About Double Zero
Our ancestors, and many others like them, made the pilgrimage from southern Italy to Ellis Island. These immigrants hit the streets of NYC with a ripe attitude and a culture deeply rooted in food. Their entrepreneurial spirit spawned many businesses as Italian-Americans infiltrated the neighborhoods surrounding Mulberry Street and much of the Lower East Side of Manhattan. This new home was rich in Neapolitan ties; however, a uniquely American identity was taking form as they embraced their status as first generation Italian-Americans.
Now generations removed from that first journey across the Atlantic, we aim to update the concept of an Italian-American restaurant. The sourcing of our ingredients, our techniques, and the design of our space is modern, but we take inspiration from the tenacity, originality, and hustle of our ancestors — and of course, their damn delicious food. We hope that those who came before us would be proud of this effort.

Double Zero Ratings and Reviews

The food and service were both excellent , but the menu was very meat heavy with all the choices somewhat fatty. There were no lighter options such as vegetables or salads. What was served was very well done but my wife and one of my daughters won't return unless the menu broadens.

Having been to the Double Zero in Sandy Springs, I was hoping for a more Italian style menu with an abundance of pizza and pasta options. This menu, while quite shareable and interesting, did not appeal to me as much. I feel I can get small plates of dips and veggies at several Atlanta restaurants. I wanted a more authentic Italian experience.

Located in the heart of Emory Village, Double Zero features small Italian plates, somewhat similar to the concept of the highly-regarded Iberian Pig in downtown Decatur. Everything we've tried there has been exceptional.

While the food was good, we would never return because of the noise level. You just could not talk at all to the people at your table. Also, they have a problem with handicapped access. Our friend is in a wheelchair and had a terrible time getting into the restaurant. The manager sent us an appetizer to make up for the inconvenience but that did not erase the feeling that handicapped access was not considered.

Been waiting with great interest for this restaurant to open up in the former original Jaggers location. Again, I think that this new restaurant is missing the sweet spot for Emory Village just like Ink and Elm, the prior restaurant in the same location. The prices are quite high for this location crawling with college students. $19 for a Smoked Brisket Pizza which had a very scarce amount of brisket and was not that tasty. The cauliflower app was a very small portion and was bland and a bit greasy tasting. The grilled kale salad was a very nice but small salad. Bottom line... $10 avg apps, $14/up tapas and &19 small/not even medium pizzas is going to be a tough sell in The Village.
Was hoping for a Pub or Sports Bar with quality food and many beer taps, nightly specials to give us all a reason to make this our neighborhood joint.

I went to Double Zero for a work dinner. The location was convenient. We have several small plates and a pizza. All were quite good. The wine list is OK, but is a bit of a weak spot. Everything we ordered was good, but the pulpo and the pizza stood out.

Excellent new addition to Emory Village; the team from Decatur's Iberian Pig opened this wonderful restaurant in the beautiful space previously owned by Ink and Elm. It is really good and very nice. Works for a quick casual bite after work or a really nice dinner at a slow pace. Many outstanding small plates.

This was our first visit to Double Zero. I have to say we will definitely be back. We had a number of their small plates for dinner, and everything was tasty and nicely seasoned, very flavorful. Service was great too.

This restaurant just opened in the Emory Village location, where Ink & Elm used to be. They have done a beautiful job with the space. Don't let the Italian/Pizza/Pasta deter you from eating here. It really is more of Italian Tapas and they were really delicious. The menu had a lot of variety. I was pleased to see a good number of vegetable tapas, as well as some interesting meat and seafood tapas (such as oxtail and octopus). There were interesting cocktails as well. Recommended!

Since they had only been open for a few days, we expected glitches - but there were none! Double zero has great energy, lovely service and outstanding food. Don't miss the arancini with smoked brisket! Service was attentive and friendly. This a great new addition to the Emory/Druid Hills neighborhood and we plan to return often.

We went to Double Zero on recommendation from our waitress Jenny at Cooks and Soldiers. We were not disappointed with the food at all apart from you don't do gluten free pizzas!! It was explained to us by our server that all the dishes were to share so because I am gluten intolerant Mark and I decided to have the same dish thinking that we were going to get a large bowl of the pigs cheek ragu. Of course we didn't and ended up having the same dish each, which by the way was gorgeous. We both felt that the style of dining was not explained to us fully, the phrase used was "all dishes are designed to be shared". Rightly or wrongly we thought we were going to get one large bowl of food. In our view, as an Italian restaurant there should also be black pepper to hand and Parmesan cheese. We had to ask and wait while it was brought to us. This has by no means put us off your restaurant and we will definitely return considering the gluten free options available. This could also just be teething problems as we know you have only just opened. We both wish you much success in this new venture and will see you in October.

