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.

Always a treat to eat at Zero Otto Nove. With the addition of the heaters outside on the patio we are back to going every week! Authentic Italian at its best!

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.

The food was incredible! Best octopus I have ever eaten! Superior drinks and prompt, courteous service! The table was wobbly and we were outside with scaffolding encroaching on our table.

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

My favorite Italian spot! I’ve been dining here for a while and today was the first time eating after the Covid shut down. They have a much more minuted menu so your favorites might not be available.

SO yummy! We got the osso bucco and the truffle radiatori. Both were DELICIOUS!

We also ordered the mozzarella salad and the octopus appetizers and they were great.

They have a great outdoor setup on 21st street and it's quiet / cozy so you won't be bothered by traffic or loud passersby.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our meals and outdoor dining. They’re doing a great job conforming to the new COVID requirements. The halibut was wonderful!
I would like to go back and experience the indoor dining once the pandemic subsides.

Came with my 4.5 year old for an early dinner (530pm). Wasn't crowded at all, the pastas were lovely, service was good, and the space was great for groups or kids as there was plenty of room so you aren't bumped up against other diners.
