The new Summer menu is just fantastic, my perfect seared scallops melted in my mouth and the smoky risotto just nailed a flavor explosion. The summer salad with the house made feta was also a perfect companion to the house specialty drink,basil Gin smash! Todd our attentive server was also just as smashing. Plan to be there many more times to try out the other offerings like the smoked chicken ravioli!

When going to Z Cucina; ALWAYS avail yourself of the SPECIALS as they truly
are that. Everything is so fresh and flavorful and the waitstaff are working so hard during
this Covid time. We've never been disappointed since going to both locations over
the past 20 years. Our favorite modern Italian spot!

Enjoyed the service and atmosphere, food was a miss for us. Soupy burnt lasagna, and short ribs were also very disappointing. Recommend steering clear of those 2 options.

First time at this location, have visited the Grandview restaurant previously. More spacious than Grandview but still classy, great location in the middle of the Bridge Park District. We had just drinks and appetizers but enough to enjoy and get a sense of the place. Excellent service - ask for Gregory if you have a chance!

Service was outstanding! Great Italian food from across the peninsula and surrounding islands. Sardinian corn was a stand-out as were the cannolis.

Water had hair in it. Caesar salad did not have any croutons. It was just ok, I’ve had better romaine at home. Had to ask for bread. Chose antipasto but didn’t cone out first. Server was a bit ditsy.

I wasn’t to impressed with the food. The ravioli had about 2 tablespoons of meat in one gigantic noodle with not enough sauce for the entire dish. The cheese board was good but the portions of cheese to crackers was not well thought out. Crumbled cheeses are a great touch to a board but are not easy to pick up unless you use tiny tongs or tiny forks. Was more of a fight then a pleasure for the food. The scallops were bitter the sauce was decent just needed a touch of sweetness to it. Service was great but it seemed like the hostess staff was very nervous and didn’t want to do anything unless the gm said it was ok. Also please don’t scold your staff in the middle of the dining area. The other thing that I found SUPER annoying was the paper on the tables you are an upscale restaurant that did not appear to give crayons to kids for drawing or dumping a crap boil on the table. It’s tacky pay the linen fee if your going to use linen. Also a facility charge??? On the bottom of every receipt. the pricing of your food should make up for the facility charge. Facility charges are to be included in the pricing of the items you sell. All this does is scream that you can seem to manage your books or have margins for the goods you serve to correspond to the bills that come out of your bottom line at the end of the night. One last thing you have an amazing view out your back windows that I’m sure isn’t cheap. Use it to your advantage keep the blinds open!!! Don’t shut them unless the customers ask you to or unless the sun is 100 percent shining in people’s faces there’s not much to look at inside since it seems very mute Italian is bright and colorful but there was a lot of gray tones when it came to the decor.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful dining experience! Service was superb and a great atmosphere. The noise level wasn’t so loud that you had to try and speak over the noise. Gregory was our waiter and was very attentive. He even obliged us when we were ready by taking some pics for us.

The summer menu is here! Our server, Angela, was super nice and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the smoked chicken ravioli and the goat cheese/tomato ravioli. Such deep, full flavors for both entrees. We ended with the vanilla bourbon gelato. It was so creamy and heavenly. Such a nice girls’ night out.

This is a great spot. A very nice experience from start to finish. The staff is awesome and the owner is present and very attentive. I also discovered they have a take-out special for when we don't feel like going out. Basically, $65 for a complete dinner for two that even includes a bottle of house wine. What a nice offer. The food was great and the homemade pasta (I assume it's homemade because it's so good!) was delightful. The red sauce dish was a little sweet for out tastes but the aglio olio was outstanding, as was the Caesar salad. We'll definitely be back.

My husband and I went to celebrate our 6 month wedding anniversary (I know that’s cheesy) and we had such an amazing experience at Z Cucina! From walking in the door everyone acknowledged that it was a special occasion for us and that was so sweet! Gregory was an amazing server and gave amazing recommendations! We will be back!

We had an exceptional dining experience at Z Cucina di Spirito Dublin last Friday night. The food, service, and ambiance were all top notch. The service was friendly, attentive and spot on, while the food was just amazing! The owner even took the time to talk with us to see how our experience was that evening. This is just one of the many reasons I choose to support our local small business owners. The whole evening was perfection! I highly recommend this restaurant and plan to dine there again soon!
