Bruno Tattaglia

Bruno Tattaglia is a fictional character appearing in Mario Puzo's novel "The Godfather" and the first installment of Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather" trilogy of films.

Role in "Godfather" saga"

Bruno is son and underboss to Philip Tattaglia, head of one of New York's Five Families. Along with business partner Virgil Sollozzo, he strikes the first blow in the war with the Corleone family by helping murder Corleone enforcer Luca Brasi, who had met with Bruno to try and infiltrate the rival faction. However, the family's attempts on the life of Don Vito Corleone fail. Vito's son Sonny has his men assassinate Bruno as revenge. Bruno's death (as well as Sonny's death later on) is instrumental in prompting Dons Tattaglia and Corleone to seek an end to their conflict.

Despite Bruno being credited as Don Phillip's underboss, the book states that he is very displeased and detracted from his father's prostitution business. This would make him a less likely candidate for underboss, as would the fact that he is Phillip's youngest son, as per the book. John Tattaglia, in the novel, is on Sonny's vendetta list, and is presumably Phillip's true underboss. In "," the player, as Aldo Trapani, is asked by Tessio to carry out an optional hit on Johnny Tattaglia who is one of Phillip's sons.

Bruno's death is not seen in the film (although Sal Tessio says "We hit Bruno Tattaglia at 4 o'clock this morning"), but in "The Godfather: The Game", he is tossed into a cremation retort by the protagonist Aldo Trapani for murdering his girlfriend, Frances "Frankie" Malone.
