Calco was sentenced to 13 years in jail for the restaurant beating and is expected to get more jail time for violating terms of his supervised release.

A mob rat convicted of beating two pizzeria customers in a “calzone rage” attack will face the same Brooklyn judge Thursday he had previously promised to stay out of trouble, the Daily News has learned.
Joey Calco — a former hit man for the Bonanno crime family with two murder convictions under his belt — had reinvented himself in the witness protection program as Joseph Milano, the owner of Goomba’s Pizza in Florida.
But Calco’s new life unraveled in 2009 over a beef with customers who were demanding their money back because he screwed up the calzone order. Calco vaulted over the counter and pistol-whipped the victims in a brutal attack captured on video camera.
Calco was sentenced to 13 years in prison for the calzone beatdown and possession of a gun.
Brooklyn Federal Judge Edward Korman is expected to sentence Calco to additional jail time for violating the terms of his supervised release from his previous murder convictions.
Calco, 42, had helped prosecutors nail members of a violent Bath Ave. crew and was rewarded in 2004 with a nine-year sentence for two murders. “If you give me another chance, Judge, I won’t let the court down and I won’t let you down, your honor,” Calco told Korman.
Korman could dish out a sentence to run to the term Calco received for the Florida fiasco.
Defense lawyer Deborah Colson declined to comment.
