On a recent trip to Leuven, looking for a tasty meal with two colleagues, we went to Muntstraat, the main restaurant street in this attractive town. Surprisingly for a Wednesday evening, there were very few people out and we liked the look of Ascoli of all options best. We were very pleased with our choice of restaurant and enjoyed delicious...

Restaurant service was excellent however if want somewhere quiet this isn't the place. Lots of echo of plates being collected and crashed. Food was nice but nothing special. Pasta sauce was very watery and tasteless as with the steak sauce. A nice touch to the meal is that they bring you a little taste appetiser while you wait for the... More

Unfriendly staff! Pizza was okay or average. Mozarella salad was not good. The mozarella was not fresh nor tasty.

Our birthday diner at Ascoli was ruined by the unfriendly staff, who insulted us at several occasions, sniffed and sighed when asked for something as simple as a spoon or another drink. The food is OK, as long as you don't look at how much you're paying for it. Many better restaurants in the neighbourhood that are actually willing to... More

After a few dinners at Flemish restaurants, we preferred something Italian. We knew nothing about this restaurant but found the menu tantalizing. The service was efficient and friendly; the staff, Italian. We sampled various dishes, and enjoyed each. There is a good wine list, and an extensive menu. I would return.

Visiting Leuven with my daughter as she has been at the University here. Ate outside at the Ascoli on a very busy night in town with most restaurants full or nearly full. Limited choice on the menu, I went for a 4 cheese tagliatelle and my daughter went for a mussels based pasta dish. We were provided with bread, olives... More

We went in as a family group with 2 small kids. The food was mediocre - for example the pizzas had no real mozzarella but the bases were nice and light. At no point did we receive a smile from any of the 3 staff that served us. Mostly the waiting staff just stood around scowling. We won't be back... More

We loved the Escalope du Chef, but our pizza was a bit lacking in flavour. I was a little bit shocked at being charged 5 euros for a small bottle of still water (in Australia water is always complimentary at restaurants). There were not enough tables for couples, which appeared to be the majority of customers, so we were all... More

Friday early evening, no reservation but a good table in the back. The waitress was helpful in explaining some items on the menu and what can be recommended is the Bauletti Adriatico: getting near to haute cuisine! Paying; please no Visa -- oops?

This is an average Italian restaurant. Some things are quite good, some are not to repeat. In my case, out of a slice of pizza, a starter, a dish and a dessert, the only thing worth mentioning was the dish (pasta with mushrooms). All the rest wasn't anything to recommend. I was really disappointed with tiramisu. House wine, both white... More
