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.

Loved the pizza! We got a few to try and my favorite was the artichoke and pancetta white pizza. With a healthy dose of chili oil, makes me want to go back again tonight!

It was great, the service was a little poor. Our server tended to talk over our head about wine and disregarded the things we said we liked and only pushed their own recommendations. There may have been a promotion for wine going on our something but it felt a little insulting.

We needed a night out and a place that the kids would enjoy as well. This was the perfect place for a glass of wine for my wife and I, and pizza that we all enjoyed. Sitting outside was nice. Friendly and quick service. Tie it in with a walk on the beach and it makes for a perfect night.

The food was terrific, especially the house salad. The freshness was amazing! Juicy tomatoes, freshly grated cheese and especially tasty dressing made an excellent starter. The fungi pizza was great, however it could have had more cheese and been better. The service was a little slow and the prices a little high for a two dollar sign restaurant but we did enjoy our meal, just didn’t expect to spend over $100 for two with minimal alcohol.

The pizza was extremely salty and not just from the pepperoni. I asked for prosciutto instead of pepperoni and was given both. Also we were told we shouldn’t share and needed 2 pizzas when we in fact we did not. The pizza was overpriced for the quality.
I do not recommend the gluten free crust it was subpar and I have had way better.

It took forever to get us our food. This is wood fired pizza which shouldn’t take too long - they came out 3 different times saying it would come out shortly- About 45 minutes and we were the only ones there. The pizza was very average at best.

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!!
