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.

We drive from north county down to Ambrogio as often as possible. Favorite restaurant in San Diego. Looking forward to the new openings in Del Mar and La Jolla!

Yes upon arriving we ordered a beautiful cheese platter and about 15 minutes later another person delivered a tree platter to set it in front of us and walked away with no explanation of what the cheeses were so we took to smelling them and nibbling on them and guessing what they were. When our server finally arrive 15 minutes after their cheese flutter he asked if they had explained it and we said no he began to touch our platter with his fingers both eyes and my daughter were a palled at this I was just waiting for them to touch your cheese I mean my goodness it was I couldn’t believe it. Needless to sayI’m not be back to the PB location

This was my mothers first "outing" since the COVID situation started... she was very scared to go out but the team and environment at Ambrogio was perfect. She felt safe & secure and was able to enjoy the best pizza in San Diego outdoors and with a wonderful staff looking after her. Thank you Ambrogio15!!

Wait staff was so kind, reasonably priced bottles of wine. Cheapest $29 Chianti that was not bad! Granted my friends and I are not wine enthusiasts. Food was delicious and vegetarian friendly

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.

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!
