Stopped here on a whim. Outstanding food, staff and ambience. The server recommendations were spot on. The owner talked to us at the table and is very friendly. Will be back with the entire family.

No connection to Rocco. "Spirito" is a family name. The "di" is included to get to the name "Z kitchen of spirits". Hope to see you soon. Rick Ziliak Owner, Z Cucina di Spirito
