We had a great experience and delicious pizza here. Wood fire oven, lots of varieties to choose from. Pizzas were huge. My daughter picked one and they ended up being out of one ingredient so they gave her another large pizza for the prize of a small! Service was friendly and prompt. Fun atmosphere. We visited on a night that... More

I came to Ljubljana on a business trip and found Foculus on one of my first nights here. It is centrally located and offers pizza. My first meal the service was average and the pizza, while tasty was a bit under cooked. I returned a couple more times and the service and pizza were good. The last time I returned... More

Nice and cozy place, but if you don't like cheesy 80's pop music then stay away! The salads are enormous - one salad bowl would easily feed four people in my opinion. Great choice of pizza - particularly good for veggie options. By no means the best pizza I've ever had - too soggy for that - but tasty and... More

We spent six nights in Ljubljana, and we ate at Foculus on three of them. It's that amazing. Get the Lucifer, a salad for two and the house bottle of red wine. Amazing!!!!!!!

This restaurant have really amazing pizzas and really tasty salads. It is like 5 min from the center, a bit hidden but so worth it to try it. Specially the salads, I really enjoy it ! The interior it is really pleasant, if you go there with nice weather you can sit outside too.

We turned up to this very busy pizzeria and were treated brilliantly. Nothing was too much trouble, despite asking for a pizza to be half plain and half with tuna for our kids to share, they took the order without batting an eyelid. The pizzas were delicious and we felt so Welcome!

This is a must-do for pizza lovers visiting the city. The building is quaint, on s beautiful scenic alley- and the pizzas are to die for. As for size, well don't order the large if you plan on eating again that day!

With some friends, we wanted to toast to a birthday in a casual and comfortable setting. We had some nice food and then cut the cake we brought there too. The staff was very helpful and welcoming in accommodating us. Each time going there, Foculus is a reliable, friendly and good place to stop by in Ljubljana. Thank you!

When we entered in Foculus, we were really surprised with how big the place is. We were served by very cheerful staff. Menu offers large choice of pizzas, about 50. They are excellent and made in bread oven in front of you. Prices are very accetable for city centre of Ljubljana. Only one disadvantage is that you can't order anything... More

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).
