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.

If you like thin crust pizza, this is the place! The only thing I would change is to make the sauce a little thicker and more flavorful.

We are on vacation from Colorado visiting family .
I found this place on open table and it was wonderful! everybody raved about the food .
The Meat tray/board was wonderful and the pizzas was to die for , I literally felt like I was in Italy, and for us eating outside the night was beautiful!

Delicious and unusual thin crust pizzas, loaded with toppings! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful...recommended the chocolate salami (!) for dessert and we were so glad we listened! It was fabulous! Only complaint was that the salad seemed rather overpriced for the tiny amount we received, however it was quite tasty. Service was very quick and outside patio was relaxing. We'll definitely be back.

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.
