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).

Good choice of vegetarian pizzas

This restaurant has a wide selection of pizzas and we came here as we noticed that there are also a great number of different kinds of vegetarian pizzas. We were happy with our choices and had no complaints in any respect with this restaurant.

First night in Ljunljana from Ity but not disappointed with the food. The pizzas were outstanding and the pastas very tasty, especialy the tagliatelle. A very nice waiter who spoke good English served us throughout, aleays saying "right away", to diligently deliver our every request. Good variety of local wines. We sat comfortably outside but interior is awe-inspiring with decorated... More

We quite like the pizza's served here - they appeal to our tastes. While the variety is not anything special, they consistently serve reasonable quality and have never disappointed us. Like many places in Ljubljana, they serve a natural lemonade made from freshly squeezed lemon and don't add any sugar. Just perfect for these hot summer days!

This restaurant is located in a quiet small street, and has a cute front terrasse lit by torches. The pizzas we had were absolutely delicious and huge! Strongly recommended if you are in Ljubljana.

We choose this restaurant mostly because it has a very good rating. This restaurant is always full with peoples. We waited more than half an hour for waitress to bring are menu lists. Drinks are reasonably priced. Then after a long time we got our pizzas. They were hardly warm. Sure pizza was big, but it was almost empty. Dough... More
