The Pavano Family is one of the five Cosa Nostra Commission families of Liberty City and is led by 60 year old Maria Valvona, a Sicilian born matriarch. The Family is based mainly in Algonquin but also has some business interests in Alderney. Joe Corrola is believed to be in charge of the family's heroin distribution ring, Mario Venturella is the longest lasting lover of Maria and a cat-burglar based in Algonquin and Arthur Zepulla is believed to be the family Consigliere. Jimmy Pegorino looked at the Pavanos as a way of getting a seat in the Commission, so he organised a sit down with them at an old refinery, where he took Niko Bellic along to watch over the meet with a sniper rifle after he was recommended to Pegorino by Phil Bell. The sit down was a set up and the Pavanos attempted to whack Pegorino, who was saved by Niko. The Pavanos later suffered for their actions when Pegorino hired Bellic to wipe out one of their crews that was meeting at Auto Eroticar in Alderney.


  • One of the Pavano character models is strongly based on the character Eddie from the Quenten Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs.
