It's OK

It was recommended to me as the best pizza in Zagreb but I don't share the opinion. The type of ham they use is a deal-breaker for me. Plus, it's always crowded so there is a lot of noise and people are waiting for tables so you feel like you can't really take your time and enjoy but must finish... read more

Waiters were polite, attentive and cheerful, despite the fact that the place was full of guests. Our food came out very quick and was delicious ! Great pizza place !

Best pizza in Zagreb by far... I come here often with family, and everything is perfect. Also the staff is very nice and always easy to talk to! I will be coming back time and time again

We came there by recommendation, and I was disappointed. The pizza I took was "prosciutto". Prosciutto was ok, (no more than ok), cheese was also ok, pizza dough was pretty much bad, it was overdone, almost toasted. Only good thing was wine. I took red wine which was great. Also the good thing is they have open bottled wines and... More

They only serve pizza (no salad, dessert, etc) at this restaurant but it is delicious! The newly renovated location is really clean and the service is always friendly. Great selection of pizza, alcohol, and non-alcoholic drinks. Nothing fancy but great for a relaxing,casual meal.

A lot of variables come into play to make good pizza. But the most difficult one to get right -- by far -- is the crust. And this place gets it Napoli-perfect: paper-thin, light and crispy, but still foldable. Also key is just the right amount of sauce ... on the lighter side. Atmosphere is family-style pizzeria. Service is fast,... More

Nothing beats up this pizza! Crispy, with perfect local ingredients (buffalo mozzarella, Dalmatian prosciutto, fresh veggies). My favorite ones are Karijola & Bacon. Although a bit more expensive than other pizza places, it is worth. Would highly recommend!

I was in Karijola few times and pizza was good every time. They say it's the best pizza in Croatia but I can't agree with them. It's very good pizza but I tried better one (Casa Vechia in Biograd, for example). They have good sauce, the duff is also good (too thin for me), but more than one third of... More

Firstly, you have to know that the pizzeria I am about to review moved to a location very close to the old address, the new address is Badaliceva 18 which is situated directly at the corner of Kranjceviceva and Badaliceva streets. The new location is newly furbished, quite spacious and cozy. If you like your pizza thin and crusty, this... More
