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.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Zero Otto and will definitely be returning on future trips to NYC. Ordered everything our waiter recommended and it was all fabulous. Great sea bass special and pasta with fresh black truffle. Lovely profiteroles and cheesecake for dessert and the red wines were fabulous!

    Good Italian fare. Service needs improvement. Went on a not very busy Sunday Evening and the service was slow and irregular. One drink served instead of two. Vegetable served well into our meal. Forgotten bread. They usually do better. Even so......Pasta was great.

    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.

    I didn't enjoy the food as much as i thought I would since my daughter raved about it. Very small portion as well for a very expensive price. No side dish with the chicken. Etc..i would not go there again but that's my opinion my daughter loves it and brings people all the time.

    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!

    We've been to this restaurant a few times and it's always very good. They have some unique pasta dishes such as one with butternut squash which is terrific as well as some of the best pizza in NYC! Definitely make reservations in advance. It's a casual dining experience with excellent food!

The chef's specials are different and delicious. And, it's all done with terrific and smiling service. Really an excellent restaurant.

    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.

    Two New Yorkers and three world travelers from Sydney who wanted to try pizza in New York (their favorite was in Italy...) but didn't want to shlep to the outer-boroughs - we picked Zero Otto Nove because they have a home restaurant on Arthur Avenue. The pizza was great - thin but chewy crust, tasty sauce and good topping options. The kids loved the margherita; our favorite was the broccoli rabe & sausage. The pasta with truffles (a seasonal special) also got raves. For dessert, we loved their take on cannoli and the cheesecake. I rated it good instead of very good because the service was a little confused. I would definitely go again.

    Service was great! But that was it. Food was just OK, some dishes were too salty. The meat was cook well, but the grill calamari were nothing special. Small pieces and a bit too salty, can't even rembrred how it was served! The meatballs were small without much flavor and a bit to compressed. Sauce was good but the dish was too salty. Salad the same, and the eggplant was sliced into thing strips. Placed on top? The cannoli was unrolled she'll was oily and the filling tasted just like cream no cannoli flavor?? Forccctcha was good the Italian bread was nothing special, just a veciel for dipping into the olive oil. Olive oil again nothing special. The atmospher was very null and it was clam and quiet,but no energy or excitement! Just ok.

    This restaurant used to be so good. I had a great meal with friends here back in early February. I went on Tuesday with a friend and we both had shockingly bad meals. The meatballs in the appetizer tasted as if they had been sitting in the refrigerator for about a week. The fish entree I had appeared to be a frozen fillet which was drenched in a tasteless tomato sauce. My companion had the seafood pasta special which had almost no seafood in the dish. Overall, a truly lousy meal and I will not be returning anytime soon.

    Regarding the food: I didn't care for my selection, Orecchiette with shrimp, scallops, & cauliflower. The shrimp were very little and the dish was 'fishy' tasting. My (3) friends thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the deconstructed cannoli they shared for dessert. I was disappointed with the service. Perhaps our server was just having a bad night or they were short handed last Saturday night...nonetheless, I had to get up 3x to find someone who could find our server and direct him to our table. Interestingly, there were more large parties (8-10 people) than smaller parties dining there. Good to know if you need to organize a birthday celebration! I'll definitely go back and try the pizza which is rumored to be fantastic!

    The appetizer menu blew me away. The plates feature a selection of veggies, meats and/or cheese, and we chose one that was basically vegetarian. It was a mixture of hot and cold. Terrific stuff made with excellent olive oil. Like being in Italy. The homemade ravioli was fine, salad was what you'd expect. A fun atmosphere and architecturally interesting. We will definately return for those appetizers, and try some others. Oh, and the bread was excellent too!
