Our meals were delicious as was the Hidden Cove beer. We were disappointed when the waitress informed us that special orders were not allowed when ordering off the $15 specials menu. One person in our group ordered a side salad and requested no sauce on the chicken parm. The waitress said the chicken parm could not be ordered off the... More

Attended a dinner business meeting in their downstairs function room. One waitress who managed to take really good care of all of us!. I had the haddock with the lemon aioili sauce ( simply light and refreshing and did not obscure the flavor of the moist fish!) The green beans were crisp and hot and well-seasoned, but the potatoes were... More

They have a special for $15 for a main course right now to which we added a salad, wine and canoli for dessert. Great service and tasty food even if the servings were huge for me!

Had dinner tonight at Varanos with my husband. Varanos food is always amazing, but their Valentines specials tonight were exceptional. We shared the seared tuna appetizer, so perfect and the crust on the tuna was so flavorful. Dessert was to die for, red velvet cake in a glass great for Valentine's Day! Already looking forward to our next meal here.

All the food was very good and as an Italian, I am very fussy. Specials were exceptionally good value.

My husband and I love Verano's. Have been going there since the night they opened, literally, March of 2000. Wonderful food and attentive staff. We are extremely disappointed though, as they have no handicap access into the dining room. Therefore we have not been there in over a year as my husband cannot do the stairs. Not complying with the... More

My wife and I had dinner one evening per a friend's recommendation. We both ordered Veal Parmesan. Our waitress was very pleasant and served our meal in a timely fashion. It was a huge portion of veal, so much that we each took half of this dinner home with us. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone. We will return on... More
