Description: At Zelo, we serve simple, fresh Italian cuisine made from local ingredients. Our handcrafted meals accompany a thoughtful, approachable wine selection. We believe dining is more than a menu: it is an experience, and ours is quality. When you’re our guest, our staff learn your name and remember your favorite glass of wine. We passionately commit to bring you the full dining experience – quality food and wine presented with welcoming service. Every meal. Every day. An enduring Minneapolis destination, Zelo was opened in 1999 by Rick Webb, a Minnesota restaurateur whose pursuits have set the standard in Twin Cities dining for over 40 years. Looking for another unparalleled dining experience in the south metro? Visit Rick Webb’s acclaimed Ciao Bella, the restaurant that inspired Zelo’s handcrafted food and dedicated service.

So four of us attended a business dinner. The restaurant specializes in Italian. My friends had that genre and all agreed it was excellent. For me the bread was great then organic salmon to die for. Just amazing. Waiter was friendly and service exceptional

This was a very nice place, however, the risotto I ordered wasn’t very authentic Italian. The cauliflower appetizer and my spouses
ravioli were delicious, as was the pumpkin cake and flourless chocolate cake. The wine was wonderful as well.

Zelos is our “go to” for a quick meal and drink before a performance at Orchestra Hall or The Dakota Jazz Club. The apps are generous (my favorite is the meatballs) and drinks perfectly poured. It’s often crowded in the bar area but we always get a seat. Try it. You’ll love it.

Excellent in-city dining. Beautiful dining room, superb service, and well-prepared dishes. We had the homemade pasta de mere (seafood) and halibut which were cooked perfectly although a little on the too salty side. Appetizers were to die for.

We stumbled upon this restaurant and had a very good experience. As it was crowded and there were no seats available in the dining room, we went to the bar area to wait. The bar manager came around the bar to take our drink order and then came to get us a bit later when a table opened up in the bar.The food was delicious and our server was friendly.
