Restaurant details

Description: Varuni Napoli is an authentic Neapolitan pizza restaurant from veteran maestro pizzaiolo Luca Varuni. A native of Naples, Italy, Varuni imports a large majority of his ingredients from his homeland so he can provide the most traditional cuisine to his adopted home of Atlanta, Ga. Those who walk through the doors immediately feel the same warmth and hospitality as they would in a neighborhood pizzeria in Naples.

This place is awesome for a casual but still nice dinner experience.
I dislike communal dining. But, they have enough tables and a bar area where you can get enough privacy to enjoy your meal, without having to be invaded by strangers in your space.
I've heard this place is owned by the same family as the frathouse experience known as Antico pizza...This place is SO much classier and adult, and pizza is definitely better here.
Love it and have been here multiple times...wouldn't go back to the Antico mess, where you have to stand to eat!
Tip: sit at the bar so you can have good service and avoid having to stand in line to order your food and then (hopefully) find a table.
Only way they could improve: Develop a full-service style place where you can be seated and order -- who wants to stand in line like a fast food restaurant, and then (sometimes) scramble to find a table to eat it?

If you like thin, crispy pizza, then this is the place for you. It is delicious. I met a friend, and we sat at the bar. We had a salad which was delicious and shared a pizza. Service was good and food was even better-will definitely go back.

Being allergic to Hazelnuts mean I've never had the pleasre of trying Nutella. But of course anything with chocolate I'm always drawn to. the fact that they have got tubs of it around here is amazing. I wish I'd run into this place when I first got here for this temporary work assignment but would have come much more often. I liked the off-beat and quirky fast-paced friendly vib of the place. Not to mention, it smells great when you walk in. In a way only open wood fired kitchens can be. The pizzas have nice crust and flavor all the way around. The antipasto plate was a nice suprise find on the menu. I like the fact that they try unusual combinations, so overall definitely a fun place to go from date night to boys (or gals) night out.

Being born and raised in Italy I guess qualifies me to judge what a good pizza should taste like. And yes, Varuni Napoli does deliver the kind of pizza I would expect to eat in Italy. Also yes, it costs more than it does in Italy which does not surprise me at all. With what life costs in Atlanta compared to a small town in Italy? I can't say 100% but if you went downtown Milan or Rome and tried to have a pizza in a similar neighborhood to where Varuni Napoli is located in Atlanta you'd be paying somewhat if not more than here. So, enjoy your pizza knowing it's as good as it comes.
