We shared our anniversary dinner here with some friends and had a wonderful experience. The food was great and creative, the wine pairings were wonderful and the staff was amazing. You should note that the restroom is outside and downstairs so not very accessable.

I recently re-experienced an extraordinary dining affair at Ambrogio by Acquerello in La Jolla, and it again exceeded all expectations. From the moment we stepped in, the ambiance was enchanting, setting the perfect tone for a romantic evening. We had been introduced to the restaurant when it was known as Semola and looked forward to experiencing Michelin starred Chef Silvio Salmoiraghi and Chef Choi Cheolhyeok creations. The attentiveness to detail from the staff was impeccable. Every gesture, from the warm welcome to the attentive service throughout the evening, made us feel truly cherished. But what truly stole the show was the highest quality of food presented to us. Each dish was a masterpiece, meticulously crafted with flavors that danced on the palate. It was evident that only the finest ingredients were used, showcasing the culinary expertise of the chefs. We had the pleasure of experiencing their Valentine's Day Prix Fixe dinner last year, and it was a culinary journey like no other. Each course was a delightful surprise, perfectly complemented by the sommelier's selections. In summary, Ambrogio by Acquerello is the epitome of fine dining. If you're looking for an unforgettable gastronomic experience where every detail is perfected, look no further. I can't wait to return and indulge in their culinary delights again.

I loved the experience that going to this restaurant provided. The restaurant was very cozy and intimate. Service was great! Never needing anything and always happy to answer all my questions. The server was very knowledgeable about wines and how to best pair them with the menu. The ingredients tasted so fresh, the Raviolo Aperto was my favorite dish!
Fortunate to reserve Christmas Eve dinner. Excellent food, wine selection, ambiance, wait staff. All around a phenomenal experience with vegetarian menu option. Highly recommend and look forward to visiting their sister restaurants.

Off the charts! We had a special occasion celebration in their quaint outdoor dining area. Go for the Dancing with the Stars menu with top-tier wine pairing. We had fantastic food, fantastic service and stunning wines. Everyone was impressed and ranked this highly. The chefs have their stars and this is certainly deserving of its own.
