Sehr schicker Italiener. Überragendes Ambiente mit Live Musik. Kein typisches „amerikanisches“ italienisches Restaurant sonder sehr gutes „echtes“ italienisches Essen.

Lovely restaurant. Great ambiance. Very expensive. Valet is $30. Park around corner for $8. Drinks insanely expensive. $26 for drink. Don’t expect to walk out of lunch for less than $250. If no concern for price. Food very good but smaller portions. Salmon was excellent. Salads fresh.

Personale del locale molto accogliente e attento ad ogni esigenza del cliente. Atmosfera e luogo d’incanto. Cibo buono ma nulla di eclatante.

First off.... wow! The ambience, the aura, the feel, and the energy is completely dreamy. I’ve eaten at a lot of high end restaurants in my life, but the feeling while having dinner inside this mansion is like no other. It really is stunning.
They sat us at a table right next to the pool and I could not of asked for anything better. They had a guy playing the saxophone, that came right up to our table and played lovely music to my fiancé. It really was something out of a movie.
The food was pretty good. For me, I could not rate the food on the same caliber as the ambience. I had a 20oz prime rib, and my fiancé had a 8oz filet mignon. There was nothing really really amazing about it. You would hope that walking through such an amazing mansion to your beautiful table setting that your food would be above and beyond. That just was not the case here. The food was not bad. It just wasn’t what I expected. The mashed potatoes were really dry. Just off the food, I would give it 3.5 out of 5.
I am no stranger to paying top dollar for great food. The price of each meal was not out of this world. I just wish the food was better for what we paid. Our meal for 2, with a bottle of wine came out to $201. BUT!.. The restaurant adds a service charge of 22%! On top of the bill. Which made it about $268. What is this charge for? That has nothing to do with gratuity. So we had to pay gratuity on top of $268 which brought our bill to $335!
If it was not for the shear beauty and the detail that Gianni Versace put into this place, also his story that goes along with it, I would not recommend this place to eat. But because all of the factors I mentioned above.. I would definitely recommend at least to experience it once. It really is beautiful. Would of just liked for a heads up on the extra “service charge “ and for a little better cooked food. Big thanks to the lady that served our table. She did an awesome job as well.

La verdad es sitio es muy bonito, no soy fan del estilo arquitectónico que tiene pero es interesante; ahora la comida me pareció buena pero normal, no fue nada espectacular ni memorable! Como experiencia si es bueno, pero no repetiría! El ambiente es agradable y sobrio, elegante! Aunque el código de vestimenta realmente es solo en papel.... En general el staff es bastante agradable, y sola persona (no recuerdo el nombre) fue bastante ruda.

Great experience. Great photo opportunities. The food is good, not outstanding and pricey but very expected. The ambiance is exquisite. I wish we could have seen some secret rooms or done a tour of some sorts but we were not disappointed. There is also a gazebo for perhaps engagements or weddings which was beautiful!

It’s a beautiful place with a lot of history. Service was strange. Loads of servers but these people could not take an order. We had to wait 15 minutes before the waiter arrived—so we could order drinks . The waiter took the order and did very little later. Neither the servers nor the waiters followed the tables.

Food, however, was very good and made up for the rather pompous service structure.

It was an enjoyable night overall in a rather magical setting . Worth a trip but not cheap and you may need to hold your tongue while you wait for service .

The food was good. Way better the the former "Giannis" . My service was bad and they didn't honor the bday request. I felt bad because I think our server was just overworked and overwhelmed but I still was pretty annoyed. We paid about 170 w/o tip for lunch for 4 people. Ambiance was nice but the place looked better without the people in the pool at lunch and all the extra tables.

We were served by Ernesto, and he made the experience unbelievable! I highly recommend you try and get him as your server. He took the time to explain the history of the house/hotel, took us around the pool area to take several pictures of us, and at the end of the night, even after being done paying, he took us around the house to show us the different rooms and explained more about the history. Truly remarkable service! Food was excellent, the house/hotel is stunning, and the service by Ernesto was honestly the best service I've ever had in my life. Thank you for making our visit so special!

The place is absolutely beautiful for an anniversary or a date. The food was good but nothing out of this world. But it’s definitely a must go, just for the fact that you’re in the Versace mansion!

