My main dish was cold and had a bug dying in it and we didn’t get a discount. The server was appalled when we asked for condiments for a burger. Total tourist trap, overpriced and not worth it. It felt like Disney world. Not good quality. Gianni is turning over in his grave!

Io e mio marito siamo italiani e abbiamo scelto questo ristorante per festeggiare il mio 30esimo compleanno .
Per il nome che porta la villa ci aspettavamo cibo e servizio di alta qualità ma, purtroppo , fin da subito così non è stato: l' attesa è stata di un'ora abbondante nonostante la prenotazione ( nella quale siamo stati gentilmente accompagnati al bar per poter bere qualcosa nel frattempo.. bel gesto se almeno fosse stato offerto come tutti fanno.. )
Per quanto riguarda il cibo non possiamo dire di aver mangiato male (dato lo standard americano ) ma , nonostante la scelta sia ricaduta su semplicissimi piatti , da italiani buongustai non siamo stati soddisfatti..
I prezzi sono alti e non giustificati se non per la bellissima location .
Possiamo definire questo tipo di esperienza molto commerciale : fa tutto solo il nome .
Se dovessi consigliare , lo consiglierei a chi vuole fare il " figo" e postare qualche foto /storia su instagram.. a chi vuole mangiare bene consiglierei altro .

The staff here is very kind, they made sure we were well taken care off. Our waiter, Juan, met all of our needs and would definitely come back thanks to him .

Great ambience sat in the courtyard in the sunshine, the lunch menu was good value and the food was really tasty. The service was also very good. The only downside was the charge for a bottle of water, our glasses kept getting topped up without being fully aware of how much we were drinking and 3 bottles ended up costing $36!

Birthday dinner fun. Nice open air courtyard by mosaic pool. Lush landscaping. Nice vibe. Dover sole was fab. Waiter not too attentive. Water never refilled , bread awful & did not get my mashed potatoes w/ truffles but did not bother to ask him where they were & forgot to see if charged for them. Oh well... Family had a good time anyway. Steep stairs from lobby area to dining. Maybe they have an elevator if one needs but don’t know. Need reservations !!!

5/6 oysters had loose shell pieces that caused a cut on my gums. Very small portions compared to other restaurants at this price point. My advice go for a drink, don’t eat

Second time here. Both times I was most impressed with their professional servers. Very kind, unpretentious. Food was fantastic. Had the Dover Sole deboned table-side. Eating in the courtyard is just magical.
Only complaint. 3 of us for dinner, so they put us on a 2-top which really made the table cramped.

The venue is beautiful, and the ambiance is certainly world class. But, the Resturant misses world class cuisine by a wide margin.

The hostess showing us to the table was condescending when we asked to be moved from an unappealing table.

The staff was very professional, but not well trained. And they are certainly not well trained to work as a team. Appetizers arrived before wine and cocktails. And the service seemed rushed to get you in and out for the table to be turned over for the next load of tourists.

My Bronzino arrived cold. The cauliflower was basically raw and cold. Unfortunately, we never saw the waiter again during the meal to have it adjusted or reheated.

Long after the service staff took my uneaten meal away. The waiter reappeared to take a dessert order..

My advice: Go for a drink to see a spectacular venue. Go somewhere else for a spectacular meal.

The food is average and extremely overpriced. You’re basically paying for being in the old Versace mansion.

The menu did not have much to choose from. I was expected more Italian options. I went with a friend who dying to know the place and when I made the reservation I specified that I wanted a table outside, but I did not get the table. The front desk lady inside, who was very rude by the way, said it was wet because it was raining but I went out to take a picture, there were EMPTY tables and people were eating there.
The facilities in general do not look very well maintained. The only good thing was the waitre who give us a very nice experience.

It was my girlfriends birthday lunch and it was raining. Unfortunately the restaurant is not equipped to handle rain because the plastic tarps are crap and don’t do the job. I was actually sitting trying to eat my food and it was raining on me! Is that normal? They moved us 3 times but to no avail. I complained to the manager but he did absolutely nothing. Bad business! My friends salmon was undercooked but when we mentioned it to the waitress she said no it’s always overcooked! The 3 course prix fixed meal was okay but the dessert was very plain and uninspired. They could’ve done better than that. And then they had the nerve to add on a 22% tip/service charge. Unbelievable! We are LOCALS not tourists! We could actually return but of course we won’t. Shame on the manager of this restaurant!

Lovely time. Friendly staff. The rain is what made things a little off, however, you can’t control the weather, overall it was nice. Food was delicious, but lunch portions are extremely small.

Very beautiful atmosphere and ambiance. The service was a 4/5. Very polite servers, but most likely somewhat overwhelmed with the amount of tables they each had to serve, making it difficult to serve in a timely fashion. Food was also 4/5.

Attractive venue, extremely poor service. We waited over an hour and a half for our food, which was poor quality (steak & lamb chops). Several tables around us gave up and left before their food arrived. Waiter was very apologetic, but clearly in over their heads.... Very disappointing!

Lunch is a bargain in this gorgeous space next to the pool. $29 for three course lunch. Choices are limited, but who's complaining. Beautifully presented dishes in a beautiful setting. Too bad some of the clientele think that shorts and a tshirt are appropriate. Think they should have a dress code.

A beautiful venue. We dined outside in the courtyard. Waitperson was very nice but back staff was highly inefficient. Had to ask for lemon 4 times. They too away unused salad utensils before the salad course and when we asked for a formal split in a salad a back person brought one bowl and plopped it in the middle of the table. I reminded that we wanted to share that course and she brought back a spoon and placed it in the bowl. Not what you would expect when you are paying nearly $500 for dinner and wine. I politely complained to our server and suddenly her back staff woke up and became attentive but it was too little too late. Very pretty restaurant but the service was horrible and the food was just average
