Behind the scenes
Portrayed by Joe Paulino (voice)

Oscar Zavarelle was the Stracci family's senior caporegime.


A close friend of Salvatore Stracci, Oscar Zavarelle was known as a sleazy thug who had a weakness for young girls. Despite these vices, he was known as a competent executioner who could also charm his way past racket bosses and merchants. He was known to have a fierce hatred of the Corleone family's hitman, Angelo Granelli.


"You shouldn't have touched the girl, Oscar! Now I'm gonna rip you apart piece by fucking piece."
―Aldo Trapani[src]

Despite numerous attempts to bring down his rival, Zavarelle failed, and instead found revenge by viciously assaulting Granelli's sister. This act cost him his life, as Zavarelle was brutally executed by Aldo Trapani in the sewers of Hell's Kitchen after he was ratted out by one of his own, underpaid bodyguards.

Behind the scenesEdit

He was voiced by Joe Paulino.

Difference between versions Edit

  • In the original version of the game, Zavarelle has the same model as Luigi Fusco. The official strategy guide describes the original Fusco as a smooth but crooked womanizer, whilst the later model is "a sleazy thug".
  • The family tree picture gives him the character model for Noodles Rizzoni.
