POCONO TOWNSHIP — The sudden death of actor and Soprano’s star James Gandolfini is hitting especially close to home for one couple in the Poconos.

The owners of Galeano’s Pizza and Pasta near Tannersville say they became friendly with Gandolfini who was a regular customer at their restaurant.

Teresa Galeano says the actor would bring his family in for a meal when he would take them skiing in the Poconos.

“We were behind the line, and i was like that`s James Gandolfini, because he came up to ask me about pizza, that`s James Gandolfini and my husband said, I think he knows he`s James Gandolfini, and he would say, please call me Jim and they were just sweethearts, ” said Galeano.

Galeano says she and her husband even partied with the cast of the Sopranos during a trip to Atlantic City.
