Tasting menu was exquisite. Every menu item was filled with flavor and so unique. I paid the additional $60 to add the wagyu. Even though it melted in your mouth, I think that part was a little too pricey for such a small portion. Overall I recommend.

We had a very good experience. This is a great choice if you have either a full vegan/vegetarian party or a mixed group. The food is made in separate kitchens, and the vegan dishes are unique and inventive - not just dishes without meat. The service is great. They are dog-friendly and were able to accommodate us with a table near the door. It can be a little pricey but I think it's worth it for the quality and presentation. We'll be returning shortly for our anniversary because we were so pleased with the last meal we had.

Great food, fun environment! Definitely worth a return trip! PS got lucky with the free tequila tasting, hosted by Califino. I’d drink that again too.

Ambrogio15 Del Mar is a more upscale, but still casual version than our Pacific Beach Restaurant. We will have gourmet Pizzas developed by our partnership with Michelin-starred Milanese chef Silvio Salmoiraghi, his partner Choi Cheolhyeok, and gastronome Paolo Tucci. Additionally, we will also offer a five-course gourmet tasting menu for 15-20 diners at a time featuring Italian dishes and global meat and seafood entrees, with a vast menu of natural Italian wines and French Champagnes.

Amazing food and wonderful service. A real gem of a restaurant and we will return. Hope to see a move to a larger restaurant space in the future as the area is a little cramped.

The garlic edamame was delicious! My husband got the nigiri chef special and I had a vegetarian roll. Both of them were great too! Service was friendly and helpful and while we were closer to other diners the noise was relatively low.
