Z Cucina di Spirito Dublin
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.

A wonderful experience. Food was fantastic, server was busy but well informed and friendly. Highly recommend. Was it absolutely the best Italian food I have ever had, no, but top 10 ?
Always good food and great service!
My daughter's homecoming group ate dinner here on Saturday. First I am disappointed in the lack of help with the menu and helping the group understand the menu. Next, most of the group ordered the chicken Alfredo- all of the girls mentioned their chicken was undercooked, the noodles were overcooked and stuck together. One of the girls actually got sick in the restaurant restroom. They are all 14-15 years old, so all they knew to do about the situation was pay their bills, however I feel this was a terrible experience for them, they sent me photos and. videos of their food, they were very accurate about their descriptions.
Food was very good. The restaurant had a lot of energy. Our server, GiGi, was an absolute delight. We love this place.
Our waiter Greg was fantastic!
One of our favorite restaurants, wish we lived closer. We had two pasta dishes w a crab cake app and Caesar salad. Service was excellent outdoor dining is the best
We will be back more often.
Celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary! As always (and we’ve dined there multiple times) the evening was great!!
Just a nice atmosphere with great food and thoughtful service, very well done!
Everything was delicious and the service was exceptional! Our waiter was so attentive and considerate of dietary restrictions. A great night out!
Another exceptional dining experience at Z Cucina in Dublin. We love 'Meatball Monday' there! Wonderful food and thank you Kendra for fantastic service!
Another fantastic dinner, food and drinks were exceptional as always! And you can never go wrong with the chocolate Mousse
Was not impressed with the food or prices. The mussels were very fishy. The crab dish was even more fishy and had shells in it. The best thing about the dinner was the bread and the dessert. Drinks were just ok.
Beautiful restaurant. Very accommodating. Thank you for the great experience.
Food and service were outstanding. Ambience is good, a little on the industrial side, but some people like that.
All 4 of us were astounded by each entree, the calamari was the best all of us ever tasted. Super service, impeccable food, Thais is the fine Italian dining in Dublin.
My fiancé and I both got sick after eating there 9/17/21
Gregory was one of the best waiters I have ever experienced in my dining experiences. Service was top tier, jokes and humor were top tier. I would come back for the sole purpose of him being my waiter again.
Not sure what was going on this night..but service was horrible..7:30 reservation and didn’t get our food until over an hour later..The waitress was so nice but showed up 15
Minutes after being seated to get drink orders, 20 minutes later to get our food order, and then about a hour wait to get our food. It wasn’t busy enough for this to be occurring and I have been there enough times to know this isn’t normal. The excuse of it being short staffed is one thing..but to be basically ignored and not ha e someone communicate the extreme wait is unacceptable. Lastly, my friend had olive oil spilled in her handbag and all though didn’t want to complain about it I was so embarrassed that I recommend this place to my friends. Food was ok, over cooked chicken, over salted crab pasta dish, disgusting sausage ricotta, but great steak, veal, and Cesar salad. Overall a bad experience!! We had an amazing experience days earlier..so when there ask for Kendra!
We dines on a busy Saturday night when the restaurant was short staffed. Our waiter, Gregory, told us they were not fully staffed and apologized ahead of time for any delays. We were in no hurry and appreciated his "heads up". The food was delicious and the wait staff was attentive to filling our water glasses. We dined outdoors and there was some noise from passing traffic & pedestrians, but not enough to spoil the atmosphere. We would certainly dine here again when we return to Columbus!
Calamari was good. Pasta sauce was really sweet- tasted artificially sweet. Steak was just ok.
This was our second visit. We brought friends who are world travelers and restaurant snobs. He is a retired county restaurant inspector. When we got our calamari app he said this is the best calmari I've had !!! Maggi did a great job on the service!!
We look forward to a return visit !!!
Dinner was delicious! The halibut is a wonderful option! Plentiful portion of fish. The atmosphere was inviting, we sat on the patio. The restaurant was not overcrowded, so many different groups were enjoying dinner, from elegant dinner dates, after work cocktails and families!
We had a wonderful time here! The food was absolutely delicious. We knew the meal was going to be fantastic when the bread and oil were served. Greg was a great server- he answered all of our questions to guide us to some fantastic choices. Choosing what to order was the hardest part because the menu options all sound appetizing. We were very impressed and will be back again.
We had a group of ladies meeting up at Z Cucina di Spirito in Dublin to celebrate a birthday. It was the best spot to celebrate. We met for happy hour at 5pm with reservations for dinner at 6. Perfect spot to celebrate. Our waitstaff in the bar as well at our table were great. "Couldn't be better!"
Our server, Emily, was spot on; there when we needed her, but not "hovering". Drinks and food were superb. A favorite place.
Good food. Good service. Great place to dine. Loved it.
They will call and confirm your reservation. Very busy area so arrive early to find parking. The food was excellent especially the homemade meatballs and focaccia bread. Cocktails are on the small side. Would return.
A very busy night at Z, with service and quality of food that is always the very very best. Always enjoy a night out at Z. Best restaurant in Dublin & Grandview. Rick, Thanks for all you do to allow patrons to have an enjoyable evening!!!
Our absolute favorite restaurant! Z cucina hits every mark from service to food to ambience. Don’t miss an opportunity to dine there. It will become your favorite, too!
Had a great meal with group of 8. Host and waitstaff were fantastic - accommodating and friendly. Food, cocktails excellent as usual. Recommend making reservations as they can get busy. Don't be discouraged by the charge for no-show reservations - they need to run a business after all. Thumbs up!
Owner Rick Ziliak is a welcoming and gracious host constantly circulating the dining room to ensure each guest is getting the best food and service possible. The pastas are always creative and flavorful and the seafood specials are inspired by whatever is the freshest catch available. Truly one of the best restaurants in central Ohio.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience celebrating or anniversary. The meal was excellent and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend.
Awesome food and atmosphere.
Booth in the bar was not that good. Personally felt the pasta was too thick.
The food was amazing, great atmosphere. We got to speak with the owner, who was amazing to speak with and super friendly.
Gregory n Brooke were amazing!!!
From the over the top Manhattan to our great server Katherine, this was an outstanding dining experience. I had the house made from scratch smoked chicken ravioli, a flavor combination with the fantastic sauce that was perfect. My date had their excellent Caesar salad which had “the best” grilled chicken ever, she proclaimed. If you looking for fine Italian dining this is the place for you. We will be back often.
Prompt and attentive service, excellent drink choices, and the food was great.
Food and cocktails are always top notch. We had a great dinner.
