Hoodwinked: Restaurateur on Ramsay's 'Kitchen Nightmares' Was a Mobster

Peter "Peter Pasta" Pellegrino, formerly of the Babylon, New York, restaurant known as Peter’s Italian Restaurant, really is -- or was -- a gangster.

Peter "Peter Pasta" Pellegrino, formerly of the Babylon, New York, restaurant known as Peter’s Italian Restaurant, really is -- or was -- a gangster.
Peter Pasta, in the suit, shortly before a vendor's visit.

The once-promising Bonanno member, in an interview with Gangland News, which appeared after the Kitchen Nightmares episode aired, now calls himself a brokester. And the Bonanno family, with which he was once affiliated, has disowned him, as has the rest of New York's Cosa Nostra, according to FBI documents and an interview with Peter Pasta himself.

But before all that he appeared on an episode of Kitchen Nightmares in which he acted very much like the mobster he allegedly was trying to become around the time of filming. (See Peter's Italian Restaurant menu here.)

Back then Peter Pasta was an up-and-coming Bonanno associate who "earned" $15 grand a week bookmaking.




He owned two boats that he parked in a pricey nearby Babylon harbor called Great South Bay.

As Gangland News's Jerry Capeci wrote in 2011:

Today, like the battered and bruised Bonanno crime family that once propped him up, Pellegrino, 45, is just another... unemployed grunt looking for a job. Worse, last year, not long after his once booming restaurant, Peter Pasta’s Café on Main Street in Babylon shuttered, his father died. Oh, and the rest of his blood family, the Pellegrinos, have disowned him. His mob family, the Bonannos, have falsely labeled him “a rat,” with all its obvious nasty ramifications and ugly possibilities hanging over his head. 
Wait, it gets worse: Fox TV has been re-running the “Kitchen Nightmares” episode he did with bad-boy British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay in 2007 “that makes me look like a jerkoff and some kind of an animal, and worse,” moans Pellegrino. “It’s a real-life nightmare. It just ran again, on Friday or Saturday,” he said. 
“My father always used to tell me, ‘When you got cash, you’re a smash; when you’re broke, you’re a joke.’ That’s me now,” said Pellegrino, who agreed to speak to Gang Land about his plight because “nothing can happen to make life worse for me than it is right now.” 
The son of a Genovese family bookmaker, Pellegrino ignored his father’s advice to stay away from “the life.” Instead of seeking a legitimate life, said Pellegrino, he gravitated to the rival Bonanno family and in the 1980s hooked up with then-capo Salvatore Vitale.
A March 3, 2003 FBI report obtained by Gang Land describes Peter Pasta as a “recently made member of the Bonanno family” under capo Jerome Asaro. But Pellegrino, who has never been arrested, as well as law enforcement officials, say that the longtime mob associate was never inducted into the crime family.

We first met Peter Pasta (he was not called that on the show) in Season One, episode eight, according to the BBC. However, the episode marked the U.S. debut of Kitchen Nightmares.

The show's basic formula has Gordon Ramsay visit a failing restaurant, ordering lunch or dinner, picking the food apart while sniffing it, maybe occasionally tasting a morsel, after which he's been known to run into the men's room and retch.  He doesn't eat as you or I would.

He'll march into the kitchen and degrade everyone following a particularly bad dining experience. God help anyone who attempts to mount a defensive. Ramsay capably will cut them off at the knees.

He proceeds to attempt to fix the restaurant of the week using various measures, including tightening up or simply executing a completely new menu. In the Peter's episode, for example, offering family-style dining was Ramsay's solution.

Ramsay will change a restaurant's entire concept; he will gut a restaurant or a staff member at the drop of a dime, seemingly relishing associated confrontations.

On one episode he gleefully watched an elderly lady-owner weep bitterly as various crappy decor tidbits and knick knacks that once inhabited her place of business burned to cinders in the parking lot. Ramsay had piled them up and set them afire.

