Our concierge highly recommended this Italian spot near our hotel...shame on us for not reading trip advisor reviews. We too found the portions small, the prices high, and the choices limited. The fish was very fresh and the sides adequate. While the service was attentive...initially, the staff soon became more interested in the persons at the bar or some later... More

Had a nice meal, a quiet pleasant place. But the portions were tiny ad we're not big people. One server kept rubbing his runny nose with is hands as he brought the food out from the kitchen. I left after pasta course because I was afraid he'd touch my food. Nice food, nice place, but very little food for the... More

I have tried to really like Al Tiramisu ..... but every time I leave I feel underwhelmed. I have been here 3 times over the last 3 years for business dinners since it is a favorite of one of my colleagues so I feel I have given it a fair chance. I love smaller, quaint settings and this restaurant definitely... More

My wife and I were in town on an anniversary getwaway. I chose Al Tiramisu for its reputation and attraction to celebrities - a favorite haunt of George Clooney when he's in town I hear. Anyway, the restaurant definitely has ambience! You are catered-to with special care - the staff is very attentive - but NOT pushy. Which is nice.... More

We didn't have a reservation so we were happy to get a table. The food was very good... service a little rushed.. tables very close together. I will probably never go back.

I remember having an excellent dinner here in the past. Authentic Italian, friendly and welcoming staff.. But for soe reason on this return trip I was not as impressed with the quality and value of the food for the high prices. And it was very loud which detracted from the experience.

There are a couple of things that rubbed me the wrong way about this place. First of all, the chef wears his kitchen attire and then proceeds to hang out in the bar the whole night. Ok, if you're going to be host, play host. When I enter the restaurant for the first time and upon greeting him, he brisk... More

I want to be honest right off the bat. I know the chef and owner of this restaurant. But this is really a great restaurant as it really reflects Luigi's passion and personality. How can you not love Luigi, and how can you not love this restaurant? It's warm and sunny inside, the staff is well trained and attentive, and... More

The food was probably the best Italian food we have eaten since being in Venice. The pasta dishes clearly all made freshly.The staff were very friendly and attentive. Would recommend and go back again.
