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

I worked in the Versace company for many years in Italy. To visit Casa Casuarina was a dream. The location is wonderful,as a restaurant client you can only visit the ground floor and the pool where the restaurant is located. Unfortunately, my dream has become a nightmare once seated at the table. this restaurant mocks the great Italian starred restaurants... 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

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 sparkling wine and took the drinks we ordered off... More
