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.

Second time there in under a month - new favorite Italian place in the neighborhood. Great, classic dishes + attentive staff. Over the two times we visited we had: Apps - meatballs + zucchini parm, Pasta - special, short rib ravioli + special, veal ragu w pappardelle + pasta w sausage and smoked mozz, Pizza - Patate Salsiccia e Provola. ALL GREAT! The special pastas were highlights for sure. Great wine selection, too. What more could you want?

The food was delicious and we never felt rushed. We were a party of ten and the only thing That might have improved our meal was a round table instead of a table that was rectangular. Will definitely come back!

This was a birthday dinner with good friends I had not seen in several years. The food and wine was beyond excellent, and we were allowed to sit and linger and talk as long as we wanted over the wine. It was exactly what I wanted for the night, and I've been telling everyone I know that they should come here.

Zero Otto Nove never disappoints, it is consistently excellent with a great, varied menu. Have been there many times and enjoy the different pastas and especially the eggplant parm! The bar is great, has a good vibe after work, and the drinks are wonderful! You can't go wrong here.

Both this location and the one on Arthur Ave are equally impressive. We are always excited to take someone new to Zero Otto Nove to watch them fall in love with the impeccable service, incredible dishes and wonderful atmosphere. The food is second to none, consistently delicious fresh and innovative.

This is a New York City institution. One of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city! While they are known for their woodfired pastors. They do an excellent pasta and their daily specials are not to be missed!

Amazing food and so inventive! We had the tinfoil pasta and an aubergine starter, both were amazing. The food came out very quickly as well which was a plus! Our waiter was lovely very nice and helpful and the other waiters/waitresses were just as lovely. Really felt looked after there and would definitely reccomend!

The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. I mentioned that the four of us were just having appetizers (our friends were attending a Christmas party in the same restaurant’s party room upstairs and we were meeting them beforehand.). The hostess said she wouldn’t seat us and that appetizers were only served st the bar! So my husband said he was hungry and would order dinner. The four of us, had drinks and appetizers, pizza and our bill was about $200+ and she wasn’t going to seat us!
If the food wasn’t so delicious, I would have given a poor review. Who doesn’t seat a party if 4 in an empty restaurant? I’m sure the servers were happy to get something! I would recommend this restaurant otherwise everything was perfect.

Been wanting to visit this place for a while.. they do have a gluten free pasta option, that is fantastic. They unfortunately do not have a gluten free pizza option, and that is a bit disappointing. Enjoyed the appetizers, the meat and cheese plate, and loved the burrata. The antipasto plate of vegetables was good, not great. (Zucchini and Cauliflower great, Eggplant and Pepper good)
My guest told me that the bread that they give you on the table is delicious.
I will go back because I loved the service, the ambiance and the wine, Montepulciano.. and hopefully by then they will have a gluten free pizza option because they have a beautiful over for the pizza and I would love to be able to try their pizza!
