On visiting Louvain, we stumbled on this restaurant which is situated in a cosy shopping street, in front of an Italian specialities store (Same owners). The interior is very Italian and we were welcomed in a very very friendly way. The atmosphere is truly like one in pastery bar in Rome of Florence: excellent dishes but crowdy and very noisy....

I went to Zoff a few weeks ago after passing by the place for years. From the outside it looks really small with a strong focus on selling Italian dishes to go, but once inside, the restaurant is big, with a nice style and atmosphere. The Moscow Mule was good, the lasagna was very tasteful, and everybody around the table... More

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

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
