A beautiful place. Gianni Versace had an amazing home. The establishment is a joy to be at. The food is overpriced but good and tasty. The waitress got out order wrong in the drinks department but was polite at the end and adjusted out bill accordingly. If your wife wants you to take her here do it. I enjoyed it... More

My expectations were higher for the mansion than the food...but to my surprise the food was as amazing as the property. We started off the the grilled octupus appetizer and both ordered the bone in ny strip with truffle parmesan potato wedges. It all tasted amazing. In fact it was probably the slowest me and my wife has ever eaten.... More

This restaurant evening was genuinely a once in a lifetime experience. The 30 seat restaurant in the former home of Versace was simply surreal. The food was also excellent. To start, we were seated in the original dining room. The room walls were covered with tiny stones from Europe crafted into flamboyant designs. The floors were made of varied rare... More

Thank you all at The Villa for the best dinning experience ever. Me and my wife love all the attention, fantastic service and a great time. Like any other restaurant in the globe we understand that you have limited access to some areas but just been inside the Mansion is a great experience. Lots of beautiful pieces of art, lots... More

The Villa was recommended to us and when I looked at the reviews I thought that this would be an excellent intimate restaurant with just over 30 seated. First impression is less than stellar, the doorman was chasing off people while we stood and waited for the "rope" to be removed, in the end we walked around it. The initial... More

My wife and I enjoy fine dinning and have been to some of the finest restaurants in the world. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. We made reservations on Wednesday prior for Saturday, August 16th, 2014. When we arrived on the schedulled time with proper attire, they did not have record of our reservation. We sat at the bar...

We had dinner and drinks. The bartender made excellent drinks. Wine with dinner seemed a bit overpriced for the selection and the dinner was good(we sat inside). After dinner, we were encouraged to walk around and take pictures. It looked like the people seated outside,with the pool view, were kind of melted from the heat.

it is fun to see Versace´s over the top house which is largely unchanged since his time there. it is partly a hotel now i gather and for that apparent reason there is a strange mismatch between expecting to be taken care of and not feeling welcome. a case in point, we were sitting on the porch but not allowed...

My husband and I had dinner here on the 19th of July. When we called to make the reservations one week prior, we requested the pool terrace. When we got there, we were told we could not sit poolside because of a wedding. We don't know why we were not informed about the pool terrace not being available when we... More

Do yourself a favor and please avoid this place. I had a gut feeling this place is suspicious and I was correct.The villa is really splendid inside, especially in the pool area, and if paired with good food, it could be a fantastic experience. Unfortunately this place leaves you with a bad aftertaste. First, the bouncer and the host made... More
