Our waitress was really nice and helpful. Excellent food. Nice ambiance. Excellent drinks. They can accommodate gluten free; I had plenty of GF options. The cheese... More

We have heard great things about ZCucina and we're not disappointed. The owner, Rick, called to confirm our internet reservation, and wanted to know if we were celebrating anything. My husband, Scott, said we were celebrating my birthday, and asked if they had limoncello. Rick said yes, they make their own, and when we arrive, they had already put in... More

Tonight was our first time and it was just perfect! The server was very friendly and welcoming. The food was beyond delicious - I had the goat cheese ravioli - my husband had the swordfish- both were flavorful and appropriately portioned as well as priced. It was what I expected and more. I was especially pleased because we each had... More

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
