Fodor's Expert Review Pirilo

$ Old San Juan Pizza

Day and night, locals flock to Pirilo to indulge in some of the finest pizza to be had in San Juan. The restaurant now boasts a second floor with substantial seating, high-vaulted ceilings, and a bar focused on brews. Owner Eduardo Rubio makes everything from scratch, most notably the pizza crust, which uses a 300-year-old starter as its base. You can have anything from a classic margherita pie to one based on the local tripleta sandwich. Given the nightly crowds, it's clear that others are in on the secret. It's always packed and there might be a wait, but everyone is having such a good time, you won't mind, especially with more than 50 craft brews available.
