We stopped for a quick lunch at this restaurant (one of hundreds in the very tourist populated old city). Surprisingly, both service and the food choices were above expectations. We ordered some different items (pizza, pasta, lasagna) and all were good. Even the prices were...More

This is a charming pizza restaurant with a great menu, vibrant atmosphere and on a great corner location. We really enjoyed our meal and had to go back a second time.

I had visited here back in 1995 when let’s say the country was going though a bit of a tough time and thought that it would only be the right thing to do and drop by. I can happily say that it hasn’t lost any...More

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.
