About Trattoria Zero Otto Nove
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.

Trattoria Zero Otto Nove Ratings and Reviews
Ordered the salmon. Burned on the outside and raw on the inside. Sent it back and asked for another salmon dish. Brought back the second salmon the same way again. Burned on the outside and raw inside. Then ordered the pasta. When the bill came I wasn’t compensated at all even though I had to wait close to an hour to get a proper meal. I dined here many times. This was my last.
Usually, I love this place. They have great pasta specials and the food is excellent. This time, YUCK! There were hardly any specials and they all were a different variation of basically the same thing and the food was NOT GOOD AT ALL. I don't know if it was just an off night or this place has really gone down hill.
The restaurant is pretty. We went early on a Thursday night. Not very crowded but filled up quickly. The big complaint with my food was it was way too salty. The father bean dish for an appetizer, and then the artichoke ravioli. Way too salty, almost in edible. The service was great, I would try it again but have different food.
Found this place on OpenTable during a recent business trip to NY. Took my wife for her birthday. We split an arugula salad, the radiatore pasta and the skirt steak salernese. The radiatore is prepared in a tomato sauce with mushrooms and cheese and is served in a cool tin foil tent which the server cuts open and then serves. The pasta was out of this world. The skirt steak was ok nothing special. Bread was delicious. Salad was good but nothing unique. For dessert we split the double chocolate cake which will be different than you think. A bit too rich for me but for chocolate lovers you'll enjoy. Nice wine list with plenty of offerings from Italy. Service was attentive. Overall it was very good and reasonably priced for NY. The radiatore pasta in the foil tent is reason alone to dine here. 4 and 1/2 stars.
The menu is varied with many authentic Italian dishes not typically found in all Italian restaurants. My friend and I went for lunch and shared the escarole appetizer and the meatball with polenta appetizer, then a Margherita pizza. all delicious. The wait staff was wonderful, accommodating, friendly and attentive. A definite place to return to!
I was introduced to this restaurant by friends and came back with my husband and another couple on a Friday night. The food was excellent & I like that they don't crowd the tables so you have room to move. while the restaurant was noisy due to several large parties, we could still hear each other. They sat us at our reserved time and the cost was reasonable.
I reserved a table for my friend’s birthday. Although the food and service were good my only complaint is the table we were given. Tucked away towards the right hand side of the bar, right next to an employee closet/ room (for lack of better words). Since we were sitting next to a window, we were both freezing as it was a cold night. We could barely see the rest of the restaurant to enjoy the ambiance because the bar and employee station were in our way. Every 10 minutes the employees would go in and out of the back room which was literally 5 feet away from my back; I don’t blame the employees for the nuisance but the genius who thought sitting ppl for dinner at the bar area was a good idea. As a matter of fact, maybe think about replacing the tables in the bar area with bar tables where ppl can enjoy small plates and drinks. I’m sorry but for the price point and the occasion, I expected a decent table. We had two different servers as well. Usually not a problem for me as long as the service stays consistent but not being aware of the change further agitated my mood. I felt like ppl could care less about our experience.
We were a party of 6, not all arriving at once. Had an early dinner reservation so the staff was very accommodating. Service was excellent. All enjoyed their entree. Highlights were the linguini with clams!!!!, pasta with sausage!!!! skirt steak and baked rigatoni. All tasted of fresh ingredients. Pizza special was excellent. All look forward to the next meal there!
A group of 8 family members meeting up for dinner. The service and food were excellent. We enjoyed the apps that our server recommended (meatballs with polenta and burrata salad).
I shared a pizza with my brother and we both also had the arugula salad -- perfect amount of food and it was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals!
The food itself was solid, with generous portions. It did not help however that they set up our table in the middle of a main walkway, with servers bumping into our chairs without so much as an excuse me all throughout our meal. The pinnacle was when they asked us to stand up and move out of the way to carry a table over our table. They did say excuse me this time... Would go back for the good, but the service could be better.
We eat here every time we visit NYC. Had a 9:15 reservation to eat after a BB game & had the whole place to our party of 8. We were surprised that it was empty but attributed it to a late, rainy Sunday evening. Food, wine & service were awesome as always. Definitely a must if you like great Italian food & good service.
