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.

They took great care of us for our anniversary celebration. Food was excellent and service was outstanding. Very noisy, so even though we had a corner table, the noise level was hard to have a conversation.

Food was just ok, really oversalted and way overpriced for the quality. I doubt I’ll dine there again.

When we walked in the host was scolding a homecoming group for not letting the restaurant know ahead of time about wanting two parties to be seated together. While I understand the hosts’ frustration, I think he could have handled it better.

For dinner we ordered the Lobster Carbonara, Caesar Salad & Scallop entré & Bowtie Pasta off of the Childrens menu. Three out of the four dishes included bell peppers, however, bell peppers were not listed in the description on the menu.

Overall the service was wonderful & our server quickly accommodated us. I will definitely return & order the Lobster Carbonara & Caesar Salad...without bell peppers....

We were celebrating our son’s birthday. The seasonal menu offered a nice variety. The two fish specials were outstanding. My daughter’s steak was ok but nothing exceptional. We enjoyed the environment and our server was attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back.

Restaurant was nicely decorated. Food was average. Staff was very disorganized. We had reservations but the host had no clue what he was doing and took a very long time to get us to a table. The wait staff acted like it was their first day. We won’t be returning any time soon.

Desserts were poorly executed, had to send one back twice. Ordered a steak that was served with cold toppings- intentionally, found that a bit odd. Appetizers were good, though.

Sat on the outdoor patio for a family date night with our kids. Food was excellent! Service was a little slow, but it was a busy Saturday night. The waitress was incredibly nice and great with the kids. This is our second time dining there and we definitely will be back.

Staff really made the restaurant. So welcoming and kind. Really felt natural to dine in. Arguably one of the better dining experiences I have had. Food is well worth the price, not too expensive for what you get. Great location, the Gf and I have already planned another date there

The service continues to decline at the Dublin location. Our waitress barely spoke or looked at us. The busboy acted similarly then dumped the bowl of remaining olive oil on our table without saying a word and walking away. On another visit it took thirty minutes to receive our drink order. Such a same. The food remains very good.

It is a beautiful restaurant but Service was super slow. Waited an hour for meal and had to go to the bar to get the correct drink. Waitress checked on us maybe twice we almost had to go to the bar again to grab a glass of wine to have with our dinner. This was our first experience and it was disappointing. Food was good but husband got ravioli and it was 3 pieces. So essentially $6 per ravioli. Seemed a bit steep. Will try again to give it another shot.
