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.

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.

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!

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!"

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.

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.
