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.

The restaurant is very nice and the pizza was excellent. It is in the city and not very expensive. I would definetly reccomend it to others.

We came here late one night just for pizza. The location is great, just on one of the main streets near the historical center. I thought the pizza was made with great care with fresh ingredients. The crust was chewy and very tasty. Many times the pizza sauce tastes as if it came from the can, this tasted fresh, at least it did tome that night. The local dark beer was a perfect complement to the pizza. All in all it was a great value.

Galija is best pizza place in centre of town Split. Service is very good, everything is clean and fair. Pizza is prepared in baker's oven and you and see a preparatin. If you want just a simple lunch in Split, pizza or salad, you can't go wrong with Galija.
