The introduction to Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories are opening cutscenes that begins when a new game is started. Because it consists of only cutscenes, the player has no interactivity except to skip to Home Sweet Home, the game's first mission, straight away.

Cut scene

The cut scene begins with a coach pulling up to Punk Noodles in Chinatown on Portland, Liberty City. The protagonist, Toni Cipriani, gets off with a suitcase in hand. Toni walks to a payphone and calls a taxi, which takes him to Salvatore Leone's Gentleman's Club in Saint Marks. Toni meets with Salvatore, the Don of the Leone Family, who thanks him for what he did and for laying low. Salvatore tells Toni to take it easy and to work for Vincenzo Cilli. Toni is reluctant to take orders from Vincenzo and disagrees with Salvatore. Salvatore persuades Toni to work for Vincenzo, who then tells Toni to drive him to his warehouse in Atlantic Quays.


Salvatore Leone: Hey... So there he is, huh? So listen, Toni, I know you did a good thing for us, and I know you've been lying low for a long time, so I want you to take it easy a while, huh? Vincenzo will look after you. You need some money, ask him. You need a job - Lucky will take care of you. What more could a family guy ask for? Even my son don't got it so good.

Toni Cipriani: But, Mr. Leone, I thought we got history, I mean I've done a lot for this family. And now, you're expecting me to take orders from this... this... this... Well, it just doesn't seem right.

Salvatore Leone: Toni, I know what you did, and no one is more grateful than me, honestly, but the idea that you walk here and start to question my leadership right away is, quite frankly, out of order. Capiche?

Toni Cipriani: I understand, boss.

Salvatore Leone: So when you need somethin, give Vincenzo a call down at the Atlantic Quay. He'll take care of you. Won't you Lucky?

Vincenzo Cilli: Of course, boss. Anything you say. Tell you what; we can go there now.


There is no monetary reward for the introduction. The ending of the cutscene unlocks the first mission of GTA Liberty City Stories, Home Sweet Home.



  • The Coach that Toni departs from is very unique as it has a black grill in the front (as most only have an empty space). However the most unique feature is not the colour but the fact that the windows are not opec and there is a very unique driver skin; a white or Asian male with sunglasses. Neither the Coach nor the driver can be obtained though cheats or third-party trainers.
  • The music that plays as the Cabbie arrives to pick up Toni is a remixed version of the theme from Grand Theft Auto III.
