Portrayed by Ralph Bracco

Mario Prato is the highest ranking made man in the Mereta crew and the right hand man of Salvatore Mereta. Mario rose through the ranks as a solider working under John Gaeta Sr.  After Salvatore became boss, Mario was promoted to “Lieutenant” and is in charge of many of Mereta’s criminal operations.

Mario is a gangster with his nose to the street, he likes to take care of any “negotiations” before a sit-down occurs. Mario became famous in the underworld for his saying “We ain’t having no sit-down; two in the head solves things faster than six yappin around a table.” With his brute force and fearless attitude, Mario is not a man to be taken lightly.
