls in love with, a chef named Lino while she studies art.
Amy finds herself in a love triangle, as she starts dating a stylish gallery owner Giancarlo (Giacomo Gianniotti) even though she’s more drawn to Lino (Eugenio Mastrandrea).
Her family doesn’t approve of her decision to delay her law studies at Georgetown Law School for an art escapade in Europe.
Her attorney dad Hershel (Keith David) isn’t best pleased and her sister Zora (Danielle Deadwyler) keeps in regular contact.
Created by Attica Locke and Tembi Locke and based on the latter’s memoir of the same name, the film is a romance which spans years to depict an unlikely couple who share a lot of passion.
So, what are you waiting for? Next stop, Italy!
From Scratch is available to binge on Netflix now.
