Isabella Donati - Isabella is a shining young romantic, oft-spoiled by her doting father. She is the main singer at Dante's Ristorante Italiano (the other characters do chime in every once in a while).
Olga Donati - Dante's fourth wife, Olga represents the power behind the Donati throne. Don't put anything past her.
Virgil Donati - Virgil is the least intelligent Donati. He is a charming man, handsome and incredibly nice. But, dumb.
Carlo - Carlo, the restaurant's assistant waiter, is hardworking and loyal. Keep any eye on him, however-- he has a big secret.
Chef Bruno - Bruno is the Head Chef at Dante's Ristorante Italiano, and a great lover of mushrooms; his tomato truffle sauce (traditionally served over pasta) is famous in fungus communities all across Europe. Chef Bruno is bidding on the two-pound truffle himself, no matter the cost!
