- "But if you're telling me a story, kid, this ain't gonna be such a beautiful, sunshiny day here in the splendor of the lakes. You understand?"
- ―Leo Pirelli, to Jax Teller
Leo Pirelli is the head of the Pirelli Crime Family in Reno, Nevada, on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Played by American actor Peter Onorati, Leo appears only on the episode "Andare Pescare" in the series' fifth season.
Leo Pirelli runs bookkeeping and poker clubs. He has a fishing cabin at Lake Cascade in Tahoe which he uses as a stash house.
SAMCRO member Frankie Diamonds , fleeing his club and the law, pays Pirelli for mob protection and is allowed to hole up in his cabin. When his former comrades come looking for him at one of Pirelli’s clubs, they are forbidden from wearing their kuttes inside, which starts a brawl. After that, they inform Pirelli that Frankie stole money from them and their associates, the Galindo Cartel and the True IRA. Pirelli agrees to turn over Frankie in exchange for the money.
When Frankie learns that SAMCRO is on the way and that Pirelli has sold him out, he kills the mob enforcer watching him. Clay Morrow crashes a van into the cabin and causes it to explode. When Pirelli arrives and sees his associate dead, he shoots Frankie in the head. Afterwards, if SAMCRO compensates him for the damage done to his poker club and cabin, he is willing to call it even.
