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

I went twice to Zoff and both times the place was packed. The choice of food looks nice even tastes nice but both times I was very, very sick afterwards. It's obvoious that something in the food doens(t agree with me. I'll never go again!

Recommended by some friends who've eaten there before, so looking for a quick lunch, Zoff is the place to go. Very busy during lunchtime so be prepared to wait a little, but it's worth it. Great selections on the menu, you will not be disappointed. Nice friendly atmosphere, worth a visit.

I went to have lunch here twice and did not like it at all. The food is too oily, not that good a quality, and way way too expensive. The atmosphere is too posh and the crowd too "m'as-tu vu?". The boss (I think her name is Graziela) is nice, but most of her staff is just plain impolite. I... More

Its a very cozy restaurant with an original interieur. In the back there is a beautiful terrace. The restaurant is situated in one of Leuven most attractive streets. Its an ideal place to meet with friends for tapas or something light like a salad (I wouldnt recommend the bruchetta's those can be made by a cavemen's wife).

This is not really a restaurant but more a trendy lunch or meeting place that offer small Italian snacks like salads, crostinis, pastas, etc. The place is nicely designed from the wall paper to the menus. It is small and there is often no place, tables are so close to one another you can follow the conversation of your neighbours.... More