Like a blond embodiment of the Thunder God Thor, wielding a ladle in place of a mallet, Ramsay pounds tables, abruptly closing a restaurant in mid-service when necessary and screaming his throat raw and his fair skin pinkish.

Ramsay is somewhat subdued in the Peter Pasta episode. In episode two, about Dillons, we view the celebrated chef in true rare form. It features a fellow Englishman general manager who sought to win over Ramsay with a smile and a wink. ("Dillons is an Indian restaurant?" Ramsay asks the befuddled GM. "Doesn't sound like an Indian," Ramsay continued. The GM would be unemployed by show's end.)

The best part is when Ramsay investigates the kitchen, only to discover a foreboding looking staircase that led to a sub kitchen where the true horrors awaited. Cockroaches, flies and rats were freely flying and crawling about, Ramsy screaming in horror while shaking vermin from his golden locks, sinking his fingers into rotting fruit and spoiled chopped meat.

"Do we need a death in the restaurant to wake you people up!!" he cries at the top of his lungs.

"IT'S ROTTEN!! YOU SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED!!!!"

Enraged, he corners Martin, the GM, and in clear words he eviscerated the man (and the owner!). "You're taking advantage of a weak rich man," Ramsay tells Martin, who ducks all responsibility.

Generally, Ramsay attempts to use obvious and usually effective methods to turn the failing restaurants around. He attempts to differentiate eateries sinking under competition's weight.

Filled with sarcasm and vitriol, Ramsay hammers the notion that fresh food is the only option (restaurateurs using any frozen fare are in serious trouble if they don't fess up at once). He will whip up a dish of anything at a moment's notice, more like a magician than a chef. He'll teach the chefs how to cook. (This happens usually following the inevitable screaming session and occasional firing of a head chef, a manager etc. Ramsay wisely forms alliances with sous chefs who invariably despise head chefs.)

Ultimately Ramsay walks the blindfolded owners and staffers into a newly renovated restaurant (the makeover is done in one dramatic night), the footage capturing their delirious excitement. Many owners can be seen weeping with relief, and some even appear ready to drop to their knees to blow Ramsay. A few chef-owners went on to commit suicide as well.

In Peter’s Italian Restaurant in Babylon, NY, we learn that Tina Pellegrino, sister to Peter Pasta, took over the family-owned upscale eatery a few years prior to Gordon's visit in 2008 (the recession, which by then was really starting to gain steam, extinguished most of the resurrected Kitchen Nightmares restaurants, Peter's apparently among them). It was already on the verge of closing when Gordin arrived and "dined," spitting out what little shreds of food he'd tasted. The salad was necrotic, the stuffed clams cold and vile tasting, the lobster ravioli likened to baby food. (A chef soon admits on camera: "Whaddya expect? It's from Restaurant Depot." That is a real store where it seems some restaurants apparently purchase the frozen food touted on their menus.)

Our hearts went out to Tina, a hard-working, beautiful Italian woman struggling to run a restaurant -- and control her overbearing, insufferable thieving brother.

Peter wore expensive suits, drove a flashy Mercedes convertible, was possessed of unnaturally white teeth, and acted like he owned the place (which he probably did). He'd boss the staffers around while liberally quoting from The Godfather. One waitress cried for being criticized harshly (something about a bottle of wine, though I must confess I was with Peter on that one, she was too sensitive). Peter did this and a lot more, including slipping his well-manicured hand into the till. He gave meals "on the arm" to diners who could easily afford to pay the bill.

Gordon, as usual, immediately saw through him and identified him as one of the key problems with the restaurant. Peter eventually sees the light and seemingly changes overnight -- just like the restaurant makeover. But people aren't fine dining establishments. Well, at least the viewers got their usual happy ending. (I think the racketeer in Peter had kicked in. He conned Ramsay into thinking he'd seen the light, all the while knowing intuitively that the quickest way to both expedite Ramsay's exit and save face as per his sister and the staff was to pretend to reform completely.)

A couple of a-typical things happened during this episode, however. (See clip below, for the one we describe next.)

