Me and my girlfriend were in town for the week, and decided to go out for a nice dinner the night before we headed out. We saw that this was the #1 restaurant in Columbus and decided to give it a try and we definitely weren't disappointed! Every plate we tried was absolutely delicious. Everything on the menu is high... More

When I organized a birthday dinner for my wife and 14 of our friends, the owner Rick was quick to respond to my call and to accommodate my desired setup. The service was smooth and organized. Our food was delicious and had a beautiful presentation. The atmosphere was warm and social. Overall, we loved it and will be back again!

We went here for my daughter-in-law's birthday and were so glad we did. The food was amazing! We ordered four different dinners and everyone one loved their meals. I highly recommend the risotto fritters for an appetizer. We will definitely go back.

Z Cucina held a tasting of some fabulous wines, but the stars of the night were the gastronomic delights issuing from the kitchen. Who ever heard of gorgonzola cheesecake as an antipasto? It was a surprise and a delight. The rabbit loin with baked ricotta gnocchi was rich enough to be the secondo but oh no, there was much more... More

Vegetarian heaven! Great atmosphere. Freshest ingredients tasted. Ordered ricotta bruschetta, beet salad, goat cheese and sundried tomato ravioli, butterscotch panna cotta. Delicious dinner after a long drive and extremely flavorful. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

We chose this restaurant for a Birthday Celebration. Z Cucina di Spirito was the place because Trip Advisor customers rated it the VERY BEST of nearly 2000 restaurants in Columbus. We arrived and were greeted by the owner of the Z Cucina, Rick. He talked to us while our table was prepared. Then he introduced us to our water, Hailey,... More

Food was full of flavor and cooked perfectly! Wine and drink list is very good too. Service was outstanding - Haley was our server and she added to the fun evening out with friends. She not only provided great service, but she also gave good recommendations for appetizers, meals, and wine! Restaurant has a great atmosphere that's not too noisy.... More
