    Everything from start to finish was amazing. We had the drink of the night which was very good and the espresso martini! Highly recommend having that drink. As a starter we shared the Burrata. It was very good, but I don’t think it is worth the price tag. We each had one of the specials for dinner. I had the lobster linguine which was absolutely amazing and my fiancé had the veal. The house red wine was very tasty. Both were great and I would definitely recommend to anyone who asks. For dessert we each had something different off the menu, Semifreddo al croccantino and Tartufo al cioccolato, they were both wonderful. We would definitely go back.

    This was my first visit to Al Tiramasu and I definitely will return. The food was excellent, the servings were generous and service was attentive without being bothersome. It isn't inexpensive but it is fairly priced given the quality.

    The food was delicious although not as spectacular as I remember. I brought a very important friend here who is new to the area as an intro to my favorite special places in DC and ended up being a bit embarrassed by the service. Although there was no one else in the restaurant at the time, our server kind of disappeared. Even the maitre d’ avoided eye contact despite us having that obvious look about us (heads up, searching eyes) that we were ready to order. Service did improve after we ordered and there was a crowd. Food was nicely prepared: we did love the salad with grapefruit that was a special, and other dishes we got (lamb, salmon with orange sauce, mussels special, butter sage ravioli) were perfectly delicious. If I was in the area, I might stop by if I had a hankering for very nice pasta, but it’s not anything for which I would go out of my way anymore.

    I am Italian and went here with 3 friends. It was like coming home! As appetizers we had burrata and mushrooms with goat cheese. Both very good, but in particular the burrata was amazing. Then, I ordered linguine with cherry tomato sauce and meatballs, and finally the tiramisu! All delicious, I could not have been more satisfied! Friends ordered tagliatelle with meat sauce, salmon, and truffle for dessert, all very satisfied!

    A cozy gem, with a fine staff and great food. The menu seems limited, but chef Luigi always has seasonal specials that take advantage of local ingredients. We had the fettuccine with veal ragu and the polpe—both were excellent. Salads were fresh, and the tiramisu was light and flavorful. Among the best ever for us.

    Love Al Tiramisu. What can we say, each time we dine, it's like being back in Italy in a mom and pop restaurant where the ambiance is welcoming, quaint and charming. Luigi the chef and owner greeted us at the door which is always welcoming. The service is amazing. Yoni our waiter is friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel like family. My wife and I have been patrons of this place since 2018 and celebrate many special occasions here. We were so happy that Al Tiramisu survive the pandemic and thriving. The food is the closest thing to dining in Italy and is a treasure in DC. We look forward to many more experiences and celebrations at this restaurant.

    Can’t deny the quality of every curated meal. You are left wanting more. The service is outstanding and you feel right at home alas this being your first time dining here. Every single detail is well thought out and seamlessly executed. The barista is excellent and the drinks delicious. The space is a little too intimate at times depending on the size of the crowd. Chef Luigi’s attention to his guests makes the experience that much more delightful.

    My only regret is that we didn't make it here over past years to enjoy. This is a not so hidden gem but is a great and intimate restuarant suitable for anything from a quick night out for dinner to something reserved for special occasions. The quality of food and service was outstanding. My wife and I were there for our 30th anniversary and the staff there was very kind to offer their congratulations (as well as a drink to enjoy in celebration). Will definitely go back soon.
