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
  • "We were party of 5. Waiters were very attentive and made recommendations. Answered all our questions. Will accommodate gluten free upon request -no flour no wheat no breadcrumbs. Very good wine. 2 hours was not enough and we were not rushed. Desserts were awesome- profiteroles and chocolate cake great. Parking lot right next door. Thursday night was lively. Very pretty inside and nice bar. Will go back."

  • "I visited Zero Otto Nove on 4/5/14 with three friends to celebrate my birthday. The food was spectacular. All four of us sampled each other's meals, and each one was terrific. The service was exceptional. The waiters were very attentive and went above and beyond to ensure we had a superior dining experience. I would highly recommend Zero Otto Nove, and can't wait to go back!"

  • "No the same Italian quality as the Arthur Avenue restaurant. Pizza's were very doughy not crispy at all. Seafood salad was plentiful. Pasta was a bit too al dente to the point of chewy. Rabbit dish ha way too many bones, short ribs were chewy and veal dish just plain boring .Dessert was nothing special."

  • "The flatiron branch of this Arthur Avenue stand out is every bit as good. This is the Italian trattoria transported to NY. Not to be missed."

  • "We had heard great things about the food, and everything was on point! The food was amazing, so authentic and fresh! Unfortunately, it was a sad scene, especially for a Friday night. We were only 1 of two tables, so it felt like every waiter was on our side. They also sent the cooks home before we finished our meal, so we were unable to order dessert. A little disappointed here. Wish it was more of a lively scene."

  • "This is a perfectly fine Italian restaurant but nothing special. The room is attractive although somewhat noisy. The more traditional dishes were good--my daughter loved her gnocchi. My rigatoni with seafood was fine but not great. The salads were also not particularly good. The pizza looked good--based on the bread and and dough for my husband's calzone the pizza is probably a better bet than the spaghetti."

  • "I have been to Zero 4 times and it is consistently delicious. Last nights dinner with 2 others was outstanding. They had 2 kinds of fish and I had linguini with clam sauce that Is my measure of a good Italian restaurant. From the bread to the perfectly seasoned broccoli rabe, I can't wait to go back."

  • "Had a great dinner with out of town midwestern friends. Both myself and my husband are italian american foodies, we found the food to be authentic and well prepared. Our dinner guests were excited to eat REAL NY Italian food."

  • "Old friend and I had dinner there Thursday evening, March 22, 2014. Wine by glass was good. Next, for an appetizer we split pizza topped with fresh mozzarella, broccoli rabe and sausage. The pizza was delicious. We both ordered the veal medallion special and my veal was very chewy and not what I would expect for $30. Friend said his was OK. The dish was flavorful but chewing the veal was such a chore I did not enjoy it. I have been going to Roberto’s restaurant in the Bronx since it was on the corner of Crescent Street when the sign still said Tony and Roberto and Roberto’s sister Anna, was the waitress. I have had many veal dishes over the years there so I had something to compare it to and my expectations were not met this time."

  • "Disappointed, thought the food would be over the top and unfortunately it was less than appetizing, supposedly owned by Roberto from Arthur Avenue where the food is wonderful. The food was thrown on the plates, tables are uncomfortable, very loud, the only thing they got right being in NYC are the prices, the food was so not worth the cost. After dinner stopped at the bar for an after dinner drink, they poured a good cognac in a juice glass, when I questioned the bartender he poured it into a brandy snifter...I give it 6 months."

  • "I had dinner here with 4 girlfriends on a Saturday night. The pizza was pretty good, especially the pizza with butternut squash. The waiter was very rude, short, and made us feel like we were annoying him anytime we had a question or asked for anything. There are too many good restaurants in NYc to go back again."

  • "We went here after seeing a show at the Irish Repertory Theatre around the corner. It was perfect spot. We had been to the one on Arthur Ave in the Bronx a number of times so we were optimistic and we were not disappointed. My only observation is that the wine list should have had a few more reasonably priced options in a place that also serves pizza. We need up with a nice Brunello and our meals were great."

  • "Zero Otto Nove is very good italian food and you won't have to break your bank. Made 5:45 reservations for Valentine's Day and was seated without having to wait. ordered a linguini with cuttlefish with black squid ink, which tasted delicious considering it was my first time trying it. We made the tail-end of happy hour so our first two drinks were half off, which contributing to our bill being under $80 for two. The restaurant became crowded relatively quickly, but I would prefer that over a place where you are the only ones there. Overall: great restaurant especially for the price."

