Capo’s Restaurant and Speakeasy founder Nico Santucci is also a filmmaker. And, he’s made a film, “Sarogeto,” being premiered at the Action On Film Megafest at Galaxy Theaters Boulevard Mall.

Santucci wrote and directed the film over the past 18 months. Eric Roberts (“Star 80,” “Runaway Train”) is in the cast. So is Angelica Bridges, whom we got to know during her stint as singer in “Fantasy” at Luxor about a decade ago.

Santucci, whose restaurant was given a once-over a couple months ago on “Bar Rescue,” says he’s pleased the film has picked up recognition at several film festivals. This year, he submitted “Sarogeto” in the Vegas Film Festival and the Las Vegas Asian Film Festival.

“It’s been an incubator for a year and a half, nobody knew about it, so I had no gauge about how it would be received,” Santucci said. “The first time I saw it with other people was in a theater, and the response was great. It’s been very rewarding. We’ll see where it goes.”
