Now that I am blogging, my name pops up on google along with Matty the Horse Ianniello. We knew of Mr. Ianniello as we were growing up but if he is in fact a relative, he is not closer than first cousin. He may be a third cousin or further out, I don't know. In some parts of the country that still counts as family (in other parts they marry people that are closer than that). And although I have eaten at some of the best restaurants in in the world, I have never eaten at Umberto's Clam House on Mulberry Street.
There was also rumor of a Joe 'the knife' Ianniello but I never heard or read any confirmation of that.
Net - I am officially declaring I am not in nor is anyone I am related in the mafia (to my knowledge).
