Went for a birthday dinner with my girlfriend after reading many reviews. We were not disappointed. The empanadas were tasty and the pizza reminded me of NYC pizza where we are from. Small intimate place. Nice selection of beer and drinks. Look forward to going back every time in the area!

My family of 4 had dinner here while in San Juan this past April. Like many places in the heart of SJ, it is tucked away on a cobblestone road and has wonderful atmosphere and presence. The staff was incredibly engaging and friendly, explaining all of the menu items to us that we didn't recognize. As for the food...I ate... More

This is why I love Tripadvisor. We were shopping in Old San Juan and wanted to find someplace to have lunch. Discovered this restaurant on my Tripadvisor mobile app. It was only a block from the store we were in. We only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. The pizza was amazing. Loved, loved, loved the crust.... More

Great variety of pizzas. The Pirilo pizza was the best pizza I have ever had! Totally recommend. Only bad thing was how busy they were. There was a line out the door. We ordered to go instead, but totally worth it.

In a summary, the food is very good. If you like to enjoy a good pizza, this is a very good place and the ambiance is rustic-welcoming...No complaints about the food, may be, that the small pizza is expensive for the price you pay... But, in terms of the tip, without asking or letting you know, they charge a 15%... More

Great pizza especially the carbonara and arugula. I wish they'd bring back ginger beer had it just once. De octopus is a must or the chorizos. Extremely busy on mid day and weekends avoid those hours. Overall great pizza.

We chose this place based on its good reviews on trip advisor and it did not disappoint! We went on Friday so we had to wait thirty minutes, went next door to the Pub and had a few drinks. We sat upstairs on the 2nd floor, which was much nicer then the 1st floor. The service was great and the... More
