The Ancelotti Family are the last and weakest one of the "Five Families" that control organized crime in Liberty City. The organization was formed in the late 1950s by Giovanni Ancelotti, an Italian immigrant. The family's criminal empire is based in Alderney City and Algonquin, mainly around the Little Italy. They are apparently the weakest of the Five Families, going to the extent of hiring Albanian thugs for extra muscle. Because of this, the Ancelottis are often the target of the Pegorino Family and their hired muscle, the Irish Mob. Despite the family's small size, they still appear to be able to intimidate people, judging by some of the in game dialogue. This could be due to things that they have done in the past that remain as of yet unexplained. They also start to work with the Faustin Family, earning the wrath of the Gambetti Family, who consider it an insult to work with foreign crime syndicates. After the events of the storylines, the family is ruined. Most of the reputed members have been murdered, apart from the boss, his daughter Gracie, and made man Rocco.

Reputed members and associates

Known Members

  • Giovanni Ancelotti, 78, boss of the organization.
  • Charles Matteo, 60, Giovanni's right hand man and underboss, currently in hiding somewhere in Alderney after skipping bail on racketeering charges.
  • Anthony Spoleto, 55, captain of the Spoleto crew.
  • Frank Garone, 31, captain of the Garone crew.
  • Rocco Pelosi, made man in the Ancelotti family, working for one of the captains.
  • Vince, soldier or associate, who is regularly seen with and is the uncle of Pelosi.



The Ancelotti family may be based on the Colombo crime family, the less influent family of New York, even though the Colombos are just based in Brooklyn, and don't have a heavy influence in New Jersey. Like the Colombo family the Ancelotti's are one of the smaller families of New York City.


  • It's possible the family ended after the end of GTA IV because Rocco left the city after Departure Time and two Capos, the Underboss and several members were killed by Niko Bellic.
  • During the mission Chinese Takeout, Gay Tony says they are "One of the most powerful mob families in the city", despite them ironically being the weakest.
  • It is possible that the buyers in the mission If the Price is Right are the Ancelottis since they are known to be in the business of dealing drugs with Dimitri Rascalov and the Russian Mafia.
  • The family's main/favorite car is the Cognoscenti, seen driven more by them then anybody.
