Zero Otto Nove - Arthur Ave.

Ate at Zero Otto Nove with my family today after a visit to the Bronx Zoo. We all loved it! The pizza was delicious, and an appetizer of stewed octopus was memorable with one of the best sauces I have had in years. Everyone enjoyed their entree - a veal, fava bean and mushroom dish for me, a bracciole special for my husband, pork chops for one daughter, and risotto for my other daughter. For dessert, we shared a wonderful chocolate cake with gelato.

We've had some disappointing meals on Arthur Ave in the past, but we will definitely be back to eat here again. Glad I read about it on this board.

    One of my favorite places and my favorite on Arthur Avenue. We love the the salernitano appetizer platter. Never a disapointment at this place!

      we ate at Zero Otto Nove after starting our meal at their sister restaurant Robertos- and both sides of the equation were fantastic. we only had room for two pizzas both were excellent. \Would go back in a heartbeat and would take folks there for neopolitan pizza. better than naples the city and michels there in my opinion

        I didn't see any pizzas on their menu that didn't have tomatoes or meat--I'm looking for a vegetarian white pizza...would they be open to customizing one for me?

          When I went to Zero Otto Nove last summer I was blown away by La Riccardo pizza: butternut squash puree, smoked mozzerella, pancetta, and basil. They'd probably do it for you without the pancetta, and I bet it would still be wonderful.

      Fiance (Danielle) , baby, and I ate here today... fantastic! Short trip from the Botanical Gardens where we went for the Orchid show (crowded but a beautiful day to be outside). Very child friendly. I had rigatoni with mushrooms and meatballs and Danielle had the soft shell crabs. Both were specials and fantastic. Guy behind us had pork chops that looked delicious. Nobody seemed to mind when Danielle nursed the baby. Will definitely go back when we visit the Zoo or the Train Show at Christmas. Want to try the pizza!
