    Excellent venue from the greeting upon entering the door to my final thanks for visiting please come back when I left. Entree selection suggested was excellent. Lamb and pasta dish. I would not have selected just seeing on menu but was a great dish.

    Fabulous experience from the first bite of the beef tenderloin crostini to the hot, fresh cup of Americano at the end of an excellent meal. The food and the service was simply perfect.

    Was able to grab a last second reservation on a night when the place was packed. From the friendly greeting to the excellent service from the waiter to the fantastic food, an overall great experience. The recommended walleye did not disappoint. And the pasta with sausage was also very tasty. The attractive room added to the overall experience. Would definitely return when I’m back in town.

    We had a memorable dinner at this lovely restaurant in downtown Minneapolis. I recommend the braised lamb herb linguine. What a superb entree!

    Zelo has the best team of servers, bus staff, and chefs. Fresh and delicious food that is worth the extra few dollars. Meals came hot. Drinks came cold. Must be a great place to work because I recognize many long term employees. The floor manager demonstrated “servant leader” behaviors. It was a real pleasure to see a well run restaurant.

    I love Zelo's location on Nicollet Mall and the expansive dining room, with its high off-white colored ceilings, modern chandeliers and medium dark wood trim, is welcoming and comfortable. The menu is wide ranging Italian, from wood-fired pizzas to house made Pasta and aged steaks with a few wrinkles thrown in like Walleye Milanese and Beet Caprese salad. Our server was highly knowledgeable of the menu and attentive to our needs throughout the meal. Told my wife, that I plan to make Zelo part of my quarterly restaurant rotation, to see how the food changes from season to season.
