    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.

    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!!!

    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 :)

  • Great for Lunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/27/2013
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Great Food - No Atmosphere

    Dined on 5/10/2013
    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.

  • Banished to the Kids table
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 5/10/2013
    We reserved on Open Table. When we arrived our party of three was banished to the back dining room, although there were tables upfront. We were all alone the entire meal, as if we had been banished to the kids' table in the basement. Our meals arrived 45 minutes after the salad course. Very uncomfortable long wait. The front "parents'" tables wasn't even 1/2 full, so the kitchen couldn't have been overwhelmed. The delay spoiled the entire evening! Our first time and likely our last. Our server was very attentive though.

    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.

  • The food at Trattoria Tiramisu
    outwithfriends
    Dined on 4/27/2013
    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.

  • Recommended, but has growing pains.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 4/27/2013
    Overall, we had a great meal, price was reasonable, and staff warm & friendly. Some growing pains to overcome: waitstaff is very young & inexperienced, the owner/manager seemed to be carrying most of the weight. Their back room appears to be delegated to larger parties of 4 or more. I wouldn't recommend sitting here. The room has low ceilings (with ceiling fan), bad acoustics, no windows, and track lighting turned to full power (not very romantic). The front of the restaurant is definitely better. I would not recommend their cappuchino, - very weak and no foam. We ordered 2 desserts - a cannoli and orange tiramisu. I highly recommend both and continue to dream about them. I also recommend their Bronzino, which was superb.

    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.

    Would give zero stars if that was an option. AWFUL AWFUL AWFULWaited 2 hours for food that NEVER arrived.We were part of a restaurant-wide walk out. The couple next to us was waiting 2.5 hours. NO ONE GOT FOOD!!!Not only did we NOT get any food, no one ever came to apologize, explain, nothing. We kept being told that the manager would come but never did.So no food, out money for a sitter. The way I see it I am owed a meal! However, I doubt this place will be in business long.

    Well I'm not sure how to review this place, we were seated quickly upon arrival but then took awhile to be waited upon, which was understandable given that it was their grand opening and they were busy. Ordered our food and the appetizer came reasonably quickly and was fairly good. However everything fell apart then. First they came out 30 minutes later and said they had run out of the gnocchi's that my wife had ordered, OK not sure why it took that long to figure that out but she ordered something else. Then we sat and waited. And waited, and waited. an hour and a half later they were quite apologetic but could not commit to when our food would come out and that the cook was having "issues" in the kitchen. At that point we left.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    The kitchen was overwhelmed on this special 25% off opening night and it took 45 minutes to get our soup/salads and another 40 minutes to get our dinner. I hope this was due to "opening night". I will give them another try since I live nearby. The food was very good. I felt bad for the wait staff as it was obviously not their fault.

    Don't want to bash this new place bc newtown needs some new places to go Place nice, atmosphere nice, table by alcove miseralble, owner noticed & apologized. Please train staff & stop giving them a hard time; nice, but clueless, 3 diff people tried to give us water but we ordered sparkling (which they then did not have) kept trying to take everything away, 50 minutes for antipasto, really? but it was very good. halfway thru, here comes the entrees & we had to help clear the app away to make room. Still thought we might come back, but then...amatriciano too spicy to eat and bolognese just fair, spag came w it supp to be linguini...spaghetti MUSHY! Staff nice but not trained that is owner's responsibility so don't yell at them!

    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.
