Pizzeria "Fortuna" Slivnica Gornja Reviews
Pizzeria-restaurant 'Fortuna' under the radar Nov 16, 2014
"Fortuna" is located at an unfortunate spot. It lies at the local road that leads from Posedarje towards the island of Pag. Posedarje, on the other hand, lies at the coastal road ca. 20 km away from the city of Zadar. "Fortuna"'s hometown is called Slivnica Gornja, and is as much under the radar as a village can be.
From outside, when you look at it, it's an inconspicuous one-storey-house with big windows and a parking lot in front of it. There's a sign at the road and on the house, so you really can't miss it. Inside, it's just as inconspicuous. Basic furniture and almost no decoration leaves a somewhat sad impression. The interior is bare and spacious with just the tables and chairs in it, and the occasional plant in a pot. Really nothing spectacular or cosy, just very basic.
"Fortuna"'s sign says it's a pizzeria, but it's also a restaurant and a bar. A local one, for sure, because here you'll find the neighborhood's people coming to pick up their to-go-pizza, have a coffee and read the newspaper or have a drink with friends. As a local, you will always meet someone familiar. But don't expect a noisy, buisy atmosphere, quite the contrary, it's calm and mostly less frequented.
Which is a pity, because the food is awesome! It's among the best foods I've ever had. Despite the menu being just as uncreative as the setup. "Fortuna" offers a variety of pizzas (baked in a fireplace), the traditional "ispod peke" ("under the bell") dishes and grilled meat and fish. That's about it. But it's tasty, it's fresh, it's just superyummy.
As a tourist in the area you will probably never be directed to this restaurant. But, I say, give it a try. There's no crowd and the food is affordable and tasty, it's clean and the staff is very nice.
