Visani remains a very unique place in the dinning and entertainment world of SW Florida. The food, I will put up against anyones. The comedy, the best around. Put the two together and it is unbeatable. Last night we saw Dale Jones (again). While the soup was good, Dale was GREAT! I've seen him more than a dozen times and he always has fresh material that keeps me laughing. There are some things you need to know to make your visit more enjoyable. First, do no arrive 20 minutes for show time because you will be eating your meal while the comedians are on stage. Visani is best experience arriving about 90-minutes before show time so you can enjoy a nicely paced meals, some drinks, and desert. If you've never been there you will no know they have no microwaves in the kitchen so everything is prepared fresh, which can take a bit longer than the traditional chain eatery that opens the bag, dumps the pasta in a bowl and nukes it. First timers, go for it...I suggest everyone order something different then share so you can sample the heat variety of dishes. Last night our table had the Italian Sampler, Port Marsala, Chicken Parm, and my wife had a chicken over pasta that was a killer. Since being sold in January the food has remained high quality. Regarding the comedians, they remain some of the best on tour. One of the changes by the new owners can be seen in added entertainment nights. They used to be dark Sun and Mon. Example: This Nov. they have comedy shows nine straight days form Nov. 17-25. It's a great place to take visitors!
