  • For those craving the fresh ingredients of Naples, but aren't in the mood for Neapolitan pizza’s ultra-puffy crust, Salerno-style pies might be the ideal way to combine cheese, dough, and tomato sauce. Named after Salerno’s area code, and helmed by celebrated chef Roberto Paciullo, Zero Otto Nove is one of the few restaurants in NYC specializing in the southern Italian city’s unique approach to pizza-making. In this continuation of Food Skills’ deep-dive into NYC’s “real” Little Italy in the Bronx, chef Paciullo explains how his Salernitano pizza has become a surprise hit on the corner of Arthur Avenue and East 186th Street. Cooked extra crisp, and topped with Salerno-specific ingredients, like anchovies and capers, the pizza at Zero Otto Nove is both comfortingly familiar and exhilaratingly unique. Pairing ocean flavors with basil and olives, the restaurant’s signature Marinara pie is a must-try for thin-crust pizza lovers everywhere.

    I'll pretty much try a spot if it's owned by a down to earth guy with an accent like this guy. There's a level of chill that just makes you want to sit and have a beer.

    In Naples, you take the pizza, put it on your windowsill for half a minute and it's done.

    I believe he said "everything you cook IN South Italy, there's anchovies". Not "everything you cook INSULTS Italy" haha. I'm sicilian it makes more sense, considering we eat a lot of anchovies. Especially on pizza

    I'm from Salerno and this is absolutely correct. The Salerno style is a lil bit more crispier than the Napoli style.
    Anyway only seeing it, it's a really well made pizza. Trust this man!!!

    I’ve been making woodfired pizza for a little over a year and I live in NYC.Just watching his video has inspired me. Trust me that this style of pizza for me honestly trumps all the rest. It’s crispy, light, and packed with flavor. And it digests very well. Just from watching I suggest everyone take a trip to the Bronx!!
