Atlanta Journal Constitution's Jenny Turknett reviewed Varuni Napoli and gave it 2 out of 5 stars. Noting that chef and co-owner Luca Varuni moved from Antico, she mentioned the comparison between the two. Turknett praised the communal and separate dining options as well as Luca Varuni's ability to create a sense of community to bring customers back. The pizza's lack of consistency makes it "good enough," but she is confident that customers will continue to return.
