Description: In the middle of Ljubljana, only two steps away from all the tourist attractions, there is one of the most visited places in the city - pizzeria FoculuS. The name of the pizzeria is a tribute to exceptional history of the location - the Latin word "foculus" means "a metal container for burning coal, wood, etc.". In the past, ancient Romans used to gather here, and today, it is a place for everybody to enjoy. The location of the pizzeria is still one of those magical places from which a 5-minute walk will take you to the greatest cultural, historical and artistic attractions of Ljubljana. Only from here, you will be able to follow the steps of the ancient Romans, the great Slovene architect Joze Plecnik or the latest hits of world-famous musicians. The selection of pizzas we are offering is almost unlimited and all of them get this delicious brownish crust in our wood-fired beech pizza oven. There are 66 different types of pizzas including the tempting vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, wholewheat and even sweet ones. In addition to pizzas, we also offer our guests 14 different kinds of delicious fresh salads. All pizza dough is prepared with organic flour (BIO certificate).

I'm not really a big fan of eating delicious pizza while listening to '99 luftballons' or the Titanic soundtrack, but I guess that's a matter of taste. What you can't argue about is that this place serves one of the pizzas you will ever eat. The prices are very reasonable and the smiles are for free. The waiter always had one eye on our table, and he was really friendly and humble. If you are in Ljubljana, and you are not looking for a fancy 7 course meal, but for quality food with decent prices in a cozy and comfortable setting, stop looking, this is the place to be!

Tucked away from main tourist area in an alley this is one of the best pizzas I have ever had. Great choice of pizzas and really tasty. This is a pizza specialist place and not an Italian so no pasta dishes on menu, just salads as alternative.
Appears popular with younger crowd (offers special student deals) but is highly recommended for all guests! Great banana split too!

Visited three times during our visit. Even the first time our waiter was exceptionally friendly, the pizza amazing, the service fast, and the beer cold. The second time our waiter even remembered us, we got the same fantastic experience in terms of service and food as before. Tried several types of pizza, each of them unique and delicious, the salads too, portions so big we were offered to have the leftovers packed up and take them home. The third time we were again stunned by their hospitality, their friendly tone and the complimentary drinks we reicieved. The atmosphere is also convenient, the interiors are spacious, the terrace is nicely arranged. Among all the wonderful Slovenian restaurants we visited, Foculus is outstanding.

The pizza in this place is just amazing. They always have fresh ingredients, organic dough and the option to choose a whole wheat dough. The service is very nice and the place is always open. The pizzas are just great and I would definitely recommend.
