Great meal, steep prices. Cozy atmosphere, good staff and good food. Looks fancy but it is a very family friendly restaurant. Hard to find good Italian in an area that specialize in Seafood, but they do it well. Worth every penny spent!

If you like a good meal, in a comfortable and pleasant setting, Varano's is the place for you. The food is incredible and the service even better. We've never been disappointed and I highly recommend. Come casual or dressed up, the choice is yours. For a fine Italian meal, north of Boston, you cannot do any better than here!

Had a great meal at Varano's. I have always search for the best chicken parm and I found it here. It is the best I have ever had. My wife got the eggplant parm and loved it also! Our server Tracy was attentive and friendly. Whenever we travel to Maine, this is our number one stop!!

Dinner at Varano's has been a family tradition for many years. They have a comfortable atmosphere, very friendly staff, and most important of all - amazing meals every time we have dined there. Their extensive wine list, artisan appetizers, generous entree portions, and decadent desserts are second to none. We have special family meals there 6-8 times per year and... More

The Veal Orvieto is my favorite! I just tried the haddock with the parmesan tonight and this meal might become my number one. All staff are excellent...We live locally and always have a great experience at Varano's!

Although I have tried many other delicious items on their menu - the Chicken Orvieto is the bomb.com. Wonderful food. Wonderful people.

We ate here three times during our visit to Wells. All three meals were made to order. It did not matter what pasta we ordered, it was well cooked, seasoned just right. I had the meat balls once. You should be hungry to order spagetti and meat balls. We had two different servers and both were well versed in the... More

Went here in the off season as we live here. Wife and I both ordered the lasagna, both servings were ice cold in the center and we sent them back. Wont go again.
