Great food and service . Rick is an engaged owner who doubles as a warm host. Knowledgeable and efficient wait staff. Menu is well rounded and changes seasonally. Food is fresh and always well prepared. Excellent wine options at fair price points.

We booked a Saturday night dinner party here for us and friends. I think I called ahead...about two weeks in advance. I spoke with Chef George and hinted at some menu ideas for the evening. We dined family style and everyone had a wonderful time. We had prime rib which, unfortunately, I forgot to photograph along with the other outstanding... More

I have visited many places in Columbus, Ohio this was one of the best I really enjoyed my experience eating dinner with my wife. Impressed that it all started by being greeted by Rick later to find that he was the owner of the restaurant. Wow the food was amazing!

After too long of an absence we revisited a charming eatery in Grandview Z Cusina di Spirito to celebrate our birthdays. Everything was perfect. Our table by the window, low lights, soft music and fabulous food. My Cosmo was served frosty and perfectly blended. The home made bread was divine with a light texture and great taste. The winter salad... More
