I enjoyed the Italian words/phrases at the beginning of every chapter and the info provided. I grew up in NY and could relate to much of the culture of the family structure. Each generation caught my attention, the mother the most somehow. Even though it seems silly and a rom/com at times, I also felt it touched on generational differences and some important issues. So, yes I’d say keep it on the list.
