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.

My girlfriend Maggi and I were here a few days ago and had one of the best pizzas ever so we had to come back and check it out today. It was just as good as last time. This Place is a Keeper.

The burrata and prosciutto appetizer was phenomenal. Their pizzas are some of the best I've ever had. The sauce is fresh and bright. Great wine selection as well. Very good night out in Pacific Beach. Highly recommend.

The pizza is unusually excellent with a thin, crisp crust even with the wheat flower. The owners are charming, and the service is good. One problem: a high noise level, especially unsuitable for a larger group that want to talk.

Birthday gathering. Perfect for dining family style with unbeatable pizzas, salads, and antipasti. And good family and friends. Everyone had a great time. No one could stop talking about the food.

And the wine selection is top notch, creative and bio.

I was more than impressed and was returning after a similar experience this summer

everything was great, though the pizza dough was a bit under cooked, i guess it was too many a parties that they had to get pizzas out as fast as they could... it was valentines day

It seemed we were a bother to be there. The managers were laughing and hugging other guests, but never even said hello to our table. Wasn't a very welcoming time. We were never offered plates, so we had to eat off of the serving tray that the pizza came on. To the gentleman that was watching his Porsche in the parking lot, maybe your patrons could park if you moved your car and delivery van.

The pizza was pretty good, especially the delicious crust. It was a little pricey for pizza with so few toppings, and I was expecting fresh mushrooms instead of canned. The service was excellent. Wine was great... reasonably priced.

First time here and my boyfriend and I loved it. It is well lit, the food is delicious, and the wine that was suggested to us was perfect with our meal. It is pricy, so not so good for a quick brunch. We were there for two hours but because we took our time. The service was amazing! Would definitely come again

Consistently excellent Italian food with pizzas that reminded me of ones I had in Italy. Great focaccia choices, very authentic dishes you won't find elsewhere. Prices are reasonable, especially given the high quality of the ingredients. Great tiramisu. Only downside: it's pretty noisy unless you go early when not too many people are there.

Tried them for lunch. These guys have the code cracked on pizza crust! Best I've had in San Diego for sure. I had the Magherita pizza with prosccuitto and my wife had the spicy salumi pizza. Both were superb. We'll definitely be back.

Not sure what the big deal is about this pizzeria. It was okay but I’ve had better. Maybe I just missed it although the Hannibal pizza was recommended by the server.

Lack of ingredients/tomatoes sauce, burrata.
The place closes at 10:00pm at Sunday.
We arrived at 9:00pm and the waitress almost sent us home. Kind of unprofessional. The place was empty this time and still.. they asked for our reservation.. but overall good pizza.
They need more attention to the details.

While waiting for my bags I found the restaurant in pacific beach with a table available @ 9pm - what a pleasant surprise with delicious food offering good value! We sat outside on the patio which was pleasant since the noise level inside would strain conversation! A quality meal at a neighborhood gem

We have been to Ambrogio15 several times and have been very pleased with the authentic food & wonderful service. Unfortunately when we were there on Saturday night they were busy & the wait for our food was very long. We will definitely go back & I would recommend this place but they must have a small kitchen and are not able to handle a large crowd.
