At Z Cucina di Spirito, you will enter a world of traditional and modern Italian cuisine that also moves with ease into the realm of Mediterranean flavors. The unique and comfortable bar and dining area is warm and inviting.

Z Cucina's menu offers flavorful and well seasoned small plates, salads and main courses. Truly a "scratch kitchen" as we make our own ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, sausage, breads and desserts. Our menu also includes our hand-made ravioli, tortolloni and fresh pastas. The restaurant features a full bar with specialties such as the Pera di Miele, Basil Gin Smash and the Blood Orange Margarita. Also offered is a well crafted, artisan wine list with gems from the various regions of Italy including Tuscany, Piedmont, Apulia and Veneto as well as the countries of Spain, France, Australia and the U.S.

Overpriced pasta, wasn’t even that good for what I paid. Rather go to Olive Garden. Don’t waste your money.

Our experience was amazing. I was so impressed with the staff calling ahead of time to confirm our reservation. The outdoor seating area in the street is incredible and safe. The food and service were amazing. Thank you so much for your attention to detail for safety and enjoyment. Will definitely be back!

The hostesses and the owner, Jackie, greeted us enthusiastically and took us to a table with a beautiful view of the Dublin bridge. We ordered some risotto fritters as an appetizer, and they were incredible! My two guests ordered the lasagna bolognese and I ordered the Italian sausage tortelli. No one in my group is of legal drinking age, but we were treated with the same amount of attentiveness and respect as someone would receive if they were able to order some wine or cocktails to compliment the meal, unlike some previous dining experiences I have had at other restaurants. 10/10 recommend! I made a reservation and they were grateful that we did especially on a friday night.

I cannot express the quality and flavor of the food that Z Cucina makes on a daily basis. From the homemade bread and sun dried tomato oil to the fresh fish and local produce pairings to Meatball Monday’s, there is no better food in all of Bridge Park!

We always enjoy Z Cucina but it's especially nice to have the open air street seating. Shady and comfortable on an otherwise hot summer day, plenty of space between tables and protocols being followed. Our service was excellent and the food was delicious! We will be back!

From the fresh baked bread and evoo with sun dried tomatoes, Z Cucina makes you feel as though you’re eating at your favorite relatives home. The owner always has a smile to greet you and the staff is equally as helpful and kind. I feel that their specials really shine and it’s one of the only places I’ll eat fish in Columbus!

Great to be out at ZCucina! Felt very comfortable with their safety concerns, many different seating options all socially distanced. The service was excellent, salmon special was very good, my husband had the mussels and said they were good. Will definitely go back, really love helping our local restaurants and they were so appreciative!

I met my family here to celebrate a late father’s day and it was a wonderful experience. The owner came to our table and chatted with us and the staff was all very helpful and went above and beyond to follow the new guidelines. We ate inside and it was a great ambiance. Definitely try the calamari and arancini appetizers. Extensive drink list and the desserts are all made in house and delicious. If we are in town again we will stop in!

Z cucina in Dublin has always proved to be a good dining experience for us. They now have extended outdoor seating in the street in front of their restaurant and the through traffic is closed off. The buildings on both side of Longshore Street serve as shade and a wind tunnel. It was delightful sitting out there with a gentle breeze and much social distancing.

They are reopening with health and safety measures in place for COVID-19, you download their menu easily from your phone. The staff wears masks. I’d recommend going here if you’re ready to be out again.

Food: 3/5 It’s overall very pleasing to the taste buds. Their bread and oils are always phenomenal. The risotto was overcooked but it had excellent flavors. The gelato was over-churned and gritty. The chocolate mousse was delicious and not too sweet or heavy - would go great with coffee.

Service was quick and pleasant. They weren’t busy when we went. We drank a lot of water and the serving assistant was on top of it! Thank you!

Z Cucina never disappoints! Cocktails, appetizers and entrees hit the mark every time. Service is impeccable - definitely a local business we want to thrive through the pandemic. Safety precautions were clear (all staff in masks, distanced tables, no bar seating for now) and I was happy to have my first post-quarantine restaurant experience at Z Cucina!

White Table Clothes. Paper on top, due to virus precautions, but can deal with that. Food was excellent, as was the food. Wife and I both had chicken parm. Everything we had been told. Couldn't finish it all. Wine was fairly priced with a good selection. Out and indoor seating available. Recommend it HIGHLY.
