You pay for the place.... Food same quality as any other restaurant on Ocean Drive... I was expecting more. Also a 22% gratuity is added to any party which was RIDICULOUS.

Food was the worst food I ever tasted I sent mines back , my friend was to embarrassed to tell them it was bad so we ended up paying 200$ for food in drinks plus 22% service fee and resort fee plus taxes . The scenery was great

Incredible venue, outstanding service wonderful food! Danilo was spectacular at making sure we were well cared for and never had to wait or ask for service. We enjoyed our evening, celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary. We highly recommend for special or any occasions! Thank you Gianni’s.

At one time this place was exclusive and deserved two Michelin stars. Now it’s a tourist place. Olive Garden food Lots of people walking around taking selfies

taking advantage of the former owners fame.

Last Sunday we went to Gianni’s at Villa Casa Casuarina the former Versace mansion, the place is so gorgeous that it is always a special treat and, their lunch menu is really a great deal, for $ 29 for 3 courses, really a fantastic deal. Mind you, our bill was much higher as we did indulge on wine. One thing that I thought was a bit too much was the already included service at 22%, come on, that is exaggerated, I understand including service but, it should be 18% and if someone feels that they have been treated exceptionally, they can add more.
It is also a great place for photos unless you have to deal with super rude Christian, I think he was the manager or something as he was dressed differently from the staff, really rude and for no reason, after our lunch we wanted to take a couple of photos by the pool, by the way it was 4 pm, so, there was almost nobody there anymore, he just wanted to kick us out, very very rude, hopefully, you don’t have to deal with him @versacemansionofficial

I was visiting Miami for the first time and had to see the Versace mansion. I made a reservation during lunch hours. I arrived first out of my party, was escorted to a lounge and bar area. Staff was very nice, they said hi and acknowledged me as they passed even if they weren’t doing anything for me. Food was delicious! I ordered off the lunch menu so portions were smaller than usual, but I was told that before hand. Price was very reasonable for the amount I got and service. I was sat by the pool, and they view was amazing. Really enjoyed my time there!

The ambiance was amazing and service excellent. My only complaint is that I ordered the lamb and it was dry. Definitely needed a sauce of some sort.

worst restaurant experience of my life. Waited 1 hour to be seated even though I had a reservation. upon expressing my frustrations the waiter brought us a complimentary appetizer which had a piece of hair in it ! Terrible. They did not even comp our meal or anything. I will never come back to this establishment. Hostess and waiter were completely rude. Manager was unhelpful. Disappointed by absolutely everything

One of the best restaurants we’ve ever been too. From the beautiful setting to the delicious food it was a truly amazing experience. My daughter and I shared house salad and the ravioli. My husband had cesar salad and the filet. Everything tasted fantastic. Then the chocolate mousse dessert — Omg!! Can’t say enough good things about this place. Definitely go here!!!

Beautiful open air courtyard to have a great meal. Menu is pricey but well worth it considering the venue. Our only disappointment was the service as our waitress seemed more concerned with her conversations with other servers thank our needs. On a few occasions I had to ask buss boys or other servers to send her over. Not sure if this was because her tip is guaranteed by the 22% mandatory service charge added to the check. Regardless, Gianni’s is a must when you are in South Beach!

Las mujeres que se encuentran en la entrada son déspotas y groseras, el servicio y atención de mi mesero fue muy bueno, en general el lugar es bonito pero la primer impresión a la entrada cuenta mucho

Fisrt of all they didn't find my reservation and they sat us as walk ins, when the hostess showed us the table I noticed the tablecloth was dirty We asked to sit on the table right next and she said no because the tablecloth was just changed and it got dirty because a balsamic vinegar bottle, well we sat the service in general was very slow, we asked for a bottle sparkling water they informed us they didn't get delivery what's fine, but 2 minutes later a table next to us got a bottle sparkling water, we asked for another person and finally got the bottle.
I don't know if the lack of service is because they already include 22% tip on the check or they aren't just trained because in general they aren't very polite.
Although the food is good.

Getting to eat at Gianni Versace's mansion was a treat in and of itself! Our waiter was kind enough to give us some history and context to the part of the house where our table was and what Gianni himself had used the space we were in for.
For the price, the value is outstanding. We went for lunch and the 3 courses for $29 prix-fixe menu offered a variety of choices for us to choose from. I had the octopus carpaccio to start ($5 supplementary), the branzino, and gelato to finish. Everything was fresh, the octopus was prepared nicely and the branzino was tender and savory, without being too salty.
At one point, I got up to take a photo (as one does when they are in the Versace mansion lol) and my napkin fell to the ground. When I sat back down, a waiter appeared out of thin air and placed a fresh napkin in my lap. I was surprised by this level of service, as this is the kind of treatment usually reserved for high end (read: expensive) restaurants. It just shows the attention to detail to the overall dining experience here!

Would definitely recommend this place for brunch or lunch if you're in Miami. :) We would return in a heartbeat!

Gianni’s is over rated . Beautiful restaurant but food was terrible . I sent my meal back twice my drink back . Waitress was lovely and great . An expensive meal not worth it . There are better places to go and worth it. Just go for drinks . Severally disappointed

I was in town for a wedding and decided to squeeze in a quick birthday lunch with my husband . The service was amazing. The food was delicious, that lunch special for $29 pp had great choices to choose from. I had a great time there.
