Trattoria Zero Otto Nove
Great for all eating typesWent recently with my husband and 2 adult children, my husband and I are vegan and my daughter is an ovo-lacto vegetarian, while my son is a meat lover. The menu accomodated all of us. The restaurant even offered a 2 no cheese pizzas. Would definitely go back5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBig SurpriseThis restaurant had been recommended so we decided to try it. Interesting Cavelike ambiance, very noisy, great for large groups...But then came the surprise. We had the best service we have ever had. 4 of us decided to order appetizers, pizza and salads and share it all rather than a main plate. When we were served, our waitress took it upon herself to bring it all as if it were different courses. She brought the pizza first, then the salad, then the meat dishes thyen the seafood. She divided it all and served each of us and was so delightful. The food was excellent and we would go back...but be warned, they cater to alot of large parties5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian FoodTrattoria Zero Otto Nove has a Fantastic pizza and Great Italian Food the place is not casual but neither formal is good for group of friends but also for business dinners5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian FoodSeated promptly for our 8:30pm reservation. Host was cordial upon arrived...but not attentive to guests that were leaving. My husband initiated saying goodbye and to say "thank you." Customer service should not only be to greet incoming clients but outgoing ones as well. Wait person was friendly. Seated by the window...right next to the bar... very noisy! Hard to converse. Polipo alla griglia... excellent starter...soft.. great flavor! Zuppa di cocozza was flavorful but too watery...expected richer consistency. My husband had the linguini al nero di seppia...loved it! The chef accomodated by adding extra garlic. My radiatori in cartoccio...delicioso! Flavors were well blended and rich. Nice date place. Likely will come back again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous! Food is great! WeFabulous! Food is great! We were a group of 6 everyone loved it. Highly Recommended!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNobody should ever call this placeLike the original in the Bronx zero has outstanding pizza and great appetizers for sharing among a big group. The entrees
Rees were very good and everything arrived on time. The space is and attractive and the buzz is high as it is filled with lots of groups of vibrant young people.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and ambiance.Great food and ambiance. The pastas are simply the best, particularly the in Cartoccio. The seafood salad is a great mix of the freshest seafood and makes a good appetizer to share. Portions are amply sized and the pizza is one of the best around. My only nit is that they have a long list of "specials" (no prices mentioned) and some of the prices are way above even the most expensive entrees on the menu. But it's definitely a "be back".4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper tasty Italian!For starters, the service here is great. The staff always remembers you and they are always eager to serve and please- very, very pleasant people. The grilled octopus is delicious and the white bean salad that accompanies it is phenomenally tasty! (I do wish they had more of a selection in terms of salads though...) Also, their pizzas are incredible with a wonderfully cooked crust, and their spaghetti with marinara and goat cheese is delectable.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSouthern Italian in the Flatiron!Pretty good to great southern Italian food. Great ambiance. On a Saturday night, fully booked, with a bachelorette party going on near us, noise levels were fine. Service was attentive but not to the point of being a distraction. Water glasses got filled when needed, and when one of our party dropped their fork on the floor, a new one was offered about 30 seconds later, no request needed.
The radiatore pasta cooked in tinfoil was pretty fantastic, and the polpettine with spicy red sauce were very good. Wine list was varied, a lot of emphasis on southern Italy as well.
Overall very good experience, would definitely go back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTook a loud group of 10 peopleTook a loud group of 10 people there on a Friday night. We fit right in as even the small tables of two were having a lively time. Food was fantastic and not your traditional Italian faire - lots of interesting twists on classic favorites.
So while I wouldn't recommend this for a quiet engagement dinner, this is definitely a blast for most other fun / celebratory occasions.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little restaurant!!What a great little restaurant. I found Zero Otto Nove while in New York on Business. Stopped in for dinner one night making my reservation through OpenTable. From the minute I entered the staff was very hospitable, attentive and friendly. The food is absolutely tremendous. I've never been one for eating Brussels sprouts but even those in the dish I ordered were tasty. Bread with olive oil as one would expect at a respectable Italian restaurant. They have a nice wine list with options by the glass or bottle from inexpensive to high end. The dessert selection is also lengthy and of course fantastic quality. I highly recommend checking them out.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very happy with thisWe were very happy with this find and we are foodies. We had the special pizza of the day as a shared appetizer. Amazing. Our meals were very good and innovative. The rigatoni with squash puree, peas and porcinni mushrooms were perfection. The veal medalions were different and delicious. The meal rating would have been excellent if the zuppa de mer had been evenly heated so the seafood was evenly cooked. Service could not have been better. I'd definitely would return.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible food! One of ourIncredible food! One of our party was arriving late and they went out of their way to make accommodations for our small group. Service was superb!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
