    My family and I had a great time at Varasano’s Pizzeria. Not only was the pizza among the best that I’ve had in years, but the owner took the time entertain my son with Rubik’s cubes and his stories of being a record-holding cuber. It was a fun experience.

    I booked this spot for my child’s 1st birthday lunch. It has been on my list of places to try for some time. Given the type of food, I thought it was perfect for the occasion. We had a party of 16 people. As soon as we walked in, we saw several tables put together to accommodate our reservation. We were greeted and promptly seated and got drinks and appetizers convo started. Our waiter, Michael, was extraordinary. He handled our large party by himself with ease, like a professional. He recommended several dishes to us, and all of them were satisfactory. The price point was excellent, leading us to try almost everything the menu offered. We had: Garlic bites Italian bacon sampler (they serve brunch on the weekends) The house and Caesar salads +shrimp Calzones & pizza (they can interchanged into one or another): Ultimate calzone & Fontina mushroom pizza. We had each of these made to both calzone & pizza. Pasta: Farfalle, Penna Alla Vodka w/ chicken Italian donuts w/ raspberry sauce Cocktails Everything we ate was fantastic. We had lots of leftovers because the portions were hefty. But that is no complaint of mine. I certainly was left wanting more later. Any pictures you may have seen online (that look amazing) are not misleading you. We didn’t focus on taking pics of the food because of the occasion. But it was a lovely experience for a first-time visit and a 1st birthday. We surely will be back many more times. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, bar seats, and high-top tables. The space isn’t huge, but it wasn’t packed out, so it felt comfortable for us. I enjoyed the warm tone lighting that brightened the place despite our visit on a wet and cold day in January.

    As always, our pizza at Verasano’s was amazing. We’ve had almost every pizza they make. This visit we opted for the Margherita and the Chica Bella. Both pizzas were outstanding! There is something so special about the crust at Verasano’s, and the sauce on the Margherita. Blake was our server and he was wonderful. Almost forgot to mention we had the Italian Doughnuts with raspberry sauce for dessert. Mmm… so delicious.

    My wife and I each had a glass of wine and shared the house salad which was one of the best salads we have ever eaten. Then we shared a mushroom pizza which was superb, with it’s delicious fontina cheese and herbs. Had we not been flying home the next morning we would have gotten a pizza to take home. The food was wonderful and the prices were reasonable. The meal could not have been better!

    Hands down best pizza we had in Atlanta and the best, friendliest staff. The staff was so nice, let my kids watch them make pizza and even gave them some dough to feel like they were pizzaiolo. Will very soon come back.

    Sadly this place seems to be getting by bc of their take out orders. Dining in was not a good experience. Fortunately the bartender saw what was going on and took over taking care of our table but the food was not very good except for my salad. Disappointed bc it used to be one of my favorite pizza places.

    Pizza was delicious, super thin, made in a few minutes. Ordered 2 - 1 Nucci and 1 Mushroom, both excellent. We were a table of 3 and this was plenty with a few slices taken home. Good beer selection too. Host greeted us promptly and waitstaff were super friendly and helpful. Free parking also available on entry.
