There is a lot of local hype with Pirilo so I have been looking forward to trying their pizza. So today, after doing a photo session we decided to try out. The first thing that impressed me was the ambiance and decor. It is a really cool place to go on a date or with friends or family. The place... More

You are in San Juan - but if you're tired of mofongo, then a stop in here will be a nice change of pace. Lots of options (some strange) - all tasty. They have IPA on draft and the Pizza's are large and filling.

One of the best pizza places in Old San Juan. Make sure to make a reservation prior going to the ace to avoid the waiting for a table.

Pirilo is a really pretty italian and pizza joint that we didnt plan to go to, just happened to be walking by and both agreed looked like a pretty restaurant on the inside. The pizza was delicious, the empanadas were really delicious, and the Sangria was the best. We sat upstairs in the second floor and it was super fun,... More

After today I doubt we will return! We have been loyal customers for 2 years since my base is in old san juan but this is no longer the best. the servers are nice and the food decent. They have changed the dough of the pizza and their steak tastes funny. one of my fellow coasties says they marinate or... More

We visited last week and were very disappointed. Something has changed in Pirilo for the worst. When they started and one of the reasons they became very popular was the fact that you could tell each pizza was freshly made from scratch and you could choose from a variety of crusts, including my wife's preferred very thin crust. Yes, this... More

Very popular - it is common to see people gathered at the door waiting for tables. There is a nice bar area on the ground floor and a much larger space on the next level. Tasteful interior decor, and delicious food. Highly recommended.

The first night in San Juan my friend and I decided to go to Pirilo as a couple of years ago I had a great meal there. Again it was great, a special pizza with a lot of toppings and a draft stout beer to die for. Also a refreshing passion fruit beer on draft. The pizza was huge and... More
