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).

The service is quite fast, but the waiters aren't the friendliest ones, probably because the place is always so full that they don't have time to slow down a bit. Food is not a surplus but it's ok for a reasonable price. In my opinion the only dish that is standing out and worth ordering it would be pizza with... More

Great place, also for a big company. Over 60 kinds of pizza, for any taste. Amazing recipes. Right place to meet with friends after a good night out. But can't give a maximum grade, cause salads here aren't really good, salad with shrimps once wasn't really fresh. Even though from all my visits to there I never been disappointed with... More

If you wish a budget and relatively good quality pizza- this is the place! The only thing which didn't work out for us was that the place was crouded with noisy students. Other thatn that the pizza is ok.

Very nice place inside, outside not so much because it smells of garbage. You can choose between many kind of pizzas or salads. Some staff isn't kind, specially if you are a student, but you get your order really fast. Pizzas are pretty big.
