- "It's perfect for us. A small family place, good food. Everyone minds his business. Perfect. They've got an old-fashioned toilet. You know, the box and the chain thing. We might be able to tape the gun behind it."
- ―Salvatore Tessio[src]
Michael Corleone held conference with Virgil Sollozzo and Captain McCluskey in early 1946. Michael asked to be excused in order to go to the lavatory, where he picked up a small untraceable gun, placed there earlier by one of Peter Clemenza's men. Upon his return, Michael shot Sollozzo and McCluskey, dropped the gun and made a hasty escape. This led to the outbreak of the Five Families War.
In the The Godfather: The Game, the restaurant is owned by Louis Bocchicchio and is located in Midtown. Aldo Trapani plants the gun in the lavatory before the meeting between Michael and Sollozzo. A short while after the shooting, Aldo Trapani takes control of the restaurant after Louis Bocchicchio gives it up without resistance.
