The absolutely best pizza on the planet. I've eaten pizza in NY, Chicago, Italy and none compares to Varasano's.

INCREDIBLE PIZZA! Discovered at Atl Airport Terminal A.
Story behind Jeff's research into what makes for great pizza is great reading!
I'm a NY'er… 60 years. Claims of "NY style pizza" everywhere are basically false claims... except for Varasano's. Certainly best pizza in Atlanta. Holds it's own against Joes/Johns/Patsy's/Roberta's and others in NYC!

Best pizza in Atlanta hands down!!!!
You can build anything on a Búfala d’ Mozzarella Margarita. The best ingredients ever.
We sit in the Bar area and always get great service from Adam and Andrew.
Don’t bother anywhere else!

This wonderful restaurant always pleases us. That particular night--the Sunday after Thanksgiving--we received personal service from the owner Jeff who brought homemade dessert treats that my Italian husband remembered from childhood.

Their oven is dirty. All the pizzas were black. 🙄 we ordered garlic bites, which was basically a slice of bread cut in 12 pieces. Their salad options are limited. The chicken in the pasta is flavorless. It was microwaved or boiled and that’s it. It didn’t have color or flavor. The pizza is made out of like yeast or something. It was very strange. The service was great, but the food wasn’t. Sorry. My calzone wasn’t cooked inside. It just looked like a bunch of microwaved food... it didn’t look tasty or fresh at all.

The restaurant was backed up due to a rush of take-out orders, but the Server, without being asked, comped a number of apps and deserts and was very apologetic. Superlative customer service.

Great pizza. We start with meatballs, then move onto a chica bella (arugula and ricotta, with lemon drizzle--amazing!), then end with the classic margherita. The crust is thin and delicious. One of the best pizza places in Atlanta
