Charming and authentic

We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of this little restaurant. The meal was delicious-- a fresh mozzarella salad and pappardelle with mushroom ragu for me, and an arugula salad and lobster risotto for my husband. Attentive service throughout the evening.

It's been a while since I've be to Al Tiramisu, and that's a shame! This cozy restaurant hidden below Dupont Circle is a great DC experience! The owner is friendly, as well as the staff who have been here for years. The sign of a great restaurant that the chef has been there for years, and the dishes are always... More

As one of many locals, taking advantage of Washington's DC restaurant Week, we tried this small and quaint Italian restaurant in the heart of Dupont Circle. We found out that it has been there over 21 years, quite an accomplishment. My wife had dined there before I met her, several decades ago. We were seated promptly. Our tall and experienced... More

We like when dining goes beyond the food. It encompasses the atmosphere, the staff, the food and the time you get to enjoy it all. Al Tiramisu embodies all of that. John was an excellent waiter. He first brought a plate of four whole fish in order to explain the specials. I covered my eyes—very dramatically of course—because I can't... More

Al Tiramisu is a gem in Dupont Circle. The atmosphere of this little restaurant is intimate and cozy. The wait staff are very attentive and helpful, without being intrusive. Luigi, the owner, will come around and make sure everyone is enjoying the experience -- given the size of the restaurant, this is possible and a really nice gesture. My favorite... More

We tried this restaurant on the concierge's recommendation and found it a throwback to the "neighborhood Italian restaurant" of our youth. Not a criticism, but perhaps we expected more.

We stopped in for the house made limoncello and stayed for the homemade pasta. It was absolutely amazing. The service was wonderful and the food tasted like what we had while in Italy. Highly recommend.

This place have a good variety and we taste several foods with our group and all the plates was excellent. Good services, nice atmosphere. The place is small, a reservation is recomended. Nice selections of wines. Good option in DC.

Excellent welcome, the food was conventional American Italian, that does not mean bad indeed it was wholesome and tasty, just not truly memorable. Great place for a meal a deux but not necessarily for celebrating, just eat and enjoy
