We just drove by, saw the beautiful outdoor seating, and went in. We were so glad we did! White tables, and black accents made the outdoor room so inviting. The hummus appetizer was off the charts good!! The meals were like none other. Made with the freshest in season ingredients. Thank you so much to the owner for stopping by... More

Every meal I've had at Z Cucina di Spirito has been excellent. Although we don't get there often, they make a real point of welcoming us BACK. They obviously check their records against reservations, but it feels sincere, not just like a gimmick. Service is polished and not rushed.

Z Cucina is simply a phenomenal restaurant...the food is of the highest quality and the service takes you to a different place. My wife and I have been eating at Z Cucina for years and it never, ever disappoints. If you are looking for a simply magnificent meal in Columbus, go to Z Cucina!

There are three ways, I believe, to sit at this restaurant - at the bar, at the bistro part of the bar, and in the more formal area. I ate at the bar. Unusually comfortable high stools. Delicious bread was served (and refilled with a smile). I had a special request, a deletion, and it was handled graciously. Wine special... More

This is my "go-to" restaurant when entertaining out of town co-workers. The menu provides a great variety of choices, the service is consistently excellent and the food is very fresh. I tend to order the chicken parmesan most times as it's a "real" full chicken breast that is grilled not fried and the pasta that comes with this meal is... More

We were on our way to Columbus from Cleveland for a concert. When heavy rain slowed us down, we spoke with Rick, who was happy to accommodate a change to our reservation, and happily took our order over the phone. When we arrived, the restaurant was packed, but we were immediately seated, and were served our first two courses. The... More

My wife and I have been eating at Z regularly since it opened - I met Rick when he was at the North Market. In the 8 years since it opened, we have observed Z mature from a nice local restaurant to Best in Class! Rick has continued to refine the quality of ingredients, the diversity of the menu and...

In my opinion, Z Cucina is the best restaurant in Columbus. Every time we go there we have the most wonderful meal and service and the atmosphere is beautiful. Z is always accommodating to my gluten allergy and they have the best FRESH GF pasta which they cook separately to avoid cross-contamination. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who... More
