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).

Family and student friendly place - we come here often with our toddler. Nobody minds him bimbling around the tables, crayons and high chairs for kids are provided as well.
Low prices and large portions - you can jazz up yr pizza by paying extra for changing ordinary cheese for mozzarella, cheap ham for better quality ham etc.
The service is quick, even when the place is packed.
Do not expect a culinary miracle, but solid pizza grub.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Pizzas are what Foculus is all about. They have a huge variety of pizzas and one is better than the other... Meatlovers, vegetarians- they have it all. Service is good and the waiters are kind, the price is just right and you are one satisfied costumer after you finish your meal. I recommend it! :)

“The pizza restaurant in Ljubljana”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

In my opinion Foculus is the best pizza restaurant in Ljubljana. You can get lots of different types of pizza and salads. But don't expect a fancy restaurant.
It is always full of students that come for lunch from studding in National University Library (NUK).

“Not the same place I visited a year ago ”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

The pizzeria looks still well, but waiters forgot to greet us, no assistance to find a table, actually the city was crowded, but there were many tables free. Mess with the drinks, loud music trom large screen tv. Pizza dough not baked enough, although very thin. Basically a delusion.
