Vincenzo Isoldi is a Pittsburgh-based entrepreneur, who owns several strip clubs. Known as the Steel City "Godfather," he has found fame as the star of an A&E reality TV show titled “Godfather of Pittsburgh.”
The show premiered in December 2014 and follows Isoldi as he manages his multiple strip clubs and a limousine business, in addition to living with his wife and three sons. Episodes revolve around his day-to-day life, including a feud with his former business partners: his sister and brother-in-law.
Isoldi got his start through a company he incorporated called Stiffy’s Inc., with another brother, Franco, as its treasurer, in 1994. Stiffy’s operates Club Erotica and other businesses along Island Avenue in McKees Rocks, where Isoldi owns at least four other buildings he acquired between 2001 and 2004. He incorporated another company, V.I. Productions, in 1999. The treasurer for V.I. Productions is Jeffrey Fedele, a brother-in-law.
"The Godfather" Isoldi is no stranger to controversy.
On the show, several of Isoldi's businesses were featured, including the restaurant Vince’s older brother is seen tossing pizza at Taverna 19, Club Millennium and Club Chemistry, which were on the second floor of a building along 19th Street in the Strip District, and Isoldi’s On The Strip all of which have since closed. Isoldi has also been found to be delinquent on several thousand dollars in taxes to different entities throughout Pittsburgh, and was recently named in a lawsuit for failure to properly train or vet security personnel before allowing them to work and not creating a safe environment for a customer at his business Club Erotica. In 2012, in a building Vince owns (leased to be a nightclub), a 23 year old female was murdered on New Years, and the club that was subsequently shut down.
Vince Isoldi's net worth is approximately $20 million.
