The Versace Mansion is definitely an experience... absolutely stunning!! The ambiance is very romantic and the detail in every room is breathtaking BUT the food is VERY expensive and TERRIBLE. I took my husband there for his 40th birthday and besides our AMAZING server, Ernesto, and the ambiance, our dinner was incredibly disappointing. We ordered the black truffle risotto which was grainy and tasteless. The Spanish octopus was cooked perfectly but came out cold. Bread was fresh... cocktails were great!! This place is worth coming to for cocktails and maybe dessert?? We were turned off that we didn’t get to it.
Also, the manager Raj was AWESOME!!!

Our server Katie was fantastic and knew everything about the wine, menu and history of the house! She made my husband and I feel like we were the only guest in the restaurant and I cannot say enough about the delicious Prosecco, Tuna Tartare, Pasta Pescarte and White Lava Cake!!!! LOVE THIS PLACE!

You don't come here for the food, but rather to gawk at the opulence that is the Versace mansion. That said, lunch is a fantastic deal, and features simple fresh Mediterranean style cooking.

We arrived at the restaurant and was asked to sit outside and wait. We waited 15 minutes while we watched people in jeans entering the restaurant behind us. Eventually we were escorted inside thinking we were going to be seated but we we told to wait in a small bar area that had a seating area and no service. We were 3 women and had to go to the bar and wait for service only to pay $60.00 for 3 glasses of wine. After approximately a half hour, we we escorted into the main dining room which was absolutely gorgeous ! However, we then waited 15 minutes for a waiter to come to the table. We ordered a bottle of wine that was mis-priced and upon questioning it, the manager denied the mistake in the menu but offered us 3 glasses of wine to make up for our increased expense.
Food arrived very quickly and was excellent.
Overall experiences as ok- worth a trip to see the beautiful mansion, but expect to wait and get ripped off!

A wonderful location and enjoyable dinner by the pool. Our server AJ was fantastic and made the evening one to remember. The heavily spiced old fashioned had a price point that left some to be desired but the octopus was delicious over mashed potato instead of polenta. One distraction is the amount of people who are there to blast social media with photos at a location over the experience of dining at a location.

Gianni's certainly has the WOW factor - highlighted in the Tuscan Monasterial building and then the really glamourous and eye-popping pool terrace restaurant. Busy, buzzy and good food. Well worth the visit if you're in Miami Beach !
Maitre'd was very friendly, professional and helpful.

The location - in the former Versace mansion - was excellent.

Ambiance is tricky issue.
The setting was wonderful, but
Only negative was that it was outdoors, overlooking the mosiac pool, but the weather was rather cold.
Not their fault, but impacted the ambience.

The live sax music did compensate a bit.

Beautiful venue with comfortable seating around the pool or in the inner courtyard. The wait staff are well trained, friendly and highly attentive. The price fixed lunch was quite reasonable for the quality of food offered. I would wholeheartedly recommend Gianni's for a romantic lunch or dinner.

The entire staff was great, superb customer service from the time I checked in to seating and greeting. The food was amazing. Appetizers very nice portions and the meal was exceptional.

The service was amazing! Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. They had a comprehensive wine list and a good selection of Italian food.

We were sat outside by the pool and the view was beautiful. The Versace cat came by our table for the majority of our dinner to say hi.

I will definitely be recommending to everyone I know visiting Miami for a special occasion dinner.

A very lovely memorable lunch - lovely authentic Italian food, served by Valentina - so friendly and attentive.
The wild salmon and sorbets for desert were sublime. Such a beautiful house - it was breathtaking.
Busy but not crowded - it was so relaxing dining there I would love to return one day.

The food was good, although very expensive. I dined with a friend and the fixed menu (lunch), plus a bottle of water and a bottle of wine cost us $250. The service was very sloppy and the restaurant wasn’t overly busy. A standard of 22% is automatically added to the bill for service.

Poor service. Seated one hour after reservation time, even when raining. When i pointed this out, i was told it was the owners practice to overbook and i should write an online review. So, i have been inspired to write my first review. Mediocre food on a rigid menu i would expect for a banquet setting rather than a proper restaurant. Would neither recommend nor return despite the interesting setting. This should probably all be expected as this is a disney-esque experience and i wouldnt attend the princess lunch at the castle expecting a particularly fine experience. Service and food quality are likely not particularly important to the team here as the setting ensures steady flow of one time tourists. Next time i would recommend making a reservation for dinner so you can get in, having an overpriced drink at the bar, and leaving quickly after seeing the sights.

Good was ok though....

Incredible ambiance! The food was good, but not great when compared to the venue and pricing. In fact, our server made the comment that "people either love our food, or hate it." I think this was more of a youth thing trying to make congenial conversation. Notwithstanding, the service was outstanding. Love the sax player...adds to the ambiance.
