The service was excellent. The dessert was a great way to finish the meal. The wine list was extensive and the prices were quite reasonable. We recommend... More

The owner, servers and cook always are attentive to my wife's food allergies such as no alcohol, tomato, lemon or spices, which makes it kind of tough for an Italian restaurant. But her meal always come out delicious and made to order as requested. I especially enjoy some of their seafood dishes and a martini to start with. Thanks a... More

I had a portobello ravioli in mshroom cream sauce and it was brilliant -- one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. My wife had the filet mignon in green peppercorn sauce and felt let down by a fairly tough cut of meat. Ate here a couple of years ago and both had excellent food, so maybe theas just... More

We came here for our 2 year anniversary and had a wonderful time. I believe the food is decently priced and the atmosphere was perfect. It was really easy to enjoy your food and have great conversation.The complimentary bread was delicious along with our entrees.

It went perfect with our meal. The food was delicious and visually appealing. The restrooms were clean and without odor. We will be back, and we will... More

Who would think you'd find excellent Italian in old town La Mesa? We come down to visit our son at SDSU and have had an excellent dinner here every time we've visited. Ambiance, food and service have been excellent every time.

The outside looked inviting and we were pleased with the inside decor and the attentiveness of being greeted and seated as soon as we entered the restaurant. I thought, "Wow, this is going to be a nice dining experience." Well, we were seated... More

We've just left Trattoria Tiramisu. Gerald was not only our waiter but the owner of the restaurant, he is truly top notch all the way. The food was delectable, the service was amazing not only by Gerald, but his busboy Carlos was the best I have ever seen in any service based business! We were just walking by the restaurant,...
