Consistent Service at Capone’s – Meet Vito: Featured Wise Guy

Guest Service Spotlight

There’s nothin’ like visitin’ a restaurant or some speakeasy knowin’ yous gonna receive consistent service. One of the goals at Capone’s Dinner Show is that each guest receives excellent service each time theys visit. That’s why havin’ a pal like Vito ‘round is so important. Yous sees all the dames, servers and wise guys at my speakeasy are special, but this month’s featured ‘pal’ is Vito. He’s been ‘round awhile and delivers consistent service to all my guests.

Meet Vito - Wise Guy (server) at Capone's Dinner & Show

Our guests ‘fall’ for Vito & his excellent, consistent service.

Vito made his way down from New York several years ago. In fact, over 10 years ago he fell into our gang. He falls alot, but more about that later… Vito is an Italian name that is derived from the Latin word “vita,” meaning “life” or “life-giving” which is very fitting. This family name was passed down to Vito from his uncle. What good Italian family doesn’t have a Vito?!

Vito is full of life and loves meeting new people at our Orlando dinner show. He enjoys servin’ guests and hearin’ ‘bout their stories. Sometimes he’s so engrossed with his guests he forgets where he is! That’s okay most of the time, but when it causes him to fall off the stage, it can be a real problem. Yous see, I’m all ‘bout takin’ care of the family, howevers, I ain’t much for workmans comp! These wise guys jus’ need to stay on stage or off of it. Course, when yous up there and all those pretty dancers are puttin’ on a show, it’s easy to fall for them gals. Yous know what I mean?

Consistent Service at Capone’s

Vito knows many repeat offenders – those folks that return to our joint again and again. Yous knows the ones. They have all the answers and know exactly how to get the best seats (either by making their reservations far in advance or bein’ VIP guests).  They’s even been known to call in their reservations and ask to sit in his section! These repeat offenders also bring their cheap souvenirs and wear ‘em over and over again. They’re some of our most beloved guests!

Other palookas that come to my speakeasy for the first time are thrilled to have Vito as their server ‘cuz they get consistent service which encourages them to visit again. All of my wait staff will keep your drinks filled, table clean and make sure yous don’t go yappin’ your jaw with Detective Marvel. After all, we’re all here to meet with Vito’s favorite “Italian Opera Lovers Society,” right?

Love Audience Interaction? Meet Bullitts: Featured Wise Guy

Guest Service Spotlight

Most of my guests are lookin’ for a fun time and audience interaction when they attend Capone’s Dinner Show. So’s that’s why havin’ palookas… I mean personable fellas, workin’ at my joint is so important. Yous sees all the dames, servers and wise guys at my speakeasy are special, but this month’s featured ‘goon’ is Bullitts. (Don’t ask me why he spells it that way, it’s just the way it is.)

Meet Bullitts, he offers plenty of audience interaction at Capone's Dinner & Show

Bullitts made his way down from Pawtucket, RI several years ago. In February of 2004 he joined our gang and has been a loyal member of ‘the family’ ever since. Probably ‘cuz he needs the kale to feed his ever-growing family. Yous sees Bullitts has seven children – hince the name, Bullitts. Yous can believe we’ve heard him say, “no ‘shooting blanks’ jokes, folks” more often than we can count! Even at home, Bullitts has an audience, so it jus’ stands to reason why he’s so good at gettin’ a crowd involved. One thing’s for sure, all those mouths to feed keeps Bullitts on his toes and workin’ hard at my joint.

One of the things Bullitts likes best ‘bout working at this Kissimmee dinner show is the atmosphere. He loves interacting with guests and being a goofball. There’s nothin’ like a goofy gangster runnin’ ‘round makin’ people laugh. Speakin’ of runnin’ ‘round… There was a time Bullitts’ hands were full of glassware and his belt decided to break. Wow! What a show! Even with his pants fallin’ down – stopping the show in laughter – Bullitts didn’t skip a beat. What a pal!

Audience Interaction at Capone’s

At Capone’s Dinner & Show, one of our guests’ favorite part is the audience interaction. We can get everyone involved somehow. Even the kids. Then there are some people that jus’ love to heckle. If you’s one of ‘em, Bullitts can out-heckle the best of hecklers! I’d bet on it, if I were a gamblin’ man. Alternately, if you’d rather not get so involved, ask for a table farther away from the action when yous make your reservation. We understand not everyone loves being in the spotlight like Bullitts does. He likes it so much that he wishes we had more than one show a day! Yous know what? Some days we do have two shows! Visit our showtimes page and see when matinees, early shows and late shows take place. More than likely Bullitts will be here waitin’ on yous.

