Brilliant Reviews

The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. Perfect for Families with young children. A lot of country. Brilliant has a public Library with a summer program for Students in Elementary school. Brilliant has a nice pool to cool down in the summer and have fun. Also in Brilliant we have a Softball/T-Ball/Baseball little League. Also a gas station with all kinds of stuff to buy. Of course we have a pizza place you can order you're Dinner if you don't feel like cooking. The bad thing is Brilliant has no store or ice cream place. There is no activities for Teenagers 14 and up.
Review Brilliant
Brilliant is a quiet and quaint town in Ohio. I have lived here for 2 years and can say it has been nothing but pleasant. i would recommend this area if you want to be commuter distance from pittsburgh and not have to get your car inspected.
