Ambrogio15 in Phoenix

Led by Michelin-starred Chef Silvio Salmoiraghi and Executive Chef Fabio Pizzigoni, Ambrogio15 is Phoenix’s newest Italian restaurant, offering guests authentic dishes, from famous paper-thin pizzas to refined seafood delicacies. .

After a successful grand opening last spring, the highly anticipated Ambrogio15 is now open at Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix. The Italian concept comes from Ambrogio15 Restaurant Group, an award-winning brand with five concepts established throughout San Diego and now a sixth in Phoenix.

Upon entering Ambrogio15, guests are enveloped in an elegant and airy atmosphere inspired by Milan. The elegant living room welcomes guests with a distinctive wine tower showcasing a wide selection of boutique wineries in Italy curated by co-owner Giacomo Pizzigoni. The main dining room, adorned with custom-made leather-covered tables and vibrant botanicals, offers an intimate yet elegant atmosphere, with rich wooden tables, black accents and neon letters that buzz “Let Them Eat Pizza” on the walls.


Ambrogio15 is led by Michelin-starred chef Silvio Salmoiraghi and executive chef Fabio Pizzigoni, both recognized for their extensive experience in the culinary arts. “I started cooking at home when I was little,” says Chef Pizzigoni. “I always watched my mother cook and I started cooking with her, or alone, when I was 10 years old. At the age of 14 I started going to cooking school.”

For Ambrogio15 guests, Chef Pizzigoni guarantees a dining experience marked by healthy cuisine and natural flavors derived from quality ingredients.

“What I want to convey to diners is that modern Italian cuisine always uses fresh, quality products, without using any type of processed food or gluten,” says Chef Pizzigoni. “We cook with international techniques that respect Italian cuisine. Travel influenced me a lot, especially my experiences in France. France opened a new world to me in terms of technique and way of seeing cooking. But culturally I still have a lot of attachment to Italian cuisine.”


Chef Pizzigoni highlights the importance of understanding the culture, history, and evolution of cuisine to aspiring chefs and recommends delving deeper into these topics to make sense of cooking.

Inspired by Milan, Italy, the menu features a variety of dishes, including Italian-style steaks, seafood, and raw options such as oysters and a variety of Crudos. Some must-try dishes include octopus carpaccio with Italian chimichurri, lemon and chili; the Salamino Piccante pizza with San Marzano tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, spicy Calabrese salami, fresh rosemary and aged Parmigiano Reggiano; and the Ravioli Carbonara with egg yolk, crispy guanciale and Pecorino Romano.

The Diavolo

Adding to Ambrogio15’s appeal is the cocktail selection curated by Marco Russo, an award-winning Italian mixologist best known for founding Bar1930, Milan’s first speakeasy, and Backdoor43, the world’s smallest cocktail bar. Russo brings his expertise to Ambrogio15, with signature sips including El Milanes, a sip served in a pearlescent shell with Old Overholt Rye, Fino Sherry, saffron syrup and saffron; the smoky Il Diavolo with Patrón Silver, smoked chili, cocoa liqueur, fire tincture, lime and smoked salt served in a breathable clay skull; and the fruity Brazilian punch, shaken with Avua Amburana, Casamigos Cristalino, lime, soursop, guava and rose water.

A bite from the dolci menu is a must to complete the experience, with sweets like the Tiramisu Di Chef Fabio, with sponge cakes, Vergnano Espresso and mascarpone; caramel flan, with fresh red berries, raspberry sorbet and caramel; the Chocolate Surprise with hazelnuts, amaretto and mint; or opt for the Dessert Plateau to try a variety of each.

Ambrogio15 is open from Sunday to Thursday, from 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
