Fabolous place. We travel a lot, we've been to Italy numerous times, but this was one of the best pizzas we ever tasted. The waiteress was very polite and helpful. There was a genuine Carribean band called Rice and Beans playing 80ies hits, making special atmoshere. Brilliant male and female singer and also the rest of the band sounded great.... More

When we were on Vieques getting a beer the waitress was cool and when she found out we were going to San Juan she recommended we go to Pirilo Pizza Rustica because of the tapas, beers and pizza. She wrote it down for us. When we got to San Juan we told the concierge we were going there and he... More

My boyfriend and I had a date night at Pirilo while visiting San Juan. The beer selection was pretty good for the area, the empandadillas were tasty (especially the seafood), and the pizza looked and tasted great. I would highly recommend it!

Pirilo in located in old San Juan and has excellent italian food. It has a welcoming atmosphere and you feel like you are in Italy except most people are talking spanish. We ordered empanadas as a appetizer and they were awesome. We then moved on to pizza and enjoyed every bite. The waiters were helpful about the menu and about... More

My (now) husband took me here on the last night of our honeymoon. Food was great. Atmosphere couldn't have been more perfect. We ordered a bottle of wine that was suggested by the server and it didn't disappoint! We absolutely loved sitting upstairs and having a dimly lite room to enjoy our wine and each other that night. I was... More

We stopped here on our last night in Puerto Rico. It was an amazing experience!! The pizza was full of flavor and the quality was fantastic. Good prices too! Tip- ask to be seated upstairs!! We lucked out and got seated here without knowing how cool the second level was and loved it.
