We celebrated our 45th Wedding Anniversary at this quaint place. We loved the food and the patio was very nice to sit on for dinner. We had the special of the night Meatball Monday, which included a good salad, freshly made pasta, and great meatballs, with a cannoli dessert for $25 per person. We loved the service, the great food... More

I have dined at the Z cucina twice now and am definitely looking forward to many more visits. The food is fresh and locally sourced. Most of the pastas are made in house and the owner (who came to our table both visits) tells me he has purchased a new pasta maker so that even more of their delicious noodles... More

I love the happy hour here. Great food, great (generous) drinks! You have to try their house-made mozzarella.

This a place you should not miss. It is a small venue but once you walk in very impressed. It is elegant and romantic. You can self park or use their valet service . The food was wonderful ; nice presentation and just really good. Portions are very adequate. Food is delicious and customer service outstanding

We were looking for someplace different, not the usual chain food . Fantastic menu and great service. My husband had the 3 course Wednesday Wine Special which consisted of lamb, scallops and an amazing salad. I had the Chicken Parmigiano, which was great. The only suggestion would be crunchy bread for your olive oil dip. Great place to spend a... More

The owner sat us at our table, interesting and attentive. The server had a person shadowing him who did an excellent job when left alone. The food was good, the complementary bread should be eaten warm to get the full flavor. It's a very nice soft Rosemary bread. I had the basil ricotta gnocchi, my spouse had the goat cheese... More

We came there with the great reviews in tripadvisor which didn't disappoint us. The dishes were amazing but the service was super slow.

When my fiancé made the reservations for our dinner, he was asked if this was for a special occasion which was wonderful! From the moment we were greeted by the hostess, Z Cucina treated us well!
