The best homemade Ravioli. Just delicious restaurant. The next night I went back and had spaghetti Bolognese which was great as well. Nice homey restaurant. Highly recommend.

This place was near our hotel and came recommended. The pizzas were made in a wood fired oven. Nice thin crust and tasty toppings (though why some people smothered them in tomato ketchup, I don't know!!!-very bizarre). Beer was good. Service was quick and efficient....More

We had an enjoyable meal at Galija. It was an incredibly busy night but we were still served quickly and the staff were great. The food was promptly served and pretty good quality. Would recommend it.

We were staying at nearby Divota Hotel/Apartment . As it was raining hard we asked for a nearby restaurant. We were referred to the Galija which turned out to be an excellent choice. The food, mostly Italian was good and fresh, and not really expensive....More

We visited Galija three times after our local rep advised us to. Used by tourists and locals it was always busy. The pizza oven is in full view in the bar area with the kitchen tucked around a corner. More seating than we had originally...More

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.
