Orlando Dinner Show Reviews

Here is just a small sample of some of the most recent reviews of this Orlando dinner show:

“We were very pleasantly surprised with the great food selection and taste. Plus the show was very entertaining and a lot of fun.”

“This place is so awesome- the show is so much fun and so funny! The buffet style meal is top quality, with plenty to eat and chose from. ONE SUPER DINNER SHOW NIGHT OUT!!!! We have done this show numerous times, and always have a ball!”

“We do enjoy our show and dining. Good shows and good food. Good prices also. and its even good for the kids to enjoy. We visit every Aug and we will until you all shut the doors.”

“We celebrated our first anniversary there on the 1/24. The cast “picked on” my husband the whole show and I have never laughed so much! The food was good and plentiful. Biggest meatballs I’ve ever seen. The drinks were not watered down and the wait staff took really good care of everyone. I’ve told everyone if they go to Orlando, they have to go to Capone’s!”

“Capones has been around for a long time! My family has been going for at least 12 Years… The show is constantly changing and is always entertaining! The servers are sassy and fun, the show is funny and the food is great! Over the past 6 months, the food has even gotten better! (Special thanks to Chef Teddy!!) You can’t go wrong with great food, good entertainment and all you want to drink!! Thanks Capones for a great night out! :)”

The staff at Capone’s Dinner & Show is very appreciative of their huge fan base. In a time where customer satisfaction isn’t always appreciated, the folks at Capone’s Dinner & Show are always willing to do what needs to be done to make the guest’s experience a positive one. The owner, John Kucik, states “While it’s impossible to please all guests we certainly do our best at Capone’s Dinner & Show. If for ANY reason you are dissatisfied with our dinner or show please ask to speak to a manager so we can try to please your party. Guest satisfaction is Capone’s Dinner & Show’s top priority.

Orlando Dinner Show News – Welcome 2014!

Last night’s final performance at Arabian Nights completed the year and 25 years of an Orlando dinner show which many people enjoyed. The talented horses will retire and the riders will go on to new jobs or careers. The final weeks brought sold out crowds and a fitting end to a dinner show well done.

Gaining some publicity in the Orlando dinner show news was a newcomer to the dinner theater business – Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater. You heard correctly – a dinner show featuring wrestling bouts. Currently six shows are scheduled for 2014. Ticket prices are $89 for adults, $60 for kids 4-12 and free for anyone under 3 (discounts are available – look for a half off groupon or discount on open table).

Wrestling Dinner ShowShow Dates (subject to change):

  • March 14
  • April 18
  • June 27
  • August 29
  • October 17
  • December 26

This new Orlando dinner show features a Renaissance Festival-themed story.  Guests have commented that “The matches were cheesy, but to me that is what made it fun.” Dinner consists of salad, roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and vegetables. A kids’ menu is also offered featuring chicken tenders and mac & cheese. Owner, Bryan Smith, is looking for a permanent building. Performances are currently held at the Osceola Heritage Park Exhibition Building.

Keeping steady (and even increasing in popularity) is Capone’s Dinner & Show in south Orlando/west Kissimmee. Look for another successful year for this prohibition era-style Orlando dinner show. When reading reviews on Trip Advisor, it is evident that this show is a winner. As with Arabian Nights, many of the staff have worked here for years which attests to the ownership’s dedication to their employees. Their popularity is also evident on other social media sites. They have over 7,000 “likes” on Facebook!

One question the new year will bring to Capone’s is whether they will stay with a one-show format, or if the two-show format will return. In a post earlier this fall, a poll was taken and those that responded clearly wanted the “Bugs Creates Chaos” show to continue with 50% of the votes. 35% wanted the “Marvel Strikes Back” show to be performed, with only 15% wanting the two-show format. Since the owner and staff are proficient in listening to their audience, it is expected that they will continue with the “Bugs” show only. However, if improvements can be made to the “Marvel” show, it could make a strong return and guests will once again have a choice.

2014 brings new resolutions and if one of those is to spend more time with the family and enjoy something new, an Orlando dinner show would be a great suggestion. Capone’s Dinner & Show is a family-friendly show and the food is great. Half price tickets make it one of the most affordable dinner shows still around. As you say good-bye to 2013, why not say hello to a new year with an evening out at Capone’s Dinner & Show? You’ll have a blast!

New Kissimmee Dinner Show Still Singing Along


It has been replaced with the Big Bang Burlesque.

While Capone’s Dinner & Show featured a new show in celebration of twenty years, this past May a new Kissimmee dinner show made its debut. A slice of Las Vegas came to Kissimmee, specifically to Pacino’s Italian Restaurant reuniting the “Rat Pack and Friends.” After four months, the dinner show is still singing along.

