'Goodfellas' Star Frank Sivero

I Have Italian Beef

With a Deli Owner

7/10/2014 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0710-frank-sivero-tmz-02Frank Sivero -- who played Frankie Carbone in 'Goodfellas' -- is suing a guy he says is a real badfella ... a deli owner near the Mexican border.

Sivero claims he went to Deli Belly in El Cajon, CA in March ... where he posed for pics with fans.

According to the lawsuit ... the owner got hold of one of the pics and plastered it all over his website, advertising a Frank Carbone sandwich which is stacked with meats and cheese, including Genoa salami, mortadella, hot cappy, deluxe ham, provolone cheese and lots of other stuff.

The deli owner called the creation the Frankie Carbony.   It doesn't seem Sivero is objecting to the name of the hero ... but using his pic has made him hot as branzino grease.

We went to the deli website and it looks like they 86'd Sivero's pic.

Let's hope the suit doesn't kill the sando completely ... cause it sounds amazing.

Can you say what an idiot. He is lucky someone recognized his ugly mug. Restaurants do that all the time. Show pics of celebs on the wall or website and they name a plate after them. Hate when a B celeb does this to wastes the courts time and to a mom and pop small restaurant.

Sivero should just settle it out of court. Personally, I would give him 1 warning, then take physical action. Thorw a,box of ****roaches in the kitchen, call his food delivery drivers and truck owners,,,that's all it would take.

Think about the fact that your publication put out a story about a fu@&ing sandwich. You must be so proud of your contribution to the world
