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.

Arugula salad, radiatore in cartoccio, linguine with clams, spaghetti & meatballs & panna cotta with strawberries were all excellent. Service is energetic. One of the best traditional italian venues.

The food was great. It was a group of 6 of us and everyone loved their meal - the fish, pasta and pork chops were delicious. Great ambiance, the restaurant is big, so its a great spot to bring a group. Service was mediocre - timeliness was fine, but the waiter was not very helpful or friendly. I would definitely recommend for the food though, was very good!

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We shared a pizza to start and all eight of us were happy. From veal chop parm to linguine with clams, salads, eggplant ravioli everyone thought it was a great meal. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Can’t wait to go back

We came to NYC for business and hard a difficult time choosing an Italian restaurant. So many. We had a most wonderful dinner with tasty well prepared food, wait staff that was attentive and pleasant, and yummy desserts to finish it off. I would certainly return with my family on our next NY vacation so they can experience it too. This place was much better than the place we went to near Times Square this past spring.

Love this place! I come here all the time when I need a restaurant that's near midtown (i.e. close to a Ranger game, meeting a friend coming into Penn or Grand Central, after a day of department store shopping, etc.), and it never disappoints. Food is consistently outstanding, as are the prices. I've had amazing meals here for a fraction of the cost (and better-tasting) than some of those fashionable, overpriced new places in other parts of the city. The place itself is beautiful - you feel like you've been transported. And, most importantly, the staff is always beyond friendly! From the hostess, to the bartenders, to the wait staff, everyone is friendly, welcoming, and attentive.

Trattoria Zero Otto Nove was a fantastic spot for an Italian dinner. Everything we tried off the menu was incredible, along with the excellent service. The restaurant was packed since it was a Saturday night, but the meal was truly fantastic, and I will be returning next time I visit the city!

The food and service were good and the atmosphere was very nice. However, the Dover Sole was fair at best. When this dish is on a menu we always look forward to ordering it, but in this instance it was underwhelming. Would be willing to give it another chance

After living in NYC for over thirty years I’m convinced you should only order pasta at Italian restaurants. I ordered the bass. What a disaster. Who serves fresh fish with a brown gravy sauce. The fish was so overcooked it melted. My mate ordered a five meat dish and the braciole had a foul odor. What a lovely evening. The only thing good was the $70.00 bottle of wine.

The Food varied widely in quality. The black bean soup was outstanding, as were the yucca fries. The tops Vijay was tasty but heavily over salted. The Paella was burnt. The espresso was undrinkable. Nobody asked how anything was. We would have told them.

Hello, I believe you have us mixed up with another restaurant as we do not serve black bean soup, yucca fries, or paella. We exclusively serve Italian food.

My experience was terrific! The service at the bar and then at table was great. For appetizer we had the burrata and it was delicious. I wanted linguini with seafood and our server recommended how a dish with seafood they could use linguini instead. My linguini di mare was a 10. My date had the branzino and loved it. Topped off a great dinner with tiramasu and sambuca. Great experience. I will return.

The NYC outpost of an Arthur Avenue favorite can hold its own against its original older brother. As with the original, authentic pizza is the star of the show, though the other dishes are no slouches. What else would you expect from Chef Roberto, the Arthur Avenue legend.

This has become a go to lunch spot. Easy for commercial parking. Seating is not cramped. Food is good. Bartender and cocktails are great. Specials are always interesting. I believe 4th time, and there will be a bunch more. Never had an unhappy guest that's joined me.

Really disappointed about the food. Quality has gone down since the last time I was here.

Appetizer:
Beets and burrata: burrata was good. No condiments on beets
Mozzarella caprese: mozzarella worst than a supermarket mozzarella. Considering that this restaurant started in the Bronx in Arthur Ave where you can have an almost authentic Italian mozzarella

Main:
Cacio e pepe: flavor was good but pasta over cooked. This is a tragedy for any serious Italian restaurant
Tagliatelle al tartufo (special of the day): no complain
Pizza margherita: salty
Risotto pescatore: if you can’t a good one remove it from the menu

Desert:
Cannoli something: stick to regular cannoli and btw there is no cannella in the cannoli filling.

So if you want to eat decent Italian food don’t come here. I won’t anymore from an Italian born and raised
