We waited more than 30 min for someone to show up and address our table (although the place wasn't crowded and waiters were walking back and forth). We felt unwanted there and walked away. Very disappointing. Wouldn't recommend this place.

The Galija restaurant is located in the city center, near the Marmontova street. Uniquely decorated (all in wood :)), it offers great service and even better pizza. I would definitely recommend this one to all locals and tourists.

There's a good reason this place is always busy and location has little to do with it. Yes, they may be the only pizzeria in the palace area, but you can get pizza at a few different places in the area as well.

Was very impressed with this place, despite visiting quite late in the evening. They quickly showed us to a table and took our order. We watched them bake the pizzas in their open oven. The food was great and plentiful! Don't have a pizza before...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.