  • "At the recommendation of a NYC resident we tried TZON on Valentine's Day for a late dinner. While the noise level was still very high even at that our, the food and service more than made up for it. Fast table service, a very knowledgeable waiter, attentive service assistants and the FOOOD! were fantastic. We enjoyed a calamari appetizer that was original and delicious- not your typical deep fried squid rings. Our main courses were delightful and the portions more than adequate. You will not go wrong with this restaurant. As a bonus, it was even moderately priced- I did not feel that we were being gouged for what we received. Can't wait to go back again!"

  • "Went for Valentine's Day. Arrived early, but didn't have to wait for our table. Server was attentive, although a bit awkward. The meatball appetizer was delicious, and the pasta was absolutely phenomenal. The chicken was overcooked, so it wasn't as good. Overall a good experience for Valentine's day. Did not have a V-day menu, which is always a plus. Cocktails were not good. Stick to the beers/wines."

  • "My first time dining at Zero Otto and it is just what I had hoped for, an interesting menu that still speaks to my craving for good Southern Italian cooking. The service was excellent. I am looking forward to going back to sit at the bar with a glass of wine and a pizza from the brick oven (look yummy). This review from "A Real New Yorker" who grew up in Brooklyn eating the best Italian food!"

  • "We found this restaurant because we were staying in the neighborhood. Food was very good, service was excellent but not obtrusive. Would go again if we were in the area."

  • "Very nice dinner. Food was terrific, portion just right. Pizza was delicious. Grill octopus, meatball appetizer were tasty. Pastas were so fresh - cream of truffle pasta, ink squid. We had impeccable service maybe due to quiet Sunday night. Our Italian server was attentive, professional and good looking! Will def go back to try other things!!"

  • "Such a wonderful restaurant! The food was delicious -- some of us were vegetarian and the menu included so many choices for everyone. From the fluffy bread to the exceptional special appetizer of scallops and shrimp in a roasted sauce to the pear and goat cheese salad, we started the meal off in an outstanding way. Then we tried the grilled chicken with smoked mozzarella; orriechetti (sp?) with broccoli rabe, and pasta with squash and mushrooms. We were amazed at how delicate and delicious everything tasted. Afterwards, the cappuccino was fresh, very hot and absolutely one of the best we have ever had. Added to the wonderful food was a lovely, warm ambience and incredibly attentive (without being annoying) wait staff. We'll be back!"

  • "Just a short cab ride from Madison Sqare Garden and excellent dishes. True Trattoria from very special pizza to fine pasta dishes. Very nice space, very open. We ate early before a Ranger game and sat right at a window seat, great for people watching. When you have finished your meal, be sure to order a glass of the homemade Lemoncello."

  • "Delicious food, big servings and the service was very good as well. The only thing I didn't like was where we were seated by the host despite request for a quiet spot, she put us next to the bar area. Service and the quality of food made up for the hostess's shortcoming, however. Good place!"

  • "I had been to Roberto's at Arthur Avenue in the Bronx recently and when I needed to find a place for a group of 12, I remembered the hostess telling me about their restaurant in Manhattan. Everyone in the group, all frequent diners for both business and personal, enjoyed it and expect to return. Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Restaurant is on my rotation."

  • "Food was fine - delicious pizzas - but noise level was much too loud. Probably because of all the cement and brick of the walls although that gives the place a nice rustic look. But I'd rather be able to hear my table companions and the waiter. Service was lovely - most attentive without being too much in the way. Would like to try the original on Arthur Avenue."

  • "Made a reservation for 5 for to celebrate mine and my fathers birthdays on a Saturday. Asked for a quiet table which we were given. Ambiance is great(very spacious and great for groups) staff is very very attentive, food is delicious and I will be back again! Everyone from the hostess to coat check to bus boys to waiters all very nice. This restaurant has it down on all fronts. We ate so much food and were stuffed so we declined dessert. Knowing the reservation was made for two birthdays the waitress returned with a big piece of home made tiramisu with two candles in it. That goes a long way in my book. Highly recommend!"

  • "Four friends went for an early dinner after the theater, allowing us to arrive at 5:30. The early hour afforded us a table in a quiet alcove that was really nice for conversation. The waiters were attentive and the service, delightful. We shared all dishes and the waiters divided the dishes up for us making it really easy. The food was good, particularly the pastas steamed in foil. The only complaint was that the appetizers were not hot (temperature) enough. Otherwise it was a pleasant dining experience."

  • "Nice large restaurant with buzzy vibe and large bar at front. Good range of pastas, pizzas & larger dishes. Modern, bare brick walls decor. Not cheap - mid price range but could keep costs down if you were careful. close to Madison Square Park and Union Square."
