* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Savino may be a mobster and cold-blooded killer but he's also a good husband and truly loves his kids.
** When Savino faces execution by a rival, the closest he comes to begging is asking that his body at least be left in enough shape for his family to have an open casket funeral.
** Indeed, Savino is eventually forced to send his wife away because he knows as long as she's in town, she'll be either a target for enemies or risks becoming "collateral damage" in an attack on Savino.

** Going to meet what they think are a simple band of ranchers, Savino and Rocky are beaten down by a pack of wealthy Mormons who have basically controlled this area for decades and are ready to treat the mobsters like any other threat. Savino points out that progress is causing these men to lose their farms and resources and their way of life is almost over. He says that if they want power in modern Vegas, they need control of a casino. When the Mormon leader says he doesn't know anything about running a casino, Savino offers to do it for him.

* CantKillYouStillNeedYou:
** When Lamb busts a mobster for illegal gambling, he calls a council demanding Lamb be killed. Savino says he has no problem with it ("hell, I'd probably enjoy it") but doing so risks bringing the FBI and gaming commision down on them. More importantly, it means two dead sheriffs in a month and that will be a blow to the tourist trade and their profits. Thus, the council reasons they have to let Lamb live for now.
