Another great lunch at this peculiar place, nice service, decent food, good drinks and the possibility to order extra. I like the feel of this bar/coffeehouse/restaurant,... Also recommandable is a get together with friends in the afternoon and start with a extended apero!!

Very trendy and lounge atmosphere. Never been dissappointed by the food or drinks. Their combo platters are definitely worth it. Do mind the opening hours!

We stop at this place from time to time when in Leuven. Never been dissappointed by thefood or drinks. The interiour is rather dark but in summer time you also can enjoy the outdoor seating in the Mechelsestraat.

We had lunch at Zoff on a pleasant Saturday afternoon. We had toasted sandwiches with a tuna salad and a glass of rose. Service was kind of slow, maybe because it was quite busy, however one could expect that on a Saturday afternoon in a lovely town as Leuven. Anyway, we had a capuccino afterwards and the bill was EUR... More

Place has a very trendy feel to it from the outside, always lots of people sitting outside. Inside is a bit dark. The food itself is okay, but very expensive: cheapest item on the menu is a rather bland minestrone for no less than 10 euros. In my opinion, there are far better options for typical Italian lunch dishes in... More

Authentic Italian lunch dishes, including fabolous antipasta plate. Cocktails are also top, try Zoff cocktail; busy, cosy place to start the evening...

Coming from an Italian family I have a good sense of quality of Italian food. I gave this place a chance when I got a Flair-coupon. Service was under average and pretty slow. Although we had a fixed menu, looking at the prices it seems a lot is asked for simple food like a bruschetta. The gnocchi we got were... More

We have been there about six times recently and it is amazing to see how everytime the waiters/waitresses are very bussy with mostly eachother. They have cultivated the "art" of ignoring custumors to a high level. Also, how can one spoil repeatedly an otherwise excellent capuciono by letting it wait so long on the counter that the foam turns flat... More

Zoff is situated in the Mechelsestraat. Probably the most intimate of Leuven's shopping district. The Mediterranean look and feel of the street comes alive at Zoff. You can go here for a coffee in the morning, but most locals go for a glass of prosecco at noon, accompanied with some great finger food. When the weather is good, you can... More

We visited this cosy Italian restaurant on a Saturday afternoon and it was full of people, but we managed to get a table for two without a reservation. The waitresses were friendly, but at first I was not impressed by the menu card, as it was only piadinas, paninis and pizzas. Thus we ordered a special Zoff selection for two,... More
