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.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely quiet dinner by the window on Saturday evening. I highly recommend the window seat unless you are a big group. Nice and quiet and relaxing. Food was abundant and delicious. Of course you have to finish off with the delicious gelato. Highly recommend this place!

Delicious meal at Zero Otto Nove! Stumbled upon this restaurant on a whim and was very pleased. My mom and I started with the mini meatballs, then she had the veal dish with prosciutto, red peppers and mozzarella and I had the black truffle fettuccine. The meatballs and the tomato sauce on top were both so flavorful. They also shaved the truffle on the pasta fresh!!!! It was AMAZING. Definitely will return.

I’m so happy to be back dining at Trattoria Zero Otto Nove. The food and service has continued to be excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant. The Bronx location is also wonderful.

I know the long-standing restaurant up on Arthur Avenue, so I was curious to try the Manhattan location. They have a similar pizza oven, with the same gold tiles, gas fired. The food was EXCELLENT. Great pizza, wonderful appetizers, terrific specials, very good desert. It's an excellent restaurant and I hope it thrives. I will be going back, plenty more. It's not easy to make pizza as good as that...

The food was very good as it always is, however, our waiter disappeared midway through dinner and never to be seen again. We eventually got service but it was a little awkward.

Everything, from welcoming us at the door and checking on us frequently, to the food and drinks, was spectacular. I ordered a fettucine dish with a truffle parmesan sauce and black truffle on top. The sauce was not too creamy and exquisitely flavorful, while the pasta was cooked perfectly, and soaked up just enough sauce to make each bite as savory as the last. The Manhattan 089 and the Flatiron Express cocktails were also delicious in their own respect, poured with an expert heavy hand. 10/10 without a doubt

We celebrated Mother’s Day at Zero and the experience was just perfect. We had a late reservation so we missed the crowds but we were not rushed and received top notch service. Food was amazing! Can’t go wrong with anything you choose to order.

We sat near the kitchen where they were making dessert and the waiters/whomever makes the deserts were using their BARE hands to put the desert on the plate. Sorry but this is not ok during COVID. Are you kidding me?

As a rule we have only been doing takeout during Covid but we needed to be in NYC for an elderly relative and needed dinner. I felt EXTREMELY comfortable with their covid accommodations. Their food , as usual, was delicious and service helpful. Highly recommend

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.
