Had dinner tonight at Varanos with my husband. Varanos food is always amazing, but their Valentines specials tonight were exceptional. We shared the seared tuna appetizer, so perfect and the crust on the tuna was so flavorful. Dessert was to die for, red velvet cake in a glass great for Valentine's Day! Already looking forward to our next meal here.

All the food was very good and as an Italian, I am very fussy. Specials were exceptionally good value.

My husband and I love Verano's. Have been going there since the night they opened, literally, March of 2000. Wonderful food and attentive staff. We are extremely disappointed though, as they have no handicap access into the dining room. Therefore we have not been there in over a year as my husband cannot do the stairs. Not complying with the... More

My wife and I had dinner one evening per a friend's recommendation. We both ordered Veal Parmesan. Our waitress was very pleasant and served our meal in a timely fashion. It was a huge portion of veal, so much that we each took half of this dinner home with us. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone. We will return on... More

The menu is very extensive, the food is not cheap, and the quality of the food is superb. The service was outstanding, the wine selection mostly Italian, and the ambiance was extremely pleasant. This is a place for a special night out, not a cheap quick meal. The place has both class, and first class food.

We always have the most delicious food at Varano's. My 2 favorite meals are the Seafood Stew and the Veal Parmesan.. Varano's wine is very tasty and the atmosphere is divine. The friendly efficient service warms you just as as much as their fireplace. We love Varano's

Great meal with a friend last nite, warm bread w olive oil and cheese, Caesar salad w anchovy, and veal Parm thin, crisp and delicious. My companion had the Eggplant Parm which was also excellently prepared, thin sliced eggplant crisp not soggy. I'll be back!