As it is (unfortunately), there are times our guests take the audience interaction a little too personal. Our wise guys are pretty quick to pick up on the high-hats that can’t take a joke. But seriously folks, if Bullitts can joke with a lady in a wheelchair tellin’ her he’s going to switch out her oxygen tank with laughing gas, then yous can lighten up too, capisce?! It’s not like we’re going to put yous in front of the chopper squad if yous smile a little. Forget-about-it…We’re here to have fun!

Excellent Service – Meet ‘Stretch’ Featured Wise Guy

Guest Service Spotlight

If you’s lookin’ for excellent service while havin’ a meal, meet “Stretch.” He’s a real goon… I mean good guy, workin’ at my Speakeasy. All the servers at my joint are special, but this month’s featured ‘bruno’ is Stretch. As yous might be able to see from his mug shot, the numbers don’t lie. Stretch is a tall fella. Hince his name.

Excellent Service by Stretch

Stretch came ‘round from the Tampa area needing cabbage ‘bout two years ago. We’s lucky ‘nough to snag him into our gang. He’s a hard worker always providing excellent service pleasin’ the guests. Even the ones that don’ seem to want to be pleased. Yous know the ones. He takes it real personal when anyone doesn’t respect the experience him an’ his pals have worked so hard to create. So show some respect next time yous see him! Capisce?!

Excellent Service at Capone’s

At Capone’s Dinner & Show, we expect extraordinary guest service and Stretch performs his duties well. So much so that guests ask for him on their return visits. This makes him feel real keen. He has a gift of blendin’ in his unique guest service skills while stayin’ true to his own character. And what a character he is!

One guest liked him so much, they licked his elbow while he was pourin’ a pitcher! We’s don’ know why. Maybe they’s were real thirsty, but we’re hopin’ it was a sign of endearment, not some way of spreadin’ somethin’ we’s don’ need ‘round here. Perhaps they thought they were in some hash house, ‘nstead of my classy joint. Either way, Stretch handled it with professionalism and performed his duties without skipping a beat.

How to Meet Stretch – Buy Cheap Tickets!

If you’d like to meet Stretch, or any of my wise guys and gals here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, we’ve made it easy. Jus’ buy your tickets online at half price! Come to our speakeasy an’ let Stretch an’ the gang show yous a great time. Your entire family will enjoy the show and receive excellent service. The food will fill yous up, and the evenin’ will be one for the history books.

Make Reservations

While you’re my guest at Capone’s Dinner & Show, be sure to meet Stretch. He’s not hard to find; jus’ look for the tallest server here. He loves to meet people of all types. After a long, frustrating day at a theme park, or doin’ whatever you’s doin’, Stretch will turn your day ‘round with excellent service. Your gang will be lookin’ up… and up …and up!

April’s Grand Prize Winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show

Al and the gang wish to congratulate George Seal for being April’s Grand Prize winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show Tuesday, April 25th. During our “25 Years of Memories” anniversary celebration we’ll be giving some lucky stiff a grand prize on the 25th day of each month. Next month it could be you! The next grand prize will be awarded on Thursday, May 25, 2017.

Make Reservations

George, a.k.a. Lefty (now that he is a ‘made’ man) came all the way from Conyers, Georgia just to see the show! Imagine that. What a dedicated family member! Seeings this was Lefty’s first time at our speakeasy, the wise guys and gals had the honor of showing him around. And around. All left turns. Sees that’s why he’s known as “Lefty.” Not because he writes with his left hand. No, he makes a lot of left turns and never wants to be left out!

April’s Grand Prize Winner

“Lefty” was the big winner of April’s anniversary prize.

April’s Grand Prize Winner Experience

Lefty’s favorite part of the show was the food and atmosphere. He was also partial to the staff. Yous sees we work hard to treat yous like family. Only the best will do for our guests!

In fact, Lefty liked the entire Capone’s dinner show experience. He had nothin’ he didn’t take a liken to. What an easy going fella!

Lefty’s prize was $250 in cash and a “C” note to spend in our gift shop. Knowin’ this pal, he’ll probably waste his prize on broads and booze. Okay, so it’s not a waste. We know many of yous would do the same. At least he ‘left’ with some great souvenirs from our gift shop. We have T-shirts, wine glasses, beer mugs, posters, keychains and many other items for sale. Be sure to pick up something to remember your night with the family before or after the all-new show.

Speaking of family, thankfully, Lefty’s family told him about our speakeasy. When relatives show up on your doorstep, Capone’s is a great place to take ‘em to. Where else can you feed a free-loader and keep them entertained for over 2 hours for less than $36 (including tax)? Regardless of the age of your company, our joint is one of the best entertainment values in the Orlando area.

Again, we’d like to congratulate April’s grand prize winner, George Seal. Capone’s Dinner & Show hopes that the evening’s experience was the cat’s meow and will be a great memory for years to come.
