Albert "Albie" Cianfalone is a former soldier in the Leotardo crew, and has reputedly worked for Phil Leotardo since the 1980s. After Johnny Sack was arrested and indicted on various charges, Phil was promoted to Acting boss, and Albie was made new Consigliere to Phil Leotardo. Albie helped mediate the Barone Sanitation dispute with the DiMeo Crime Family. He also attended Allegra Sacrimoni's wedding, and sat at Phil's left hand at the meal to celebrate Gerry Torciano getting his "button" at the Vesuvio. Albie accompanied Phil to New Jersey for the Feast of St. Elzear, and helped organize the distribution of stolen vitamins that Tony offered them from a truck hijacking. Once Johnny Sack allocuted in federal court, Albie expressed relief, saying, "Could have been worse. He could've flipped." Phil Leotardo expressed outrage at this statement—he felt that Johnny should have stood trial instead of admitting the existence of "this thing of ours." (meaning the Cosa Nostra) Alongside newly-made Underboss Butch DeConcini, Albie was one of Phil's most trusted advisors and confidants, often seen talking either only to Butch or Phil himself. After Phil hatches the plot of killing the entire regime of the DiMeo Crime Family, Albie first protests in shock that taking out an entire crime family is impossible, however, he later agrees to Phil's decision. Along with Butch, Albie plans the executions of Tony Soprano, Silvio Dante and Robert B, where Bobby is the only one who actually dies. Later, Albie meets with Anthony Soprano and Paulie Gualiteri in the final episode, "Made in America", along with Carmine Lupertazzi, Butch DeConcini, and George Pagelri, the semi-retired boss of one of the New York Five Families, where the Lupertazzi officials agree to end their war with Tony and the New Jersey family, but will not disclose to Tony where their boss Phil Leotardo is hiding. They act as if they can't do so out of loyalty to Phil, but it is most likely just because they don't know where he is hiding.
