Was seated 35 minutes after my reservation time. At one point I went up to the hostess to figure out how much longer it would be & was told I was next - then watched as 3 other groups were seated. We were a minute away from leaving when we were finally seated

Clam dish is right from Italy, traveled extensively all over Europe and this restaurant feels European and the staff go out of there way to accommodate you. This restaurant has established a new benchmark in Dublin for quality. We will be back often and I will make my reservation now for the Memorial weekend so I know I can have a table.

The sweet potato gnocchi is fantastic! I always love going to the grandview location. They are consistently great meals. A great experience at the Dublin location as well! Welcome to Dublin Z Cucina!

We were seated nearly 45 minutes after our reservation time (and after asking 2x when our table might be ready). We weren't offered any solid explanation as to why it took them so long to seat us, and once we were seated, the experience didn't improve much. Compared to other restaurants in the area, the food was less than impressive and the service was lukewarm. Based on our experience, I think we'll explore other options in the Bridge Park area next time.

We really like the Z Cucina in Grandview, and wanted to give the new one in Dublin a try. We went there after it had been open for two weeks, and I felt the food was not quite as good as the food at the Grandview location., and I wish there were more light and healthy options on the menu (but it is mostly an Italian restaurant so perhaps I can’t expect that.) The service was good and the space was spacious with a contemporary and slight industrial vibe. We did not have to shout to have a conversation which was a nice change of pace. Overall, I would give it 3.5 stars and might go back again.

We took friends to celebrate their anniversary for dinner at the new Bridge Park location. We were seated immediately, ordered drinks and waited a long time so Rachel our server bought the first round! The food was good. My husband liked the lasagne, the veggie and charcuterie boards were interesting and tasty and I enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli especially the savory breadcrumb mixture which could not balance the too sweet fruity sauce. The bread is very soft ( something with a chewier consistency with crunchy crust would be better vehicle not only for the olive oil served with the bread, but to eat with salad, cheeses and even pasta.)
As the evening progressed (the restaurant was busy and new, but table next to us had extremely attentive server) there were very long wait times between seeing our server which was only drawback for a return visit.

Food was delicious. Waiter was outstanding. Host/hostesses seemed a little disorganized. I'm guessing because the restaurant just recently opened, and they are still just getting into the groove.

Surprised to find a second Z Cucina on Open Table! Four friends got together for dinner before the holiday rush. So easy to get there and easy parking. Same great food and service. We enjoyed appetizers, dinner and dessert. We all enjoyed our first time there and will certainty go again!

This newest [open just 10 days] restaurant to hit Dublin is located in the Bridge Park area, with abundant free parking. Each of the four of us loved our dinners, and the servers were well trained, informative. My dinner, prosciutto-wrapped scallops on a bed of smoked salmon prosciutto with caper limoncello butter, but among the best I've ever had, and we've traveled to over 50 countries. Spacious seating means ease of room to pull chairs out, move around, and reasonably quiet.

An impromptu dinner with friends, all of who love good food, good beer and a happy bartender. We did make a reservation but after spending some time at the bar prior to our reservation time we decided to have dinner there instead of a table. Alicia (bartender) made us feel welcome and was delightful! The menu will make your head spin with so much wonderfulness offered! We were impressed with every dish that was served. Rick (turned out to be the owner) stopped by to ask if we were enjoying ourselves and if everything was good with us. What a pleasant surprise! We will be visiting again and again (that is if we can get a reservation once word gets out about this gem). Thanks for a great experience Z cucina!

So glad we tried this place. From the warm welcome by the owner to our server Dave, and our food everything was just exceptional. Throughout the night Rick the owner checked on our evening. The kids menu is great and inexpensive. Our daughter ordered the chicken strips which as was all the food homemade. I had the duck ragout and my wife had the squash ravioli in brown butter. For an appetizer we tried the fall vegetable plate. You must try the squash fries and the pumpkin brûlée. Everything was exceptional and we will absolutely be returning soon.

We love Z Cucina. We frequent the Grandview location and we were so excited to hear they were opening a second location in Dublin. You’ll get the same great food you’re used to at the Grandview location plus a bigger bar ( awesome happy hr specials). All their seasonal items are a must. I love that they’re always experimenting with the menu. The owner Rick or his wife are always there and both so attentive. By far one of our favorite restaurants in the city!

This is THE place if you want daily fresh ingredient meals, from the butternut squash soup to the Arctic Char special they have it all including daily on site fresh Gelato!
What other DUBLIN restaurant has that? I liked the 10 year Tawny Port for my dessert. If you want real fresh prepared Italian then you have found the place. I see us Dublin resident’s here each week. The manager (Rick) and staff have set the benchmark for service. Great food and service, thank you Rick for elevating our Dublin dining options! 5 stars.

Food was superb! Ambiance is not as cozy as the Grandview location. Felt industrialized. Maybe it is because it had just opened.
