Molotov Cocktail Thrown Into Restaurant Once Frequented by Vito Rizzuto

La Cantina this morning.
Early this morning, someone threw a Molotov cocktail into a restaurant once frequented by deceased Montreal Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto.

The burglar alarm went off and police and firefighters arrived at around 1am local time.

La Cantina restaurant, located on St. Laurent Blvd. at Legendre St., was aflame. Firefighters extinguished the fire, limiting damage. When arson was found to be the cause, police took over and are investigating.

No one has been arrested.

Vito Rizzuto, the former Mafia boss of Montreal, was a regular at La Cantina, according to several sources.

In August 2009, the first shot of the bloody Montreal Mafia war (ongoing today) was fired. Convicted drug trafficker Federico del Peschio, 59, a former cellmate and friend of Nicolo Rizzuto, Sr., Vito's father, was shot dead in a gangland hit.

Del Peschio, a co-owner of La Cantina, actually was shot dead behind the restaurant. He'd been starting his day when the shooter, who was very familiar with the restaurateur's routine, killed him.

Del Peschio was laid out in a funeral home owned by the Rizzuto and Renda families.

Supposedly he was set to serve as acting boss of the Rizzuto family after many of its leaders were sent to prison following Operation Colisee. (Vito Rizzuto himself was in an American prison.)

Some 300 attended the funeral and the mother of Vito Rizzuto and his sister were seen weeping.

Then, the bodies began to fall. In December 2009, Nicolo Rizzuto Jr., 42, son of Vito Rizzuto, was shot to death.

In May 2010, Rizzuto consigliere Paolo Renda vanished.

In June 2010, Agostino Cuntrera, 66, who ran the Rizzuto crime family's daily operations, and his bodyguard Liborio Sciascia, 40, were murdered.

On Nov. 10, 2010, Nicolo Rizzuto Sr., 86, was assassinated by a sniper while eating dinner with his family in his home.


  1. I Guess the old man wonders where he went wrong with these two girls one with a latino snitch and one with a black child hope i got that right god for bid but all he has to do is look in the mirror and the failure falls upon him for not being there when need be. Philly

  2. Lana married a wise guy who did not rat and was a huge earner. I think he is still in the life. Renee married a rat/junkie and a worthless shooter who was not an earner. Jennifer hooked up with her sons father while doing marijuana dealing.

  3. Is the maggi guy from Buffalo family im new to this canada stuff .philly

  4. So the Graziano girls take after the Kardashians and they like moolies,what a shame on the Italians, no wonder they let Karen Gravano back....

  5. I cut back on the ads -- I had no idea how annoying it was.... does anyone find the site easier to read now? I'd appreciate feedback.... thanks

  6. I thought the same thing Rocco now i see what was going on with Karen and the interacial bull shit makes sense now she Jennifer seen her life through karen in the show ain.t this some shit u talk about some fucked up broads. Philly

  7. Why would Magi team up with Mucci, Magi is a mobbed up business, and Mucci is a stone killer mobster, a guy like Magi is a guy that is always in with the ruling faction, as he is a big earner, which is and will be with the Rizzuto loyalists, led by new boss Domenico Manno, Vito's uncle. Why would Magi journey away from his "blanket of security" for an "out bet" situation like Tony Mucci. If what you Ronen are saying is true, then Magi is a moron, and I can't see Magi being that dumb, as I know Magi to be a bright guy with a great deal of common sense. What your saying would be highly unlikely. Remember another thing, Domenico Manno is a consensus builder, the people being killed off these Vito's death were on Vito death list. The ones now still living, Manno will bring back into the fold, peacefully, with kind words, also known as "reassurances"

  8. yep it's a lot easier thanx Ed yer da best!!

  9. This new season of mobwives is going to be great. Airing next week on december 3rd, i think karen is going to talk about how sammy was recently gonna go testify for the defense of lee fama whos case got dismissed. Victoria gotti is going to do a cameo. This is going to be interesting! Alotta drama and fights. The extended trailer is already up online. Ed, are you or anyone else going to tune in this season?

  10. Freedom of speech my friend. They have the constitutional right to show there story on national television. I may agree with you that the content may be offensive to many in the italian american community, but what do you expect? After the feds take away the men, they also take away the assets. They are left with nothing once the guys get arrested/indicted. I don't blame the women for trying to make a living while the men are away.

  11. Sure! My audience triples when MW is on. Got my CPC up; I'm ready to rock n roll....
