Zero Otto Nove: Delicious Pasta in an Attractive Rustic Setting PDF Print Email


By Karen Talbot

Jul. 17, 2019:  Zero Otto Nove’s distinctive name stands for a Salerno, Italy, area code. The restaurant is owned by Roberto’s of Arthur Avenue in the Bronx and is at 55 Old Route 22 in Armonk. We recommend using a GPS to get there, as Old Route 22 can sometimes be hard to find, but you won’t be disappointed once you get there.   

Zero Otto Nove excels in serving some of the very best pasta dishes in an attractive rustic setting. It is in a large Tuscan-like barn with high ceilings, crossbeams, pickled walls, a tiled floor, and a wood-burning pizza oven front and center. There is a nice-sized bar to the right as you enter with high top tables to sit at.

Our meal started with good focaccia bread and extra virgin olive oil and was followed by an antipasto choice of parmigiana di melanzane e zucchini with fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce, which proved to be an excellent choice. 

This was followed by two pasta offerings from the executive chef, Roberto Paciullo:  radiatori in cartoccio, which was radiatori pasta cooked in tin foil with porcini mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, breadcrumbs, and shaved parmigiano reggiano. Our second choice was penne con salcicca e provola, which was penne with sausage meat, smoked mozzarella, and cherry tomatoes. Both dishes were cooked to perfection…al dente and absolutely delicious.

We also ordered pollo scarpariello from the carne selections, which was chicken on the bone (dark meat) sautéed with sausage, white wine, lemon juice, and rosemary. This dish was not to our liking; it may have been authentic, but there was hardly any chicken to savor and it seemed to be mostly gristle. 

Zero Otto Nove is also known for its numerous choices of pizza with unique choices such as patate e porcini, which is pizza with fresh mozzarella, sliced potatoes, and porcini mushrooms, and la riccardo, which is pizza with butternut squash purée, smoked mozzarella, spicy pancetta, and basil.

For dessert, we had the most divine sorbetto al limone, one of the pastry chef Ciro Perotta’s many delicious concoctions.

I would like to point out that they are very accommodating with respect to sharing pastas, which may be split as many ways as you want it served.  The waiters are very attentive, and the service excels in every way. 

During peak dining hours, the restaurant can get noisy, so you might want to go on a beautiful summer night when you can eat al fresco on its attractive patio.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
