Just sooo good, as always. Great spot, great food and wine, great service.
I've been here many times, so it's about time I showed some love. I recently struck up a new relationship and wanted to surprise and impress my special someone. I knew I could count on Z Cucina di spirito.
Z should be in the top 5 of every Columbus Bests list. The service is always phenomenal. Rick, the owner, is always there to greet you. He's genuine, warm, and it's a nice personal touch to have him chit chat with customers coming in or heading out.
In between, though, you're in for a treat. Fresh homemade pasta and cheeses, authentic original cooking. Plenty of options on the menu for adventurous eaters while keeping fresh takes on classic staples (see: their fabulous lasagna). I'm a carnivore but my gal is a lacto-ovo vegetarian and she was SO HAPPY there was such a wide variety of options. I actually went with a non-meat option as well so we could both share and have no regrets. The cocktails were inventive and the lemon cheesecake we shared for desert was perfect- texture and flavor.
Not sure why I chose this restaurant, but glad I did. The menu is diverse. Waitstaff fabulous but not intrusive. Greeters payed attention to detail before dinner and after. Parking may be an issue, just use the valet parking and don't deal with it.
My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant before attending a Cirque Du Soleil show. Our reservation was for 6pm and the show started at 7:30pm. The restaurant knew about our time restriction and sat us the moment we walked in the door. Our server (Nick) was quick to greet us and help us with meal and wine selection to pair so that we could have the food quickly but without feeling rushed. The meal was delicious and the wine he recommended paired perfectly (while also fitting both of our tastes!). We were able to finish eating and cash out before 6:50, giving us plenty of time to get to the show. The service here was superb, and we will definitely be back! Thanks Nick and the rest of the staff!
Outstanding service and great food!
The menu was limited, so I didn't feel like it was truly an Italian restaurant. My date ordered the tortelli - which was basically a plateful of onions. My food was appetizing, but I was expecting more pasta's as it is an Italian restaurant.
The deserts were delicious! Overall, the service and ambiance was great -the main course was a miss for me.
We went to the restaurant for our 27th anniversary. The food was wonderful , service excellent and they gave us a complimentary dessert with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. Highly recommended.
It was great, it was a great way to remember my trip to Rome. I enjoyed the Margarita pizza!
We always have a great meal and a great dining experience at Z Cucina. This was no exception- the food was delicious and the service excellent!
Always an excellent experience! Delicious food, great atmosphere, and quality service.
I had a wonderful time at Z Cucina this past weekend. I went for a birthday dinner with my boyfriend. The environment on the patio was great and the service even better. The staff was very attentive and made sure we were pleased. We both got homemade pasta dishes that were exceptional. I will definitely be returning to Z Cucina for a nice dinner out and will recommend it to a friend.
Great experience from greeting at the door to service and food! Have not been here for years but food was better than I remembered. We shared the crispy prosciutto flatbread that was delicious and the pork tenderloin entree was best I have ever had. The garlicky white bean purée and roasted carrots were fantastic! My husband loved the chicken parm and my daughter ate every bite of the lamb chops! Only disappointment was the ‘tortellini’ which came out as ravioli and way too much sauce and onions! The waitress tried to tell us that is how tortellini are made but after years of living in Rome we were not convinced. Anyway look forward to When they open in Dublin this summer!
The food is good. The hosts and servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. The outer porch was welcome since it was less noisy.
It was excellent as usual. A group of friends catching up over a nice meal is usually a good time. If you add the ambiance of a nice restaurant with great food, nice people and attentive service it can turn out to be a special evening. That is what happened at tonight’s meal.
What a great restaurant!!!! Ambiance, food, service was impeccable!!!
Kelby was our waitress and she made the evening even more fun and special:)
Went with my fiancée for her 30th bday. The waiter was great, Rick the owner was very nice. They all made sure we had a great time. The food is great, Rib Eye is a must have as well as the Risotto Fritters. 100% sure we are going back. The price is very affordable for the kind of food you are going to experience.
We had one of the seafood specials--if halibut is on the menu order it!
A great authentic local Italian restaurant with excellent homemade cheeses and unique dishes.
Innovative,changing menus. Everything was delicious. If ever back in Columbus I would definitely go back.
Excellent meal. Charred peas appetizer was delicious and large enough to share. Tasty salad. Each of us had a different pasta and all were terrific. Gluten free pasta good quality and cooked properly , not mushy as can happen. Tiramisu and panna cotta were enjoyed by some of us for dessert. We were able to converse without shouting and could hear each other which makes for a more enjoyable dining experience .
Wonderful! We loved everything about our dining experience. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable, providing helpful and excellent suggestions whenever we asked. The food was superb. We’ll be back! Thank you!
It was an outstanding experience all around. We came for a birthday dinner and we will definitely be back.
The owner makes it a place you want to go... very few places today have an owner there to greet you by name and thank you for the business. The wine list is nice and very reasonable. Our dinners were very good... I noticed they’ve taken the food and presentation up a notch too.
We will be back soon and often.
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.
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.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Perfect for a date night or a dinner with friends and family. Would absolutely recommend.
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.
