Vito Bonventre (1875 – July 15, 1930) was a New York mobster involved in bootlegging with Brooklyn mobster Cola Schiro throughout the Prohibition era.

Bonventre later served as underboss to New York mob boss Salvatore Maranzano during the Castellammarese War. During the early months of the war, Bonventre became a target as the Brooklyn-based Castellammarese began to threaten Joe "the Boss" Masseria's domination over Italian organized crime. On July 15, 1930, Bonventre was gunned down by Masseria gunmen outside his garage.

Bonventre is buried in Calvary Cemetery in Woodside, Queens.
