5 stars for the architecture and design plus being able to see where Gianni Versace once lived. 1 star for the staff; they are uneducated and need to google Gianni Versace to be able to tell their guests a little about the property! Good thing I brought my phone to do my own research while we waited for our dinner.... More

If you visit Sobe and your an Art lover you must see the Versace mansion. The mosaic tiles are breath taking. There is outdoor seating by the pool. We ordered the pasta dish and it was very good ,along with the salad. I did not care for the red snapper.It was small and bland. My friend and I split all... More

This is a unique experience that is worth while. Il Sole is in Gianni Versace home, formerly called casa Casuarina. When you arrive, there is valet parking almost in front of the house and it have a handicap ramp on the side to get in the house. You must have reservations to get in. Once inside, the place is a...

Was a great experience to eat in luxurious setting. We were allowed to walk around down stairs afterwards and the staff took pictures for us. Do not agree with reviews saying not good service. The service is of a quality you get in fine dining restaurants in the UK. It is not over the top American service, go to hooters... More

I am a Miami Beach native - I live here and I like to explore the new restaurants and hot spots that pop up around town. A dear friend and I, on a monthly basis, check out what's new and we usually shy away from the touristy spots. This time, though, we checked out Il Sole at the Versace mansion... More

While I'm in love with the fact that the mansion is now open to the public upon reservation in a little bit disappointed in the fact that I only got a reservation to have a drink considering the limited menu for dinner. Also very disappointed in how the staff is on you like white on rice and you must stay... More

The opportunity of dining at Gianni Versace's iconic mansion - formerly known as "Casa Casuarina" - in Miami Beach sounded very attractive and we went on! Booking made and there we were! The actual restaurant - "Il Sole" - is part of the mega exclusive hotel "The Villa by Barton G.", which has recently opened its doors on sunny Ocean... More

The employees, bartenders, waiters were so rude, they really think they are better than you. They need to understand not because they work for this beautiful property, does not mean that they own it!! Dinner was average so as the wine list. I wasn't impressed at all. They seated us outside, it was very humid and made the experience unpleasant.... More
