“A terrific Italian trattoria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Excellent Italian cuisine with superbly balanced flavors in every dish. Although not inexpensive, specials during the summer make it affordable. The sand dabs are cooked to perfection with a subtle wine, lemon, and caper sauce while the tiramisu is exquisite. The calamari is perfection-on- a-plate. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. Although the restaurant is often full (reservations are recommended during the winter season), the service is exemplary.

“Authentic Italian Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Tiramisu is a small restaurant which serves authentic Italian fare. The caponata served with bread is delicious. The pastas are home made, and the pasta sauces are subtle, not overpowering. Don't miss the veal ravioli. All of the tables have been full whenever we have visited, but the wait staff, although very busy, is very friendly and helpful. There is an outdoor dining area, but since the restaurant is located next to a strip mall parking lot it is not the most pleasant particularly when the weather is veery hot. Nevertheless, the food is so great that this restaurant should not be missed.
