As an apprentice pasta maker in Modena, Italy, Dev has made new friends and has improved his culinary skills over the past three months, but has not quite moved on from his ex-girlfriend Rachel, who is in Japan. For his birthday, he had booked a reservation for one at a restaurant, but offers to share his table with a visiting British woman named Sara who had botched her reservation date. The two have a great day together, and Dev gets her number. However, his phone is stolen, so he and his pasta instructor's son try to track down the thief. They eventually spot him, but he no longer has the phone. Dev is discouraged that he may never see Sara again. After his Italian friends celebrate his birthday and present some gifts, Dev sits alone in his apartment and texts Rachel.
