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.

Food was very average, disappointing as this restaurant is on my street. Major bummer were the profiteroles which were basically cream puffs with chocolate syrup...NO ICE CREAM.

We have loved Roberto's since it first opened and were thrilled to add Trattoria Zero Otto Nove on Arthur Avenue, FlatIron and in Armonk to our repertoire. Chef Roberto Paciullo is a master of truly great Italian food!

Everything was great, however I have to say, I went there specifically for their Truffle Alfredo dish and it was not worth $40. I was expecting more flavor in that dish and it was really disappointing.

Great atmosphere - similar to the Arthur Ave location but a little fancier and more hip for the Manhattan crowd. Food was excellent and the service was friendly and very accomodating. Would definitely return!

The food is fresh and delicious and service is amazing. Friendly and appreciative towards their customers. We dine here casually but last took friends for a birthday celebration and they totally enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere and service bring me back to the hospitality and charm of southern Italy. An authentic experience. Highly recommend.

A cozy atmosphere reminiscent of an Italian piazza, very attentive service and an interesting menu of pizzas, pastas, salads and entrees. The quality of the food is excellent, and the service level is high, which makes this a good spot for a high-end-casual business meal, or taking visitors from out of town. It feels like an "authentic" Italian experience.

I was able to make a reservation for seven at 7 pm just a few days in advance. Sometimes you worry that if a restaurant has availability, it might not be good. This is not the case with Zero Otto Nove. There’s something for everyone on this big menu. The server proficiently shared a dozen plus specials without notes. The lamb special was a highlight as was the pasta with broccoli rabe. It’s not inexpensive but reasonable for NYC. Portions were generous. We were seated by the kitchen but we still weren’t disrupted.

As ever Zero Otto Nove is just as good at providing excellent Italian cuisine as it’s sister restaurant in Arthur Avenue. Noise rating is only high as we ate their in Valentines Day and as expected it’s was busy with like minded couples. Will visit again without a doubt.

Tried this restaurant during restaurant week and liked it so much that I cancelled a Valentine’s Day reservation at another restaurant and made it for here. Was even better the second time. I eat out several times a week and am probably a bit jaded about it. This restaurant does everything correctly. Table spacing is good. Atmosphere is fine. Service and attention were on point. Cocktails came from the bar with hardly a wait. Food is delicious and served hot. It’s rare that everything works for me. My partner agrees wholeheartedly. We had an altogether terrific dinner.

Overall great experience. Food was great and service was phenomenal. Only thing to note was that after we ordered, our food was out within 10 minutes. Seemed to be too fast for a restaurant of this caliber. It was Valentine’s Day though, so potentially they had already made a lot of their most popular items ahead of time?

Seriously-I ate at the Bronx version on Arthur Ave.It was quite good. I should have known from the minute I entered with friends. Restaurant was EMPTY. This was MY recommendation. The restaurant is attractive enough. The price fixed restaurant week lunch offered only two courses. They were mediocre at best. I will need return. georgic's of Gramercy Park much better choice!!

Great table. Excellent red sauce joint - on par with best in the city. Great menu with all the staples and some interesting twists on things. All the food was outstanding, from the apps, to the pizzas to the main courses. All just great if you’re looking for the classics in a nice, unpretentious ambiance.

Went here for restaurant week. I was immediately seated with a reservation. Very nice looking restaurant though lighting was quite dim, especially where I sat. Food was decent portions and delicious. Wide variety of options for Rest Week menu. Probably one of the best cappuccinos I’ve ever had as well in the city.

We first discovered Trattoria 089 on Arthur Avenue, when the hearty, delicious food at Roberto's and other restaurants on the street had us looking for lighter fare alternatives. We love the decor of Trattoria 089 and enjoy every dish served. So nice to find out we can visit your NYC place instead of driving up to the Bronx for lunch and dinner.
