Went last night. Started with tasty fresh Greek salad and then a pizza each. You need to have a good appetite as they are large. It was busy but the service was very good. With 2 beers and a small water, the whole thing came...More

Perfect pizza from the wood fired oven. Textbook crust and deliciously thin and crispy toppings, just the way it's supposed to be. Large sizes so we shared 2 amongst 3 and had a salad. Some staff were a little grumpy and weren't trying too hard...More

Great pizzas and reasonable pasta. I shall no doubt come back for pizza. Pasta was ok - (large portion), salads very fine. Wine was good. Service quick. The waiters are not smiley people but they are efficient and they listen. This is by no means...More

First time I've ever written a review. The pizza was so good it inspired me to. Just had a simple margarita pizza. Best pizza I've had in a very long time.

Delicious starter of shared hams, cheeses, olives, anchovies, capers and pâté. Great location in old pArt of town. Friendly service and huge portions! Not cheap but given the amount of food the price was fair.

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.
