My daughter and myself had the opportunity to be in Columbus for the weekend and found this delightful Cucina!!!! We began the meal with the cheese plate.... feast! The different cheeses as well as the presentation with the bread and crackers were incredibly appealing. Followed with a Fall salad with pears and then the main course of a Flatbread and... More

I have heard nothing but positive reviews of Z Cucina and I have to say our experience was nothing short of impeccable. Rick the owner greeted us and took us to our table. He talked to us about the menu and made some great recommendations. I had the scallops with mushroom risotto and my friend had the pistachio and squash... More

Loved Z - went there for a girly dinner with my best friend whilst in Columbus visiting her and was the stand out meal of the trip (and one of the best I have ever had!) Food was divine - very well presented and perfect portions - a little left over (but not huge amounts as we had to keep... More

My husband and I went to Z Cucina on 10/22/14 for our 4th anniversary dinner. I'd never heard of the place, but noticed that it received great reviews. The service was amazing from the time we pulled up for the complementary valet until the time we left. We spoke with the owner for a little while and he is a... More

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
