Truly Italian

When you are eating at an Italian restaurant and some of the customers there are speaking Italian, you kind of know you hit the jackpot. We were just going to share some wine when they recommended a dish that had smoked duck proscuitto, grilled calamari, pate, on a small plate. Needless to say... read more

I generally don't eat at Italian restaurants because I find the cuisine to be relatively simplistic, but I went to Al Tiramisu on the very strong recommendation of a friend. The restaurant is very non-descript on the outside. Inside it's nice and cozy, not fancy. I was all ready to order off the menu, but the waiter wouldn't let me.... More

VERY EXPENSIVE, ($300 for two) but worth it. Service was great, albeit a tad snooty. Very romantic. 1980's furniture with pinkish walls could use an update. Note: Don't let them sit you next to the front door--there is a nicer room in the back. Wine starts at $40 and goes to $900.

The quality of the service here is exceptional. We were greeted by the owner Luigi and so pleased that the owner was on the premises. Our shaved fennel with blood orange was delicious as was the Clams Vongele. Our waiter, John was handsome and friendly as well as efficient. The small restaurant reminded us of our great dinners in Rome... More

Enjoyed the $8 valet parking upon arrival at 6PM. My friend had worked with our very handsome Italian waiter to select a delicious bottle of red. I had the Marinated Portobello mushroom, local goat cheese, fresh herbs, mesclun salad to start and my friend had a salad special. We both ordered risotto from the special lists and both were completely... More

had dinner here with friends. The food was good Italian good, very traditional and fresh. The service was amazing, all our servers were friendly and willing to have a bit of fun but still formal. Would dine here again.

A small Italian restaurant located below street level. Inside it is very cozy and romantic. It is owned by Italians and the cook is a real Italian. That's why the food are just super-delicioso and they have good collection of Italian wine. The service is great and it's better to have reservation for dinner because it is always packed!

Dupont Circle shinning star. We dine with John at Al Tiramisu each time we visit DC. Professional wait staff. Exceptional dishes that are creative and succulent. Small, busy, never disappoints.

This restaurant might well have been where I have had one of the most amazing meals of my entire life. The 'house wine' served was to die for - the Risotto phenomenal. The only, ONLY thing that I can and will say negatively about the restaurant, is that they serve veal. Which from a moral stand point I simply do... More

Small place with great food but service did not match. Waited a long time for bread and olive oil, which they forgot to bring and which we had to ask for. Waiter was rude, impatiently motioning with his arms and hands for me to give him my complete order instead of nicely asking what I wanted for my entree. His... More