We had been to the original location in Sandy Springs. This reboot has a brighter, friendlier decor and a great menu, something for everyone. Prices were fair.
Considering the fact that it had only been open for 4 days, service was fine....professional and friendly. We will be back.

Delicious in so many ways!
I've had the starter bread basket, 3/3 cheese and charcuterie platter, Farnese wine and Double Zero Napoletana pizza - now called the MPO pizza or something like that. In subsequent visits I couldn't bring myself to order anything else. The namesake pizza is just fantastic - though I prefer the old guard variant over the new (changed as they moved to Emory). I've ordered the same type of pizza in Italy (when I established it as my preference) and must say that this place justifies the creation. The Farnese also pairs nicely (note, much better with some air).
Also worth noting are the finely crafted cocktails. The crew has always done a great job behind the bar with specialty drinks and traditional favorites. Time will tell if the new expanded group can carry on the reputation. I highly recommend the barrel aged cocktails as they have them available. They are all exemplary examples of perfect mixology and deserve nothing short of respect and enjoyment. And my new favorite menu drink is The Architect - give it a whirl if the ingredients are up your ally.
Aside from the excellent food, the decor/ambiance is great. Staff is equally wonderful and friendly.
Note that Double Zero Napoletana is only open for dinner 5pm+

We went to Double Zero on the 3rd night they were open. We were seated immediately upon arrival, and the hostesses were friendly. Wait staff was friendly helpful and efficient. The menu is largely an Italian take on tapas. Inventive and flavorful food. We ordered several "small plates" as well as one pasta and a pizza. I personally thought the smoky brisket risotto balls ("arancini") were too smoky and ate only one, but the others were eaten gladly by the other meat-eater at the table. 2 things we didn't care for:
1. Noise level was way too loud. Restaurant should invest in sound reducing tiles or something like that to absorb the noise.
2. Hostesses and wait staff were very obviously checking our table frequently. Not sure if it was just to pick up used plates or to determine how close we were to finishing so they could turn our table. Whatever the case, they were very obvious and it made us uncomfortable. Hopefully, this was just a new-staff-in-training glitch that will ease away with experience.

What a great find in the Emory Village neighborhood! This is truly a fine dining (yet fun!) experience for the Druid Hills/Virginia Highlands homeowners. The wait staff are extremely knowledgeable and enjoyed talking about the dishes as much as we enjoyed eating them! The choices are varied, so if you can't make up your mind - ask your waiter - they will steer you right! Four small plates, plus one large entree or one pizza is perfect for a party of 4.

The move has been seemless and they have added to their reputation for innovation and creating dishes that appeal to the discriminating palate. Great service and the owners show sincere devotion to the satisfaction of their customers.

Great experience on opening night. We went very early when it was quiet. They made accommodations by eliminating some sugary ingredients in the food & drink. Funghi pizza was delicious. More vegetarian options always appreciated.

Double Zero is a main stay regarding dining for friends and family from out of town. The food is always great and the service is hard to beat. This occasion was for a double birthday celebration and the birthday girls had a wonderful time. As always, highly recommended!!

Double Zero is always reliable, always good to very good, and at times excellent. Tonight it was excellent. The burrata dish was wonderful, fresh cheese, fantastic beet pesto, etc. We then shared a pizza, which is always consistently excellent at Double Zero. Next we shared the smoked lamb carbonara, which was fabulous - rich and delicious, great pasta and wonderful lamb ragu. Federico Castellucci (father) is the proverbial restaurateur - he is caring, shows concern and exceptionally charming. We will miss Double Zero when it leaves Sandy Springs (the most restaurant-deprived area of Atlanta, read: good restaurant).

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The drinks are amazing and the service is great and the wait staff is very knowledgeable of the menu. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Big fan of this place - it was my first time here. The power was out due to some local storms, but things were handled expertly. All of the food was available and the staff used candles to light everything up. I would definitely come back!
