Best lunch at Il Pirata Gili T

Food was great, staff was friendly. Food was better for lunch than dinner. We went back several times for lunch.

It's a little hard to find, but worth the search. When you get there, it's also called "the pizza place. Pizza is handmade right in front of you and when it comes out of the oven, the chef slides it out and onto a plate and calls out "pizza!" The pizza is great and the pasta (we had the 4... More

I'm from Melbourne in Australia and we have some fantastic pizza restaurants but this find down an alley in Gili T best all of them. The pizza bases are fantastic so light and thin. The pasta is home made and el dente, perfect. Make sure you save room for the Nutella pizza, so delicious with a generous amount of Nutella.... More

Great staff, including the owner who personally came to table to welcome us, Il piarata was awesome! Best homemade pizza and pasta in Gili! All the ingredients fresh, wood oven, great flavors! Can't wait to try another combination of their pizzas...:)

The smell of the wood fired oven walking past was too hard to resist and I'm glad we went back to try it! Amazing pizza base, just like in Europe. Fluffy and light, very taste. If they put a bit more filling on the base it'd be 5 stars!

A hidden gem nestled down a street off the main drag, Il Pirata was hard to find, but worth the walk. Think fresh pasta made right in front of you and pizza dough rolled when an order is placed. Although possessing a simple menu of around three variations of pasta and sauce and around a dozen pizzas, Il Pirata's food... More

Had to try a pizza on the trip. It's a good place to get a pizza. They have a wood oven and good staff making them. The 4 cheese pizza with bacon is a killer! Get some!

Great service! Cool location. It's locked away behind the main street of Gili T, so you'll have to look for it. Just down the alley beside Gili T Spa, walk all the way down and its on the left at the end of the alley. Fresh wood-fired pizza. A nice tasty treat on Gili T! Very happy with this place!... More

I have eaten here a couple of times, and the pizza it is at the best as it can get in a island. The sauce and the mozzarella are really nice. The size and the flavor are too. The service seems a bit slow, but overall a very good Pizza and experience here.
