Varasano's Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: "Master of the Rubik’s Cube" was Jeff Varasano’s first claim to fame. At 14, he set a record (24.67 seconds) for solving the mind-bending puzzle. Bronx-born, he moved to Atlanta in 1998, and soon became hungry for pizza as he knew it. So he experimented, traveled, experimented some more, and opened Varasano’s Pizzeria. While there are salads and pastas (including gluten-free corn pasta options), the reason to come here is pizza. The super-thin crust makes folding the slice to eat it extra easy and adds markedly to the experience. Varasano recommends not overloading the thin crust with too many toppings, and we heartily concur. Quality ingredients such as mozzarella di bufala and aged balsamic figure prominently in the pies, which are large enough for two. Our favorite is the salumi, with sliced cured meats. Desserts range through the Italian classics and include a pizza with honey, dates, Fontina and walnuts. The wine list has decent choices by the glass, but an Italian rosato would be smashing with these pies. Beers offered are paired with suggested pizzas, a nice touch. Also located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Concourse A.
