Experience the romance and Old World atmosphere of Varia on the second floor off the Main hotel. Our trattoria serves modern Italian fare made from local ingredients and over 100 hand-selected wines including 50 by the glass. The dining room’s intricate finishes and the warm glow of its reclaimed chandelier, formally of the Historic Cavalier’s ballroom, offers an intimate ambiance that invites conversation over a full bodied Merlot. Enjoy an upscale dining experience as you feel the warmth of the open kitchen and exposed pizza station. Then relax with a glass of wine in our piano bar. You’ll realize that Varia is not your average downtown Norfolk Italian restaurant. The dining area culminates in a large mill-work library with hidden doors in the bookshelves leading into an ultra-private room for special events and dinner parties.
