Visited this place on my GF's bday. A good place for couples. Great service. Fantastic taste. Definitely suggest this place for a romantic dinner or a birthday dinners. They give a free cake for my GF's bday and that tasted amazing. Look at it below in the attached pictures.

Very nice experience to have a date night with the wife. Waitress was friendly and very knowledgable of the menu. Food was excellent and the ambiance was nice. We ate outside on the covered patio. Highly recommend.

We ate there a few hours ago and were very pleased with everything. We had appetizers, soup (chilled melon), Caesar salad; lasagna Bolognese and mozzarella stuffed crispy eggplant. Desserts and coffee. Server was outstanding. Atmosphere pleasantly bustling. Wore shorts in the 90 degree weather, no problem. With five glasses of wine, bill was 154. But you could have a very...

It's good- don't get me wrong but I would not want out of towners to think this is the best in town. Menu has some unique items and the food is excellent quality and not overpriced. I enjoyed my spinach salad with shrimp. The seasoning on the risotto ball and meatballs had an odd flavor. The service was ok. Nothing... More

All four of us had outstanding, but very different meals. It was Tuesday night so they had a small plate menu with a wide variety of delicious options. Salads, appetizers, and main courses were all excellent. We had mainly seafood and pasta so can't address the meats. No room for desserts. Nice patio.

My husband and I were only going to be in Columbus for one night. I looked on tripadvisor and typed in Italian restaurants. Z Cucina popped up first! It certainly did not disappoint. We had spent the day at the zoo (in shorts, mind you), mainly focusing on our water intake (it was over 90 degrees), so we were ready... More

We have never had a bad experience here, from the atmosphere, to wine, to dessert... It is just an excellent place. The cheese plate is one of our favorites. Always great seasonal options.

This place is amazing! Our food from start to finish was outstanding! Our waitress was very nice and caring. We never had to wait more then 5 - 10 minutes for anything, great service. The restaurant was very nicely designed, and not freezing. I have absolutely no complaints, excellent!

Great Food! Great Service! Great Cocktails! Went there after seeing that it ranked #1 on trip advisor and it lived up to the expectation. Had a great conversation with the owner. Super nice guy and very passionate about his restaurant! A must stop in Columbus!!!

Wow- this was simply incredible! You will love this restaurant- guaranteed! Sit on the patio. It is very comfortable and well decorated. The inside was nice too, not freezing like most restaurants this time of year! The staff was so nice and attentive and making a reservation is very easy! The complimentary valet is the cherry on top and is... More
