    The Margherita pizza had a crispy, thin crust. Tomato sauce was average. The “bufala” was almost nonexistent. Average pizza overall from an Italian citizen.

    My husband just recently got out of a long hospital stay and we wanted something close to where we are staying. The reviews and menu looked good so we gave it a shot. We were so glad we went. Had the meatballs, which were incredible. You can taste the fresh tomatoes in the sauce. Also got a pizza which was incredible. My husband said it was one of the best he’s ever had. The owner Jeff came over to our table multiple times and the whole place was very laid back. We also had the Italian donuts with raspberry dipping sauce for dessert. You cannot go wrong to go to Varasano’s to eat.

    Pizza is perfected down to every flavor! This is a very authentic place. Don’t miss this hidden gem. The owner came to our table and was so passionate about his flavor concerns which truly personalized our experience and gave it a “boutique” feel. Cannot wait to go back.

    We always love going here. Learned a lot about the owner last night and liked it even more. What a great place to go, real Italian cooking for sure. Only complaint was the bar, but Jeff knows what the issue is and offered to fix it. Will definitely be going back.

    We were a party of 5 and each of us savored and devoured our individual 14" Neapolitan-style pizzas. At first, they look too big to be for one person but the true thin-crust pizza was exactly the right portion. None of us wanted to share! Our pizzas were so delicious and tailored to our tastes. We sat near at a table near the ovens and appreciated the owner/chef personally overseeing every single pizza that emerged from his 800-degree ovens. The restaurant is very casual, the parking is free (a rare thing in Buckhead), and there wasn't a crowd at 6:45 PM. the only downside was a lazy server but the owner compensated for him and was gracious in his hospitality. If you're going to Antico, Ammazza, Avondale or one of the other craft pizza places, give this one a try. Absolutely superior and our new choice for pizza in Atlanta.

    It’s such a treat to go to Varasano’s. The pizza is delicious and often times the chef will bring out special pizzas for us to try that aren’t even on the menu. The ingredients are extremely high quality and we live the super thin authentic crust. This is a must try!!

    Amazing pizza. I think the true test of a pizza place is how well do they do a plain cheese pizza, and it was truly exceptional here. The Meatball appetizer is really good, get the Margherita pizza as well. They also do brunch, which I was really shocked by.

    It was underwhelming. It was brunch and I made reservations but when I walked in, we were not greeted by a hostess. The waiter just asked us to take a seat anywhere we liked. The food was okay.

    After the glowing reviews on the internet, I was expecting more. I began to suspect things were not up to par when I walked in - the restaurant was nearly empty on a Saturday night. I did enjoy the garlic bites appetizer. For my pizza, I found the crust did have a nice flavor. But it was soggy instead of crisp. The flavor of the toppings left a bit to be desired also. We were in and out of the restaurant within 30 minutes, so the service was fast. Overall, I did not find the quality of the pizza worth the drive to the restaurant.

    Bottomless wine is totally worth it! It’s real cute and real chill! I recommend the mushroom pasta, the veggie pizza and if you like salty the olives and capers pizza is good. Service was great and glass was never dry. TRUE definition of bottomless! PULL UP! You won’t be disappointed.

    We dined here on a Saturday for a friendly get together. We were seated immediately but it took a bit of time for a server to take drink orders. Also, our server wasn’t rude, but wasn’t exactly welcoming either. In any case, our drinks good and food was great. Our friends loved the Nana with peppadews and sausage, I enjoyed the veggie pizza (no where else can I get broccolini on a pizza!) and my SO ate every bit of his calzone. The only thing we were a little disappointed in was the Caesar salad- pretty standard with seemingly store bought croutons. We rated this up there with several other of our favorite pizza places so will add it to our rotation in the future.
