I have been here already a couple of times. The food is always great, friendly service. I recommend the padana.

I have been to this restaurant a few times. It has an interesting Italian menu and a nice ambience. Service is OK -- they do not care too much about solo visitors. The food is ok, nothing exceptional. Overall, an average experience.

We were passing by, searching for a quick meal. We tried the mix of cheese, pizza and vegetables, well presented and nice food.

Zoff offers simple but creative Italian flavours well presented. The staff are friendly and efficient. The whole picture is located in the charming Mechelsestraat in the heart of Leuven.

Zoff is situated in a pedestrial street. They offer a terrace on teh street and in the small garden. Service is friendly, when crowded sometimes a bit slower, but no problem, it's a nice place for 'people watching'. The food is italian, you should try one of the two 'taglieri': shared food platters with cold meat, vegetables, antipasti, pizzetta, ...... More

I'll keep it short: Great food, beautiful place, great choice, fresh ingredients, great staff. If you want to go for the better choice of Italian food in Leuven, search no more!

This is not just a pizzeria, this is a small, cosy and trendy Italian style restaurant. Original dishes in an original setting. Situated in the center of Leuven, close to the lively squares and shopping streets. Restaurant is very popular and quite small, so will always be full on week-end evenings.

This catchy Italian restaurant – as it advertises itself – has indeed a catchy trendy interior, a kind of place-m’as-tu-vu where young hipsters like to hang out to say they’ve been there, but has unfortunately bad food (but who cares, you’ve been there and joined the hype, right?). Very expensive salads look like they’re thrown on a wooden plate, with... More

Zoff is already for years an excellent trendy place for nice Italian food in Leuven. Seventies, lush interior. More a breakfast an lunch place than a place for dinner. Legendary plates with anti-pasti. For breakfast, the fritata padana is recommended.

My partner and I enjoyed our lunch at Zoff - We ordered the shared platter for 2 and it was huge, fresh and delicious! They were very busy as it was a sunny day so outside was packed, the waiters though busy were not super friendly/attentive. All in all we enjoyed our experience.
