Wanted to try this location because we love the Krog St Market location. Was very disappointed with the service. First off, we were told we cannot have a side of marinara sauce because the kitchen was closed (at 8:54pm) and they won’t be making more...marinara sauce until the next day. A few moments later, another individual asked for marinara and received a large side dish of marinara immediately. In addition, we finished our meal around 9:20 pm and had beverages to finish before leaving the restaurant. We asked for boxes and shortly after were asked to leave by the manager because the employees were cleaning the restaurant (again 9:20pm). As a paying customer, I am deeply disappointed. Was very excited to try this location but won’t returning.More

They have a take-out window outside, making it very convenient in the current pandemic situation. Pizzas are good, particularly the white pizzas. Salads are excellent, with enough to share.

My Wife and I have been here many times and have brought our entire family in the past. We tried it again on 8/9/2020 around 12:30 PM, Covid19 might be around but they are well on board with protecting you and themselves, so go and...enjoy. I thought at first that they weren't open because when I looked for their website on Trip Advisor I ended up with a blank page, so you should go directly to their website for an update on hours etc. Our food experience: First off remember this is not a cheap pizza joint this is a first class place with very high quality food prepared in an authentic Italian style. There is a difference and you can truly taste it. So if you are reading some of the reviews that I have seen, take this statement to heart. This time we had the Margherita and added mushrooms and hot Italian peppers. The pizza is thin and was done to perfection, just like I would expect from and authentic Italian pizza place. In Italy you would either use a knife and fork or fold the end over to the edge and eat it. We also had a serving of Eggplant Parmesan, the eggplant was sliced thin, the cheese was just right and the sauce can not be beat. This dish takes a little bit longer to get because it is freshly made, worth the wait though. We also had the Arugula Salad with fresh cheese slices, the first bite is a little bitter but that is just the Arugula, you will acquire a taste for it very quickly and enjoy. All of the staff checked on us including the owner and chef Luca Varuni. They really want you to have a good experience. I last reviewed Varuni Napolia in 2015 and have been enjoying every since then.More

This guys make a decent pizza, and they import all there ingredients from Italy. But, let be honest, flour, water and yeast don't cost that much money. Even Italian tomatoes which can be pricer doesn't mean that you pizza is worth $25 - $28 dollars....Mellow Mushroom is pricey too, but this is at a new level of expensive for pizza.More

I feel certain that they must be selling something better thanI ordered. I preferred a small pizza and salad. The salad was just okay and the pizza was inedible. Not a place to get a pizza. I will beg forgiveness to Mellow Mushroom on LaVista...Road....the best pizza in Atlanta..but there is something special about LAVista Rd Mellow mushroom!!!!!More

We were impressed by the prompt service and the excellent pizza. I had the Bastardo. We also had a nice bottle of red wine but I've forgotten the name of it. The only downside of this restaurant is it's a little pricey, but there is...free parking.More

Nice place, comfortable, good choice, ok pizza, worth a trip (back). Went for the first time. Interesting layout, quite comfortable. Order at the front, not table service (kind,of) with fresh made pizza, place. Amazing ovens BTW. Good wine, had the Montepulchiano, (forgive the spelling), great...wine for $32 a bottle. Pizza, fresh made, I think ours was a little undercooked (talked to “the front”, but not listening), but still OK. Veggie, make your own was great. Good arancini appetizer. They offered a great taster, pasta, sausage, that was great, hope they keep it. All in all good. Yes, I’d go back. Hoping the pizza is cooked a few minutes longer next time.More

The “feel” of the restaurant is that you are an imposition! Admittedly, I am not a pizza expert, but I have been to Italy!! This is no where in that class! I was appalled watching families being squeezed into smaller tables. The lack of service...is inherent in the almost cafeteria style pizza. This may be okay if you want a take out, but there are truly too many chains that serve a delicious pizza to settle for what we experienced!!! The pizza crust was goey indicating it had not been cooked enough! Once was enough!!!More

I think Varuni’s has the best pizza in Atlanta. No doubt about it. Parking is in the back and I have not had a problem doing so on any visit. Prices are fair and you order at the counter and pay before they bring it...to you. It is seat yourself. Try this place if you love great pizza!More

No dogs, and beware of having to order alcoholic drinks separately at the Uber busy bar. Forget the idea of pizza and beer, ain’t happenin on a Friday or Saturday night.
