Fantastic!! Best pizza around! Service was phenomenal and high quality food. This is the way to do Italian pizza. Desserts were so good! Will definitely eat here again!

Went there twice on our visit, once for takeout & once for patio dining. Takeout process was great, manager even remembered we needed utensils. For patio dining, good spacing & dog friendly. Both pizzas we had were delicious (Carciofi, Pancetta e Asiago; and Salsiccia, Gorgonzola...e Cipolla). Insulate Dell's Casa & Insalata Caprese were equally tasty. Desserts (Gelato & Tartofo) - great. Service was goodMore

We went for dinner on a weeknight and it was still pretty busy. A lot of vegetarian options, but few non-pork protein options, which is disappointing. Living in NYC and having been to Naples, I've had amazing pizza. Having read the reviews for this place,...I was expecting amazing pizza. We started with the zucchini carpaccio and salad, which were alright. I got a Margherita and my husband, the Breseola. The crust was great, but the rest was meh. I thought the sauce would have more flavor.More

The simplest way to describe the difference between pizzas made by Ambrolgio 15 and almost everyone else's is that they are light, crunchy, and not laden with heaviness. You can really taste the crust, the cheese, the toppings. In a way, they are guilt-free pizzas...for we didn't immediately regret having eaten that one-more-piece. We will definitely eat here again when next we re in San Diego.More

This is some of the best pizza in San Diego. It is super thin crust and the toppings are fresh and wonderful. They have any type of pizza you want. You can have delivered, pick up or eat at their outside tables. The place is...super cute, the service fast and friendly. They have some well priced wines and oh their bread is just great. Also, try their dessert items, you will be in heaven. Now this is not fast food. They make it when you order so it takes a wee amount of time and a bit more when crowded. You will love it.More

Ate outside which was fine as the weather was good and they have heaters. Food was spectacular - pizza as good as any we had in Italy. Great location too - couple of blocks from the beach and easy parking.

We went there after reading the awesome reviews. Our reservation was at 7:30pm. Place was full and had to wait. We ordered around 8pm. Our pizzas were served at 9:50pm, almost two hours later!!! Too much for pizza. Food was good and waiter very friendly,...but pizza dinner should not take that long. We stayed for dessert so we left close to 11. I would probably suggest a bigger pizza oven.More

Hi, this is Giacomo the owner. First of all let me apologize about the wait in sitting you guys down. Also, I agree with you, 1 hour and a half is too much. However, it Usually it takes between 15 and 30 mins for us...More

I have been to Italy many, many times and this place is right on target for Italian pizza. The ingredients were very fresh, the dough was spot on and I loved our experience.
