Italian
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.

Really good service and well spaced out indoors. Food is meh, just ok. Ordered the special which was a pasta with clams and shrimp in chickpea sauce. This was really disappointing- they had the small clams (maybe 4) and m shrimp (medium size-4). This dish was more expensive than the steak which was also disappointing, should have gotten a normal pasta off their menu. The pasta is also super grainy due to the chickpea.

Hangar steak was rubbery and dry, had to chew so much... didn’t want to eat the leftovers but did since I was hungry.

One of the best dinners I have had in a long time. This pandemic has been hard on a lot of restaurants like this one, but it seemed as though they hadn’t missed a beat. Excellent, very attentive service. Food was to die for and everyone was socially distancing and following protocol as well. I missed indoor dining very much and would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asked. Thank you to everyone at Zero Otto Nove, your service was well appreciated.

Booked a last minute reservation here on Valentine’s Day. I had normal expectations but they were blown out of the water! They put in attention to little details to make the experience so cute and romantic:) The staff was all very attentive and the food and drinks were all delicious. Not one complaint I can think of!

Albeit outside dining venue, restaurant’s strategic placement of propane heating towers made the experience tolerable during this early January dining experience due to Covid guidelines. Staff was very attentive despite outdoor dining.

Although a smaller menu, our favorites were still available. Both spaced dining inside and tented outdoor dining. Staff is always attentive and friendly. We missed coming here for the short ribs, pizza and delicious pasta.

My parents were visiting and I wanted to take them somewhere delicious. After reading tons of reviews of different restaurants in the city I decided on here. It absolutely exceeded expectations and we spoke multiple times about how fabulous the meal was! From the food, to the service to the atmosphere, this place just has that something special. There’s a warmth in the air that makes you feel relaxed and free to unwind
