Italian movie from late 1980’s

This movie was about a large Italian family who owned a restaraunt, I believe in England. I remember the little boy had a red- headed friend named Beetle. The grandfather of the family had been in the was and always dreamt of it. In the end he dies and you see him run into his mother’s arms, a child once again. Any ideas?
