Food was not bad, but very very average and not nearly in line with the prices. Lovely ambiance, impressive space. Arrive was fine/good, not amazing. I agree the 22% standard gratuity is absurd, especially on a table of two. Everyone is there to gawk and take pictures. They’re constantly up from their tables milling about taking videos etc. No one is there for the food and management knows it.

The food was just so so .. vegetables were cold. they have installed an awning that has taken away from. the outdoor openness of the mansion and destroyed the ambience of Versace’s Vision and dream of the pool area it’s tacky and awkward looking ... Asked for it to be opened o was told it was going to rain there wasn’t a cloud in the sky it was a equatorial clear miami Noah hy .. use your radar people .. it takes minutes to open and close this monstrous eye Soar.. never go back again and won’t . Recommend it .much better places in miami and

After years of saying "we should go", my husband and I finally made it to Gianni's. We ordered a bottle of champagne and after 25 minutes, the server came back with a warm bottle letting us know they were going to put it on ice for a bit. We told them not to worry about it and put in an order for our appetizers. The appetizers were delicious, however it took another 20 minutes for the server to come back around to refill waters and to take the plates. We felt like we sat there waiting a lot and the staff was just not attentive. I don't think we are impatient or demanding, however after dining at Cipriani the night before and Il Mulino the night before that, the lack of service definitely jumped out and we left after our appetizers. The place is beautiful and definitely a must see, however i'm not sure if the already included tip in the bill is one of the reasons that service is lacking. Maybe if they had to work for it the service would be better.
Also, i think having some chilled bottles ready to go, especially during the 8pm dinner rush would better serve the restaurant.

Awesome inside look at the former Versace mansion. Amazing architecture, design, art, details! Food was above average and reasonably priced. Drinks are overpriced, Wow! $20 for a glass of average wine is ridiculous. Martinis averaging $25 is over the top.

They need to be understanding of customers on taking pictures near the pool because we were told not to take photos near the pool because guests were there even though we were taking pictures where the guests aren’t in the camera. I understand it’s for privacy matters but we should be allowed to take photos as long as the guests aren't in the photos

Amazing Building. Food was average, in fact not very tasty. Our risottos were pretty plain. The octopus gas good. The service needs to improve, wine bottles were late, no one refilling our glasses or asking how we were doing or offering for more wine or bottles, food took a while although some of us ordered the Miami spice menu and some others the same dishes from the regular menu (exactly the same but bigger portions). They have an amazing patio that is covered by an electric roof. Half of it was not covering our table and started to rain. When we asked to have that portion covered, the waiter told us “No, it will stop in a minute” Despite his assurance, weather tends to do it’s own thing in Florida, so it didn’t and we finally got moved to another table because the roof was not working.
For the price we paid there are at least 100 better restaurants for eating an drinking and cordial service in Miami. However, the palazzo is to die for.
Our advice, just go to check it out and have a drink at the bar and dinner anywhere else.
