Colombo mobster wants to open a Pizzeria

Maybe he really does take the restaurant business seriously.
Colombo crime-family slacker Dominick "Black Dom" Dionisio -- who was accused by his probation officer of socializing instead of working at his Brooklyn pizza-parlor job -- is hoping to open a new restaurant for his boss.
While Dionisio waits for his federal racketeering trial to begin, his lawyer has requested that he be allowed to help his current employer, Lucali's Pizza in Carroll Gardens, open a new eatery.
"Mr. Dionisio's duties at the new location will require him to travel to [Manhattan] for, among other things, his food handler's license and permits for the restaurant," his lawyer, James Froccaro informed the judge. "He will be purchasing d├ęcor and equipment for the new restaurant as well."
Froccaro refused to say where the new restaurant will be.
Dionisio is awaiting trial for his role in a 1991 shooting during a Colombo family war, the robbery of a Yeshiva student the same year and conspiracy to rob a Mexican marijuana smuggler.
Dionisio, who helped fund the drug trade at the Limelight and other New York nightclubs in the 1990s, pleaded guilty in 2001 and served an eight-year stint in prison for other racketeering charges
