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?

If you’d like to meet Vito, or any of my wise guys and gals here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, yous can do so with ‘free’ dinner show tickets. Jus’ make your reservations online.

Or better yet, get front row seats and catch him! So’s what’s keepin’ yous from visitin’? Come see my cabaret show, have dinner and spend some time with Vito’s family.

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!

How to Meet Bullitts – Buy Discounted Dinner Show Tickets!

If you’d like to meet Bullitts, or any of my wise guys and gals here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, we’ve made it easy. Jus’ make your reservations online and get half price tickets! Come to our speakeasy an’ be part of the great audience interaction that Bullitts an’ the gang make happen every evening.

St. Patrick’s Day at Capone’s Dinner & Show

St. Patrick’s Day at Capone’s Dinner & Show may not offer green beer, but there are plenty of colorful characters to ‘sip’ on. Capone’s Dinner & Show celebrates every holiday, and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. Named after Saint Patrick (387–493AD), it is a holiday primarily celebrated in Ireland and places where there are large numbers of Irish immigrants, including the United States. For the most part, it is a reason to eat, drink and be merry! What better place to do so than at this Orlando dinner show!

St. Patrick’s Day at Capone’s Dinner & Show

With a delicious buffet; unlimited drinks (including alcoholic beverages) and a hilarious show included in a HALF PRICE TICKET you’ll be carrying on like a true Irishman. You won’t find boxty, barmbrack or shepherds pie on the menu (this is Mama Capone’s kitchen after all), however, there are plenty of American & Italian dishes to enjoy. A salad bar filled with fresh seasonal veggies & toppings. Fresh pasta with many sauce (gravy) choices. A meat carving station and a buffet filled with favorites your entire family will love. It is by far the best value of all the Orlando dinner shows. Even parking is free!

Join Al, Bugs and the rest of the gang for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration that’ll leave you feeling very lucky, especially during the gangster shoot out! Here come the big guns and the guests will be getting into the action. It’s a fun time for the entire family, no matter what age. St. Patrick’s Day at Capone’s Dinner & Show is the perfect solution if you have a group made up of several ages. Read the many testimonials, even families with children can enjoy this St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

Unlike a four-leaf clover, which is very hard to find, in Orlando you’ll find a large number of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations being held at just about every bar or tavern. If you’re already at Universal’s City Walk, you’ll not want to miss the Corned Beef & Cabbage, Corned Beef Sandwiches and Potato Leek Soup at Pat O’Brien’s and, of course, plenty of drink specials, including their Fuzzy Leprechauns. At Disney Springs there is Raglan Road, featuring Sheperd’s pie, Irish musicians and dancers, and a large selection of Irish whiskey. Also near Disney in Celebration is Mulligan’s Pub or on International Drive, the Lucky Leprechaun Irish Pub.

Other young professionals will be ‘going green’ in downtown Orlando at the Celt Irish Pub – a nice place to eat and celebrate this holiday or any day of the year. Further away from the downtown scene are other Irish favorites; the Green Parrot located in Casselberry and Fiddlers Green Irish Pub located on Fairbanks Ave. in Winter Park. These local favorites are sure to be popular on St. Patrick’s Day.

If you are looking for a fun night out, without a LOT of blarney, St. Patrick’s Day at Capone’s Dinner & Show is a safe bet. You won’t have to find a pot of gold to afford it either. Come have a toast with the wise guys…

“Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold pint and another one!”

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

Al and the gang wish to congratulate Cristy Miller for being June’s Grand Prize winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show Sunday, June 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 Tuesday, July 25, 2017.

Make Reservations

Cristy, a.k.a. Chris (now that she is one of Al’s gals) came all the way from Pennsylvania just to see the show! Imagine that. What a dedicated broad! If Chris had been around during the Progressive Era, she would know that PA has quite a history with speakeasies. In fact, in the early 1920s, there were as many as 16,000 speakeasy establishments active during Prohibition. Known for their breweries, this part of our Nation didn’t give up easily on its giggle juice. If you’d like to read more about Chris’s home state during Prohibition, Annie Anderson has written an excellent article.

This was Chris’s first visit to our speakeasy dinner show. She discovered our joint by reading an advertisement. Glad it caught her attention! Hoping to earn her approval, the gang worked very hard, as they do each evening. Of course, the prize she won would have gotten anyone’s approval. At the end of the evening, thankfully, she gave us a thumbs up! She’s not the only one approving of our job here. Capone’s Dinner & Show has recently been awarded a Certificate of Excellence for the 7th year in a row by Trip Advisor. But more on that later…back to our June’s grand prize winner.

June’s Grand Prize winner

“Chris” was the big winner of June’s anniversary prize, seen here with the gang with thumbs up indicating her approval.

June’s Grand Prize Winner Experience

Chris’s favorite part of the evening was the show. The new show really is our best yet. Experience it yourself. You’ll feel like a true part of this prohibition era speakeasy as you dodge questions from a snooping Detective, watch dancing dames, hear smooth and exciting jazz vocals, and laugh at our quick-witted gangsters. Don’t be surprised if you become a part of the show!

The least favorite part of Chris’s experience was “nothing.” Nothin’! Zilch! Zippo! A big goose egg! Just the way we like it. From the time you enter the theater to the time you depart, our mob is trying to make your experience at our Orlando dinner show great in every way.

Chris’s prize was two and a half Cs in her pocket, plus a C note to spend in our very own gift shop. But wait, that’s not all. She also received 4 free tickets to Capone’s Dinner & Show! Now she can become a repeat offender and drag some other members of her gang in with her. You’d think she would spend her winnings on her return visit here, but no. She claims she is spending her winnings at some clip joint called Disney. Guess the mouse will be glad to hear that!

Again, we’d like to congratulate June’s grand prize winner, Cristy Miller. The gang at 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.
