The Menu

At Zelo, we serve simple, fresh Italian cuisine made from local ingredients. We have a thoughtful, approachable wine list. We believe dining is more than a menu: it’s an experience, and ours is quality.

We passionately commit to bringing you a dining experience of quality food and wine with welcoming service. Every meal. Every day.

An enduring Minneapolis destination located in the heart of Nicollet Mall, 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.

Our philosophy is simple: the best food comes from the best ingredients. That’s why we use pure, double-filtered water in our cooking, baking and beverages. We buy local, fresh, in-season produce. Our sustainably sourced fish is flown in fresh daily. Our locally farmed meats are 100% natural, vegetarian-fed, and hormone and antibiotic free. Our desserts are always made with certified organic dairy products. Every day we hand-roll our homemade pastas, bake fresh bread, churn small batch gelatos and craft desserts.
