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).

Great beer selection and good wood-fired pizzas. An astounding amount of choices on the menu for different topping combinations. Fresh, good ingredients. Nothing fancy, no frills. But you'll feel relaxed, well-fed, and not altogether unhappy that you didn't go to that Michelin-starred place instead.

What a crazy Pizza place :-))) my very best recommendation for great pizza. They served us in 10 min with superhero pizza and good beer. The pizza is fresh made from a wide selection of options. And a wide selection of different drinks, beer and wine.The guests are mostly young people, same with the music style.

Nice Pizza and good value. I don't agree with some of the other reviews which say it is the best ever but it is still good with fresh ingredients.
Service was fine. Got a table easy by just walking in. Nice atmosphere and only 5 minute walk from main square
Didn't realize until we got there that they don't offer any pasta dishes. Just pizza and salad

They offer a lot of different pizzas. Ok but not the best you can get in city center. Had quite some problems with reaching hygiene standards in the past year.

I eat there only pizzas. They are just heaven and I am really pick with them. The ambient is fantastic. Lovely, romantic, in a basement, great lighting. Usually you get a table, but can happen, you have to wait. Staff is always friendly.
