The business suffered a decline in the early 40s, when it was taken over by Tattaglia family, who were attempting to make a move on Hell's Kitchen. The move failed, yet Marinelli's stayed under their control, although Moxie was not trusted enough to be given a racket.
By 1949, Marinelli had become sick of the Tattaglias and was delighted when Aldo Trapani took over instead.
