    Definitely the best pizza I have had in San Diego. The Caesar Salad was delicious and complimented the pizza.

    Food was really good, just wish you all would get a better gluten free pizza crust that you don't have to burn and that honestly tastes like cardboard. There are really good ones out there ! Or make your own dough which is easy to do too! You can't even eat the leftovers. Service was great!

    Service was quick and friendly, and the pizza was very tasty. Like the thin crust style with a very crisp but chewy crust on the edges. Our pizza was not as hot I we would have liked which may have been due to ordering everything including appetizers at the same time and possibly prepping pizzas prior to being ready for them. I would order separately to have best chance at hot pizza when it arrives.

    Our first time here to try the much raved about pizza and thought it was very mediocre. The crust was somewhat soggy and the sausage just tasted like ground beef. Don't see myself returning anytime soon, sorry to say.

    Had high expectations of Ambrogio 15, but had a disappointing experience. Not good value. Very high prices for small portions and also food was fresh but nothing amazing. We were a family of 4 sitting in a booth that was uncomfortably small as well. Service was fine.

    This was our first time at this location. The pizza and salad was excellent. My husband ordered an Italian wine, however they only had 1/2 glass left in bottle. The charged him less, however the wine was excellent. We had a nice dinner, however we missed the Italian staff in PB

    Been here before and the food is consistently very good. Recommend the Abe Froman pizza and the Ambrogio house salad (go light dressing or on the side). Unfortunately, our server, while nice and friendly, was slow and unattentive.

    Made reservations for my boyfriend’s birthday (even though it wasn’t busy and we didn’t need them). We were able to choose our seat and the hostess and waitress were so nice and attentive. It was a little loud since it’s open to the other eating places, but still enjoyed the experience! Would definitely come back.

    Really great experience at the location in Del Mar, after previously only having been to PB. Our server Caleb was the perfect balance of attentive but also not overcrowding us. Nice wine list with some different reds I’ve never had before. The beef Milanese Caesar salad had super tender beef pieces and made a nice starter. After some deliberation, about which pizza to get, we shared the sausage and mushroom pizza, which was delicious! I love that the crust has a slight crunch while still is soft, and the bottom of the pizza still holds its shape. This place is a must, a gem of a pizza place with the freshest ingredients. Already can’t wait to go back!

    With only 2 tables at lunch time it we did get stellar service! The music from the central court area was upbeat. The roast beef appetizer was off the charts outrageously good. The tuna tartar very delicious. The pasta dish good but way too small for a pasta entree and while good, nothing special. The pizza was very delicious but way too thin. Almost impossible to eat and fold over like a thin NY pizza...none the less yummy. Over all though...very pricey.

    It was a disappointment to celebrate my birthday at this restaurant. We made a reservation a week before, for 4 people, and the day before we changed the reservation for 5 people. When we arrived, our table was for 4 people, we had to wait about 15 minutes until they organized another table. The attendant forgot to take my order, and while everyone was already eating, I was waiting. Anyway, I had no celebration, no bonus or drink or dessert for my birthday. It’s too loud to have a normally conversation. The food was good, but not the atmosphere and the service…

    The ingredients in the pizza were all from Italy. I can not eat wheat from America as it causes inflammation in my sciatica. This dough was made with wheat from Italy and I was able to eat it without any problems. I felt like I was back in Italy, it was fantastic. One of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. I will be back .

    The food was very good. Fresh, good presentation and servers very nice. We asked for patio seating because we thought it would be nice to be outside but we hadn’t seen it in advance. We mistook the bar above as part of the patio seating. It’s a little too cramped for customers. Next time we’ll be choosing an inside table but definitely would go back!

    Good food and service. Great menu selection. However, do not understand the reasoning to have club music with tremendous volume with low base beat in the background from the interior courtyard. This is not Las Vegas.

    I desperately needed a night out with my husband last night and, at random, chose Ambrogio15 in Del Mar. what a delightful surprise! We sat outside on the balcony & it was so lovely. Ben, our waiter, was wonderful!!! Every dish was beyond our expectations. The only hiccup came was when a large party with small children (who were using a tablet to play games loudly) came onto the balcony. Thankfully that was toward the end of our meal. But overall, YES YES YES major thumbs up! 👍🏼 We will be back!

    Ugh. I feel bad writing this because I have had good experiences in the past. Food quality has declined dramatically in the past 6 months! Not sure what happened but my vegetarian pizza had no flavor inthe sauce and the crust was 100%soggy. My husband ordered the Miami vice pasta and it was overly Al dente to the point of being crunchy! It was underseasoned as well and so he asked for salt and pepper. Our appetizer the squash blossoms was ok, a little greasy but it was the best part of our bland dinner. The service is good there, friendly and attentive but the food quality is not good , and for the prices, it’s simply not worth it for us to return. Please redo the menu , review the flavors, and add more vegetarian options. Thanks

    I read a review that Ambrogio had one of the best pizzas in town. Maybe they got that turned around - it was the worst pizza. Crust edge was like card board and thin bottom was underdone and like a wet noodle. Margherita pizza with no fresh tomato. The watery Red Sauce had zero favor either. Our waitress provided great service but when asked about her favorites they were the most expensive items on the menu. The $25 glass of wine was horrible. First & last visit.
