Stealing a Bomb
The leader of the Manfredi Crime Family, Joseph Manfredi, surrounded by his bodyguards, was eating in a restaurant when Whitney Frost and Calvin Chadwick requested to meet with him; they wanted to have members of his organization to help her move a package. Manfredi demanded not only the contract that assured highway construction work to his loyalists, but his operations to stop appearing in the newspapers. When Chadwick hesitated about agreeing to his terms, Manfredi severely pummeled the bodyguard Clifford staring at Frost, showing how ruthless Manfredi can be. Chadwick agreed to the terms.
Manfredi had five members help Frost look for an Atomic Bomb at a Roxxon Corporation building. Three of the mobsters where stationed outside the facility while disguised as security guards while the rest assisted Frost and Chadwick. The mobsters outside encountered Rose Roberts and Aloysius Samberly who incapacitated them with a gadget. While searching inside, one mobster fought Roberts and another battled Peggy Carter; both men lost to their opponents and were knocked out.
Protecting Whitney Frost
Whitney Frost became the undisputed leader of the Council of Nine and asked Joseph Manfredi, her new escort after she absorbed Calvin Chadwick, to use his criminal subordinates as her and the Council's bodyguards. Vernon Masters, at the Chadwick Ranch, confronted Frost about the involvement of the Manfredi Crime Family, but she and Manfredi cited that Masters' men are not as loyal as the criminal syndicate. Frost, Manfredi, and Masters left the other criminals to guard the imprisoned Dottie Underwood as they went on different tasks.
Peggy Carter and Edwin Jarvis were soon captured when they intruded onto the Ranch. They tied the pair up beside Underwood and continued to guard from outside. Suddenly, the Jitterbug that Jarvis had brought with him activated and caused all the other Manfredi Criminal Family members to be knocked unconscious by its concussive blast. Carter, Jarvis, and Underwood walked over their sleeping bodies as they escaped. Meanwhile, Manfredi was helping Frost to kidnap Jason Wilkes from Howard Stark's Estate; he carried the unconscious man to his car and witnessed as Frost shot Ana Jarvis to facilitate their escape.
Mishandling the Rods
Manfredi Crime Family members were with Whitney Frost and Joseph Manfredi, holding Jason Wilkes at gunpoint, when Peggy Carter and Daniel Sousa came to their location to trade for Wilkes uranium rods Frost wanted from the Roxxon Warehouse. One member scanned the rods in front of Frost and she verified that they were real; upon verification, Frost told the members to give Wilkes to Carter. While passing it to Manfredi, one of the men mishandled the case which carried the rods and it fell to the ground; Frost automatically knew that the rods were fake. Manfredi ordered his men to fire on the truck carrying Wilkes as it sped away.

Altercation with Spider-Man
In 2024, the Manfredi Crime Family had an altercation inside an Upper Manhattan mob-owned upper-class restaurant with Spider-Man, who was en route to collect various travel items for a class trip to Europe. Spider-Man fought the armed mobsters, who were involved in an unidentified crime deal. Using the Iron Spider Armor, he trapped them in his webbing, before handing them over into the custody of a NYPD unit led by Officer Bristow, identifying the sellers, buyers, and rival informants in the deal.
In the wake of the ambush on the Manfredis, J. Jonah Jameson from The Daily Bugle commented on the outlet that New York City's Mafia Cold War had gone hot due to Spider-Man's intervention, accusing the wall-crawler of endangering civilian lives and disrespecting the brave NYPD officers upon his arrival. He also speculated that Spider-Man likely took down the Manfredis under the directions of one of their rivals.

Behind the Scenes
- Director Jon Watts stated that the deleted scene featuring Spider-Man taking down the Manfredi Crime Family was part of a sequence of Spider-Man's To-Do list before leaving for Europe, which was excluded from the movie for being unnecessary. However, it had been converted into Peter's To-Do List, which was included in the Blu-ray release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, and in the movie's Extended Cut.
