The five star, three story villa, is as opulent today as it was when Gianni Versace set out to transform a neighborhood and city over 20 years ago. Gianni and his renovated mansion forever changed the Miami Beach landscape from fledgling snowbirds to a fashion, music, and fine dining focal point of the world.
Gianni’s at The Villa opened the doors to one of the most photographed homes in the country. Guests are welcomed beyond the front gates to witness rich jewel tones, gilded wood and magnificent mosaics, a sight, which up until a few years ago was only available to a select few. Lunch and private occasions are attainable by appointment. In collaboration with Mathias Gervais, Executive Chef of The Restaurant at Setai, Executive Chef Thomas Stewart has conceptualized a modern Italian Mediterranean menu and will head the culinary team behind Gianni’s at The Villa.
