Tonight was first time we tried Varano's. But it will not be the last! The service was wonderful. Our waitress was personable and very good. The food was excellent. It was cooked to perfection.

We stay very close to Varano's when staying in Wells and have been there many times. I ordered take-out the other night so we could just relax and enjoy the view of the marsh. The Rigatoni Bolognese was the BEST I have ever had.

The best Veal Parm I've had. Plenty of food but a little on the higher end of the price range. But well worth it.

We had been several years ago and went back. The food is still great...lots of garlic. We enjoyed the sauce on the fish special. The wine was great. Our server was accommodating. The only thin I would change is maybe some updating in the decor.

Still trying to find the handicapped entrance. This website says the restaurant is"wheelchair accessible". Where? If not, they are in violation of the federal ADA and should be reported.
