Grilled 12oz New York Strip Steak with Gorgonzola Butter

I enjoyed a well cooked New York strip from Varano's a few weeks ago. I was just what I asked for and the owner ever went above and beyond to hand make some special steak sauce - thank you very much!

Chicken Parmesan

One of the best plates of chicken Parmesan that I've ever had! Also would highly recommend their calamari! I highly recommend going here and will definitely be back!!

The MOST flavorful lasagna I've ever had. The noodles were perfectly cooked, and the sauce was exquisite. Our appetizers were amazing, and the sides were delicious. This restaurant is our "go to" for Italian meals. My husband and son's meals were "probably the best Italian I've ever had. Sorry Mom." That's saying a lot!

Seafood Fettucini

OMG! Everything about Varano's dining is exquisitely on point. the starter plate of Olive Oil specially imported from Italy with fresh grated parm cheese and bread peaks your appetite. The entree of Fettuccini Alfredo with seafood is the best I have ever had. Silken buttery, creamy cheese sauce. Delicate flavor so seafood flavor is not over powered. We have eaten at Varano's many many times trying each and every dish, wine and dessert. If we lived closer we would dine in or have take out every night. Varano's, a Ristorante is Italy situated in Maine! please come open a second Ristorante in Newport Maine!

Chicken Parmigiana

This restaurant not only has wonderful food, but their customer service is absolutely unsurpassed. Last evening, my husband hosted a lovely birthday party for me, having ordered dinner for 14 from Varanos in Wells - or so he thought. When he arrived at the restaurant to pick up three trays of food, it was soon realized that he had inadvertently ordered from a Varanos restaurant in TEXAS! My husband of course was in a state of panic but the manager immediately stepped up and had dinner made for him within a half hour! Varanos truly saved the day….. and the food was fabulous!! Please patronize this iconic Wells, Maine restaurant. They truly will go above and beyond.

Chicken Parmesan

We had Emily C and she was excellent. The food was excellent as always. So nice to see things finally getting back to normal. If you leave hungry it's your own fault because the portions are very generous.
