It is always a very pleasant experience dining there. I have taken co-workers who have not dined there before and everyone has had a very enjoyable experience.

The service was prompt, friendly, and professional. Food was presented nicely. Recipes had a small touch of originality and flare. The coconut sorbet was my favorite. It's a small location that seems to be very attractive to small groups.

A perfect place to spend an anniversary ( like we did ), or just a night out with your date or friends. Personal service that you just can't get at a chain restaurant. The menu was enticing, and the food was excellent. They know their wines and the modern Italian music playing at just the right level, added to the experience without taking away from the ambience at our table. Can't wait to go back!

We can't say enough about
We can't say enough about this wonderful restaurant! The staff is exceptional as well as the food! Our son requested something that wasn't on the menu and they didn't even blink an eye to make it and the picky eater that he is devoured his plate!

We have been dining at Il
We have been dining at Il Tiramisu for several years now, on and off.
The owners are exceptional in their hospitality and the service is great. We are always made to feel very welcome.
The starters are always delicious (in this instance my wife and i shared the fried calamari) and the entrees are reasonably priced and offer excellent value; specials are great too and won't break the bank. Desserts - yummy.
We can't wait to go again!

Relaxing atmosphere & good food.
My third time there. Very friendly wait staff and management. On my latest visit, I let them know that we had two guide dogs in our 5 person party and they provided the perfect table.
Quiet, unhurried atmosphere, especially as compared to some of the other notable SO Ventura Blvd. restaurants, whose previous successes can cause them to take their customer base for granted.
Food wise, the lasagna is to die for-- the only dish I've had thus far. Everyone else in my parties have also been very pleased with their respective meals.
Most recent visit included two guide dogs in a party of five.

I`ve dined at Il Tiramisu
I`ve dined at Il Tiramisu many times since it opened years ago. I`m always greeted warmly! The food is reliably good and I`m really happy that the restaurant is once again open for lunch.
A neighborhood gem.

Out of towners take note
If you're looking for a really nice friendly neighborhood Italian restaurant this is it. The food is hard to beat. All 3 of us enjoyed appetizers and entrees (grilled salmon, chicken park and lasagna. Desserts were great finish -- hazelnut gelato, creme broulee, and tiramisu. High recommend.

I`ve been to Tiramisu many times over the years and have found the food consistently good. The ambience is cozy and one is always warmly welcomed.
Great for lunch!

Happy Birthday, Papi.........
I selected TIRAMISU for my husband's birthday dinner party of four and am excited about returning when my family arrives in two weeks. We were treated with both warmth and professionalism while being served exceptional cuisine. We had the corner table facing the oil paintings of jazz greats like Billy Holiday. May I suggest a mix of Latin jazz and jazz of decades past through present may better complement both the decor and the old school elegance of TIRAMISU rather than the more club like mix that makes one want to dance rather than enjoy the ambiance and fabulous meal offered at this neighborhood gem.

This is a great place, I had my rehearsal dinner their a few years ago, it is by far, my favorite Italian restaurant in the Valley. I had not been there for a little while and Peter and Ivo did not miss a beat and asked about the family, It was like visiting old friends.

My wife and I couldn't wait until the weekend, so we decided to have dinner at Il Tiramisu last night. We started with their beet salad, and a couple glasses of a terrific Italian red ( sorry, the name escapes me). Both were fantastic, and no one does a beet salad like they do. For fresh fish lovers ( like my wife), we recommend that you try the Baramundi ( Australian sea bass) , it was on special last night , but they offer it quite often because it's fantastic.....lemon, olive oil and a touch of rosemary. I was in the mood for pasta ( as usual) so tagliatele ( wide, ribbon-like pasta) with lamb ragu for me. Once again a wonderful night at Il Tiramisu, and as usual, the food is only surpassed by the service!

One of my fave restaurants. The owners are on site every night and treat their customers like royalty. Great food, service and ambiance and very reasonably priced.

