This is one of my favorite places in Columbus, always amazing!
Wonderful evening, service person was attentive and very friendly. We were a party of four and all four meals were superb.
Ordered espresso and server brought it in a broken cup. After providing the feedback they replaced my espresso but brought it again a broken cup
A wonderfully intimate restaurant. The waitress suggested an appetizer that was out of this world. The food was delicious. Everything was perfect except that the waitress made a mistake with my husband's order. He ate it anyway and it was delicious, just not what was ordered. We would definitely go there again when passing through Columbus.
Wonderful dining experience. The evening started out with a great server, Cheryl. She was very knowledgable about the menu and gave us a play by play about each dish. We were dining with friends and decided on the charcuterie and cheese for appetizers and I think the only thing during the whole meal we found lacking was the charcuterie. The meats were not very distinctive and didn't really taste anything special. I am a huge charcuterie fan and have had it often so I feel comfortable saying it was a little lacking. The cheese was wonderful as was the breads which we were told were house made. All of our entrees (chicken parm, manicotti, ravioli and lobster carbanara) were all delicious and ample servings. Wine was delicious also, nice to see a restaurant around Columbus with Montepulciano wine.
We arrived early for our reservation. They came and got us at the bar when our table was ready. We were greeted at the table by the owner. The menu was explained to us in very good detail. My girlfriend is a vegetarian. She had a lot of different options to choose from. The food and service was excellent. The portions were large.
This was our first time visiting this restaurant and it definitely won't be our last. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
From the moment we were greeted to the very end this was a perfect dining experience. Rick greeted us warmly. Our server was knowledgeable and very good. The food was perfect. This has become our go to place for Italian. Kudos to the chef - very well done
Food was excellent! Server was attentive and made great suggestions
We have eaten at Z Cucina many times, and it is always a great experience. The menu changes seasonally, and there is a lot of variety on the menu, with American choices in addition to its emphasis on Italian. It is very reasonably priced for such a fine dining spot.
We came in from out of town and were immediately greeted at the door as we were long lost family! The atmosphere was very authentic, service with perfect and the food was amazing. Everybody who came to our table was polite, professional and fun to dine with-that can be a difficult balance in the restaurant industry but they have mastered it well.
If our travels ever bring us to Columbus again we will be sure to dine with them again.
Always a great meal and service to match!! Top notch from start to finish.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Perfect for a date night or a dinner with friends and family. Would absolutely recommend.
Fantastic chef specials! Will be back soon to try more. Nice to have the owner on site making sure everything was great. Excellent unique cocktails too.
Our favorite Columbus restaurant and this was another example of why. Great food and fantastic service. We were treated like we were the only party in the restaurant! They even created a unique dessert for my wife's birthday, not just something off the menu. Their seasonal menu rotation means that their dishes are always fresh and new. We love it more each and every time that we go!
Awesome!!! Great food, great service and very attentive stafff. Will go back 😀
Incredible experience! The owner, Rick, greeted us and showed us to our table. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Food was amazing! The risotto fritters were a great start to a delicious meal. Desserts were beyond delectable. Can’t wait to return to Columbus and eat here again!
Ate here on second night of Arnold sports festival. The waiter started us in the right direction and everything from there was perfect. Appetizers where fantastic. Meals where fantastic. Wine was fantastic. Atmosphere was fantastic. So. I guess you could say the whole experience was a great success. We will definitely go again when in town.
This was a return visit after a great meal a few years back. We were not impressed from the get go with our server. Very un-engaged, seemed in a huge hurry. My husband has celiac and we ordered the cheese plate gluten free, it came with a cracker and was told to just take it out. His main entree was cold, sent it back, it came back out not much better but he didn't want to make a big fuss. When we had the same issue a few weeks back at another restaurant they comped us our meal! They offered us sorbet while he waited.....we dine out frequently and were not impressed, won't be going back.
One of my favorite restaurants in Columbus. Staff is accommodating and friendly. Food is consistently wonderful. Has a great happy hour.
Terrific service and a very warm and kind welcoming. A great dinner that exceeded our expectations. Tuna was cooked to perfection and Kale salad was delicious. It tasted like it had the finest ingredients that were fresh and prepared to perfection.
Great food great service went on a Monday no valet service and parking was an issue.
Love it. Rick does a great job. Menu selection is awesome. Food quality amazing.
Food was great service was great we had asked for a window seat but when we got there all the window seats were taken that was the only downfall to the night other than that everything else was excellent
Delicious meal and fantastic service! I had the stuffed pork chop and my husband had the lamb. Both were phenomenal! And the peanut butter cheesecake with peanut brittle was to die for!! Two thumbs up from us!!
Let’s just say what a great place to have dinner. The staff is incredible. They even gave us a special table in the window and surprised my husband with a birthday dessert. We will definitely be going here again.
Great food and great times with friends. Would definitely go back again. The ricotta butter cake as an appetizer is phenomenal!
Excellent 👍 wonderful, helpful server, great menu, and superb food. We were very happy 😊 and will soon return!
Any occasion dining. Date night/celebrations/ family dinner, it’s always the right choice.
Wonderful food and atmosphere- everything was cooked perfectly! The staff and service was great.
Our first visit was on Valentine’s Day for dinner and we really enjoyed our experience. The place was very spacious and didn’t feel crammed even though it’s not a very big place. This was very nice considering it was a busy holiday for eating out. Server was nice but we really thought the person refilling our water glasses was very polite and seemed to fill them always at the right time, something we took notice of. We would definitely revisit this restaurant and look forward to it!
Valentine’s dinner was excellent as usual. Kala did a perfect job making our special night perfect. Every person there provides top drawer service in a most down to earth friendly way! It deserves its number 1 ranking. A neighborhood jewel!
This is our 2nd visit in the past three weeks. We had to made another visit to Columbus and wanted to try Z Cucino again. The test of an excellent dining experience is having another great meal at the same place. Our first experience was excellent, followed by another excellent experience.
Thank you Z Cucino

Food and drinks were excellent. Our party of four had salads, different pasta dishes, and dessert. Everything was delicious including the wine and cocktails. The service and attention to detail was also great.
I made reservation for 6 people. Unfortunately my friend got sick and couldn’t join us. When 4 of us arrived at the restaurant I told the host/owner that unfortunately it was just 4 of us for dinner.., he reacted in an arrogante and sarcastic way. If I was alone with my husband I’d have left but another couple was with us so we stayed. The service was fine, the food was below our expectations... I will say very below expectations.
I won’t go back ... it is not worth it... there are better restaurants in town. It is overpriced for the quality...
it was my first experience in the restaurant and I am very disappointed...
Dinner and service were enjoyed by all. We will return.
Excellent food and service. Good portion sizes. Romantic ambiance.
It is always a pleasure to dine at Z Cuchina. The choices vary but the quality is superb, and there are excellent vegetarian options. Desserts should also be noted.
One of our favorite restaurants. Tonight’s dinner was the Halibut special and Chicken Parmigiana. Both dishes were well prepared and delicious. In house made Lemoncello is delicious as an after dinner treat. Highly recommend this restaurant.
There are so many wonderful aspects about Z Cucina. The food is made fresh in house, a quality that’s evident with every bite you take. The service is outstanding. . .from the kind and hospitable owner (who remembers his customers), to the bartenders who can mix the best martinis. . .to the wonderfully kind servers (Hayley is really awesome) who have the confidence to recommend dishes (and they’re spot on, too).
Z Cucina is exceptional and worth the try. You’ll love it.
Good food and service
