    We all have celiac and we very happy to find some pasta options at the beach. We had very basic pasta with marinara and pasta with butter..... with GF rolls. All tasted good and no one had a reaction. We will be back!

    Food was pretty good. Service was terrible and disorganized and unprofessional which makes for a lack of confidence in ability to keep GF items separate. Knock on wood, my son and I were fine after eating our pizza and pasta dishes.

    This place is MAGIC!! They have a dedicated menu, almost everything can be made gluten free. I had the gluten free tomato bruschetta and I almost cried because it was so good. I had gf pasta with Daiya Vegan cheese and my stomach is very happy. Perfect place to carb-load before a race!! Nate at the bar was very knowledgeable and made sure my food was A-ok

    GF options were plentiful. Food was great. Wine was a generous pour, but not so great.

    We visited here 3 times during our weekend trip, and the food was delicious every time. My 9 year old with celiac had no issues and had a blast building her "make your own" sub on gluten free rolls. Friendly and helpful staff as well. We would definitely plan to come back!

    Y Not? Well, I will tell you why not. We went to this restaurant after reading the reviews on Find Me Gluten Free. Our experience was dreadful. First, the gluten free pizza here is NOT safe for celiacs. It is prepared next to the regular pizza. Even if they wipe the counters (which we did not observe) the spin and flip the regular pizza door and flour flies into all the toppings. The same toppings are used for both the regular and gluten free pizzas. Based on these observations, I did not eat the pizza. Second, I ordered a salad - the create your own. Half of the toppings I ordered were not on my salad and they brought my gluten free salad out with pita bread on top of it. The mozzarella caprese was served with bread on the plate. The pesto pasta we ordered was awful. The pasta was not good at all. Not to mention that there were children playing with pizza dough throughout the place and there was dough on the sink handles in the bathroom. The pizza maker carried flour right by our table - and he himself was covered in flour. Finally, My husband's salad had a fly in it. A live fly - covered in salad dressing. I would NOT recommend this restaurant to celiacs or anyone else for that matter.

    Just want to make sure no one takes the last review to heart. I eat at ynot every time I come to Virginia Beach and I've never had a problem, they are very careful.

    This is not celiac friendly. When you walk in you feel safe because they have separate cookies, menu and the server we'll shake his head yes to all questions of how things are prepared, however it takes a great amount of gluten for me to get really sick and I got violently sick.

    They had wonderful GF Pizza, I was so thrilled.The service was great. They thought they had cooked my pizza too long, even though I thought it was fine, so they made another one for me at no charge!

    Love this place and try to stop in when I'm in VA. The pizza and pasta are outstanding and the staff knows a lot about GF options. I only wish I had one of these restaurants in my town! Very good Italian food.

    They do offer gf food, however the menu is super confusing because it is grouped with vegan and the items are not labeled very well. Thanks to my waitress that helped and asked the kitchen multiple times. We did order 2 gf appetizers and were pleased with both, however when my philly steak sub arrived it was inedible, and very costly ($20) The kitchen originally made it on the wrong bread-- scary!! I am a celiac & I experienced a reaction after eating here. :(

    A++ ! Staff very knowledgable they assured me that everything gluten free is made separate. They even have a separate pizza box that says gluten free on it! Got a plain pizza and had no reaction! Only in VB a few days but def will be going back to this place before I leave!

    Food was excellent; I had the gf ravioli and my celiac son had the gf pizza with cheese and bacon. We could see the pizza chef as he. changed gloves and pulled out a premade crust and put it on a pan. they make their own crust. it was, however, cooked In the same oven as other pizza. he had no issues with his meal. not sure if they make their own ravioli but it was delicious and was unlike any other gf/frozen ravioli I have tried

    My daughter loved the gluten free pizza! She also has a dairy allergy, so we were so impressed that they also had Daiya cheese for her pizza! Very impressed by their knowledge and awareness over importance of not having any cross contamination.

    Will see how this goes... Offer gf penne and gf pizza but asked if Alfredo sauce was gf and 3 employees at takeout didn't know and one went to check and said no it's not because it has cheese. Huh? I ordered a gf cheese pizza. Questioning the celiac friendliness in the kitchen right now.

    I am so excited that Y Not moved into my neighborhood. They have GF pizza, pasta, sub rolls and even dessert. They also have dairy-free cheese. Service is friendly and efficient, food is great and prices are reasonable. This is one of our family's favorite restaurants.
