Danny Dragone is a multipurpose employee at Carlo's Bake Shop nicknamed "The Mule" because of his versatility. Danny's been working at the bakery since before Buddy was born, and is a very close family friends. Like Buddy's brother-in-law, Mauro, Danny's originally from Italy, and he's now the father of two daughters, one of whom is named Tatiana.

Danny's been a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers (an NFL-team) since he first came to the United States, and he's known for being a serious chick magnet, much to the surprise of some of his male coworkers.
