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!

This restaurant is top notch! Everything was great from the cocktails to the dinner to the atmosphere to the wait staff. We couldn’t have asked for a better Valentines Dinner. We will be back.

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

The ambiance is second to none, but the hostess is so rude, you hardly want to go in. The food was good, not great. And we left a scarf behind that was nowhere to be found when we called for it. Someone else is now wearing our LV scarf.

When I booked the reservation I didn’t notice the attire was business casual and all two travelers in my party brought were fancy flip flops. The hostess gave us a really hard time and argued with me when I said the attire wasn’t listed on Open Table. She made two of the people in our group feel bad about what they were wearing then told us she would have to get her manager’s approval to let us in! He approved and apologized when one person in my party said she was rude and her treatment of us was uncalled for. As he walked us to another hostess for seating, we passed a private party and noted that the attendees were wearing sneakers! Almost no one was dressed business casual! We were seated on the top deck overlooking the pool area, the atmosphere was fantastic and the waiter good, but a little snooty. The food was delicious, though they only give you three very small lamb chops in an order and for the price it didn’t seem like enough. Overall though everyone enjoyed their meal. I would consider returning but definitely make sure everyone in my party was dressed so as not to be made to feel like we weren’t welcome!

Beautiful setting and decor. Staff is numerous and courteous. But kitchen was slow and steak temperature was not as requested. Food was ok, not extraordinary. Minestrone soup was watery and tasteless. Prices are outrageously high. Overall expectations were not met.

We loved it! Great atmosphere, servers were wonderful, food was very good and we had a great time. The hostess certainly was arrogant and rude, but once you get past her it’s a great experience.

Decided to go to the Art Deco District when we stumbled upon this place. Host said we needed a reservation. I was skeptical so I opened up my opentable app and saw I could make a reservation. Made a reservation and showed up again with my reservation and everything was smooth sailing from there. Thanks opentable for saving the day and thabk you Gianni’s for the wonderful experience.

A great experience in this well-known scenic historic mansion. The service was excellent and the food was as well. I had delicious gnocchi with truffles and it was a real treat. My guest had the ravioli and said it was some of the best she had eaten. The calamari was fried perfectly. We really enjoyed the Nutella Medusa Lava Cake. Overall a great experience and I'll be back for more. Make sure to check out the bar area with some great handcrafted cocktails before dinner. The bartenders were so nice and made great drinks.

Good food, slow service. Expect 2-2.5 hours for lunch on a weekday because it took them a while to bring our main course (almost an hour since getting the appetizer)
