An authentic but unique Milano gourmet pizza is the beginning of the Ambrogio15 Pacific Beach story. A special dough recipe, an innovative pizza-making process, high-quality Italian ingredients, the focus on sustainable agriculture and farming, along with a deep love for Milano, where Andrea and Giacomo grew up, and San Diego, where they studied, worked, and became who they are now. These are some of the concepts that make up the project. The idea was born in both Milano and San Diego, in the minds and the hearts of two young Italian guys who decided to leave the corporate world to begin a new adventure of passion, friendship, and a bit of foolishness.

The two entrepreneurs spent more than a year developing their main product — a special paper-thin-crust pizza — along with its variations: the thicker whole-wheat pizza, the soft Nuvola (Cloud) Focaccia, and the crunchy-crust Scrocchiarella. Conducting taste tests all over Italy, they created a new and original recipe that combined the best of every single pizza. They perfected recipes after hundreds of trials, selecting ingredients from the top small-scale, organic, and sustainable producers and farmers in Italy.

At the same time, they began to work with renowned Italian architects to create an atmosphere in the pizzeria that resembled their hometown of Milano — the capital of design and fashion — bringing the city’s hip style and vibe to San Diego. It was a new concept, completely different from the traditional Italian restaurants.

A modern and cozy atmosphere with high-quality food, and a fun service, enriched by the stories behind each product, make Ambrogio15 Pacific Beach a must for anyone who wants to enjoy a truly unique Italian Pizza dining experience.
