Food was decent, though there
Food was decent, though there is better Italian in Newtown for the same prices they charge. Service was little slow due to there only being one server, one hostess, and busser. We'll give them another try in a couple months once they've established themselves.

food was good well prepared.
food was good well prepared. They had trouble with the computer and we were not able to pay with a credit card,fortunate to have a check with us, in order to pay the bill.

Great food, abrupt waitress
Had a very good experience. Food was very tasty, good portions, very nicely presented, nice selection, fair prices. Owner introduced himself and circulated with enthusiasm. Suggestion: When the older waitress comes to a table she should begin by saying "Welcome to TT, my name is _____, I'll be your server, etc." Actually, she came to my table and began by saying "Here are the specials...." Could be much more welcoming.
I loved the penne putanesca.

The food at Trattoria Tiramisu
The food at Trattoria Tiramisu was truly delicious. We had dined there once before and the menu was more extensive at that time. It was before the grand opening and I think they were trying out some of the meals that didn't make it to the current menu.
The chef is very talented and everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. My only complaint is that it is very loud when the restaurant is full. I don't know if there's much that can be done about that, but if you require a more quiet setting, I suggest dining earlier in the evening (our reservation was at 7:30). All in all, it's worth trying.

A Great New Find!
Shared lunch w friends at this trendy BYOB Italian on Stae St. in charming Newtown. Food was sooo delicious and the owner was most personable and willing to share cooking secrets with my ever curious friend. Calamari a real treat as was the bolognese sauce. We all want to retun for dinner!

Personal service & excellent food
I've been here twice, and both times I was pleased with the quality of the homemade pastas. I've also tried two of their tiramisu options, and I find myself having random cravings for their classic version. (I wasn't as thrilled with the dulce de leche tiramisu; the coconut threw me off.) Lots of good choices on the menu to suit different moods and budgets; I'll definitely be back.

A Nice Saturday Night
Great tastes that came together very well. Don't miss the lamb meatballs over polenta or the spinach gnocchi.

Great Food - No Atmosphere
The good news is that the food here is fantastic, whether chosen off the menu or from the creative and inventive specials offered. The bad news is that the lighting is much too bright and the sparsely decorated room seems to amplify sound, so the boisterous table of six impacts everyone else's evening. The laminated menus at the table and the stack of take-out menus that greet you as you walk in the door scream pizzeria, although the food is so superior to that. We hope this place finds its stride, adds some sound-deadening fabric to its decor and dims the lights a little, because the food is that good.

Suprisingly superb food
Looking at the sign and the menu in the window the place looks like a standard pizzeria, but inside the atmosphere is cozy, and the menu is authentic italian cuisine. Calimari was tender and lightly breaded, veal was flavorful and in generous portion, and the squid ink pasta was delicious. And as a BYO, prices were very reasonable. Must go there again.

Good food, nice ambience
One in our party loved the veal parm. I loved the pasta fagoli, but I wasn't crazy about the chicken dish I got. Way too much butter was used to make the sauce. I actually couldn't finish it because of that. I would go back, but I would order something else. Nice ambience, too.

We enjoyed the food and atmosphere of this little store front BYOB in the heart of Newtown, PA. Nice selection and tasty desserts. We had soup and salad to start and after our main dish enjoyed the Tiramisu. It was a nice experience.

Great for Lunch
I was happy to find this new restaurant in Newtown. I went there for lunch with two other co-workers. The inside of the restaurant is new, neat, and clean, with a comfortable setting. The lunch menu had quite a variety of choices, enough to make you want to come back and try another meal. Actually, however, none of us ordered from the menu. Instead, we each ordered the "Express lunch" (it was described to us by our server), which included a salad choice, an entrée choice, and a dessert choice - all for one price. It was a great deal! The food was ready quickly and everything was fresh and delicious. The servers were very friendly and attentive. I would recommend Trattoria Tiramisu for lunch and I will return sometime for dinner.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good. The staff was attentive and friendly. The tables are situated a comfortable distance apart. It is not noisy. It was our second time at the restaurant. We enjoyed it and our guests loved it.

Great new find in Newtown
The food was very fresh and tasty. It brought me back to Italy! The service was fast and staff very friendly. The chef/owner stop by every table at the end of the night and asked all of the guests if they enjoyed their meals. This place is byob, which is also great for parties :)
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll be back to Tiramisu
First time at this BYOB restaurant. Great variety, and the pasta we tried was very good. Charming waiter who was very attentive. We'll be back!

AMAZING FOOD! MUST TRY!!
I just ate at this restaurant with a group of 9 people and every single one of us LOVED our meals. The food is truly amazing from the appitizers to dessert! The mushroom ravioli, lobster ravioli, and spinach gnocchi were three of my favorites. The tiramisu was incredible! My husband and I eat out A LOT and so I can honestly say this meal was WONDERFUL! It is also priced great. It can definately stand toe to toe with any Center City/South Philly Italian restaurant! We will, without a doubt, be back soon! Well done chef!!!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
right in my own back yard (almost)
2nd time dining at tiramisu and i ordered the same thing as before.....the eggplant parm! it was absolutely fabulous both times! that is probably what i will order the next time! we were 6 people and everyone loved his/her meal! pasta was deeeelicious and the red sauce was outrageous! everything cooked to order so it is a leisurely meal which is a good thing!

