Description: Pizzeria „Galija“ is located in the very centre of the historic part of Split and close to the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace. It is the ideal place to rest and enjoy delicious food, after a long stroll through the meandering streets of the old city. The pizzeria was named after the galley, a ship powered by oarsmen, and used at first mainly as a merchant vessel and later on in maritime battles. Today, we imagine a different galley – one that is an oasis of peace, relaxation and good food, run by our carefully selected staff who is always there for you. Pizzeria „Galija“ is well known for its cosy and intimate interior inspired by the warmth and golden-glow of a wood-fired oven where the flames haven’t ceased to burn since “Galija” opened its door for the first time. Our pizzas are made using the original recipe from 1980, that has time after time delighted the taste buds of our customers. The interior is decorated with natural materials, wood and stone. Coupled with details like the antique amphora, the space exudes warmth and rustic charm. The atmosphere is enhanced by the terrace overlooking Split’s historic core. On the „Galija’s“ menu you will find a succulent selection of pizzas from a wood-fired oven, meat, fish and vegetable dishes, pasta dishes and gnocchi as well as deserts made from well-tried and recognizable recipes.

I did not like the food at all, but service was great. The atmphosphere was pretty good, but it took long time to get our food and drink, and when we got it, I am not saying it was some kind of disaster, but it wast as good as we expected.

Very popular and affordable pizza place, serving affordable pizzas from their wood oven.
Large pizza menu, also offering a few pasta dishes. No other options, though.
The place is usually packed every night, so the service may be a bit slow at times.

One of the best pizzas in Split. Great location, great staff, very friendly. There is a big choice of different pizzas but you cannot pick a wrong one, all of them are great.

We wanted to eat outside, but the patio was already full so we opted for a table inside. And, it's the inside (as well as the food) that sets this place apart from the rest. It feels like a friendly pub inside, an atmosphere that we wouldn't have been in outside. We were seated and ordered from the extensive pizza menu fairly quickly. The waiters were all busy, but the service didn't suffer because of it. Both pizzas - I had an asparagus and parmesan cheese pizza and my husband had a meat-feast type pizza, were excellent. I struggled to eat all of mine as it was quite big. It was full of locals and tourists alike - there were several children in the restaurant enjoying meals with their families. Highly recommend this place for families and adult-only diners.

Popular restaurant with a pub atmosphere and good service. Excellent thin crust pizza (with a good chew) with fresh tomatoes. Maybe the best tasting pizza that we had in Croatia. Loved the pizza bites - salty and buttery.
