I adore this restaurant. Beautiful atmosphere and impeccable service. I enjoyed my cobb salad with organic chicken and farm fresh eggs. Great wine list as well. Just beware... bottled water is $12.

The Versace mansion is beautiful but the perks come to a raging stop right there. The food, although not inedible, was maybe on par with your favorite fast food restaurant on an average day. There is a dress code, which is silly considering the quality of the food. My plate was cold and my companion had a fishy taste in... More

Great experience. Dined by the pool, very good service, great food, nice wine selection. Priced to match, but worth the experience.

Would really recommend, we ignored some of the negative feedback as I really wanted to visit this place! Staff were very friendly, professional and gave us above and beyond service. The food was delicious very Mediterranean, a great time !

The Venue is Stunning and a Must for Versace Fans like myself, However the Whole set up is really all a bit of a Shambles. Entry is similar to a Prison Visit- You report to Front of House and are made to wait until they see fit to allow you in - Once Inside they restrict your Movements too. In... More

This isn't an inexpensive lunch but it is well worth it! My wife had a nice anchovy salad and a had a perfect burger. Lunch menu is limited but it all looked outstanding. We were seated in the formal dining room but if possible request a table overlooking the pool!

We had dinner their beginning January for the first and definitely also for the last time, that is for sure... First of all, when we arrived at 8.00 pm, our table was not ready, so we were asked to wait in the patio, which has, it is true, a fantastic decor... Nevertheless, they should have offered us a drink and... More

My last impression of II Sole is the first I would like to impart: We are in the former Versace Mansion and therefore we will treat you Monty-Python Satirical level of snobbery! I called to make reservations and was informed there was a dress code by a man with what seemed a heavy French accent. Which is totally cool, I... More

This was the real Villa where Gianni Versace used to live his death. The locations is just fabulous either if you decide to eat inside in the beautiful golden mosaic dining room, or if you decide to eat on the patio overlooking is unique decorated pool. The personnel is awesome and the food was phenomenal as well as the service... More

a truly magical venue, from the moment you enter to the time you leave, BUT, we didn't go for the ambiance. the food offering seemed interesting and with the barton g reputation, we expected much more. we ordered the porterhouse for 2 @ $110 which was not completely out of line for miami. however, it arrived cold. service was adequate,...
