The welcoming atmosphere and delicious dishes make the experience at Zelo one to remember. The menu has something for everyone, from small plates, to meat dishes, to their house made pastas. Definitely save room for dessert; the creme brulee is exquisite.

We ate here recently with our friends. My wife and I had been there before but not our guests we had the Sea Bass with Pesto, Grilled Salmon, Tortiglioni, and Linguini di Mare. All four were keepers. All were pleased. We'll all likely return.
