Ynot Italian is expanding to a location near the intersection of Princess Anne and Dam Neck roads. The restaurant will be the third Ynot in Virginia Beach and the sixth in South Hampton Roads.
Founder Tony DiSilvestro said the Princess Anne location is scheduled to open in October 2017.
“We’ve been blessed. We’re really doing well,” he said Monday.
The new restaurant will be part of and accessed through the Landstown Commons Shopping Center, according to city planning documents. It will be built near Princess Anne Road’s intersection with Winterberry Lane.
The new site needs more parking, so the owners intend to buy a 60-foot-wide strip of adjacent land from the city to add spaces, according to the planning documents. The City Council has a request on its agenda Tuesday to rezone that strip of land from agricultural to business use. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the request 10-0.
DiSilvestro said he hopes to break ground on the new location within the next six months.
Ynot also has locations in Great Neck and Kempsville in Virginia Beach, in Great Bridge and Greenbrier in Chesapeake, and in Ghent in Norfolk.
