A word from Trattoria Zero Otto Nove
Roberto Paciullo’s hometown of Salerno is transported to the streets of Manhattan. Zero Otto Nove is the second outpost of his famous restaurants from Arthur Ave. in the Bronx. From the atmosphere to the food, stopping by Zero Otto Nove is taking a quick trip to Italy. The wood-burning brick oven is at the center turning out classics like the Margherita, and Roberto's originals, such as La Riccardo with butternut squash puree, smoked mozzarella, spicy pancetta, and basil. All the pastas are homemade, and all ingredients are brought in from New York's Real Little Italy, Arthur Avenue.

    Came here for a birthday. Great space to handle large parties. Food was good, but nothing amazing. Service was excellent. The waiters kept coming by to make sure that our glasses were kept full.

    we just moved to the neighborhood and are attempting to try all of the restaurants that are nearby. we got to 089, (the area code for salerno, we were informed) at 9:15. there were a couple of other tables but clearly they were looking to close for the night. that being said, the staff could not have been nicer or accommodating, we never felt rushed. the interior legitimately felt like being in italy, not in an epcot sort of way. all of the food was delicious, the vegetables in the salads were all fresh. we will definitely go back.

    I absolutely love this restaurant. I have dined here several times and each and every experience has been amazing. From the service to the delicious food, the restaurant has a wonderful vibrant atmosphere. I dined here this past Saturday night with a group of 9 to celebrate a birthday, not only was the food outstanding, but our Waiter (Bucky) was excellent. My family was impressed with the entire experience and the authentic Italian cuisine. A must to try is the grilled octopus appetizer and the Radiatore pasta dish. You really can't go wrong with any selection from the menu. Did I mention their notable wine list!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant and am already planning my next visit.

    An informal, dining room with well-spaced tables, very clean and not noisy. Service was very good. There are many specials of the day, although we stuck to the menu. This was a business lunch for two and the restaurant was perfect. We shared a perfectly prepared grilled octopus. I had a grilled skirt steak over baby arugula ordered medium and served medium - pretty good for a meat that is often under or overcooked. There are many interesting pastas, both on and off the menu. My companion had a pasta and was very pleased. We skipped dessert and coffee, but there are ample selections. The wine list was limited, but reasonably priced. I do a lot of business entertaining and this place fits the bill perfectly.

    The two most outstanding qualities about Zero Otto Nove is its pastas and ambiance. In a city inundated with very obnoxiously loud eateries, this place is a refreshing retreat. The pastas are all home made and really delicious. Plus, it's the perfect place to have an intimate evening with people you would like to connect to while sharing a tasty meal. Whether it be a family, close group of friends or significant other. In a city filled with many tight quarter restaurants with low ceilings and bad noise acoustics, Zero Otto Nove offers a more civilized experience without having to break the bank and minus the pretension.

    A late night find- great, attentive service, huge portions of delicious food- and the bartender mixed my favorite cocktail superbly! The tables are ample and each in their own space- not on top of each other, so even though there is an elevated noise level, you can hear your dinner mates' voices and carry on a conversation. The place is spacious and gracefully decorated, and true to its original Arthur Avenue roots!

    This is our new go-to restaurant in the flat-iron neighborhood for reliably good food and very good pizza. But the real stand-out is service that is rare to find in this sort of casual restaurant in which you are treated with just the right degree of special attention with none of the unctuousness that generally goes along with it. A very nice experience, as long as it's not too busy and noisy.

    This is the second time we dined here. Had a wonderful first experience so returned. Again the food was wonderful, staff very nice & service was very good. Both times were Sunday early dinner so can't comment on crowds/noise. The dishes are wonderful! We love Roberto's on Arthur Ave after Yankees games so to find this gem on 21st St made us very happy!

    Had dinner with a group of 4 after work on Friday Evening. We ordered 3 different entries at our table (goat cheese stuffed raviolis, tin foil pasta dish, Veal Osso Buco) and all were delicious. We enjoyed the miniature meatballs with polenta as an appetizer. Cocktails were also very good with a very nice wine recommendation made by our waiter. Overall the service was excellent. We have eaten at Robertos in the Bronx which happens to be a favorite. Trattoria Zero Otto Nove lived up to Roberto's Reputation for delicious food. Overall a very enjoyable experience. It is a change in ambiance from other NYC locations as it is quite spacious. This is great for groups but makes it is a bit noisy. We will return.

    While there is nothing memorable about the food, we once again enjoyed the experience. The food is certainly good, earthy and plentiful, though not intricate or especially distinctive. We enjoyed the three courses we had (a sausage and broccoli rabe appetizer, rabbit cacciatore and a seafood risotto), especially the appetizer (the sausage was excellent). We also had an interesting side of sauteed escarole (if I remember correctly) with capers, anchovies and parmesan. The risotto was a bit more like paella than a traditional risotto, but tasty and plentiful. The rabbit was a bit on the bony side but moist and flavorful. The wine list offers a wide variety of Italian options, with many at affordable prices. Our server was excellent.

    No matter what I order, it's always superb. The pasta dishes are made to order and come piping hot. The pizza is out of this world with a thin curst so it's not too filling. And, the fish entrees are always cooked to perfection. We started with the meatballs and polenta on this visit as well as the eggplant appetizer and both were good. The meatballs melt in your mouth. We then got a pizza (arugula) and an entree to split and it ended up being the perfect amount of food (if you don't mind being full!). Save room for the tiramusa or biscotti, both are a real treat. Love this place!!!!!!!

    Came here for a birthday celebrations. It had a very dark, rustic, Italian feel to the place. The marghertia brick oven pizza was the highlight of our meal. The short ribs were decent. I would pass on the squid ink pasta and the grilled octopus... Other places do a better job. The chocolate lava cake with ice cream was delicious.

    NOTHING was seasoned properly! While conceptually menu items were delicious on paper, they were lost in translation on the plate. Everything needed salt. I don't think the recipes were tasted throughout... The meal was nearly $100 and not worth it in the least bit. Our server was nice. The ambiance is nice as they use marble tables and you can hear your guests. I won't go back. There is better food out there.

    What a spot. The food is to die, I walked in the door and smelled the truffles... I had to order the pasta special with freshly shaved black truffles & parm - it was the hit of the table. Everything else was spot on too, though. Our waiter was so so nice, didn't rush us at all. The restaurant itself is a nice design, as if you're eating all fresco in the streets of Salerno. Proper pizza oven - didn't have pizza but it looked great. All pasta is homemade, my dad absolutely loved his veal entree. Antipasti wasn't like any we've had - and as Italians, good Italian food is a TOUGH sell. It was our first time there (& I brought my parents), and they were asking the waiter if they take Easter reservations... now THAT'S a compliment! Bravo 089!

    I had high hopes for this restaurant bc apparently the one in the Bronx is amazing. The food was very average. There was nothing special about the dishes we ordered and the atmosphere struck me as more of a chain restaurant than a hidden gem. Even the menu had more of a chain restaurant vibe and the ingredients didn't seem fresh or authentic. The service was friendly and the wine was ok but as far as Italian food goes, there are much better restaurants in NYC.

    I went here for dinner with a group of 6 on a Thursday evening. The restaurant is spacious and there was plenty of room for our party. We ordered a lot of wine, which was a bit pricey, and a mix of pizzas and entrees. I had pizza, which was very good. We stayed for several hours and did not feel pressured to leave or wrap up our meal, and the staff were very attentive and accommodating throughout. Overall, a great dinner experience.
