We went to Pirilo for dinner while walking around Old San Juan with a friend during a recent visit. Took us awhile to get in, but it was worth it. We had wine and shared two pizzas--a 10" margherita and a 10" pesto. The pizzas were excellent, and it was enough for the three of us. The service was also... More

Had the "meat pizza" can't remember name of pizza. Thin crust, fresh, lots of meat toppings. Not the best pizza I have had but good.

I have been a customer for years. The service continues to be courteous, the place is nice (especially the upstairs). However, the food quality and love for what they do has dropped. I no longer crave a Pirili's pizza/pasta after a long day of work. I hope they can get that back someday.

Food is a 3.5. Service was good for how busy it was. Got the pizza. Crust was really good. Ingredients were good quality. Way too much arugula and onion on the pizza. Not enough Buffalo mozzarella. Small mojito for the $8 price. Side note. Don't be a jerk and listen to loud videos on your cell phone for 20 minutes... More

We ate at Pirilo our first night in Old San Juan and were pleasantly surprised at the different types of craft beer available on tap and in bottles! The pizza and other finger foods were fantastic! It was so good, we returned a 2nd time even though we were only there for 3 days. Air conditioning is lovely to cool... More

In the heart of Old San Juan. Great Churrasco Pizza and full bar. The place is always crowded since it is a very popular spot locals.

Great food, tried the pesto pizza and it was delicious, the small one was perfect for the both of us, after having the empanadilla sampler which has 3, and they were great. Definitely going back again.
