The best pizza in Zagreb

There are a lot of great pizza places in Zagreb. Karijola, however, is the best. They serve the finest crispy (thin crust) pizza. Please note that their menu is rather short (they offer a choice of about a dozen different pizzas) and that their prices are on the higher end.

Very simple as it should be with pizza! 6 sorts of pizza, with excellent thin dough, salsa, mozzarella and some topings that vary. But this is how the original pizza was and should be! Just one size, medium I would say, plenty for one person.

Wow pizza in this place is awesome, try margarita with bufalo mozzarella and extra olive oil (spicey-with pepperoncini). And...prices are justified, don't be alarmed. ;)

For me it is one of the best in Zagreb and certanly the best in the center of the City in Vlaska street. I like shaddy terrace and quiet surroundings. Pretty good wine selection for Pizzeria. Pizzas are more expensive then in other pizza joints but still it it is good value for the Money.

Pizza is small and nothing spectacular so I ask myself than why they charge double than anywhere else in Zagreb, maybe becouse waiter was so extra not kind so they include it in a price. Here is my summary: This place is overrated.

We were two families with young children having dinner at Karijola. It was hot weather and the restaurant did not invest in any outdoor cooling equipments. The pizza was great, especially the Karijola one. The wooden oven gave the pizzas a great taste. The service was slow with only three people working there. We recommend it if you do not... More

Cozy atmosphere, great selection of pizza, but most importantly pizza is done to perfection! Super thin and tasty dough, my favorite topping was just tomato and buffalo mozzarella. Less is more! If you are in Zagreb you have to try it!

If you like thin crust pizza with great ingredients, this is the place. My favorite is the "baked tomatoes" pizza with cherry tomatoes and bacon, with some of their excellent home cooked tomato sauce extra. There are other really nice pizzerias in Zagreb (and some are cheaper), but we keep coming back to this one! Delicious.
