Ambrogio15 Del Mar is a more upscale, but still casual version than our Pacific Beach Restaurant. We will have gourmet Pizzas developed by our partnership with Michelin-starred Milanese chef Silvio Salmoiraghi, his partner Choi Cheolhyeok, and gastronome Paolo Tucci. Additionally, we will also offer a five-course gourmet tasting menu for 15-20 diners at a time featuring Italian dishes and global meat and seafood entrees, with a vast menu of natural Italian wines and French Champagnes.

    Really loved our dinner at Ambrogio15. We had a cute table tucked away with a great view of the open kitchen. The service was fantastic. The waitress guided our wine choices and always had a great opinion when asked about things on the menu. The food was delicious.

    Every step of the way we felt rushed. There were plenty of tables but everything was brought out one right after another. We were still having salads and they were bringing out entrees, bringing the bill and we hadn’t even finished. The food at best was mediocre. Focaccia didn’t seem fresh. Just retoasted. Risotto was bland. Forgot anchovies in Caesar so brought out separately. I never write reviews but I write one now with the hopes that some of these things can be addressed.

    Always a solid pizza. Salad was fresh and plentiful. Service was great. Overall very nice experience. Noise level was a bit high on a Thursday night, but people were out having fun. Most of the noise comes from the bar area nearby.

    We went last night. MUCH more simple and casual than expected. Ambiance feels like it should be more like a quick cafeteria. Sat on the patio, which was better. The waitress was over the top good. She insisted that I try several of the wines to find one I liked. We were 5 people, and all ordered something different. The presentations were lovely, and everyone's dish was superb ( I tried them all). I was the only one who had leftovers (only because I knew I would want it again for dinner today). A real surprise, and I will definitely come back.

    We ordered the 5-course tasting menu with the “tier 1” wine flight. Food was excellent and the pairings were thoughtful and well-matched, and service was attentive without being overbearing. Very lively Saturday evening scene at the Skydeck with a DJ and lots of background buzz from out in the main area. Was cool and a bit unexpected to get an interesting and well-presented 5-course meal is what kind of feels like a food court where a house party broke out. Would definitely visit again.

    Service was wonderful. We were seated promptly, and our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive at all times. Our pizza was not up to the usual high standards of this restaurant. We have been going to the original Turquoise street location in Pacific Beach and always had great meals there. Every restaurant is entitled to an “off” night. Wine prices on the high side. Corkage fee is $30. Environment is a bit on the noisy side due to shared space with a central bar scene in this ‘food court’ arrangement. We will come again.

    Despite our high expectations based on a friend's recommendation, the booth was so tight that we could barely move and it was very uncomfortable to eat. There was a mixed up and they brought the wrong salad, then a second salad to fix the error, but we had to tell them to take out the first one from the ticket, as they included both. Pizza dough was good, but sauce was lukewarm and the prosciutto topping was cold, almost as out of the fridge. Overall, not a great experience, not sure I'll recommend it. Ah... the wine we ordered from the menu, not available and had to choose another one. Has a long way to go!

    Really enjoyed the restaurant. small, but it still felt big due to it being located in the skydeck which has a pretty open area of eateries. We were not rushed even after the closing of the restaurant, and the staff explained each dish we had which made our Valentine's Day feel amazing! Thank you and we shall return to try out other items on the menu :)

    Early Valentines date night. We ordered one valentines menu, one chefs tasting menu. OMG. The food was AMAZING, the service was OUTSTANDING! Very well paced, not rushed, perfect amount of attention by both our waiter and the sommelier. This is NOT just a pizza place. It is an incredible Italian cuisine dining experience. Can’t recommend highly enough!

    First time but have been to their sister restaurant in La Jolla -very different experience. We were 4 and we dine out at different restaurants every week. Headline - very limited menu - only pizzas and pasta and only 5 pasta choices all of which were rich and heavy. No protein entrees - no chicken, no fish, no beef, no protein at all! The prices are extremely high and it was very noisy - the food court, so the ambiance isn’t conducive to a nice meal. The meat and cheese board was very good, but should have been for the price - $34. I would go back for that but that’s the only item we would return for - everything was just too rich, the menu too narrow, it was overwhelmingly noisy and above all, far too pricy for the food and ambiance. On the other hand, we really enjoyed the food and ambiance at their restaurant in La Jolla which was also pricy but the food and ambiance helped make it worth it.

