Murderer slammed after opening diner where meals are named after famous mobsters

A convicted killer and ex-mobster was met with an online ambush after publicising his restaurant where meals are named after famous gangsters.

Diners at the restaurant owned by former Italian mafioso Salvatore Buzzi can enjoy meals such as Samurai and The Terrible, whose names come from hit Italian crime shows Suburra and Romanzo Criminale, The Times reported.

His menu also features the Gomorrah pizza with bacon and buffalo mozzarella, a nod to the infamous Naples mafia book and TV show.

And there's the Genny mixed salad named after Gomorrah's notorious main character.

The menu also says: “Magistrates pay double and judges pay triple.”

Buzzi, 65, spent nine years behind bars for murder.

Then he made a fortune organising migrant housing – which allegedly involved bribing city officials.

That means he now faces a 12-year prison term for corruption.

Salvatore remains free while he awaits the verdict of an appeal.

During the migrant housing business Buzzi's supposed partner was infamous career criminal Massimo Carminati.

Carminati lost an eye during a massive shootout between the far-right terrorist gang NAR and Italian police.

He called himself "The King of Rome" for his incredible exploits and uncanny ability to avoid being caught.

Massimo also inspired characters in both Suburra and Romanzo Criminale – so he has plenty of connections to Buzzi's new diner, whether intended or not.

Liberal Turin newspaper La Stampa slammed Buzzi's business model as glamorising mafia culture and exploiting its innocent victims.

The paper stormed: "[This offends] the victims of these ‘wonderful’ people — the families who were massacred, robbed and threatened.

"[Buzzi exploits] people who killed, extorted and robbed."

Buzzi hit back, saying the books and TV shows actually helped put people like him behind bars because judges began to distrust the mob.

He explained: “The books came out before our trial and created a prejudice against us among the judges who accused us of being a mafia.

“To win €180 million in contracts, only €65,000 in kickbacks were paid, which is not very much."
