Afternoon snack

Two yummy bruschetta, two not so yummy bruschetta and 4 really dry olive Ascolane (mine are ten times... read more

One more example of how you can charge anything in Belgium if only you look trendy and quality is not too bad. This restaurants presents itself as real Italian but panini and tramezzini really don't cost EUR13-15 in Italy, and they don't look like a salad either...... Not to mention the mini pizzas with maxi prices....... We had the tagliatelle... More

I just loved the food here. This restaurant is small too like most in Leuven but serves great food. The food is cooked so meticulously and well presented. Worth the value for money!

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
