About Double Zero
Atlanta, GA 30307
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
We went for a birthday celebration on Saturday evening. Purposefully went to the bar ahead of our reservation to enjoy a few sips before dining. The atmosphere is good, a bit loud at times, good room to stand while others sit in your group. We had a challenge with the bartender, as she never smiled and just did not seem to want to be there. A bit snippy when we finally got here attention, she did not know about any of the tequilas on the list and was wrong with one of the drinks - could have been a bad night for her? Once we were seated we were well taken care of and enjoyed the variety of yummy stuff from the kitchen.
Double Zero is authentic pizza with a fine dining touch. We had the pork and pear pizza, which was delicious. We also shared the arancini and broccoli. The arancini was an explosion of flavor, and I really enjoyed how the peppers and cheese complemented the broccoli dish. All things considered, the value was very good for the quality of food. Next time I will be trying one of their unique cocktails.
Everything about Double Zero (atmosphere, service, cocktails, and food), was wonderful. Our waitress, Maya, was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and help us narrow down our choices. The food and drinks were delicious and despite the longer drive to get there (we live in Marietta), we will definitely be going back. Also, get the arancini...they are incredible!
Double Zero is halfway between our house and the Emory Schwartz Center, where Renee Fleming was going to perform. So, dining there made sense. This was our initial visit and we were not greatly impressed. 00 is cavernous and LOUD, the remnant of the departed Ink and Elm. Calling itself a "Modern Italian-American Restaurant" is a stretch. As my wife pointed out from reading the menu, 00 is a tapas bar with two easily assembled dishes: pasta and pizza. And compared to the tapas bars we've visited recently, the listing is daunting (it's kinda an "eat your vegetable" listing) that takes real scouring to come up with a few items that might be palatable. The arancini were good.
The wines are decent and, understandably, available by the glass.
We might go back the next time Renee returns...
Although they offer some pasta and pizza dishes, the focus is tapas. Their list is long and varied, everything sounds great, and the 5 dishes we tried were all outstanding. Waitress' descriptions and recommendations were very good. Can't wait to return and sample more of the menu!
We loved Double Zero - big fans of tapas places in general, but the Italian take surprised us and blew us away. We loved the cauliflower, oxtail, a foccacia bread/mushroom dish, and the best of the evening was the orecchiete dish. Our waiter made a great wine recommendation, was on top of our order and staged it perfectly. We'll be back for sure.
We keep coming back to this place because the entire staff works together to take care of you. They greet you warmly and remember previous orders and preferences. Every time we come here we feel as if we are the only ones in the restaurant, and, unlike other restaurants, the service doesn't suffer once they get busy. We were there 1/21 for dinner and our server was John Harmon. He was wonderful!!! Exceptional service with a great personality, serving great food! What more do you want? Their pizza is what we go for, but all their offerings are creative. They care about giving you a wonderful dining experience,
This is my second visit; first was within a week of their opening. This experience was much better, much more polished service all around. Downside was that they were out of ingredients for one of the nightly specials - a pizza. If they hadn't been out of that, I might have given them an overall rating of 5 stars. Hostesses were friendly, waiter was attentive (although slow with refills of iced tea). Food was really good. I took a friend who hadn't been here before and she loved the food and said she'd go back. We sat at a table at the window in the room to the left at the entrance. The room and tables on the right side of the entrance seemed to be very loud - glad we weren't sitting over there.
With my great appreciation for the Iberian Pig, I expected Double Zero to be somewhere near a nice of a all around dining experience. Not quite.
The food was good, but not notable. The most interesting and creative things on the menu were the cocktails.
The area where Double Zero truly fell short was the service. Having to flag the waiter down multiple times to remind him that we had ordered something and were still waiting for it. This was especially aggravating when I was brought a drink I ordered, but my lady friend still hadn't received her wine that she ordered before I had arrived.
The biggest problem; Before ordering our initial plates, the longest exchange the waiter afforded us was about a dinner special we asked about. He seemed to actually pay attention and discuss how amazing it was. I commented that I had to try it but my lady friend had not yet decided on her main dish, so I told the waiter I would wait. When the time came to order our next round of plates, the special was sold out. The waiter never thought to come by and let us know it the supply was getting low. To make matters worse, he commented that he should have mentioned to us that the dish was running low when we were discussing it earlier. Ugh.
Not to mention they had run out of the special by 8:30pm. Not very good planning for a dish described as "Our most popular menu item."
The pizza was great, thin crust perfectly cooked. The small plates are definitely small, we ordered the meatballs and was a little disappointed in the presentation of them. Just four meatballs in a bowl that's it. That being said, our waiter was fabulous, great attention!
