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).

Solid alternative for gluten free pizza

It has a Schaer version of gluten free pizza with the price of a gluten pizza but again you can put almost all the ingredients as on wheat pizza. Location is good as well the ambient for a quick meal and a chat.

Around lunch time and afternoon, place is extremely busy (full of students) and you wait for your meal so long. Pizza is nothing special, however they are flexible for vegan options (they also offer vegan cheese on pizza).

I returned to Foculus after several years because I remembered it as a great choice for tasty pizzas. Unfortunately I was quite disappointed with the vegetarian pizza I ordered; the dough was mushy and the whole pizza was very bland. I won't be going back.

I was there with friends. The pizza was good and also the service. The restaurant is welcoming but personally I found lack of lighting but anyway, I would recommend it.

Very easy to find, a street away from the Kongresni Trg. Open everyday. The atmosphere is really pleasuable, they always have good songs on their playlists. The pizza we ordered was with calamari and garlic/parsley sauce - it was more than enough for two persons. I recommend this restaurant; it's very delicious, not expensive, and always available.

Ambiance: simple, functional Service: truly exceptional specially with overflowing guests....literally the folks at the joint seem to be working with clockwork precision...be it taking the orders...baking the pizza...delivering at the table...we are truly impressed with the rythm without losing the attention of the patron Food: undoubtedly the best and fresh pizza that we have savored in Old Town...

Great pizza, no doubt, one of my favorites in the city. There is one waiter in particular who is quite rude and whenever we get him to serve us, we feel like leaving. He also looks unkempt which is not appealing for someone handing you food. He also drops pizza in front of you and runs off before you finish... More

The pizza was good and the prices fair, but this was one of the worst service I have ever received. The waiter got angry for us asking questions and got really rude. So much that we really wanted to leave but have already got part of our order. We were all very disappointed.

Foculus offers one of the widest ranges of pizzas, complemented with all kinds of dough (gluten-free, wholewheat, etc, without surcharge). I ate Kavalo which is very fresh and delicious. Ambient is very relaxed with serving staff always in a good mood. You must check the ceiling once you enter Foculus! Salads are not to be left out.... I highly recommend... More
