Went because of prior reviews and glad I did. Upstairs is defiantly the place to sit. Love the fact that you can order half-and-half pizzas since there are so many creative options to choose from. And there are also some premium toppings you can add, which we did. Friendliest service in San Juan. Only slight drawback is its a bit... More

The pizza is some of the best in town. Unfortunately, twice a year, the restaurant takes part in a street festival. This means that huge speakers are blaring down the street, which make ever watching television impossible in our living room. I went the first year to addrew this issue with the owner, had a civil conversation, and then went... More

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

charming place, great food, good and fast service, reasonable prices. Went to days in a row :) For tapas we tried "lazitos" (delicious!), "buñuelos de yautía" (they tasted like the ones my grandma used to make me when I was little, loved them!), "calamares fritos" (not as crunchy as I like :( but still tasted good, "chorizo al vino" (really...

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!
