We chose this place because it was a nice sit down, in a quiet area, that offered gluten free pasta. The food was delicious and you got plenty of it. Kind of pricey but the amount of food and bread you received compensated for it....More

Nice decor, bread with oil and parm wasn’t good tasting. And poor tasing salads @ $5 each! Eggplant parm was good, chicken parm, so-so. Left about 3 cups pasta on both plates. Not a great overall experience either!

We have been going to Varanos for years. The most important is being consistent. The staff is very friendly and attentive. We enjoy the bar very pleased that they expanded to several chairs. Always enjoy our time at Varanos.

Varano's has become a staple for us. We found them years ago enjoying the special wine offerings (the selection has been pared back but there are still gems and any of the staff can make excellent selections in about any price range), we have found...More

This seemed like a good Italian place to eat as we passed through. It is Italian and it is good but very expensive for what you get. The quality of the food is 4 out of 5 stars but it seems to be the only...More

I would say yes if you go early. It is not primarily a 'family' restaurant but I believe that they will welcome a well behaved child.
