We went on a date here while visiting Norfolk! Amazing food- pizza/crust was amazing!! Eggplant dish was also awesome. Good service- available, but didn’t hover. The music was also the right volume- nice complement to the clean and classy atmosphere.

This is a good local pizza chain. This spot is in Ghent and is popular. Their pizza is good, they also have spaghetti, lasagna and other typical Italian dishes. Salads are also tasty. For dessert they have a good selection of Gelato.

Ynot is only one mile from the church I work at. I often find myself dropping by to pick up a slice of pie or a salad. Food is fantastic, service is fast and friendly and prices are just right.
