Cali, who was born and raised in NY, was the nephew-in-law of John Gambino and the great-nephew of Bonanno mobsters Vito Bonventre and Giovanni Bonventre.
After exiting a limousine outside the restaurant, Castellano and his underboss, Thomas Bilotti, were approached by three men in trench coats who shot them each about six times, the New York Times reported at the time.
Witnesses told local media of hearing at least six shots coming from outside, and seeing Cali's family members rushing outside and crying next to his body.
A police source told DailyMail.com: 'Cali was home having dinner with his family when this truck pulled up. Police are now investigating the matter and have yet to arrest anyone in connection.
The Gambino crime family is one of what is widely referred to as "The Five Families" of Italian organized crime operations in New York City and other parts of the United States.
A panicked family member called 911, telling a dispatcher Cali was deliberately run over before he was shot, sources said.
Cali is the first reputed crime family boss to be shot since the execution of former Gambino head Paul Castellano in 1985. Gotti died while in prison in 2002 of throat cancer and Gambino died in 1976.
Federal authorities tried to put a stop to Cali's rise to power in the late 2000s, after he completed a 16-month sentence for an extortion scheme connected to a failed bid to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island.
Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali is said to have taken over the running of the organisation from Domenico Cefalu in 2015. It was used as the location for fictional crime boss Don Corleone's compound in the 1972 film The Godfather.
The Genovese, Gambino, Lucchese, Colombo and Bonanno mafia families are believed to have controlled organised crime in NY for decades. Sylvester Zottola, 71, reportedly of the Bonanno crime family, was gunned down at a McDonald's drive thru in the Bronx last October, according to WABC.
