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.

Hate to tell more people for selfish reasons- I want to be able to get a table!! You need a reservation so plan ahead. Fun, creative, delicious- close to theatres if you are show bound ---
I recommend ( The Brave New Workshop- if anyone wants to know!!). Great place-

I've been here 4-5 times. Always something new and fresh on the menu. The place is always packed so make a reservation (you need to call for groups larger than 4) or plan on waiting. The service is good as well. Easy to get to.

I'm not sure who my waiter was but he rocked! I asked him to surprise me so they made an original pizza with lamb, apple slices, spinach, and a some sort of sauce that had a kick to it. It was so much fun! We were also way under dressed but they didn't care and I love that the host pulled out the table so we could sit down instead of sliding around the corner booth. Very nice! Props to you all.

Downtown Minneapolis is so full of dining options that choosing can be hard and the risk of disappointing is high. We took a chance and walked into Zelo without a reservation on a busy Saturday night and lucked out on a table right away. The first thing that struck is that the staff there knows that waiting tables is an art, not just a job. Courteous service, relevant explanations on the menu, the sense of detail and care in their approach was simply delighting. The ahi tuna spring roll, their legendary seabass and the homemade icecream sampler blew us away. Not the mention the extensive wine list which you have the pleasure to browse on an ipad. A memorable dining experience.
