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.

I had the Diavola pizza with soppresetta, my friend had homemade gnocchi and we shared the shrimp appetizer which was a simple dish, but still amazing.

Attentive service and good ambience makes this a regular on my Italian restaurants rotation.

Restaurant has a cool, sexy vibe. Broad menu and lots of specials. Burrata starter was good, pizza caprese was great. Entrees were all excellent (chicken had a delicious sauce). Service was very nice, and water was constantly refilled, etc - we had to flag down our waiter a few times, but overall a good experience.

Nice atmosphere, several round tables which I love and long tables for big groups, not pretentious, can go casual or more fancy, nice staff and delicious food. Good for families or friends and definitely good for larger groups. Great staple Italian!

Cute place with nice arches to make it feel Mediterranean. Little nooks for more privat dinners as well. Branzino was a little slimy and the "aqua Pazza" tasted more like old clams. The cherry tomatoes were past their due date. Salad was good. Pasta was good but not anything out of the ordinary . the fritto misto at the next table looked great !

delightful lunch for restaurant week at this restaurant we never would have discovered. Well prepared Italian food - enjoyed the first course of eggplant parmejan and a main corse of short ribs. The sauces were delicious, and the portions very hearty. We ordered a simple wine - which was OK... more lower priced options would be good. Nice room, tall ceilings, will definitely come back.

Excellent Italian restaurant with fabulous service. I enjoyed everything I ordered, Shrimp/bean appetizer, Branzino entrée and profiteroles for dessert. I usually don't eat bread but the focaccia in their bread basket was worth every calorie. Good wine and coffee too.

I tried zero otto nove for restaurant week. The restaurant is dimly lit. I had the eggplant and zucchini parmesan, which was better than expected. I also had the branzino, which was phenomenal. I am going to make a trip back just to have that! It was in a sauce with white wine, parsley, garlic, clam sauce and sliced cherry tomatoes. I had the profiteroles for dessert. It was drenched in fudge. I thought it would have ice cream inside, but it was just a custard sauce. I also had the basilica e limone - a nice refreshing martini with vodka, basil, simple syrup, and splash of lemon and pineapple.

We were there for lunch on Friday. We tried a few cocktails and it was good (not consistent when we repeated but good nonetheless). The 3 course lunch for $30 is great value for money. We couldn't finish the entrée and packed it for later and paced out dessert simply coz it was so good. The ambiance was fun, with nice solid wood tables and elegant décor, suited for large groups as well.

Zero Otto Nove has been one of our go-to spots for whenever the mood struck for a quick bite to eat. It’s always busy whenever we visited, but there’s always room for us. We absolutely LOVED their Napolitano pizza with no cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, branzino and pork chops with sweet peppers. Those were the dishes we get constantly. They were THAT good! We could easily order a second pie of the Napolitano. Ugh, so darn delicious! We also enjoyed the spacious setting of this restaurant outfitted with a giant pizza oven in the back. The service had always been consistently good, the staff were always on top of it. We had no complaints, only the highest praises for Zero Otto Nove. Can’t wait to visit again...this month!

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.

We were in the Flatiron area and fancied Italian food and turned up this place via OpenTable. A great find! Ordered pizza and a bottle of Californian pinot noir. Finished off the meal with Tiramisu and limoncello. Thoroughly recommended.

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.
