Sebastiano Aloi, also known as Sebastian Aloi, Bastiano Aloi, Vincent Mussolino, Buster Aloi, Bustian Aloi and Buster Bustone is a former underboss of the Colombo Crime Family. He was born on February 4, 1907, in Riesi, Italy. He resided at 115-34 117th Avenue, South Ozone Park, New York. He was a close associate of John Franzese. He is also the father of Vincenzo "Vinnie" Aloi and Benedetto "Benny" Aloi.

Aloi had an arrest record dating from 1930, including arrests for murder, robbery and possession of a still (during prohibition). During the 1960s he was reportedly in charge of all gambling activities in the Williamsburg and Ridgewood sections of Brooklyn and Queens, New York.

Federal informant Joseph Valachi identified Aloi as a member of "La Cosa Nostra," but was unable to recall his "family" affiliation. However other sources confirm that he was a member of the Colombo Crime Family and was actively engaged in directing shylocking activities in Brooklyn, New York. In 1963 he began to suffer from ill health and turned his gambling operations over to his son Vincent and began spending most of his time in Florida. He served as underboss of the family from 1971-1973 when he was replaced by Anthony Abbatemarco.
