My husband and I, along with another couple, went here for my birthday dinner. It was an OSU game night, so it was extremely empty in the dining room. Good for us! My husband I ordered the appetizer sausage (which we wouldn't normally do, but it sounded good.) It was excellent. Didn't have a ton of extra flavor, but was... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a recent Friday night. Parking in this area was near impossible so the valet was much appreciated. Unfortunately the valet area was backing up coming and going. We were quickly seated by the owner and greeted by our waiter shortly thereafter. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive yet seemed somewhat overwhelmed... More

What a delightful dining experience! Our party of three all enjoyed delicious meals and appetizers. Our meals began with crispy and perfectly done risotto fritters followed by spaghetti and meatballs by one party member while my other friend and I enjoyed goat cheese and sundried tomato ravioli. The evening was completed perfectly by a Spanish red wine that was offered... More

The food at Z Cucina was quite good. We started with the risotto fritters and the frito misto; both were tasty and came in large portions. We also very much enjoyed the entrees, goat cheese ravioli and sausage tortelloni, which came in slightly smaller portions. The wine list, although not huge, provided a good sample to choose from. All together... More

While I am glad that you enjoyed the culinary portion of your evening, I must apologize for the lapse in what should be a very warm and hospitable experience. I sent two (private) emails that were attempting to help me find who exactly it was that provided your table service for the evening. Your feedback is critical and I hope... More

While visiting from New Jersey for my dads surgery this week, we found Z Cucina on Tripadvisor and decided to try it based on good reviews. I was slightly skeptical as we have many superb Italian restaurants in NJ. This ended up being one of the best meals I have ever had! Every thing was sheer perfection, from the fantastic... More

A group of 5 of us enjoyed a terrific meal here while in town for a family members surgery at OSU. The sharing included a couple of pasta dishes, appetizers and dessert. The risotto fritters appetizer was fabulous, and not something you find often. The hummus appetizer had 3 types of hummus served with very nice small pieces of bread.... More

I live in Grandview, and this is my go-to restaurant. I've never had anything I didn't like, and the potato gnocchi special earlier this summer was in my top ten meals of all time. The service is friendly and excellent, the food is consistently good and fresh, and outdoor seating and location are fantastic. We always skip dessert and walk... More

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
