I attended a small wedding at Pilu yesterday afternoon. The service was impeccable as was the food, oysters & pork belly were standouts. The wines were just perfect with the food, and the absolute ocean view was just the best. Great place!

Just when you may be thinking that Pilu is all about your old country nonna's tasty everyday cooking, sparks of cheffy creativity are showcased in some dishes! Eg, 1. Pecorino consomme, hand rolled fregola, corn, macadamia nuts, chives (...authentic rustic food, turned into a masterpiece...More
