Description: In the middle of Ljubljana, only two steps away from all the tourist...
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 pizza just by the river

This place was recommended in my guide book as a place cooking great pizza. With the weather being nice when we visited we chose to sit outside. Ordering was fairly easy straightforward and the pizzas we ordered were huge and very nice. The local ale and both the pizzas were very reasonably priced... read more

It still is better than some other pizza places around but nothing really to rave about. Average menu, average taste.

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

We came here ready to eat,and left soooo full. Pizzas are big and loaded with toppings. We ate inside,which can be a little warm,but we should have made reservations our fault. Service is fast and friendly,and the wine selection is good. I would highly reccomend this place.

This pizzeria offers so many different kinds of pizzas ... It can be hard to choose at times. Not too expensive.

This pizza/salad place is very popular with students and businesses so it's usually pretty packed, especially around lunch time. You need to wait a minute or two to get a table, but nothing to serious. The pizzas are delicious. They offer gluten free dough and all sorts of funky tastes. The salads are not bad either.

After a 4 days of fine dinning exploring we wanted a pizza, a huge pace with very cool interior, helpful staff and big pizza with amazing taste, and the interesting thing, pizzeria was full and we get our order after a 5 minutes. On the end we had a calzone with nutella.

We tried Foculus based on its proximity to our hotel, as well as the trip advisor ratings. It seemed like a pretty popular place, with some nice outside dining spaces, so we even waited for a table. Our waiter was busy, running between inside tables and out, but or beers came cold. Our pizza, on the other hand, was very... More

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.
