I was not greeted when I arrived. A young lady looked at me a couple times and never spoke. I stood by the register and waited. After a couple minutes she came to the register, looked at me as if I was a bother then abruptly asked if

The food here is soooo good. I've only been a few times, but the service was excellent and it was clean and a friendly atmosphere. I plan to go back soon. Even my picky child loved it.

Every item on the menu is made from the freshest ingredients! The staff is friendly and professional and the ambiance is comfortable. For me, it was love at first bruschetta! The entire restaurant smells delicious and dinner tastes even better. Also, the pepperonis are as cute as buttons. Sitting on the patio on a breezy, summer evening with hot, delicious food is something you'll only find at Verra-Zanno. It's the only one of its kind.

Pros: food, location (by the hospital for emergencies), patio

Cons: no secret passageways

I always get The Classic, which is basically a hot ham and cheese sub. The bread is crispy on the outside and just right on the inside. The temperature is always just right also. My daughter, who is 6, loves this place. She usually gets the pasta and devours every bit of it. We have never tried the pizza here but it looks really good. I am addicted to the subs but will eventually get around to the pizza. The portions are huge and the prices are reasonable. Nice atmosphere and everyone is always so friendly. Would recommend this place to anyone!

Pros: Food, atmosphere, friendliness of staff

Cons: Can't think of any!

Something for everyone! The pizza is easily the best in town --- great crust, the right sauce and plenty of ingredients. Joe does it right even by the slice (never chewy, dry or overcooked). Most salads at pizza places are afterthoughts -- a bed of lettuce and a couple of veggies tossed in for good measure. But not here -- the antipasto and greek salad especially are enormous and fresh. Entrees and subs are not the focus here, but are also excellent. And to top it off, Joe and his staff keep the place spotless and well-run -- and family friendly.

Special recommendation: try the Grilled Chicken Salad for lunch -- it's almost better than the pizza!

I moved to the South 20 years ago. There was no good pizza (you know the delicious cheese, authentic oils, hand tossed, brick oven). Then I had Big Daddy's - and I was back home in Brooklyn (where I could walk to 6 different pizzerias in less than 10 minutes). When Big Daddy's moved to John's Creek and became Verra-Zanno's I had flashbacks to high school track workouts (run to the Verrazano Bridge and back). This is the best pizza around...fuggetaboutit !

Top ten reasons my husband and I favor this restaurant above all others:
10. Every stromboli tastes as good as the last, and the serving size so big that you won't need dinner later.
9. The chicken chunks on the chicken salad are spiced just right every time.
8. The garlic knots come out of the oven piping hot and dripping with butter. We eat ours with olive oil.
7. The pepperoni slices taste better to me than pepperoni from any other restaurant. Is it just me??
6. The coke does not have extra water added, so it is strong and flavorful.
5. The calzones are too big to finish, but you will die trying because they are stuffed with high quality, mouth-watering cheeses.
4. The Italian sub is delectable and overflowing with Boar's Head meats.
3. Have you ever tried a canoli? I had my first at VZ, and I am now officially addicted.
2. The atmosphere at this restaurant inspires one to relax, smile, and breathe. The decor is subtle and pleasing, the lighting is adequate but romantic, and the ambience is classy. The tables are large enough to accomodate a large pizza AND your plates, drinks, etc. The bar is the best seat in the house for socializing with the staff (especially Elise) and watching the chefs work their magic (especially Julio).
1. The owner, Joe, is always there. He is like a shepherd watching over his flock, overseeing both the dining room and the kitchen whilst exchanging stories and greetings with customers all night long. He cares for your dining experience and his concern reveals itself in that no detail has been overlooked or under attended. He is genuine, approachable, and reasonable, and because he is a true New Yorker, very interesting to chat with.

In summary, if you haven't tried this restaurant, you are doing a disservice to yourself. If you have tried it, you have most likely become a regular!

Coming from Europe some 30 years ago and being a pizza lover, I searched for a long time for that "perfect pie" without much success; once in a while my hope would ride high just to be disappointed at a next visit. Seven years ago I discovered Big Daddy's, a pizzeria run by Joe Amitrano like a precision watch. Over and again his pies would be perfect; great sauces, fresh ingredients, in great combinations and large sizes. And his dough tested just incredible! He moved to John's Creek under the Verra-Zanno's name. Consistent great taste, attention to detail in the food as well as in the service in a great atmosphere, that's what you should expect. Look no further than Verra-Zanno's.

Pros: Terriffic sauces; great pies; fresh ingredients - try sausage in your pizza

Cons: Sometimes it's hard to get a table although the bar has some excellent seating

I love this place. Eat in or take out - it is always fresh, friendly, fast and delicious. I would go much more often if it was a little closer to home (Duluth). I love the spagetti, my friends love the pizza and we all love the fresh salads, homemade italian dressing and hot garlic pizza "knots". It is the best little Italian family style restaurant in all of John's Creek and Duluth put together. Delicio! Think I'll go tonight.........

The food here is great. The sicilian pizza and stromboli are very good. I haven't tried anything there that I do not like. It's difficult to try the chain pizzas after having Verra-Zanno's.
The staff is friendly and Joe is great.
If you come for lunch, get there early. It fills up quickly!

Ate at verrazano for the first time last week. The food was great. I first read about them at the atlantacuisine(dot)com website. They know how to get it done. I expect to see them at #1 on the best of list.

I've been going there since it opened. And before when Joe had Big Daddy's Pizza.
His menu is excellent. The food is top shelf because you can tell he doesn't scrimp on the ingredients. True NY style subs and pizza.
Great staff, always friendly.

I was very impressed! Growing up in the food service, I am very particular about the resturants my Husband and I try. So when we heard from many friends about this place, we decided to come try it. We love it! Great place to bring the family or just stop in and relax to the old Italian music and the outgoing employees. I am now considered a regular, coming in for carryout at least three times a week, the servers are sweethearts and the owner is always friendly!

Pros: Amazing calzones, The pizza is made right in front of you with the highest quality ingredients!

Cons: It gets busy!! come in earlier on Friday nights

.

Best pizza anywhere! Great customer service. On a regular night pizza only takes 10 minutes!! When you stop in try the bruschetta, It's one of my favorites. I moved down here from Manhatten seven months ago and finally found pizza just like home. You can come in have a beer and a slice at the bar waiting for take out.
When you come in to this small family owned resturant, tell them Joey sent ya!

Pros: The food is amazing, You get better pasta dishes then downtown, for haf the price.

Cons: They only serve Lasagna on Tuesdays, so you'll have to come in during the week to try it!

.

Excellent NY style pizza. Very similar in taste & style to Fellini's pizza but much shorter drive for the Johns Creek residents. Prices are great and the service is good. Be sure to try the garlic knots, there is enough butter to plug your arteries but they sure are good.

For those of you not in the know, this is the former Big Daddy's Pizza that was located on Peachtree Industrial Blvd in Duluth that closed. The owner is still found behind the counter in this MUCH larger space fixing the pies himself! Still same great pizzas, calzones, strombolis, garlic knots, heros and salads, but now he has added some entrees and other new choices. Tables fill quickly so unless you want to wait, go a bit early.
