Joey Daniello was a member of the Chicago Outfit during the Olive Oil War.


Also known as "Joey the Gyp" due to his background, he became a soldato under Frank Nitti in the 1920s. He helped Giuseppe Mariposa in the Olive Oil Wars, being dispatched by Al Capone to deal with Vito Corleone. However he was set up and kidnapped by Luca Brasi, who killed Benny Amato, planning to leave Daniello alive. However, the assassin died choking on a towel that had been used to gag him.
