Our grandma Kate who was from the village of Velo Grablje, was passing a street in the old part of Hvar over hundred years ago when she heard from a nearby inn someone calling the name Alviž (Venetian version of the name Aloysius), she then decided, as she was expecting a baby that if it was to be a boy – Alviz would be his name. That is how our grandfather was named – Alviž; many years later hebought a house that is now well known as ‘Bistro Alviž’! In 1989 his grandson, Vjekoslav Alviž, initially opened as a creperie, that at the time was a real hitwith the younger generations. As the creperie became more popular the menu beganto grow, primarily with pizzas! Vjeko learned the art of making good pizzas whilst working as a student during the summer months for the now old ‘Pizzeria Miko’, one of the first pizza places in the whole of Dalmatia, it had a secret of making good pizzas that Vjeko then learnt; and even today our pizzas areconsidered by many to be the best in town!
