Excellent food, excellent experience.

Went for lunch at about 11 and there was no waiting for anything. We had a tapas meat platter as an appetizer - it was great. 3 different types of pizza and all were top quality and flavor. Reasonable prices and 2 bottles of beer for 5$. Going to be hard to beat.

This place is in an amazing building. I had the pesto pizza which was good. My friends were raving about the sangria. Overall a great dinning experience. I would go back and suggest this place to anyone. The staff was great and helpful.

I went to Pirilo for the first time last year, after a friend recommended it, and since then have been here three more times. This restaurant, at the corner of Fortaleza and Tanca streets, has two floors. Personally, I like to sit on the second floor which is better illuminated and has taller ceilings. The first floor feels crowded, and... More

My family and I came here to celebrate my cousin's graduation. Waiters are friendly, food is very good and not too expensive. It has that "Old San Juan" feeling that I love. The building is lovely and well decorated. I do love this place.

Went here with my wife after seeing the queues outside. We put our names down at 8pm and were told to come back at 9. Walked straight into bar next door and had some lovely inexpensive wine. Anyhow, we shared a pizza and a bottle of wine and we were really impressed with the staffs attention and knowledge. The pizza... More

My favorite pizza place in the island! Live the margarita pizza and croquetas de yautia! Yum! The only down side sometimes is the waiting. But that tell you something 😁

The newly open location in Ocean Park is a nice place to have a drink and eat pizza with friends. Even though it's a nice location it has limited parking space and can get a little cramp in the interior. With a wide variety of pizza choices there is something for every taste bud. Make sure to get early since... More

Awesome find amongst the craziness of the people up and down the streets. The pizza ingredients were fresh and the service was quick + friendly. We got this recommendation for a few locals and had a delicious meal.

We walked past this place our first day in Old San Juan. We looked it up on Trip Advisor and decided to go. The first night the wait was almost 2 hours so we ended up down the street. We decided to try again the next night and got there before 6 to get our name on the wait list.... More
