Roberto Paciullo's hometown of Salerno is transported to Armonk. Zero Otto Nove is the third outpost of his famous restaurants from Arthur Ave and NYC. 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 pastas are homemade, and all ingredients are brought in from New York's Real Little Italy, Arthur Avenue.

We were at the restaurant an hour and they asked us to move to a different table because they needed to accommodate a party of 10. We had completed our meal but we’re going to have desert so we accommodated the request begrudgingly. So we had desert and coffee and they came over and asked us to move again because they had 300 reservations (like our reservation did not count). They asked us to go the bar and have desert and drink. Not realizing we had desert already. We got irate and the boss came over and told us we did not have to move. What a horrible way to treat people on Mother’s Day. ( this is one I will never forget). I made this reservation 1 month ago when I realized I was going to be in NY and wanted a very special Mother’s Day well it was special because of very rude staff and manager.

The food was excellent but it was ridiculously loud. I went at 8pm on a Friday night. My sister and I were meeting up with cousins we hadn’t seen in years and it was difficult trying to catch up when we were practically having to scream to hear each other. The wait staff could be more attentive...especially at the end of the meal when there were only two tables left in the dining room and the waitstaff was nowhere to be found. Ossobucco special wasn’t as tender as it should have been, but we all enjoyed our meals.

I hate going out for dinner on Sunday night but these friends really wanted to go out. I was so pleasantly surprised by the “chill” ambiance, fantastic menu and even better, excellent eggplant parmigiana!! My favorite food.

Popular restaurant even at 6:30 PM with what looked to be a full house. Excellent menu with a lengthy list of specials. All four in our party loved their meals and the portions were so generous that we had "take home". Our server was excellent

Food and service were, as always, excellent. Soft shell crabs terrific and pastat specials are always outstanding. The only drawback is the noise level which makes it hard to have a conversation if you are seated in the middle of the room. Tables on the outside edge are quieter.

Hi,
This was the first time at your Armonk Restaurant. I usually go to your Arthur Avenue Restaurant which I love and prefer.
Your Armonk Restaurant has NO ambiance. Nothing that would say that I was in an Italian Restaurant.
We happened to go to Armonk because of Restaurant Week so the food was adequate at best.
My entree was not hot and you served the 3 courses too fast. We were out of there in less than an hour.
I would not come back to Armonk. If I go to your restaurant, I'll stop my Arthur Avenue.
Thank you.

It must have been trainee night in the kitchen. Seafood appetizer arrived with overcooked calamari and overcooked shrimp. Veal main course contained tough slabs of veal - sliced to be thin, rather than pounded thin - coved by a thick, rubbery slab of lukewarm cheese lying in a bland overly sweet alleged port wine sauce. The dessert profiteroles had their ice cream innards melted some time between preparation and delivery.
Sorry folks. None of these dishes should have left the kitchen.

First timer. I wish I could give it a 3 1/2 star! I Started with LaCirillo pizza which had butternut squash purée mushrooms and truffle. It was DELICIOUS! One of the best pizzas I've ever had. Also ordered an eggplant and zucchini parmigiana which was sweet and tasty. I was very excited to taste their pasta bolognese which was one of their specials. It arrived in a foil pouch. It was described by the waiter as having pork and beef so I was expecting a thick sauce. It was very disappointing. It tasted like regular pasta, and you could hardly see any meat in the sauce, mostly carrots. Not what typical Bolognese looks like. After having the pasta Bolognese, I was craving meat since there really wasn't any, so I ordered meatballs. Those were good, served in a bowl of sauce as requested. I loved everything, except the pasta, hence the 3 stars. The chicken scarpariello that was at the table next to me looked great. I wished I had ordered that. Next time I will!

Our dinner with friends this past Wednesday was marred by inattentive and dismissive service and improperly prepared dishes. Our waiter seemed rushed and annoyed when we asked him to slow down and repeat the long list of "specials". We were not interested in the Restaurant Week menu and chose from the a la carte offerings. The steak with eggplant and sweet pepper topping was served without the peppers and eggplant. When we finally got our waiter's attention, he at first argued that this was not the case, but after demonstrating the lack of these items he said that he would get some from the kitchen! Fifteen minutes later they showed up and of course were not involved in the preparation of the dish. My rigatoni with meatballs and prosciutto was overcooked. Our eggplant and zucchini appetizer was excellent. We asked to speak with the manager who apologized and offered us complimentary desserts, which was appreciated. However, this restaurant was half empty and the food served was not up to the relatively high prices charged. We cannot recommend Zero Otto Nove until the management takes their food preparation and service to their customers seriously.

Out otherwise delicious meal was spoiled by our surly waiter who chose to argue with us rather than replace a dish of vegetables that didn’t arrive at our table as described in the menu. Most of the wait staff was gathered in a bunch and talking and ignoring the customers and we had to interrupt their conversation when we had an issue. Wake up management. This is no way to run a restaurant.

We've dined here as a couple, and with friends. It's much quieter during the week, quite loud the Fri night we dined with another couple. The food is terrific, high quality, interesting choices, and very well prepared. Portions are generous. The bartender makes great cocktails. On both occasions we found the service attentive and timely: water glasses were kept filled, utensils replaced as needed, extra plates provided for seafood shells, or for sharing. This last time, both couples opted to share salads, and our servers provided separate plates and apportioned the servings out for each diner. I particularly enjoyed the risotto pescatore on my latest visit. My friend was delighted with her orrechiette with broccoli rapa. The veal shank special was a hit with another of our party. And we highly recommend the side of escarole with capers and anchovies. We also love the Italian cheesecake-type dessert pastry… light, flaky, delicious. Will definitely keep returning.

My wife and I love coming here for the food. The Radiatori pasta in tin foil remains a must try. So is the Octopus, super tender and flavorful which most places do’t manage to accomplish. Worth the 45 min drive.

1. We were given someone elses appetizers
2. We ordered a bottle of red wine which was the cheapest wine on the menus and was told that there were only 2 bottles left
3. We ordered the special Veal Osso Buco and was told you had no more!!!!
4.The entrees had no vegetable or potato with it
I never left a negative review in my life but for the prices you charge I would expect some sort of standard when anyone goes out to eat.

My overall experience was very good and the food was excellent! My only complaint is that the wait staff is very aggressive with getting you to order and interrupting conversations when they can clearly see that our menus were still open. We felt pressured to order dessert ASAP because 3 people asked us within 5 minutes of each other for our order. It was 10pm and there were a bunch of open tables and tables still hanging around drinking wine, eating and talking. It was annoying to our group to continually get interrupted when we were all trying to catch up we felt rushed.

Been here a handful of times in the past, always excellent food and service. Came here last night for Valentine’s Day, made a reservation a week in advance. They sat us by the kitchen and bathroom, and the tables for two “just for Valentine’s Day” were pretty much designed for a 5 year old. It was almost impossible to fit our meals and drinks on the same table plus their center pieces. I expected a bit more but oh well.