A "bill collector" shows up during filming, quietly slipping inside through the front door while Ramsay is delivering one of his obligatory rousing speeches: "Tonight is a really crucial, critical night..."

The "vendor" or whoever he is -- who Ramsay repeatedly tells "Get out of the way" and "Go away" --  is seeking cash he is allegedly owed.




Just as Ramsay himself appears ready to smack the guy across the face, Peter whips his jacket off and the discussion quickly moves outside onto the sidewalk. To Ramsay's "Oh, shit" bewilderment we watch the discussion swiftly evolve into a potential murder scene. The restaurant staff restrains an enraged Peter while the corpulent sweaty vendor tucks himself behind his Caddy's front wheel and drives off, Peter still howling at him.

(Peter uses many more colorful words in the unedited clip above than I was previously aware of -- as they beeped out all the profanity on the version I'd originally watched. This and all the Kitchen Nightmares episodes are now available on Hulu, which you can access via the Amazon Fire TV Stick, among other devices. (I love the Roku device and know of a certain free channel that provides tons of video entertainment...)

Later on in the episode another "vendor" showed up in the evening and we almost see a repeat of the first visit, with Peter slowly and steadily walking toward the man, who backs up a few steps. However, Tina gets between the men and talked to this "vendor" off camera. He soberly walked off after yelling, loud enough for the camera, that nobody respected Peter anymore. (Puzo was correct about the strength of Italian women.)

I here postulate that these vendors were not vendors and that the collections had nothing to do with the restaurant but rather with Peter himself.

We later on came across a website and read:

"[Peter's] was featured as the premier of the U.S. version of Kitchen Nightmares w/Chef Gordon Ramsay on Sept. 19, 2007 on FOX. This sketchy 'cash only' Italian restaurant has since closed." Someone left a humorous comment: "That's odd, since when did mob fronts ever have to make money?"

As for what happened to Pellegrino, why he was kicked out of the mob and his own family hates him, it seems the trouble started with his brother-in-law, Lawrence Raino, a Genovese associate, who took out a restraining order against Peter Pasta -- the two had fought over something.

Raino made "hundreds" of copies of the order and distributed them in "clubs in all the five boroughs," Pellegrino told Capeci.

Raino also spread the word that Peter was a rat, which effectively ended Peter's career in the mob -- and could have future ramifications far worse than a ruined career. (Though Raino doesn't seem very intelligent for a Genovese associate... distributing a restraint order?)

A self-proclaimed brokester, Peter Pasta is currently unemployed and looking for work. So he told Capeci.

  6. Just watched this episode on the BBC and googled to see what happened to the place. Absolutely not surprised it closed, and not surprised at the other 'sketchy' stuff.

    Like others, I feel sorry for Tina! She was the heart of that place and busting her butt to keep everything afloat. Shame she didn't get more cooperation or help from Mr Showboat. She's a beautiful woman with a lot of heart, hope she ended up doing well for herself.

  8. Everyone here it seems responded "Anonymous". Just watching the episode now. No business in the world can operate with people over the edge like that. Ever. Poor Tina, she actually cared, but had too much against here. The money went in the wrong directions. It needed to go into the infrastructure and plan. The great thing about food, is that the big guys do not have a lock on restaurants. The little guy CAN make a living and an impact if hard work, focus, and dedication are performed. Even a small distraction can make a difference. Left unchecked, it will for sure be the downfall. Forget name calling and all that nonsense. It has no impact on the outcome. In the end, if problems are not addressed the establishment fails. In this case, it failed.

I saw the show and I laughed my you know what off!!! He must've done something right because people are still talking about him albeit not nice!!! I know Peter and his sisters and they are, really nice, down to earth people. Peter is the kind of person who would give you the shirt off his back as would his sisters.

  14. I just have seen that episode in a Spanish TV and I think about Peter from the first moment, that he is a perfect idiot. Absolute idiot, and with a person like him, ANY bussiness can work ever.

