“New York Italian in Virginia”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Two brothers from New Jersey own four Y-not restaurants i2 in Va Beach, one in Chesapeake, and one in Norfolk's upscale Ghent. These Jersey men certainly know Italian food. The menus has a large variety of selection other than pizza. Pasta dishes that you can choose your own sauce and pasta. Hot and cold subs, and a Gluten free pizza option. A unique and very popular and delicious item on the menus is their chopped salad. Pick your own green and a huge assortment of ingredients, then it comes finely chopped no knife needed. You get a bite of all the flavors at once - wonderful !
Portion sizes are more than I can ever eat. It is a family restaurant, and a family run restaurant , many of the servers are sisters, or cousins, and it is a generally nice atmosphere.
On Friday and Saturday nights there is usually a 20 min wait, but it is definitely worth it !

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I had visited this restaurant with my daughter over a year ago and we loved it. I recently went back with my husband and it was as if it was a different restaurant entirely. We felt rushed by the server to make up our minds so we ended up choosing one of the create-your-own pasta dishes. That was an expensive choice. One of the toppings I chose was shrimp at a cost of $4.50. I received four shrimp in my entree. Pretty overpriced in my opinion. I think we chose the wrong time to try to have dinner because the overall atomosphere was very loud. Lots of families with kids. This restaurant is probably a terrific, fun place for families. Not so much for two older folks.

It's been a long time since I've come close to raving about a pizza...this place rates among the best pizza I've tasted in years! There's something first quality about their cheese's and sauce...not to mention dough...that bring about a fabulous pizza! Two thumbs up for Y Not.

“Great pasta and more!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Unique menu got to choose type of pasta, type of sauce and type of topping on pasta... like customized menu. I got Gnocchi with pesto sauce topped with brosciutto enough for two people for $15... wow what a deal and it was awesome - just like the northend of Boston, MA. Can not say enough about our waitress Kelly who explained how the menu works, dinner specials and even escorted me over to the counter where the Italian Cookies were... not cheap immitation Italian cookies like at the grocery store (you can't fool me).

“Hidden Gem Alert.”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Love italian food, traveling with a great italian cook and we both thought the food was awesome, the service remarkable and the outdoor dining (during a powerful thunder storm) fantastic. Just happened upon this restaurant driving around looking for one without a long wait. My question now is why didn't this reaturant have a long wait - it was better food and service than some of the ones we had eaten in that did. The bakery part of the restaurant was outstanding as well... try it all... we did!
