I was sitting in La Taberna Lupulo drinking some Puerto Rican craft beers and wanted some pizza for dinner, so I brought up TripAdvisor on my phone to find the best pizza nearby. I like TripAdvisor, but many of the reviewers either have unrealistic expectations or are just overly critical in general. I read a few of the recent reviews... More

We had dinner here one evening - be prepared to wait - it's very popular. The pizza was good- the sangria was even better! After paying for hotel meals it was nice to have good food at an affordable price.

I just left this restaurant. First off I had the best piña colada of my life!!! The pizza and lasagna were excellent. It was worth the cab fare. Great place to have dinner!

I've been in Pirilos many times for dinner. It's one of my favorite restaurants in Old San Juan for its excellent pizzas and affordable places. They have two floors, I prefer the upper one, usually not that crowdie and with very high ceilings. I'd advise you to make a reservation because from Thursday to Sunday it's always full...Ah..and gotta try... More

We had the Pampas Pizza and it was awesome. They have an excellent selection of artisanal beers, somewhat expensive, but worthy. It is the third time I visited this place and the atmosphere is always great.

Our tired and thirsty tribe had a fabulous pizza, La Gregia -- featuring tender onions, Kalamata olives and goat cheese on a crisp and flavorful crust. The pasta bolognese was also well prepared and tasty. The beer selection is diverse and welcome -- but we all loved the local IPA on tap (Galleon) so much that we didn't stray.
