“Dinner with a laugh”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

If you drive past Visani's and think it is only a comedy club you would be so wrong. It so much more. The food is always first rate and the staff is very attentive. Mark has made his club a distention were food lovers and comedy lovers can come together and enjoy both at the same time. Try one of his prime steaks you will not be disappointed.

“80th Birthday Party”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Our family celebrated my father's 80th birthday this year and my mother's 75th birthday last year at Visani's. For each event my family hosted 25 family members (all from out of town) for dinner and the comedy show thereafter. The event planning was seamless, the menu was perfect, the food was delicious and everyone enjoyed the show. Most importantly, the service we receive from the staff was tremendous. What is important to note is the service is consistent whether you have a party of 2 or a party of 25. They are pleasant, attentive and anticipate your needs as a guest. Visani's always treats you as if your family! Cynthia

“Anniversary Celebration”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Saturday night celebrated a friends wedding anniversary at Visani's and had a wonderful time, as usual. The food is ALWAYS outstanding and the ambiance in the small diningroom is so inviting and beautiful. From the fresh flowers on the tables to the friendly and attentive service from, not only the wait staff, but also from the owner, Mark, who comes around to check that your experience is going well, you feel like a VIP! Have also been to the large diningroom for the comedy shows and the talent is always top-notch. Even during the week the live musical entertainment compliments the great dining experience in Italian cuisine. Love going to Visani's for group celebrations as well as quiet, romantic dinners.

“80th Birthday Party at Visani's”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This past weekend, we had a Birthday Party at Visani's to celebrate my husband's 80th birthday. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The foods was excellent, and the service was impeccable. I don't know how she did it, but our wait staff, served us, (25 in all) with the same attention to detail, as she does when there are two or four of us. Many of my guest commented on the service, refill on drinks, boxes were offered when she saw that people had food or cake left and coffee was offered to all.

Our seating was perfect, because since most our guests were from out of town, or people We don't see very often. We were able enjoy our friends and they were able to chat with people they had only heard of, but never met.

The staff always makes us feel special. If we are in and have a different waitress, The mother and daughter team each will come over to greet us. If it is extremely busy they will catch our eye in passing and give us a wink and a smile.

Visani is well run, they seem committed to serve there clientel to the best of there ability.
This includes the greeters the wait staff, and last but not least the fabulous cooks.

We can't wait to return.

“A Great Evening Out”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Fantastic entertainment and great food. If you want an evening out with live music and good Italian fare at great prices this is it. We have gone for the MOTOWN entertainment and it's been so much fun. Good food TOO!
