Description: In the middle of Ljubljana, only two steps away from all the tourist attractions, there is one of the most visited places in the city - pizzeria FoculuS. The name of the pizzeria is a tribute to exceptional history of the location - the Latin word "foculus" means "a metal container for burning coal, wood, etc.". In the past, ancient Romans used to gather here, and today, it is a place for everybody to enjoy. The location of the pizzeria is still one of those magical places from which a 5-minute walk will take you to the greatest cultural, historical and artistic attractions of Ljubljana. Only from here, you will be able to follow the steps of the ancient Romans, the great Slovene architect Joze Plecnik or the latest hits of world-famous musicians. The selection of pizzas we are offering is almost unlimited and all of them get this delicious brownish crust in our wood-fired beech pizza oven. There are 66 different types of pizzas including the tempting vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, wholewheat and even sweet ones. In addition to pizzas, we also offer our guests 14 different kinds of delicious fresh salads. All pizza dough is prepared with organic flour (BIO certificate).

Came here due to a recommendation of a local friend.
The large pizza Bufala was tasty and enough for one person. All three of us were happy with the food and the service was friendly and quick.
Price was good for the quality.

Been there first days of September during a trip in Slovenia. Me and my family (three kids) were looking for an easy place, especially for my children, sometimes annoying for food! I tried 4 cheese pizza and it was good, one of my sons tried a funny pizza with a Mickey Mouse shape :-). The waiter who served us was brilliant, kind and fast. The environment was quiet even if several people inside and we appreciated that. We've been there the following day and no changes, except for the waiter who was not at the same level of the first one but anyway good. Very nice place!

We tried to visit here during a recent trip to the city. We had heard that they had good vegan options, so were excited to try it out.

When we arrived the restaurant was pretty quiet. A waiter pointed to some menus and told us to sit down. We waited for 20-25 mins and no one came to take our order. We tried to get the attention of the waiters, but they either didn't see us or just ignored us. We left without having any food.

Huge selection of pizza's available. The large is VERY large and is the biggest pizza I have eaten in my life. I think most people would be satisfied with a regular or 1 large pizza between 2 or 3 people.

We went to foculus with 3 kids. The kids had pizzas (of course) and we had salad. The food was super tasty. We order one gluten free pizza and it was extremely delicious (no leftovers...).
The waiters were extremely nice.
Thumbs up for pizzeria foculus !!!
