A word from Cafe Tiramisu
Cafe Tiramisu is an attractive, modest trattoria outfitted with stylized murals of Pompeii and other Roman ruins. Located in the heart of the financial district but you will feel like you are in Italy.

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a group of 8, everyone was very pleased with their choices. Place is a little small, so you don't feel like spending extra time there. The fish entrees were a bit on the small side, but the salads were great and Italian dishes were ample. Very good food."

  • "Excellent food, outside table with heaters and great food made this an excellent choice for a lunchtime meeting with a new hire."

  • "This was my forth visit to Cafe Tiramisu and the only one which was disappointing in any way. While the food and service has always been great before, this time neither were. To start with, even though I was the only one on the patio at the time I finally gave up waiting for someone to come out for a drink order and went inside to get it myself. For food we ordered the spicy clams as an appetizer. The cook must have mistaken the salt shaker for the pepper flakes because there was no spice but lots and lots of salt. When our main course came both pasta dishes were severely over cooked. The sauces were good but the noodles were soggy. We would have complained and sent them back but again, no one came out to see how the meal was."

  • "The food here was very good, a little overpriced for what you get but either way still good. However, the service was a not at the quality it should be, plus the restaurant itself needs an update The building needs some fix up, as do the menus them selves."

  • "Café tiramisu was fantastic. I had the octopus appetizer and thought I was in Italy or Croatia, followed by a great pasta. Also try the sole. A great spot with great service."

  • "We enjoyed the food very much and the dining experience. The only draw back would be the lack of parking near the restaurant."

  • "I chose this restaurant based on a Check, Please! review - KQED. My group of 4 was seated inside at the front in an almost empty restaurant which led to encounters with busy wait persons. We did not ask to be reseated. My orders of spring roll appetizer and Squid Ink Spaghetti with crab meat and jalapeno were well prepared. Spaghetti rated a 4 for me. 2 fellow diners were not thrilled with their ravioli orders so I give an overall food rating - 3. We agreed the tiramisu was soggy, without even a hint of rum flavor. The marscapone custard was creamy and well flavored but overall a disappointing dessert for a restaurant named Tiramisu! After the great spaghetti dish I would return at least once to try other dishes and other desserts."

  • "My best friend takes me to dinner every year, and this time we wanted to try something new. Café Tiramisu hit the mart from the Caesar salad, the petrale dore and the crowning glory, Tiramisu. Lovely décor and nice and quiet on a Sunday evening. Plus parking is really cheap at Sutter Stockton garage on Sundays!"

  • "This restaurant had a great vibe to it. The entrance was in an alley and my girlfriend and I were able to sit outside where it was not cold at all. Luckily, there is a tent. The food was amazing and the waiter was awesome! the only critique I have is that since it is in an alley, the ground was wet around the area where the sidewalk met the road (a very small thing)."

  • "Café Tiramisu was prompt at seating us for our lunch reservation however the décor, service and food left a little to be desired. The seats of the chairs were all stained and old, the walls had cracked paint. The food overall was ok, I have had better for the price in downtown SF. The lettuce of the cesar salad we shared was soggy which was disappointing but my chicken entrée was served hot and had good flavor. Our waiter got the job done however when asked questions seemed frustrated and ready to give you the easiest answer, not necessarily the correct one."

  • "Take a trip to Italy without leaving San Francisco! Every entree, appetizer and dessert is made with the utmost care, quality ingredients and artistic presentation. Delicious food and service with Italian charm and joy! Live well... visit Cafe Tiramisu! ( Did not check wine list but suspect it is notable)"

  • "Reminded me of a real Italian restaurant in Lucca. Some private tables but mostly long tables accommodating many guests...just like Italy! The food was absolutely delicious. I had a past dish with a bolognese sauce. My husband had the very special short ribs..to die for! Excellent all the way around!"

  • "Had lunch with a couple of friends at Cafe Tiramisu and availed of the dine-about-town menu for lunch. It has been a while since we had dined here, and we were glad to have done so again. We were seated inside on a late Friday afternoon lunch, so ambience was good with no crowd. Had the butternut squash soup and was excellent! This was followed by the main entree, pappardelle, and was also good! I especially loved the soup, though!"

