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 was our first visit to Varanos but it definitely won’t be our last. From being seated to our wonderful waitress Emily it was a great experience. Great selection of beers and wine and the veal is top shelf. Can’t wait to go back.

We have enjoyed the food but the personnel was not the most friendly and welcoming. The manager (could be the ass-manager) was rude. I will not go back.

Great atmosphere to accompany some seriously good Italian food. The toasted bread for dipping in their own olive oil, parmesan & garlic is complimentary and a great appetiser. The menu is extensive and all food is well presented and very tasty. Great staff.

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.
