Doppio Zero San Carlos : Discover Southern Italian Excellence

Experience the essence of Southern Italy right here in Doppio Zero San Carlos

Since its grand opening in June 2023, Doppio Zero has set downtown San Carlos ablaze with its mouthwatering Neapolitan pizzas, earning accolades and exceeding all expectations in record time.

Founded by Italian natives Angelo Sannino and Gianni Chiloiro in 2014, Doppio Zero was born out of a passion for sharing the rich culinary heritage of Southern Italy with the Bay Area.

With Angelo’s expertise as a seasoned pizzaiolo and Gianni’s impressive culinary background, including founding esteemed establishments like Gradimento and Medioevo, the duo embarked on a mission to revolutionize Italian cuisine with fresh, innovative ingredients.

At the heart of Doppio Zero’s success lies its commitment to quality, starting with the name itself. ‘Doppio Zero,’ or double zero, pays homage to the finely ground Italian flour that forms the foundation of their signature dishes.

Specializing in Neapolitan pizza and fresh pastas, Doppio Zero embodies the essence of Italian gastronomy, using only the finest imported ingredients to craft each culinary masterpiece.

The Neapolitan pizza, a true culinary marvel, adheres to strict guidelines set by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, ensuring authenticity in every bite.

From the creamy Mozzarella di Bufala Campana cheese to the vibrant San Marzano tomatoes grown in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, each element is carefully selected to honor tradition and elevate the dining experience.

But it’s not just about the pizza at Doppio Zero. Their menu boasts an array of tantalizing options, from the indulgent Fettuccine short ribs, slow-braised for 24 hours and paired with a Chianti red wine reduction sauce, to the delicate Marechiaro with homemade squid ink tagliolini and jumbo scallops in a light spicy tomato sauce.

And let’s not forget about the libations. Doppio Zero’s talented mixologists, Pedroza Sanchez and Gabriele Lafata, craft an array of artisanal cocktails using freshly squeezed juices and purees, ensuring each sip is a delight for the senses.

Don’t miss the Instagram-worthy Doppio Bourbon, a tantalizing blend of bourbon, lime juice, simple syrup, angostura bitter, passion fruit puree, and a splash of cabernet sauvignon.

But it’s not just about the food and drinks at Doppio Zero. The ambiance is equally captivating, with each dining room offering its own unique charm, from the contemporary elegance of the bar to the vintage-inspired main dining area.

And of course, no visit would be complete without marveling at the hand-made Italian Stefano Ferrara brick oven, adorned with bright blue and white mosaic tiles.

Since its arrival, Doppio Zero San Carlos has been embraced by the community with open arms, drawing praise from locals and visitors alike. As Angelo aptly puts it, ‘There is something special about this place,’ and it’s easy to see why.

Whether you’re craving an authentic Neapolitan pizza or looking to indulge in Southern Italian delicacies, Doppio Zero invites you to savor the flavors of Italy in the heart of downtown San Carlos. Buon appetito!

Came here without a reservation on Thursday night at around 6pm and was able to be seated right away. However it filled up quickly so I’d recommend making a reservation.

Absolutely a gem of a place. Server Marco was very friendly and accommodating for me to switch out the carb in my dish to more veggies.

We had the gem salad and the balance of the dressing was on point and enjoyed the anchovies, which they did not skimp on. Octopus was tender and my sea bass cooked to perfection. I am in love with the sauce it came with, so yummy! My friend raved about her ink squid pasta dish.

Will definitely return.

Also super nice atmosphere — feels warm and modern, with a nice bar to the side and plenty of outdoor seating as well.

I love this restaurant! The service is always excellent, and the staff creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food is consistently delicious, and their menu offers a wide variety of dishes to choose from.

I find myself coming back here multiple times a week because I simply can’t resist. I highly recommend checking it out!

I can’t stress this enough, but I love Doppio and can’t wait to go back!! From the service to the food! It’s definitely a casual laid back vibe that’s perfect to catch up with friends or date night. The menu has great small plates, pizza and pasta. Plus cocktails and wine!

My favorites included the burrata (don’t get me started on the truffle honey drizzle) and la carne pizza. I also really enjoyed the espresso martini (no on the menu). The staff was super attentive and even management checked in. Prices are definitely a little steeper but so so worth it!

Fantastic food, outstanding service, very nice environment, reasonable prices (compared to similar restaurants in the Bay Area). Julia was simply outstanding in taking care of us, monitoring every aspect of our order and making sure everything arrived on time.

For example, this was the first time EVER (in ANY restaurant) that I ordered a glass of wine when my entree arrived, and the wine was on my table after just a few bites – I usually get it at least halfway through my entree, sometimes even later.

Everything we tried was excellent, but for me the fettuccini short ribs was the best, with the margherita pizza a close second (reminded me of some of the best pizzas one can get in New York City). We are definitely going back soon!..