  • "Turn into Belden Place and keep going past the other tempting restaurants until you reach Tiramisu. The food is off the scale for quality. The prices are reasonable (more than reasonable in spendy San Francisco). The wine list is extensive and the staff can give you really good advice it you're not sure. You look around at the nifty decor, you scope out the other diners, you chit chat for a bit, and the food starts coming. GREAT FOOD. Carefully calibrated portions so you don't feel overstuffed. Nicely timed dishes so you are neither rushed nor kept waiting. And don't forget dessert! It is one of the most satisfying restaurants I've ever patronized. I go back every time I visit San Francisco, and I'm more delighted with every visit."

  • "I’ve been dining at Café’ Tiramisu every time I get to San Francisco for the last 15 years. Whether dining inside or outside, the atmosphere is like being at a restaurant in Italy. The food and service are consistently good. I’d like to see the Chilean Sea Bass back on the menu. It was always excellent."

  • "It was an usually beautiful, pleasant evening in the City and as soon as we walked around the corner and saw the alleyway lit up with lights hanging across the roofs, I knew it would be a great experience and I wasn't disappointed. We were able to get a table for 5 outside and only had to wait about 30 min. on a Saturday evening. We chose the familiar calamari and bruschetta appetizers and they were exceptional. Everybody ordered something different (risotto, pasta, steak) and there were no complaints."

  • "Nothing special, and the veal scaloppini was too, too salty. Would NOT go out of my way to ever go again. Disappointing after CHECK PLEASE review! VERY disappointed. This restaurant has NOTHING over any run of the mill north beach Restaurant, and not as good as most! I shall stick to PERBACCO, and TONY's, thanks!"

  • "The food here was fantastic! Our servers was very attentive and did a great job of making our experience special. We ordered an appetizer, salad, pasta entree and dessert and everything came out perfect. The timing of the food was great and presentation was fabulous. Of our choices, I highly recommend the scallops, which were perfectly cooked and the pork loin that was paired with a tasty goat cheese and berry sauce. A great combination of flavors. We picked the donuts from dessert and could not have been happier! They were heavenly! The perfect end to a perfect meal! Will def recommend this place to other people looking for a good italian spot. Amazing food and very friendly staff!"

  • "Disappointed. Saw great reviews/stars so picked this place to take my team out for our holiday lunch. Made reservations. The minute we stepped inside, the owner (?) stated that he could seat us a a tiny table right by the front door where we could linger, or put us at a downstairs, more comfortable table, as long as we left by 1:15 - since he had another reservation at that time. Question: why not seat his 1:15 reservation at the front door...? I know he was trying to be fair to us. Regardless, no desert or coffee was offered. Gave us our bill and essentially told us to leave. It was astonishing. At a less busy, I'm sure it would be better. I won't give it a second chance tho - too many other great restaurants."

  • "4 of us went to dinner and the food was excellent. We started with scallops as appetizers and then to our main entree. Service up to the point we received our main entree was great. But after that, service went downhill. Our empty plates stayed on the table for a good 30-40 minutes and we had to snag our waiter to get his attention. We were celebrating 3 birthdays and because of the bad service, we wanted our check n got out of there. It was clear they were short staffed with bus boys & waiters on a busy Saturday night."

  • "Each year we spend a weekend in SF with our friends. We always choose an Italian restaurant for dinner. Café Tiramisu was close to our hotel and came with good recommendations. We were not disappointed. The Café was cozy ,comfortable, and pleasant with Italian charm. My husband and I chose the house signature dish of Bolognese. It was wonderful. The appetizer salad was also very good, fresh and light. Our friends chose other pastas which they enjoyed but felt when they returned they would also order the signature dish. Our server was friendly, efficient and helpful."

  • "Based on "Check Please" review I was excited to visit. However, Cioppino without crab in crab season? Our server was the "owner" who we found disinterested in our table - perhaps we needed to speak Italian to receive any acknowledgment or appreciation of our presence. . He should NOT be a server."

  • "Tables were very close together and the atmosphere was generally noisy making it easier to hear the conversation at the next table than that of your dinner partner. Service was sporadic and lackadaisical - almost an afterthought to the waiter. The food, however, was very good but overall it was not a great dining experience."