The Rat Pack & Friends is a dinner and tribute show celebrating the days when Las Vegas entertainment meant one thing only – the Rat Pack ruled the strip. Frank, Sammy and Dino brought visitors to the desert by the thousands and were joined by Joey Bishop and other friends raising the bar for live entertainment across the nation. Now this incredible entertainment can be seen right here on Highway 192 in the upstairs theater of Pacino’s Italian Restaurant.

The Rat Pack and Friends

Wind back the clock and settle in for a show that features the “Rat Pack” as well as many other entertainers such as Marilyn and Elvis. Okay, so the entertainers are impersonators – Elvis really has ‘left the building,’ but you may have to look twice (and do not trust your ears) to see that these professional singers are not the real deal. Fast forward the clock and enjoy more recent entertainers such as Gaga, Michael, Katy and Adele. The performances are incredible!

Pre-show entertainment features some of Orlando’s top comics. During their performance guests enjoy a four-course family-style Italian meal. The food has received great reviews, despite a somewhat limited menu. This Kissimmee dinner show naturally shares chefs with the restaurant and thereby benefits greatly, since their cuisine receives high marks from most visitors. Pacino’s has been around for over 25 years and is well-established in the Kissimmee restaurant scene. The dinner show menu includes salad, bruschetta, chicken piccata or lasagna. Included in the cost is draft beer, wine, coffee and soda, and of course, dessert is included – homemade cannolis and puff pastries. For the kids, the menu offers pizza or spaghetti bolognese. Food is served family-style, so be prepared to share your table and pass the plate to new “friends.”

General admission is $59.95 for adults and $39.95 for children 3-11 years. If you want to sit in the VIP reserved seating and receive a better wine selection, upgrade to the VIP for $20 extra. The package also comes with a group photo with the cast members. Now if you really want to go all out, choose the VVIP seating where you’ll dine and drink with Frank at his very own chairman’s table. This package includes seating stage left, full liquor bar, cast photo as well as a post-performance meet-and-greet with the artists in the green room.

Reviews of this Orlando dinner show continue to be mostly positive. Guests say they would return again, and those that have been to some of the big dinner show areanas enjoy the smaller venue. It does help to have a love for this type of music and performances. While the pace of the show is quick, the type of “action” you’ll experience isn’t like some of the other dinner shows. There are no pirates swinging from ships, horses galloping by or gangsters firing machine guns – just great impersonators singing it up for the audience.

The 1 1/2 hour show has limited performances usually scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You’ll not be able to book very far in advance, as they appear to still be trying to fill the theater for the show week by week.  You may purchase tickets through reserve Orlando, or get more information by calling 855-99-RAT-PACK (1-855-997-2872). Rat Pack & Friends is located at 5795 West Irlo Bronson Hwy. in Kissimmee, FL 34746.

So if you’re looking for a dinner show inside an Italian restaurant, check out Pacino’s as well as Capone’s. Capone’s Dinner & Show continues to be a superior choice when it comes to food quality, value and Orlando dinner show opportunities. Make a reservation up to 6 months in advance on any day of the week. Capone’s is open year-round and has a show every night! You may book a private table (if you want some privacy) as well as a VIP package for about the same cost as the Rat Pack and Friends. Be sure to check out Capone’s online coupon.  No, you will not see Sammy or Dean at this Orlando dinner show; just Al and his gang of misfits. If at all possible, save a night for both dinner shows. The live entertainment is sure to take you back in time to either Las Vegas or Chicago, all while never leaving Central Florida!

“Capone’s is the Best!”A couple weeks ago, my husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary, and our first choice of where to spend it was Capone’s Dinner and Show. I’d been once before, earlier this year, with my parents and son during spring break, and I absolutely fell in love with the place. I’d talked about it so much, that my husband immediately suggested we go for our anniversary.We had an absolutely wonderful time! We both thought the food was great- especially my husband, who ate so much he didn’t feel hungry again til the next afternoon! Our server, Bottles, was fantastic, he kept joking with me about my drinking “abilities”, and he never let my rum runner get even close to empty. The show is the best part of the evening, and I can’t say enough good things about the actors. The show is hilarious and silly, in the best possible way. My personal favorite part was the song that “Fingers” does with the servers just before intermission. The choreography in that song had me nearly falling off my chair I was laughing so much. All in all, I love Capone’s, I love how everyone is in character and the “attitude”… and I can’t wait to go back.

The wise guys and gals, and myself, Al, here at Capone’s Dinner & Show thank you for your nice review. Anniversaries and occasions of all types are fun to celebrate at our joint. It is no wonder guests return year after year. A great Orlando dinner show that is fun for everyone!
