We stopped for lunch and shared a selection of personal and large pizzas (more than enough for two to share as slices are huge). Top tip: order half and half so you sample as many delicious toppings as possible! Reasonable drinks offers too as can't have pizza without beer: two peroni for five dollars.

My wife and I stopped at this spot for drinks and ended up having some appetizers also. Great ambiance, great service, great draft local beer. The empanadillas marinas were pretty good.

I have been to both locations (Viejo San Juan and Ocean Park) and have not been disappointed. In Viejo San Juan I always go to the second floor because it is more comfortable than the first floor. My granddaughters and I went to VSJ to celebrate my wife's last chemotherapy for breast cancer and we enjoyed it very much. (Thank... More

This my must stop place whenever I'm in Old San Juan. Their pizzas are awesome with great homemade sauce and freshest ingredients. Great selection of appetizers/Tapas and a wide variety of craft beers either on tab or bottle. They have a fast and friendly service and a great ambiance to top this place. If you are in Old San Juan... More

WE originally intended to visit another eating establishment but it was closed until 4pm and we were told that Pirilp Pizza has some of the best Pizza and Tapas in town.

Pirilo's Pizza is a great place in the Old San Juan. It has this vintage vibe, a bar and an excellent service. You should eat here if you are in San Juan.

We visit this restaurant with my family. We bought a pizza and a calzone to takeout. We try the pampa pizza, was ok. But the calzone was burnt as you see in the picture. I never visit again. The place is very busy.
