Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A small deli/convenience market they are located in a residential neighborhood. On a Sunday, I visited Varsi for the Italian chicken hoagie-as featured on “best thing I ever ate.” Unfortunately, they were out of the Chicken cutlets. The nice lady mentioned weekdays are better as...they usually sellout or have big orders weekends. So I ordered The Godfather with hoagie ( the way to go) bread. Filled with Prosciutto, Soppressata, Capi (sliced to order) fresh mozzarella cheese & roasted peppers, it was very good. Lessened the miss on the Cutlet sandwich. Definitely a locals spot and small & charming deli. Will be back next time I’m in NYC (but will call ahead to confirm the Chicken cutlet status)More

My first time there...the rice balls are by far the BEST I've ever had. Potato croquettes, too. I will be going back to try EVERYTHING! Great fried eggplant (my mom's favorite) and chicken cutlet. I love that they did not load on the salt...means the...food is FRESH!More

I've been going to Varsi's Deli for years. The cold cuts are always fresh as they do a booming business. They also make the best Italian sweet sausage, sauce and ravioli. They have an extensive assortment of cheeses including a fresh homemade mozzarella. Staff is...friendly and helpful too.More

My family and I visit here often for cold cuts and also for Varsi's homemade sausage, thin cut and thick cut. By far the sausage in the neighborhood. Everything is freshly made from the pasta, to the sauces, to the sandwiches, to the sausages. Everything...thing you want in your neighborhood Italian deli. Go by and say hello to Mario and Sal.More

I recently had a Italian Chicken Cutlet Sandwich which has proscsuitto, mozzarella, roasted peppers and lots of chicken. To say is was delicious is an understatement. I could not finish it because it was YUGE [sic]. Reasonably priced. My friend ordered the same thing and...he could not finish his. BTW, we are both big eaters.More

This establishment is strictly take-out but the staff is wonderful, the food very fresh, and their fresh pasta is delicious. I, especially, love their meat tortellini and their homemade mozzarella/bocconcini. Been going there for years!
