just great pizza and ambiance

The ambiance is excellent. The food is great and it is reasonably priced. My family loved it. Lunch was a longer wait than dinner as not much of the dining area was open for lunch. Yes, the pizza was so good we went twice!

If this is the best pizza in San Juan, I'd hate to see the rest. Went with my family and ordered a large Greek pizza (mozzarella, goat cheese, onions and olives) which was supposed to be thin crust. However, the crust was still thick and soggy. All the toppings just slid off. We also ordered raviolis with bolognese-- the pasta... More

There is always a wait to get in. It is a very small restaurant, but it is so worth it. I am from NY and pizza is my life and this doesn't disappoint.

The pizza and apps we got were very good, but there was a 45 minute wait when we got there. Definitely worth stopping by if there's less than a 15 minute wait but i could have found lots of other pizza places worth going to in those 45 minutes. There service is nice and accommodating, it is smaller inside than... More

I love the 7 cheese pizza. Most of the tapas are great. The fried ravioli are a must try. The service y is fast. The wait for a table is long but you can use the no wait app and keep janguin around san juan until ur table is ready. Extensive beer selection.

Loved the food but the space is a little small. Good variety of beers. Tried the pizza in the alfredo sauce and bacon is very good if you are an alfredo lover because it can be a little to strong flavor. Also tried the one with the carnitas and pico the gallo and it was my favorite because of the... More

There's a line out the door and you think, Is it really worth it? Yes, yes it is. We were aware of Pirilo the first day we arrived in San Juan, but the line was always so long. Finally, on our last night in town we decided to see what all the fuss was all about. Not only is the... More

We knew this was an Italian restaurant before we went and we still went. We had pizza that had to be handmade. Everything tasted so fresh. We also shared a sampler appetizer platter.. Also very very fresh tasting. The price was reasonable as well. Got in and seated quickly and the service was good. Nothing bad to say.