We enjoyed our impromptu visit so much the first time that we brought our good friends with us and booked a reservation. We were seated right in front of the entrance which made it both noisy and uncomfortable for one of our guests, but the food made up for it. My husband ordered the Chicken Marsala and it was as delicious as the last visit. I ordered the shrimp and scallop special and the sauce was mouth watering!!! Our friends ordered Lobster Bisque and had the Chicken Parm and Lobster Ravioli which were given two thumbs up! We of course ordered the Caramel Tiramisu and cappuccino to round out our meal. We would come back again, but next time, we would like to have a different table.

Great addition to State Street
In looking at the menu on line, we thought that it was just another Italian restaurant in Newtown, but decided to give it a try anyway. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the dishes were well thought out and well prepared, not your run-of-the-mill Italian. Our server was friendly and made us feel welcome and unrushed, even on a slow Tuesday night in the summer. Excellent bruschetta and linguini with clams!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My visit to your restaurant came highly recommended and lived up to all my expectations! The mussels I had were fabulous. They were well seasoned and served in a savory red sauce. I also had the calamari which was cooked to perfection with a very light coating and a flavorful tomato sauce. The veal shank I had was terrific and fell off the bone.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Welcoming and Delicious
We were greeted by the chef/owner and he described the evenings specials. He was eager to accommodate our requests and we enjoyed an excellent dinner. Very pleasant atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome, almost like part of the family. Great dining experience.

Been here many times. Service
Been here many times. Service is always attentive, dinner specials are very good and the menu has enough choices to meet all palates. Save a trip in town, this chef knows what works, Did I mention the tiramisu !!!

Not just another Italian restaurant
Loved it! Great meal. Great service. Can't wait to go back. Quality food and ingredients with a pretty presentation and not just another spaghetti spot.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Selfishly, I almost don't want to write this because this place is unknown, but great. 6 months new. Great attentive service. The italian food here is some of the best my family of four have ever eaten. Fresh, perfectly cooked, authentic. Seafood flavorful and cooked to perfection. My daughter is a vegan and said that this is her new favorite restaurant. Salads crisp, dressing delicious. If you like tiramisu, don't eat for a week, and then try each of the different types of tiramisu they serve. A bit pricey, but for this quality of service and food, worth it .The owner Sammy, is the chef and a server at the same time. Sounds ominous, but since this place is mostly unknown, it works. He's a stickler for details. A winner in Bucks!! Finally!!

From the street you would never imagine the food inside. Climb up the stairs and step inside, go sit in the pleather chairs and enjoy homemade Italian food. The pasta was amazing you could taste love in the way they prepared each dish. Unfortunately I was not a fan of the appetizer as our bread was so hard I thought I was going to break my teeth but the fresh bread with the tangy olive oil was exceptional. Then came our meals and we ordered what the two specials were for the day. Definitely not your typical lunch portions, YOU were eating the biggest meal of the day. The sauces were perfectly done and the pastas were divine. I would highly recommend this neighborhood gem.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the food,everything was wonderful. Served hot and well spiced, not thrilled with the bread.
9/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
A wonderful addition to the
A wonderful addition to the Newtown area. It was charming, service was excellent, the host was very friendly. Most of all, the food was excellent and we will definitely return. It wouldn't be ideal for a large group but 4 or 6 at the most as it's a store front location. We will definitely return.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding service and food. The eggplant parm is fabulous and the side order of meatballs really were great. Caesar salad was nice size and great to share. Loved it so much we are going back on monday night for the all you can eat mussels with pasta.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good...the service was a little on the slow side. The special was very expensive...next time I will ask.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good or not?
We went out with a party of 4. Made reservations and had our table ready when we arrived. Service was okay but the food was really fresh and tasteful. Ambiance was also very good and it was perfect for a double date. I would definitly recommend the bruschetta as an appetizer and the chicken param was also excellent. I stole a lobster ravioli from my wife and that was also very good. Can't forget dessert, the teramisu was out of this world. I will definitly be back.

Excellent food but a bit noisy

Save room for dessert
They have a variety of tiramisu desserts as well as other delicious treats. I had pumpkin cheese cake w/ crushed pecans and it was probably the best cheesecake I've ever tasted. Service was great and the entree was also delicious.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Italian cooking
tiramisu will become our new favorite restaurant in the Newtown area. The service is friendly and items like homemade pasta, tasty veal, and yummy tomato sauce make eating there a treat. The only drawbacks we found were the noise level, if you happen to be seated near inconsiderate people, and the draftiness, which will get worse as winter approaches.

Hidden Treasure of Newtown
Delicious food. BYOB. Great service. Perfect for a special occasion or make it a regular stop. Definitely new reservation since dining room is small. But you wont feel crowded. You won't be disappointed.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent food and service
The owner - chef is obviously very proud of what he serves. He has visited us at the table several times. Our waitress was knowledgeable and appropriately attentive. Great BYOB Italian restaurant. Great setting on State Street in Newtown, Bucks County.

Great lunch menu
Very economical, 3 course lunch, including homemade soup, salad, choice of entrees (I suggest the juicy chicken parm with rigatoni, if offered) and chocolate cannoli. $10!!! Hope that special continues! Don't forget that it's BYOB. Great food, attentive and athletic wait staff. :) You will be happy you went
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Italian food!!!
I ordered off the regular menu. I had the house salad and Veal Portofino. It was absolutely delicious!!! I can't wait to go back. I didn't have any room for dessert, unfortunately. Newton is a great little town and we are looking forward to exploring it more.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We attend the yearly Newtown Christmas House Tour, and have had some very poor restaurant experiences. Trattoria Tiramisu was a wonderful surprise. The food was outanding, the service pleasant and informed, the setting comfortable. Just as advertised, it is a neighborhood gem! We plan to visit Newtown in the near future just have lunch at this restaurant again.
