We discovered Varanos three years ago and its become a favorite! Every year we go to Ogunquit with friends for her birthday! Looking for an Italian restaurant in the area to take her to we found Varanos and gave it a try! We were pleasantly surprised. Loved it here! We have returned everytime we are in the area.

We travel up to the area several times a year and love taking advantage of the special coupons that have been offered for the Mile Reward Members,,,such... More

We have become regulars. The food is always excellent. Very large portions at good prices. Chicken Parmesan is good for two meals. They are very accommodating and will do anything to please you. Our favorite waitress is Trixie....she is awesome.

Tried Varano's after a recommendation from our hotel staff. Thought it was a bit pricey at first, but this was made up for with the very large dinner portion. I tried the chicken parm and had enough for a full meal the next day as well. The bread and oil starter were very good as well. The staff we interacted... More

My husband and I dined at Varano's last week while on vacation. It was by far the best meal we had all week. Mary, our server, was friendly and extremely attentive, and everything from the warm bread to dessert was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is very pleasant, everyone was friendly, and I'll go as far as to say this is... More

Reasonable rates, nice atmosphere, polite fast service, great veal parm! Went early on a Friday night, around 6pm, and by the time we left it was packed.

We had dinner at Varano's a couple of weeks ago after being away for a long time. There was no wait, we got a good table by the window, service was great and food was 3/4 good. Excellent Caesar Salads and great Chicken Marsala. Frutti di Mare was described by our server as spicy. She could have described it as... More

During a recent weekend stay and based upon recommendations from this site and some local people, we tried Varano's on a Saturday evening. Arrived at about 7PM, and there was a half hour wait as they don't take reservations. We relaxed in the downstairs bar area, and the bartender Charlie was a hoot and made everyone feel special. About twenty... More
