Giovanni Battista Zeno (or Zen) (died 7 May 1501) was a cardinal of the Catholic Church.

He was made a cardinal by his uncle, Pope Paul II in November 1468. The Zeno Chapel in St Mark's Basilica, Venice, was built as his tomb.[1]

While bishop, he was the principal consecrator of Giovanni Paternione, Bishop of Malta (1479).[2]
