Food and service were great
Jeff came to our table and offered to make special pizzas for us. We told him to surprise us and surprised we were! Just as good as any pizza I’ve had in Tuscany. Thanks Jeff and look forward to visiting again.
Pizza was excellent and the service was very good. Our waitress was very pleasant with a nice touch of southern charm. I would go back for the pizza and the company.
We really enjoyed Varasano's for Father's Day lunch. It had been a couple of year since my last visit but the food is still terrific. Highly recommend.
Service as iffy
Great pizza and the waiter was awesome!
There is NO BETTER pizza in Atlanta than Jeff's!
It's all about the crust.....I call it the BBC = bubbles, blister & char
Although service does vary it's far and away a better crust than any other.
We love the caramelized onion pizza on the menu and customize it by adding hot peppers and sausage.

This was not our normal visit to one of our favorite pizzerias. Ordered 5 pies , nana's, and received them one at a time for our party of 8. The kitchen is usually very consistent, but today each pie tasted different. Varying amounts of mozzarella, basil and char. Don't worry we will be back, but with less anticipation.
We always enjoy it!
Enjoyed our meal on the patio with our dog. and our waiter was great, too!
My favorite pizza in ATL! We go at least once a month, since we live on the south side of town...
We ordered two different pizzas and they were both disgusting. I ordered Bella Chica and the cheese was gooey and clumpy, the bread was literally heated dough and it had a soft consistency. It wasn’t baked at all!! You couldn’t hold the pizza for a second because it’d just fell apart. Overall wasn’t satisfied with the food and would not recommend it.
The pizza was just so-so. I enjoy s brick oven or quick cooking temperature pizza. While it was indeed baked quickly the very small amount of cheese and sauce were lame. Our server was delightful it was a very quiet Sunday afternoon on the day of our visit
Awesome service, awesome pizza, awesome mimosas - bottomless cocktails was great!
Meeting in Atlanta. Dinner for group. The service was very fast. Food was tasty and hot. This location could use a facelift, the furnishings were older.
The pizza has a lot of potential but the ambience was not quite what I expected, was younger and noisier than expected, service was ok.
Out standing service food was great price was not bad !!!!
Best pizza in Atlanta.
We hold it as the standard as best anywhere.
Adam and Andrew at the Bar rule. Always great food and service.
No pizza compares in Atlanta for the Neapolitan pizza experience!!
Had been looking forward to trying this neighborhood restaurant as I am new to the area but where to start. Menu thrown on table without a word. As I sat for 5 minutes without water, silverware or anything else, I saw a staff member - turned out to be my waiter - vaping at the station. Total turnoff. Then my waiter forgot my salad, forgot my wine, and when I told him he had overcharged me for wine, he said I was wrong. I wasn’t - made him check the menu. Oh and I still didn’t have silverware or a napkin when my salad and dinner arrived (together because he forgot my salad) and both before my wine. Absolutely not the experience I needed after a stressful day and when dining alone. Won’t be back and will discourage others from trying. FYI - I virtually never post negative reviews.
Great Neapolitan pizza. Crust was outstanding.
I've been to Varasano's several times and have never once been disappointed! The staff takes care of me and my friends whenever we go. Our waiter remembered my friend from a previous time she visited and remembered that she got married abroad and was just wonderful!
Excellent service and reasonably priced. AWESOME pizza.
Always delicious and terrific service!
Well done. Would be back.
Delicious pizza but there is no gluten free pizza option, only pasta.
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!
The pizza was phenomenal; better than we remembered! The staff is on point and the beer and wine list don’t disappoint.
Great spot for families, something to please everyone. The house salad is fantastic, and you can’t go wrong with any of the pizzas.
We were in a hurry and the server made sure we were served quickly and it was delicious-as always!
Varasanos is a great place with awesome food!
Great pizza. Amazing house salad. Fast, friendly service on a busy night This place is good for a date or for bringing the whole family.
Nice spot. The food & service was pretty good.
Celebrated my dad's 81st with the family. Great food and service!
Fantastic service and pizza! Favorite pizza in buckhead
Amazing experience - Jeff greeted us and actually helped make the pizza - best pizza I have ever had - great service Toni recommended the perfect wine to pair with our order
It was a wonderful experience. Got together with family that we had not seen for more years. Thank you!
Best pizza in Atlanta!! The pizza is authentic, with it’s thin crust and fresh ingredients. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!
