A euphemism for a mobster, usually of the Italian mafia. It usually is used for someone that holds a decent rank (i.e. someone with underlings). While there might have once been a time when it was used in seriousness, it's now almost always used sarcastically.
The Sicilian store owner on my block is a very legitimate businessman. He can get what you're looking for.
