When Tony and his wife Cyndi founded Ynot in 1993, the decision was made to put Tony’s name on every location and box of food they prepared. (Ynot is Tony spelled backwards - a throwback to his childhood nickname). Using Tony’s name was their testament to the relentless commitment they had to high quality, hand-crafted food. When Tony’s brother Harry joined the company, their shared childhood experience of cooking alongside their Italian parents and grandparents, informed not only their love of good food and authentic Italian flavors, but also time spent around the family dinner table.
Everyone at Ynot knows that family dinners are harder and harder to make happen these days, which is why we want you to consider our restaurant your dining table, and our staff your family. Whether you’re ordering in any of our delicious food or coming to our restaurant, we’ve made your food with the same quality and care we would make for our own family, so that you can enjoy it with yours. This is the Ynot way and this is “Y” we’re honored to share our table with you and your family.

We personally visit the farms and partners who provide our authentic, Italian-style cheeses, fresh produce and quality meats. We continue to check in on and visit these farms to ensure their practices and products are up to our high standards. We also care about our customers with dietary restrictions, which is why we offer dairy and gluten-free options!
Every customer, guest & employee of Ynot Italian is our family. We are honored to be part of your table & focus on providing a terrific family dining experience. The culture of Ynot Italian embodies family - whether it’s employees or customers. When you look at everyone as family, you don’t just treat them better, you feed them better.
When you care deeply about your customers and employees, you also care about the communities in which they live, work and play. That’s why we are honored to support many local nonprofit and charitable missions in our restaurants’ communities. To help support our communities even more, we created our own nonprofit, YNot Educate Foundation, which helps provide grants for special projects in elementary and middle schools.
