This is a great comedy club. We have been several and were never disappointed in the food or the talent.

Between Sarasota and Ft. Myers, there is no competition for top rate comic entertainers and authentic Italian menu options. Intimate, great acoustics, efficient servers, reasonable drinks and affordable meal selections. Just a Blast. Check out their website for all the show and menu. Always accurate.

We had two Italian dishes and one steak - the meals were excellent and the service was good. There was a bit of a musty smell in the foyer and dining room, though (not the theater).