Spacey and casual place, good for friends gethering. Foods were good, but not special. Little salty overall. besides pizza, all dishes are tapas size. It is fun sharing foods and cutting pizza with scissors.
After you park, you will have to walk a little. not great for handicap access.
great atmosphere at bar area.
Food is good but massively over priced and we made the mistake of going for an early dinner which meant lots of crying children and children on their devices (at full volume) after listening to candy crush at full volume I brought it to the attention of the staff (not sure how they did not hear it) to their credit they did ask the family to turn the volume down. I take issue with the pricing on some dishes, $15 for two scallops. That is not a lot of scallop for the price, whereas the pork belly risotto is excellent at $9 but the salads are likewise overpriced, a few pieces of arugula, some shaved Parmesan and nuts for $8 (it's a tiny bowl) and pizzas at around $19 plus toppings. For Atlanta, it's over priced even compared to sister restaurant cooks and soldiers where you get more value and "bang" for the buck
This is a great find! We struggled to decide where to eat, but this was the right spot. Trey, our server, recommended some awesome cocktails (I recommend the Bitter Ginger) and great food. We had several items and they were all very good. Three things stood out: kale salad, scallops, and ricotta cheesecake.
The scallops were plump, buttery, and perfectly cooked. The flavors in the scallop dish were worthy of Michelin star restaurant. It was truly an exceptional experience.
The ricotta cheesecake was on special, but I would recommend that the pastry chef put this on the menu permanently. This cheesecake was phenomenal. After we ate every single bit of it, we decided that it tasted like a tender post-coital head scratch feels -- intimate, sweet, light, personal, and perfect. Just wow.
Have eaten here numerous times before they moved to emory and have always enjoyed it. Eating here the other night, it seemed to be a shadow of what it once was. Maybe just a bad night for them. We ordered the octopus, the burrata, and 2 of their pizzas.
Both the octopus and burrata worked and we're well conceived and prepared, but they were lacking in salt to the extent that they fell flat. No shakers on the table means it shouldnt be bland. Taste your food. Finishing salt would have helped a lot.
The burrata only came with one slice of bread cut in half, which was barely enough for half of the dish. We had to ask for more.
The pizzas were soggy. Blistered appropriately on the top but mostly white and soft on bottom. Not sure how that would have happened, but it lacked the crisp crust they've had in past. Maybe everything got fired at once instead of being coursed like we asked for and it sat too long.
Aside from food being disappointing, service seemed rushed. It was nye, but reservation was at 9pm and it wasn't that crowded. Maybe she just didn't want to be working, but it just seemed like she didn't want to be there. We didn't get dessert menus offered. It was my friends birthday, and they just dropped off some dessert fritters with a candle, which was nice, but not good at all. Too soft, just unpleasant. I would have liked more options, as she wanted cake. Really disappointed us, as we've both loved double zero in past.
We had a family celebration with 3 families for a very special birthday! Kids ranged in age from 7 to 17 and all enjoyed the menu. The adults especially enjoyed the food and wine. The open kitchen was fun to watch and the pizza ovens have inspired a kitchen remodel!
We were regulars at the Sandy Springs location of Double Zero. Obviously, very disappointed when they relocated the restaurant to Decatur. For my husband's birthday, he was craving one of the dishes he always got at the old location. We decided to drive over to the new location expecting the menu to be somewhat the same. Unfortunately, the whole concept had changed. It is now more like a casual pizza restaurant with small plates. None of our pasta favorites were on the current menu. The kale and arugula salads were good (but small). My husband ordered a pizza similar to a Margarita pizza but with thicker crust (which was charred on the edges). He also ordered the meatballs which were small (4 meatballs) but tasty with an excellent sauce. My daughter had the cheese and meat platter which was very good. Not worth the drive for us from Sandy Springs.
Everything about this restaurant was on point. Modern ambiance, friendly and professional staff and great food. I must commend our waitress she ensured we understood every aspect of the menu and made great suggestions. I'd highly recommend Double Zero. 10 stars.
Ww really enjoyed dining at Double Zero at Emory the other night. We especially were pleased with the meatballs, and the pizza. This was our first time at this location, and we will bring friends next time.
I enjoyed watching the gentleman bring in wheel barrows of fire wood for the wood fired ovens.
He really knows how to keep the wood fired ovens going on a consistent basis.
We got the grilled kale salad, artichoke al forno, cauliflower, clams, octopus, oxtail, and a kids pizza for 2 adults and 2 kids. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The app/tapa portion size is perfect - not too big, not too small. Tapas sizes allows you to try different dishes. I avoid many carbs (bread, potatoes, starches) and the menu has so much variety that it's very easy to find plenty of foods to enjoy. the Service is very attentive. Can't think of a single negative thing!
