Regarding The Perfect Dinner, Bonito said: “I was inspired by a real news story. Reading the newspapers, I realized that there were many stories of restaurants in the center of Rome run by organized crime. Stefano Sardo who wrote the story tried to imagine a parallel reality of fiction. In the film, in fact, Carmine runs a restaurant that launders money."