They Helped Seal a First Date
Food is great, no doubt about that. The dessert is amazing; tiramisu is quite good -- and that's coming from someone who doesn't like coffee. Ambiance is very good and a romantic restaurant overall. The noise level was a little high for my taste in a restaurant like this, but it was easily forgotten once dessert came.
The cherry on top? I placed in a special request for a note to be written and delivered with dessert (I knew we'd order dessert ahead of time). They did it! Note was typed up and printed on restaurant-branded paper and put inside an envelope that was placed on the table with dessert. She opens it up, reads it and blushes a cute shade of red leaving her speechless that it was pulled off so elegantly. Yup, I'd call that a win.

terrific service as always...
I don't think that I have ever been in a restaurant with better, more caring service. The food is wonderful but the owners and staff even better. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Tried and True
Always nice ambience, nice greeting, nice food. Can always count on a lovely evening, does not disappoint.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've lived near this restaurant for more than 25 years...never went until last Friday. What a fantastic restaurant!!!! Where have I been? It's so cozy --you feel like you're eating at someone's home. The food was spectacular. I had the special beet salad that was off the chain!!!! Our group also had pizza (yummy), lasagna (so fresh and delish), and the seafood pasta special --totally fresh and perfectly cooked! The desserts were also outstanding. Great wine list...very friendly owner. A wonderful evening!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed being greeted by owner Evo, and his personable way of welcoming me in. You can tell he takes a proprietary interest in the restaurant. Waiters were excellent and accommodating. My friend and I each had one glass of wine, an appetizer and we split an entree. They seem to understand that many people don't eat dairy and pointed that out - without me having to ask -- that the soup of the day was dairy-free.
Chicken entree prepared with artichokes, tomatoes was light and delicious.
I would definitely go back.

Every course was excellent
Il Tiramisu has been around for a long time, and the pasta has always been excellent, but in years past have felt sometimes that the service was not so good or I got seated in an undesirable location, and have been disappointed. But we were there on Saturday night with another couple, and it was surprisingly uncrowded.It filled up more as it got a little later. I had the special salad, which was marinated beets, and it was superb.
The salmon with zucchini was excellent and the chocolate mousse cake was excellent. Friends enjoyed the ginger carrot soup, and the sorbet. Service was very attentive but not overly so. I'll start going there more often.

An all around gem.
Consistently excellent food and presentation; always treated as a guest never as a customer; refreshing and reasonably priced wine selections.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ambiance, great food, great service...total package. Informed staff at time of booking that we were celebrating husband's birthday. They surprised him with a piece if tiramisu presented with a candle and Happy Birthday sprinkled in chocolate. Classy! We'll definitely return. PS the bread is amazing.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten here at Il-tiramisu many times over the years and the excellence has always been top notch....the food, the service are great so we keep going back again and again...and each trip does not disappoint....it remains at the top of or list of favorite restaurants here in the San Fernando Valley....

Tiramisu is a Winner
One of my favorite dining spots in the Valley, Tiramisu is a wonderful choice for lunch and dinner. The food is always tasty and fresh, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is warm and inviting.

Why We Keep Going Back
There are a lot of restaurant options on Ventura Blvd. But I don't think you will find any that caters to the customer the way they do at IlTiramisu. Run by a Father and Son team, everyone on the staff is watching out for your every need.
Now for the bread story. So they have this great bread they bring out right away. My husband and son polished off the 1st basket in 2 seconds. "Would you like some more bread?" "Yes!" Another basket was brought out. Again, my skinny 15-year old put it away. But that is not the story.
The story is about the 3rd basket. No one would DARE ask for a 3rd basket and the owner knew that. But he also knew the skinny kid would want more. Did he ask if we wanted a 3rd? No, he just brought it. Now, that is service.

Ordinary evening became special
Lovely European vibe. Excellent service: there when you need them, but never intrusive. We ordered the specials and everything was delicious, especially the savory crepes. Dessert was amazing. The only negative in this experience was two loud individuals at the table next to us whose voices dominated the room.

My wife and I decided to take our son and his lovely girlfriend out on Tuesday night because weren't able to spend Thanksgiving together this year. Naturally we all voted to go to Il Tiramisu! All I can say is.....it was the perfect choice! We started with our favorite
" house salad " (the best dressing on earth) and we each had a different entre. Needless to say, everyone's plate was clean shortly thereafter. The pastas and ribeye steak were all done to perfection and the experience was enhanced by truly, European style service. We all enjoyed the bottle of fine Chianti and the modern Italian music playing in the background. It's the perfect spot for a special family occasion where you can talk, laugh and feel fantastic!
