We traveled to Miami for Art Basel and took advantage of some of South Beach's finest dining. The experience at Il Sole was something we looked forward to given the history and the property was stunning. Sadly, the service and the food left a great deal to be desired. I rarely complain and don't really mean to do so here.... More

What more can I say? The mansion where Gianni Versace lived (and died). The decor itself is enough to get you there. The food was excellent and the wine director was really great (and not pushy on the price!).

I dined here while staying at VILLA by Barton G. The food here is amazing. The dishes are so creative and mouth watering. I will visit Miami again just to dine here again. The service is great to go along with the exceptional food.

As others have said, this is a beautiful place and worth a poor meal. The poached lobster in butter sauce sounded good and ended up being just OK. The lamb/beef pappardelle with bolognaise sauce (homemade) was overcooked and gummy and the sauce was a little too acidic. But the cheese bread was good (the best part of the food IMHO)... More

We had friends in from out of town and wanted to take them somewhere that would be memorable. We decided to book a table at Il Sole. We are so happy we did. Stepping into the Versace mansion is an experience by itself. However, from the time we walked into the house everything was wonderful. The staff was friendly and... More

Me and my partner went there for dinner on Halloween. Stunning location and the service was great. HOWEVER, the food was so heavily seasoned that my partner's lobster & scallop starter was inedible. He awkwardly sent it back and asked for it not to be seasoned so heavily. Unfortunately it came back again and was just so salty to the... More

Always a great place to stop by for lunch. Great food. Friendly servers. I recommend you reserve beforehand due to limited seating.

Despite mixed reviews we decided to have a meal as a family on our last night in Miami at Il Sole. We entered with a sense of trepidation, but we needn't have done. All I can say is that this restaurant is a special experience. An extraordinary setting as befits the house of Versace - elegant, yet surprisingly understated, outstanding... More

So the mansion is out of this world!! Just being in there makes you feel like a king! Versace went all out and the history behind this house is incredible. From the gold in the pool to the unique statues this place is a palace!! However the food was poor, very salty and portions were not even appetizer size!! I... More
