We had dinner here on our first night in Split. After spending the after at the beach with the kids this place was perfect. Good pizzas and beer choices. The kids ate nearly their entire pizza so it must be good food.

Great place if you're looking for something comfortable and warm looking! They serve the best pizzas in town. Not only are they delicious but they also come to your table quite quickly. Ravioli and lasangna are tasty but the portions are small. Pleasant waiters and music. The inside of the restaurant is better to eat in rather than outside. They... More

Take it from a local, I lived in Split for 25 years and Galija always had the best pizza in the city, it is a mid range and it will offer you better quality of food than some of the more expensive restaurants in the city.

I am local and decided to sit and have a pizza with my kids. Terrible mistake... Tough dough, tastless ingredients, high price. I underatand that prices in the city should be higher but the quality should be high as well. Only good thing is location. I would avoid it at all costs.

Located in heart of main pedestrian area with great pizza and a bit slower service. Ideal for non smokers.

The restaurant is nice, it's well located, near the Riva, and pizza is very good, real italian pizza. The service however, was a little slow. The price is higher than other pizzerias in the city, but the quality is also higher So if you're not on a budget, and are not in a hurry, I highly advise it

Excellent food, we both had pizzas and they were outstanding! It's a shame about the service which was very poor and disappointing, we weren't seated and had to wait 10 minutes to eventually find our own table, and waited a further 10 minutes for a menu. Poor service continued from there, and we waited 25 minutes to get the bill... More

We have ordered couple of pizzas and meat lasagne, and I can't really find anything wrong with it. Crunchy dough, good quality toppings and well seasoned. I wouldn't say it was the best pizza I ever had, but it is anyway not the kind of food that would make some huge impression on me. I tried also a bit of... More

This spot had the feel of an old tavern and you can see them making the wood-fired pizza right here. It was really good and my husband enjoyed the beer as well!

Pizzeria „Galija“ is located in the very centre of the historic part of Split and close to the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace. It is the ideal place to rest and enjoy delicious food, after a long stroll through the meandering streets of the old city. The pizzeria was named after the galley, a ship powered by oarsmen, and used at first mainly as a merchant vessel and later on in maritime battles.

Today, we imagine a different galley – one that is an oasis of peace, relaxation and good food, run by our carefully selected staff who is always there for you. Pizzeria „Galija“ is well known for its cosy and intimate interior inspired by the warmth and golden-glow of a wood-fired oven where the flames haven’t ceased to burn since “Galija” opened its door for the first time.

Our pizzas are made using the original recipe from 1980, that has time after time delighted the taste buds of our customers. The interior is decorated with natural materials, wood and stone. Coupled with details like the antique amphora, the space exudes warmth and rustic charm. The atmosphere is enhanced by the terrace overlooking Split’s historic core.

On the „Galija’s“ menu you will find a succulent selection of pizzas from a wood-fired oven, meat, fish and vegetable dishes, pasta dishes and gnocchi as well as deserts made from well-tried and recognizable recipes.
