We had a wonderful meal for a family celebration back in November 2016. Two of us are gluten-free and found Z Cucina to be extremely accommodating. All of the menu selections looked interesting and we had quite a few gluten-free choices. Memorable aspects of the meal include the charcuterie board we shared as an appetizer and the butterscotch creme brulee... More

We have visited this establishment five times, and it just keeps getting better. The food is amazing, the service is topnotch, and the atmosphere is wonderful. I truly don't know of better Italian food anywhere. Keep up the good work Z Cucina. We will see you next time we are in Columbus.

I consulted Tripadvisor for a restaurant in Columbus. This was at the top of the list. So for dinner on New Year's Eve, we made reservations. We walked in and were almost immediately seated. Server had drink orders in and served 5 minutes after seating. We perused the menu. We had read about the homemade cheese and salumis. So, we... More

This is a followup to my prior review in November (you can either scroll down the reviews here or check my profile and list of reviews to quickly find it). This time we decided to make a weekend of it in order to enjoy the dinner without having to rush to make the drive back to Indy. Bottom line: we... More

A fabulous Christmas Eve dining experience. Our first visit to Z Cucina but definitely not the last. Rick, the owner, greets you at the door and makes sure your experience is everything you expect from a 5 star restaurant. Everything was perfect from the cocktails to the appetizers to the entrees to the desert. And our server Jillian was fantastic... More

A wonderful holiday dinner with family. Z Cucina di Spirito was the perfect restaurant to celebrate my parents 38th wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable and the food delectable. Oh and of course the selection of wine was not lacking. Our waitress, Emily, was so sweet and always on top of things. Some of our favorites of the evening were... More
