    We’re visiting from the East Coast and this was truly an amazing dining experience. It’s very expensive but is what you would expect for this type of dining. Everything was beautifully prepared, presented and explained. Would definitely recommend “Through the Looking Glass” wine pairing. The wine pairings were perfect for each course! Would definitely recommend and would come again when visiting to enjoy a special dining experience.

    Truly an unforgettable dining experience. The owners and staff are fantastic - superb service! The creativity of the chefs is unparalleled. It’s hard to adequately compliment the quality of each dish we enjoyed. I can’t wait to bring family and friends to experience Ambrogio!

    A bucket list experience. The wine pairings with the 8 course menu was beyond superb. Professional staff and even one of the chef s did the pairings. Who would think Japanese infused Italian would be so delectable and delicious.

    Clearly one of the best restaurants in San Diego county. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful in explaining each course and with wine selections. The food was incredible. I can’t wait to go back and would highly recommend this dining experience. Every aspect of our dining experience was impeccable.

    We both had the vegetarian tasting menu which started off strong, but faded and suddenly it was dessert time and we kept counting how many courses we had left, and there were 3, but one dessert came out and some bland mini-patisseries, that really was not3 courses at all. They would have done better if they had more savory courses then finished with one dessert. One or two courses were interesting, like the amuse bouche (which was one of favorite things) and the "surprise" course where you have to guess the ingredients. We asked for the truffles on the pasta dish but they tasted of nothing. I think they were either old or had been sitting around a long time. Very pleasant staff, but overall we both felt the flavors weren't developed enough and my son ended up saying his N/A peach Bellini (which was lovely) was the best thing he had.

    Una experiencia interesante, se ve que estan luchando fuerte por tener su estrella Michellin. El servicio excelente. La comida muy bien, en general muy buena. Hubieron algunos platos que os quedaron a deber. Por ejemplo el Callo de Hacha, la trufa negra no tenía muy poco aroma y sabor, venia ya en el plato, luce mucho mas servido en la mesa. Comida muy buena pero no sobresaliente. Pedimos maridaje premium, si bien los vinos fueron interesantes, creemos no justifican el precio. Sentimos sinceramente que la relación calidad - precio no es correcta, cobran como si tuvieran estrella Michellin pero aun les falta. Es una opinión sincera de quien tiene amplia experiencia probando restaurantes de éste nivel. Regresaría? No. Estuvo bien pero creo hay mucho mejores opciones en San Diego y La Jolla.