    Delicious food and fun ambiance inside the SkyDeck area! The SkyDeck itself is pretty loud and hectic, but we got a nice booth in the back and it was quiet. Very good service. They were out of the wine choices we wanted, but we got the Nero D'Avalo and it was really good and smooth. We started with the focaccia, which was good but nothing too special in my opinion. For food, I got the cacio e pepe which was really good, but the cod on it was very weird. I didn't even eat it, and would have preferred if there was an option for just cacio e pepe for less money, instead of $28 for cacio e pepe with weird cod. Two people at our table got the special gnocchi which was soooo good. Very expensive because it came with truffle, but delicious. One person got the Salamino Piccante pizza which was super good, honestly might have been my favorite. He added arugula and it was super delicious. Overall, would definitely come back here!

    We knew that our experience would be great considering how amazing their other restaurants (ambrogio 15 pb, semola, and ciao ciao piadina) are, but ambrogio Del Mar rose above our high expectations. The back patio was quiet, beautiful, and relaxing (and Covid-safe!). Isauro’s wine knowledge and commitment to giving guests the best experience are second to none. But by far the best part was the food: the veal appetizer was unique and delicious, the arrabiata pizza was an explosion of flavors, and the cacio e pepe with smoked cod was innovative and comforting at the same time. The service and timing were perfect. And don’t forget the dessert wine! What a great place to celebrate my birthday! Cannot wait to go back.

    My experience was terrible, especially keeping in mind that I and my son came to this place on the New Year Eve night. The place is like a diner but without any care or real service. The so called restaurant is 3 booths in front of a kitchen, all in the food court of a shopping mall… which was never revealed in a description of a place… We started or dinner with red wine while choosing our meals. The wine was terrible, despite the $18 per small glass… There was no choice of any pasta dish, just ether pizza or risotto… we chose risottos. We were waiting for our dishes for a half an hour during which time we were not offered a piece of bread, let alone with olive oil and balsamic vinegar… When we at last asked for some, it was focaccia , which came simultaneously with our risotto dishes and for which we were charged … The main dishes came in cold bowls , meaning that risotto started to taste like a porridge on a winter day in England… in a 20 min we got our check for $140 and a choice of a tip of 18% or higher… if I would be not in a company of my son, I would give $0.00 and before that, I would just returned my meal and wine which tasted like spoiled acidic juice… I am still wondering why the customers gave that place their 4 or 5 starts?

    Dear Elena Deryugina, we are sorry to hear that. Although we believe everyone is entitled to leave a negative review, yours looks more like the hateful rant of an unhappy person. We could explain how an authentic risotto made to order takes min. 20-25 mins., otherwise it means it's precooked, that the spoiled juice is actually a "Gambero Rosso" (Italian "Michelin Guide") multi award winner Pinot Nero.. but.. we just wish you a Happ(ier) 2022 hoping it would make you less "angry"! Cheers <3

    This restaurant is in a really cool new structure called the sky deck. They mostly specialize in pizza and the other options were not what I would usually order. Pork, clams, and cod dishes. But the pizza was suburb with a thin crust and spicy tomato sauce.

    Last night we visited Ambrogio15 Del Mar for the News Years Eve Dinner! Another incredible meal. We typically stick to just the Pizzas and Cheeseboards which we love, but it was nice to try the risotto and polenta, which were both exceptional. The filet mignon and wild boar were both cooked perfectly and prepared really well. The mushroom and black truffle pizza and the fried zucchini pizza both hit the spot. Ended the meal with the pistachio dessert which we loved. Chef Patrick was very attentative and checked on us multiple times, love the dishes hes added to the menu here. Cannot wait to return! Happy New Year

    We thoroughly enjoyed the new year’s Eve 5 course menu. Each of the dishes was delicious and beautifully plated. We did feel that some of the dishes like the starter, risotto and polenta could have been smaller portion sizes as we felt bad not completing each one. But wow, every single item was delicious and every single one of us loved it. This was our first time dining here and really my only criticism is that the decor/style could have been done a little better as the food far exceeds the causal fast food style decor. Amazing!!!!!!

    Caprese salad and pizza were very good. By the glass wine selection seemed somewhat limited. We had to wait for our table to open for about 5 minutes but host gave us a small glass of sparkling wine for free while we waited which was nice.