What a beautiful location for lunch. We sat in the dining room with beautiful stone walls and painted ceiling. We choose the 3 course lunch for $29. There were many options for the appetizers and lunch with a few of them having an up charge. Food was good. Lunch wine prices were reasonable. Definitely a fun experience.

First they brought our food in 5 minutes. There is no way that our meal was going to be ready so quickly and it was cold and hard.

Secondly they brought the bread after we already started eating.

Third, our waiter was awful, the worst service ever.

I ended up calling someone else to take the plates out of the table because our waiter were I don’t know where.

The other waiter brought us a glass of wine apologizing but still I would never go back to this restaurant.

Food was good, very limited options for vegetarians but it was good. Service wasnt great, staff said we were allowed pictures by the pool, lots of people got them then a very rude staff member pushed us all away. Paying £100+ for lunch I thought we could at least get one picture.

No fue una buena experiencia. Llegamos a las 22hs y se pusieron a desocupar de mesas y sillas y limpiar el patio entero, apenas empezamos a comer. Fue muy incomodo.
Nuestra mesa para dos era muy chica, imposible comer cómodos con lo poco que pedimos.
La atencion del personal fue buena y cordial.
La comida no está al nivel de lo que se paga, la carne fria, muy cocida por fuera y roja por dentro, no estaba cocida 3/4 como pedi, el pure con trufas seco siendo lo mas sencillo de preparar. Los ravioles estaban muy bien, la copa de vino era pequeña, demasiado. Gaste 216 dolares y no lo valia lamentablemente.

I just want to say that I had one of the best nights of my life at Gianni’s in the versace villa. The service was great, the food was so delicious, the view amazing. Of course it was expensive but it was worth every dime. The night went exactly as I had planned. We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday. I will definitely be going back there again.

There was no mention when I made the reservation that there was no inside dining. The heat made it difficult to enjoy eating. At the end of my meal the Server pointed out the space for additional gratuity on top of the 22% already added to my bill. Overall it was a nice photo opp but in my opinion completely a waist of money.

This is a historic building( the Versace Mansion) in Miami Beach Florida. It is beautiful structure with a great ambience.
The service is good, the food is fair to good, and the wine list is also good.

However, they have a dress code that because of profit they have allowed it to be violated.
You could have some one in a suite and somebody else in shorts and t-shirt.

It should be one of the other.Just my opinion.

Reserved a table for 7 people a week ahead with a special request to sit outside by the pool. We get there and they tell me that the table will be ready in 15 minutes. That 15 minutes turned into an hour and 20 minutes with me consonantly asking them how long it will take for our table to be ready. If someone made a reservation, they should hold a table especially for a party of 7. But that was just the beginning..... Our waiter was the worst part. He forgot every single thing we would ask him for . I mean literally (even the lemon for water). He even forgot one of the dishes we had ordered lolllll. We had to ask him for something 3 times for him to remember to bring it m. Our water and bottle of wine was never refilled . My father in law was refilling our glasses lolll. No attention at all . The food is overpriced with average quality of food. Just go for the drinks and to see the Versace mansion. That’s all it’s good for. This was for Thursday night reservation for 9pm (didn’t think they would have an issue holding a table ).

Excellent Restaurant in Outstanding setting
We went to Giannis in Miami to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday, it was a stunning setting with delicious food and exceptional service. Our waiter Cindy and her manager Cristian really was five star and ensured that we had a fantastic evening! We opted to sit inside as it was quite windy and were seated in a small dining room which was very lovely, outside dining was absolutely stunning overlooking the swimming pool. My husband had fillet Mignon and I had gnocchi, then we shared triple chocolate mousse for dessert which was really impressive . Don't be put off by the prices here it really is worth the money for a special treat.
Fabulous food and service and just brilliant surroundings.

You are paying for the experience of visiting the Villa. The food is not amazing, it wasn’t bad, but nothing extraordinary at all.
The staff is used to deal with a lot of tourist -obviously- so they do not really care much about presenting the food nor setting up the table in the nicest way. They just want you in and out as fast as possible. They were friendly but that was it, I believe 22% gratuity is quite high for what they offered.
