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

We were well-received for an early dinner; and initial service fine. Restaurant is rather small, and narrow; acoustics very poor and make it almost impossible to have a conversation. Upon ordering, appetizers arrived literally within a minute; obviously not freshly made but were fairly good, better than adequate. 1 of 3 dinners brought to table was wrong meal; waiter insisted...

Bustling Italian w/really good pasta (fettucini [sp?] w/lamb ragout and linguini w/lobster in red sauce -- both very good) and branzini grilled w/potatoes and mixed vegetable, bread w/olive tapenade good -- good value and good food, good service...not in the pantheon of great Italian restaurants, but certainly a good value proposition and an enjoyable meal...pleasant service...

You might think that the tiramisu at a restaurant including that dessert in its title would be exemplary. But you, as were we, would be mistaken when it comes to Al Tiramisu with its pitiful version of its namesake dessert which probably was made at a bakery. In fact we found little to recommend about this tiny Dupont Plaza area... More

We recently ate at Al Tiramisu because it was convenient to our hotel. The food was great, the atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable and the service was outstanding. We will definitely eat there again, the next time we're in DC.

A friend and I went to Al Tiramisu to celebrate our birthdays together, and we had an excellent experience. The atmosphere of Al Tiramisu is cozy and inviting. Our waiter was utterly charming and attentive and knowledgeable and thoroughly pampered and entertained us throughout the whole meal - I am remiss in not recalling his name so that I could... More

Went to Al Tiramisu recently based on recommendation of hotel and Tripadvisor confirmation, and then realized that we had eaten there 10 years before! Having lived in Italy for two years, we will not go to an Italian restaurant unless they serve homemade pastas! Al Tiramisu did not disappoint. I had the lobster linguini and my wife had the squash... More

It was convenient for our hotel. I can't imagine how Washingtonians can afford the prices! Food good Service and atmosphere very good. Wine prices ridiculous.

A must go. Top notch authentic, fresh Italian food. For me, it's very difficult to find an Italian restaurant that is better than my parents' cooking. This place is amazing. Service is top notch. Quaint little place in DC and a must try.
