Beautiful surroundings, excellent food (we recommend the porter house for two which comes with succulent broccoli and truffle steak fries, delicious. I would say that tje food is plentiful so glad we sisnt have a starter. Our waiter was... 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

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
