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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "We love this place -- been back twice and will continue to go. The food is fantastic, genuine italian. The wine list is substantial, good choice and fairly priced. The chef's specials are different and delicious. And, it's all done with terrific and smiling service. Really an excellent restaurant."

  • "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."

  • "The food is totally reminiscent of being there with a longer menu of pastas, meats, and interesting vegetable dishes, no boring fare here! The inventive and incredibly delicious cannoli are the perfect dessert, crispy and creamy. Mangia!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "My pasta and vegetable dish was overcooked. The coffee was stale and bitter, but they did make a fresh pot for me after noticing that I was not drinking the coffee."

  • "As an establishment from Arthur Avenue, we had higher expectations. The pizza was fine, but definitely not near the best we've had."

  • "We have been to Roberto's two restaurants in the Bronx and wanted to give the Manhattan location a try. We were not disappointed.The food was excellent as usual. Looking forward to trying the new location in Armonk."

  • "I think my expectations were too high. The connection to Roberto in the Bronx gave me high hopes. I found the food here quite ordinary."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "This is the best Italian food outside Italy. It follows the tradition of its sister restaurants in Arthur Avenue of homemade extraordinary Italian food. The portions are big suitable to have a tapas type experience. Great for groups!"

  • "Very good food and service. Relatively reasonable."

  • "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."

  • "Love black pasta with squid ink ! and grilled octopus is must, so soft and delicious, though a bit noisy and if you come with group, it's hard to talk ...anyway, will come back soon."

  • "Server and staff were attentive and responsive while not rushing any point of the meal. Polpettine, Polenta and Caprino and Rigatoni Salernitana were excellent."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Both the hostess and the waiter seemed to not care at all that we were there, let alone happy or satisfied with anything. Yet, the food was top notch and so that was good."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "VERY disappointing. My salad had marinated mushrooms drenched in vinegar. Sauce on pasta was anemic. Server substituted veg for potatoes on my wife order as though it was a very big deal. Plus---good negroni, foccaccia, olive oil. Won't be back."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Yet another great meal was had at Zero Otto Nove. Always try the specials."

  • "We went here for dinner this visit to NYC after enjoying our expereince last year. We were not disappointed. Staff wanted to please. Food was very good. Pasta cooked perfectly - pizza authentic thin crust with fresh mozzerella. Will bea destination restaurant when we come back to NYC."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "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!"

  • "we've been to the restaurant on Arthur Ave. and were excited to try this new location. food was very good, but like the ambiance of the other one better. we sat next to a table with an annoying toddler playing with an iphone that made a beeping sound the whole dinner. missed the baby octopus in tomato sauce that we had at the other restaurant."

  • "We were a bit disappointed in this place. Pasta portions were small, ravioli lacked contrast or garnish, but the pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe, bread, and branzino were excellent. Branzino came with no sides. Rabbit sauce was a bit strong and salty. Desserts were good, not great. Also, we wanted to split the bill (party of 3 and party of 4) but mgmt. didn't allow it."
