Great lunch

I went for lunch here in January while on vacation and had a great experience. We got the shishito peppers, il sole burger, the club, iced tea, and the seasonal smoothie, all were very delicious. The staff were very friendly and made our experience very memorable, our waiter gave us complimentary... read more

This was without a doubt the best meal we had in Miami. Food and service was top quality but the most impressive part is of course the Mansion itself. We tried to call to book but had no success - i recommend you book using a website called opentable - you put in the number or guests and the date... More

Il Sole is located in the G Barton Hotel (the former Versace Mansion). It is right on Ocean Drive but you would never know it once you walk through the iron gate at the top of the stairs. Security are there to keep gawkers out of the hotel but are so patient with tourists who want pictures on the stairs... More

I took Mrs. Frequent Traveller out to dinner at Il Sole, and we had a wonderful time. She's a Versace fan, so the ability to look around inside the mansion was enough of an appeal to get her to say yes. And while I know some of the other reviews have been kind of meh, I found the evening enchanting.... More

We ate in the outdoor terrace by the pool and it was lovely. The food was very good, the service excellent and if only the walls could talk. Pricey Yes but a step back in time that was worth the trip.

Once the Miami residence of Gianni Versace, Il Sole restaurant is part of "The Villa" a boutique hotel with just 10 rooms that start (we are told) at $1500.00 per night and go north from there. We were seated in the small outdoor terrace set above a lush tropical inner courtyard that feels a world away from the hustle of... More

If your a table of 2, they won't pay attention to you. It took a half hour to just order drinks. The decor is incredible on the outside so ask for the outdoor seating!! The food was alright. You pay for the name, Versace. I would not return back. Cool experience be aware the food is not the best.

There are only a few ways mere mortals can check out the Versace mansion. Eat or stay there. By far the least expensive is eating and the the least expensive meal would be having lunch there. The problem that this presents is that you are overpaying for a very mediocre meal. It’s obvious that Dinner is THE meal while lunch... More
