I have this dish every time I visit Veranos. It is superb. And I live in LA and I've been enjoying this for decades.

The chefs are very talented. I feel like I'm in the north end, Boston. I wish they would renovate building.

Fettuccini Alfredo

Varano's is one of our favorite places for date night. My go-to meal is the Fettuccini Alfredo and it is delicious. We rarely skip the bruschetta too. So good! We love this local restaurant. It's such a gem.

Pasta With Sausage

We have been going to varanos for years. We have had just about everything on the menu and it's all excellent. Some of our favorites are chicken braccioletine, rigatoni bolganese, haddock, cioppiono, veal Marsala and ortevio. It's all wonderfully prepared. The service is always excellent.

Linguine with white clam sauce

This dish was absolutely delicious. The shrimp and scallops did not have an overpowering fishy taste as I have experienced when trying similar dishes at other restaurants, instead, they had a sweet fresh taste that blended perfectly with the Alfredo sauce, complimenting each other so that you could enjoy both flavors. There was so much food that I couldn't finish it all there. Even after reheating it at home it still tasted amazing. Along with this meal I had the blueberry lemonade, it was perfect. I have been to Varanos many times and have never been disappointed with a meal that I selected. The service, ambiance and cuisine make me come here everytime we visit Maine.

Gnocchi Saute

We went to Varano's fir Father's day, my husband had the special, it was eggplant, chicken and veal parmesan over pasta! I had Gnocci, both dishes were delicious!!! We have never been disappointed in the many meals we have eaten there. If you haven't tried it yet, it's a must! Great atmosphere, wonderful staff and extremely tasty food!! Prices are very reasonable too!!! ♥️🍝

Chicken Parmesan

No matter what you get at Varano's it does not disappoint. It's always nice to have a solid Italian restaurant in the mix of the coastal cuisine when you're vacationing. The Chix Parm is my ride or die after a long day at the beach, with a nice side salad. Always cooked to perfection, and I always have leftovers for a sandwich the next day. I'm in feeling a little health conscious I will get the gluten free pasta option. The staff and atmosphere are all friendly and well taken care of. In fact, one summer my father was unable to make the stairs from an ankle surgery and the manager at the time went above and beyond to open the front door to assist in getting my dad into the dining room so we could all enjoy a family dinner. We are forever grateful for that, and return a couple times ever summer - god willing!

Chicken Parmesan

The best chicken Parmesan around. We travel to York every month and never miss Saturday night at Verano's for this dinner and an antipasta salad !!!

Chicken Parmesan

The only chicken parm better than Varano's exists up in heaven with my mother and grandmother. When you go pair it with a Caesar salad. Wonderful food and no dishes, you couldn't beat that with a stick!

I grew up in Europe and frequently visited Italy. My favorite dish is Checken Piccata. Since I grew up on authentic Italian cuisine I am selective and know what it should taste like. I tried it at Veranos, and hands down it is as authentic as in Italy. The meat tender and flavorful, the sauce delicious with the right amount of flavors and consistency. I love that my server listens to my wish for heavy sauce. This is my dish every time I eat at the restaurant. Kudos to the chefs. Keep up the fantastic work.

Seafood Fettucini

My husband Mike and myself April were there this evening and got the rigatoni bolognese and the seafood fettuchini. We thought the dishes were delicious and would recommend them.

All I can say is wow. Thank you for such a unbelievable dinner. The wife and I came from Bridgewater Massachusett for a little getaway and living near Plymouth Massachusetts I grew up on seafood and we got so tired of going out to dinner and all they seemed to offer was seafood and that wasn't the case here. Driving down the road we saw your sign and glad we did. I got the lasagna which was big. And the wife had the chicken parmigiana which was even bigger. I would definitely give Varanos a 10. Food was amazing, prices were very reasonably priced. Definitely a must eat here if in the area

Grilled Salmon

The salmon was so delicious!! The glaze was perfect and the rice and vegetables complemented the dish nicely. Highly recommend!

OMG! This tender chicken cutlet dish was perfectly prepared - just the right amount of citrus and capers to give it the classic lemon piccata taste I was hoping for. Perfectly paired with angel hair pasta and finished with a roasted lemon slice! Delightful, delicious, delectable-would highly recommend!

Veal Parmesan

I have been to many restaurants that serve veal parmesan. No other place makes this dish as well as Varano's!! Their service, wine selections and food is outstanding!! This is my one and only favorite restaurant in Wells, Maine and there are many to pick from!!

Chicken Parmesan

We come to Wells every year for vacation and Varano's is an automatic stop for dinner. My wife Loves the NY Strip, my son Loves the spaghetti and meatballs, and I can't bring myself to try anything other than the Chicken Parm Dinner. Chicken is tender, marinara is delicious, and the portion size is ridiculous! Bring an appetite! Love, Love, Love Varano's!

The Chicken Orvieto at Varano's is one of my favorites. Tender chicken cutlets surrounded by mushrooms, artichokes and olives, floating in the most delicious lemon, wine and butter sauce. I always ask to have the pasta side replaced with their garlic mashed potatoes. I love to dip the potatoes in the sauce...yum! I am writing this review as I am enjoying my leftovers from last night.
