I got 3 antipasti (octopus, risotto and crab salad) and one pasta (orecchiette), none of them was worth the price and the service. Octopus came with a spicy-tomato-pepperoni-mexicostyle sauce. Risotto with truffles and mushrooms was without any taste. Then combining a mozzarella cheese with stone crab is simply disgusting, the milky taste of the cheese simply overpass the gentle, delicious and delicate savour of the crab meat. And finally the orecchiette, very easy pasta to make, but I guess the chef has never lived or simply touch an Italian dish. Wine: we asked for a bottle of 2015 Chablis but we got a Chablis 2017 because the first was sold out.

Everything about dining at Gianni’s was impeccable. The service was outstanding, the ambiance was great, & the food was perfect. You go here having high expectations & you leave with all of those expectations met and more. From the second we stepped foot on the steps out front to the second we left, we were treated with respect and everyone was polite.

Valentina was a tremendous server - will certainly be going back.

We took a guest from California at her request. Atmosphere is beautiful, but food is pretty lousy and service not very professional. You might be best to have a drink or 2 here so you can enjoy the surroundings. Take plenty of money.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Vianni/Versace. The service was nice and quick, the menu interesting. The only remarck would be about the 22% add to our bill for service. With the price of the meals it was exagerated.

The location was superb and look was lovely however here is what lets it down:
1) Quality of staff
2) Service

The staff employed do not represent elegance which is what the Versace brand and Gianni Versace stand for. Even though this is not owned by Versace anymore, the place is let down by the quality of the staff working there. The professionalism is poor especially at reception, they don't make you feel special for the price you pay. Also the food is awful. Not worth the money going here. I wouldn't go back here again unless It was to show someone the house. The restaurant food and service is just so poor.

We ordered an orange juice, the server forgot to bring it, but he did included in a check. Also, we ordered a bottle of Prosecco, the server brought us an another bottle, it called Brut. It costed more, we just realized this when we saw in check. The server just told us after we asked him, why it costs more than in a menu, he says that you didn’t have a prosecco, so he just brought us an another bottle without asking us if we want it. For what we paid 22% a service charge, we don’t understand

Celebrating our wedding anniversary this week, we went to the Forge on a Tuesday and today to Gianni’s, unfortunately Gianni’s is to dry and didn’t meet our expectations. Nothing was said for our special week/wedding anniversary. We did love the Forge and can’t wait to go back again.

We went for lunch and took lots of pictures. The lunch menu looks fine, but the salmon was over fried and dry, as was the fish of the day.

Had high hopes for this place. The ambiance and decor are beautiful, but the food was overpriced for a subpar meal, and the service was atrocious. My husband and I each ordered a drink, 1 app to share, and 2 entrees. We received our drinks some time later and were forced to place our whole order at that time. We never saw our waitress again, until we flagged her down to ask for our check. Weren't offered coffee, weren't offered desert, weren't even asked how our food was. This whole excursion took about 2 hours, and we were forced for pay a 22% gratuity on top of that. Not that we don't tip 20% or greater, it's just a slap in the face to reward such poor service with such a high tip... probably why our server "rina" I think her name was (blonde, Eastern European accent, wearing a green scrunchie in her ponytail) felt justified in her quality of service.

We made a same day reservation as we were staying at The Dream Hotel in South Beach, Miami, and Gianni’s is literally the building in front of us.

The entrance and interior is what you’d expect if you’ve seen anything about the home where Gianni Versace used to live.

The staff is extremely polite and professional. The food was unexpectedly wonderful and portioned properly.

It’s definitely a romantic place to have dinner and a special gem in the heart of South Beach, Miami.

Worth a visit, just to see the home. 3 course lunch for $29 is not bad, but quite a few items had a supplemental up charge. Food is good, but not outstanding. The 22% gratuity added to the bill is pretty outrageous. Staff was friendly and professional.

Our dinner at Gianni's was excellent. The food was excellent, the service was good, and the ambiance… just amazing! The only complaint is that the food took a little longer than expected, but we were told that the restaurant has a small kitchen as they are not allowed to make changes to the mansion.
