This restaurant was recommended to us by our Air BNB host. It did not disappoint. Food was incredible and plentiful. My husband and I shared a salad and small smoked salmon pizza. Delicious and filling. Service was good too.

Excellent place to eat, nice attention, great food! Always enjoy visit the place. Too crowded in weekends but, during the week is slow and can get a table very fast. Pizza!!! Is the best in town, period! Very attentive staff and the place have that historic feel that you think you are in Italy!

Traveled to San Juan expecting to dine on some authentic Puerto Rican food and ended up eating an old American staple of pizza and we were pleasantly surprised. Down fall was a so called spicy drink with a Jalapeño in it that was a major disappointment.

My wife and I try to go to Pirilo almost every week. It's so good that I recommend you to call and save a table because it's always full, mostly on the weekends. Their carbonara and meat pizza are just great. Their pecan pie it's great too. What I love about Pirilo it's their variety of beers and that their... More

So enjoyed eating here! Very good food and really great service. Fun atmosphere as well. Popular place so you may have some wait time, but there are shops to peruse & they will text you when your table is ready.

I had been wanting to go for months, but was always stuck with the long lines and ending up deciding for somewhere else. This time, I went for early lunch, around 1 p.m. The place was full but no lines, and we got a great seat on the second floor by a window. The experience with the view outside and... More

We ordered veggie pizza, a couple of sangrias (Do not miss these), and garlic bread. We just stumbled upon it while looking for food at 10 PM (we were severely jet lagged from our flight from CA). Wow, is the food delicious, and the sangrias are to die for. Don't forget to get their house marinara sauce for the garlic... More

This was my second visit. The first time last year the place was fully pack and waitint time was over 30 minutes. This time we went on a Monday evening around 6:30pm. There were four of us. We ordered a bottle of fine wine, some appetizers and a big seafood pizza. The service was excellent and we enjoy a very... More
