“Huge Selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The restaurant is situated on a small corner with barely enough parking, but the inside is larger than it looks. The waistaff is friendly and quick. The menu is huge and I can't imagine someone not finding something good to try, but the chopped salads are tops. You pick and choose what you want from a HUGE list, then they mix it all up with the dressing and chop it down. Perfection every time. The prices are a tad high compared to similar eateries, but worth it.

“Gone downhill...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I used to love YNot about four years ago. Now I can barely stomach their pizza. Everything tastes canned. The peppers are not fresh they are pickled. If you want an expensive vegetarian pizza the toppings come from a canned mix, and none can be omitted. ( I hate olives!)The worst is the sauce, it used to be really good and now it tastes like they changed it, like it's made from cans of Campbell's soup. If I am gonna pay a lot for pizza I would rather go to Primo. At least they use fresh ingredients. What happened to YNot? You used to be good.

“New York Italian in Virginia”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