  16. "Ignorance can be taught away, but stupidity is forever". Peter comes across as having a learning disability. His elevator has yet to make it to the top floor. Peter might be better suited for a simple job nothing in the service field.

He behaved like a thug and a lout and no surprise he remained that way. If he has indeed hit rock bottom, I hope he finds he way back to the world with a bit more humility.

    So much for Peter. And we now know his father is gone. What has become of his sister?

  31. I had a wonderful meal in this restaurant back in 2003 or 2004. We were gathered together to celebrate Father's Day with my cousin who lives and works in Bablon. Last year, I wanted to give my cousin & his wife a gift certificate to what was once their favorite restaurant, and found out it was closed. My TV was tuned into BBC today, and they were showing the episode with Gordon Ramsey back in 2007. The family dynamic was like watching a soap opera...drama, drama, drama, with Gordon in the mix. When I went researching the Pelligrino family, this blog appeared. Babylon loved Peter's, and it was a pleasure to dine there. So sorry that the family couldn't make it work.

It's like, we get it, Petey Pasta is not widely loved; people have serious issues with him... Could be one person making many, many comments, or many people each making a comment... OR it could be someone or -ones making stuff up and commenting... or a mix of the two. The bottom line is, I have no way to tell...

  36. Nonaht Leyte - NYCMar 16, 2013, 2:52:00 AM

    I grew up in the restaurant business, and obviously had an interest in Ramsey's show - to see Peter's being utterly destroyed by this 350 pound moron was truly painful, Worse though is that I was *enraged* that Ramsey would spend the effort to outfit Peter's with the new kit (stoves, ovens, broilers, tableware, etc.) - when the entire revenue stream was so obviously being pocketed by the resident short-bus loser/thief. There are so many honest and hard working people out there trying to make it work, and Ramsey "buys" (gets vendors to donate for air time mention) this UNDESERVING P.O.S. 20-30 thousand in new gear? Why not have Petey sell his car, or maybe some of his suits and $500 shoes to pay for the damn ovens? After all, that gear could have, and SHOULD have, been purchased with the money Peter STOLE FROM HIS SISTER!

    I feel really sorry for Tina, having had her brother literally embezzle her into BK, but at the same time, she knew what had to be done to save the business (fire Moron Pete), and didn't. She would NO DOUBT have made it, and made it big (in restaurant terms at least), had she just done what she KNEW what had to be done. Watching her as she allowed Moron Pete to demand drinks while patrons went unserved, eat food purchased by her guests, ride roughshod over every employee, patron, and any other person within 500 feet of his overbearing moronic attitude - was so painful. Tina - you have a good heart, but you allowed this to happen. You are a very beautiful and smart woman, who will - HOPEFULLY - be able to try again someday: you have what it takes (and most so-called foodies haven't a clue): you just need to either wait for Moron Pete to be found with high speed lead poisoning in the back of his skull, or put your no doubt beautiful foot down and tell this land shark to take a walk. Off a pier...

    1. I think Ramsey was "had" as my headline indicates. I noticed the Michelen -starred chef didn't return for the followup episode (when he revisits places he worked on); they filmed the segment without Gordon, which I think suggests he figured them out... Ramsey is no fool and I think your anger and frustration is "spot on."

  45. I have enjoyed reading all the comments, I must admit I was doing a follow-up to see what happened to Tina, Peter and the family. I saw in Peter the same as most of the folks who though not highly of him. I hate to say it but I wanted to see him fail because I know his kind, they use intimidation to get what they want. After reading the "inside story" - piecing together folks who know the family, know Peter, it really sounds very sad. I am a "Friend of Bill W's" I see now that addiction plays a part throughout a family, not just the person using. I would hope Peter stays clean and sober, look at his character defects and change, become a productive member of society. We all have an opportunity to "RE-INVENT ourselves" Michael from Pittsburgh

  52. He was affiliated with the Bonannos. There ain't no Gotti family -- if he's saying that he is full of $-it.... I wouldn't worry about the Mafia. Doesn't sound like he earns and based on his alleged drug habit he's probably been chased out.
