Made reservations on open table. Owner called the day of to ask if this was a special occasion. I said that we were celebrating completion of medical treatment. Valet parking is free with friendly greeting. The owner met us at the door and sat us immediately. House made sausage appetizer and cheese board were both excellent. Pork loin was cooked... More

In our travels both domestic and international, we have a shortlist of restaurants that impress us so much that we would consider another trip there just to revisit it. Colorado Springs had 2 (see our separate reviews on Trip Advisor if interested). This restaurant has recently joined that list. Driving through Columbus Ohio we used our trusty Trip Advisor to...

It's a cliche: Great food, great service; great atmosphere. But it's true. Z Cucina is one of my favorite restaurants in the Columbus area. I've been going there about six years, and have always had a great experience.

Z Cucina was at it's best! The restaurant was packed. We did have reservations, and were treated warmly when we arrived, and the owner also checked in with us during our delicious dinner. The wine special was a wonderful Spanish red. Our party of 5 got a mix of standard dishes, lasagna, and flat bread, but the specials were also... More

This was our second visit to Z Cucina. We are from the Atlanta area and come to Columbus each year to watch our kids swim at the OSU invite. We discovered this fantastic restaurant on our last visit to Columbus (one year ago). We loved it so much that we came back again this year...and brought extra friends to share... More

We went for some good wine and a lighter meal. I have tried many appetizers at this restaurant before. All were wonderful. I highly recommend the "Monday Meatballs"! Despite the name, they are available every day of the week. This time we order simple caesar salads. I also ordered their homemade sausage. It was terrific. I should mention that they... More

As usual Rick, the owner, was at the door to greet us and sat us down immediatly. This last time we were there we ordered Beef Tartar and Risotto Fritters as... More

We were seated at our scheduled appointment, which was great, since it was busy. Angela our waitress was very helpful and was attentive, but not ever present. The atmosphere was very nice, we were on the patio but it was very comfortable. The food was amazing.
