Pizzeria
An authentic but unique Milano gourmet pizza, a special dough recipe, an innovative pizza-making process, high-quality Italian ingredients, a holistic approach to the food and beverage world, a focus on sustainable agriculture and farming, along with a deep love for Milano, where Andrea, Giacomo, and Luca grew up, and for San Diego, where they studied, worked and became who they are now. These are some of the concepts that make up the Ambrogio15 project. The idea was born in both Milano and San Diego, in the minds and the hearts of three young Italian guys who decided to leave the corporate world to begin a new adventure of passion, friendship, and a bit of foolishness.

Food was tasty! We waited 1:40 minutes for our pizzas to be served, we think that is a bit too much of waiting time!

Went for a casual V Day dinner, the ambience was great. Wine choices were excellent and the outdoor seating was surprisingly warm and comfortable. Food was excellent, I didn’t realize they did no pasta, would love to see a pasta menu! But what they served was excellent antipasto, salads, focaccia bread and pizza. Too notch!

Best wood fired pizza in San Diego. The Hannibal Lector is our favorite. Salads and appetizers are top quality. Homemade buffalo motz melts in your mouth!!

Reservation was pointless, waited almost 1 hr for a table. Food lacked any flavor. Ambiance was good and waitress was friendly. Food came super fast. She never checked in with us qgain until we waived her down for the bill.

This place was great from start to finish! The crust on the pizza is so thin but has a great bite and sooo much fresh flavor! 10/10 will go again

BEST PIZZA! Best REAL Italian cuisine!
This is the place to go if you want to have the SAME experience as if you were in Italy!
Everything is perfect and well balanced, the ingredients are REAL, fresh and GENUINE!
Not cutting corners here, and no heavy messy sauces and dishes as most of the “Italian restaurants” here!
You can eat here, or you can get on a plane and have the same dinning experience after 12 hrs flight 😱🛫🌍🛬 Thank you Ambrogio! Keep up the great work👍🏻

Ambrogio 15 is our go to dinner restaurant...everyday and special occasion. The pizzas,salads, and special dishes are made from the highest quality ingredients! The combinations are imaginative. The Milanese thin crust style allows the flavors to shine. The Ambrogio team is ever friendly and service focused...nothing stands in their way. Their charming outdoor setting evokes A meal in Italy.

Highest recommendation!

Excellent pizza! We got the margarita with prosciutto and the one with ground sausage and mushrooms. Both had excellent flavors and crispy crusts. Unlike a Naples style pizza which often has a soft, flappy bottom, this was crispy and thin. The wine selection is excellent too. Skipped dessert but already can’t wait to go back!

Always the best place in San Diego to eat a Pizza.

The Beef Carpaccio is a must!

The wine selection is really good, I recommend the Cabernet Sauvignon – Sangiovese Esperienze.

A premium service that is the final touch for an amazing experience.

I will be back soon.

Outstanding salads, best pizza toppings we have ever had, wow, what a treat the Nuvola was, biodynamic wines! I wish they would create a great gluten- free pizza crust (copy Buona Forchetta's!) to match the rest of their offering. What a lovely setting, and you can tell they are rightfully proud of the high quality of their food. Quite full on Wednesday evening, so folks know about this place. Most highly recommended!

Best pizza in San Diego by far!

All ingredients are just high quality level.

I started with the beef carpaccio and I was really surprise with how delicate the plate is.

Ambrogio15 is a real European restaurante that brings a true "savior-faire" to the table.

My wife & I had the opportunity to return to this restaurant for the 2nd time. Our 1st dining experience here was at the beginning of mandatory outdoor dining only, and I was not mentally prepared for this change ,tainting my impression of this restaurant’s food and service. Tonight, we were greeted at our table by the restaurants owner, Giacomo, and I explained my initial impressions may have been a reflection of the changing times. Giacomo, who greets all his guests at their table, offered to assist us in menu selection. This is a restaurant that specializes in Melano style pizza, and his large menu selections may be a bit confusing, so his assistance was welcome. What he selected for us was perfect for our different taste preferences. It was brought to our table promptly and hot, and the taste was out of this world...something Pacific Beach dining surely would appreciate. This restaurant’s extensive offering of fine wines wonderfully complimented our dining experience.
This 2nd visit to Ambroglio 15 was an exceptional dining pleasure, and we intend to return..whether it be takeout or, hopefully, to again enjoy the dining in experience. The service was exceptional. My hearty congrats to Giacomo’s well run and delicious restaurant experience.
