This was a terrific meal. We wouldn't typically go out for Italian food - easy enough to make. But went there because of location and great reviews. We agree with them. Food was excellent, had good wine for a reasonable price, service was perfect (there but not obtrusive), quiet so could have a nice conversation among 4 of us. Re "easy enough to make," entrees were excellent but they were pretty simple (in a good way) and we could indeed make them. However, the appetizers were superb - had a variety and no way we could either make them or buy them elsewhere. Good value - definitely a hit.

Very good Italian restaurant with an authentic feel to it. I had some great blackened Pulpo and the Tiramisu was excellent. The noise level was suitably low for a comfortable conversation with my friends. Convenient neighborhood, close to a metro station. I will come back to this restaurant.

Delicious authentic and fresh Italian cuisine. Homemade pasta and excellent customer service. I highly recommend the ragú the tomato tasted fresh the sauce had a good amount of meat and wasn’t too salty or too sweet. The olive tapenade was also very delicious.

Some of the food was delicious while other items were mediocre. We went for restaurant week and it also felt a bit rushed - the moment we finished one item, the servers immediately served us the next item...I compliment them for how attentive they were and they were quite friendly but it felt like they were rushing us through the meal, instead of pacing it out.

Very accommodating service. We had only limited time before a show and we managed an appetizer, pasta and a desert a mb d coffee. The only quibble I might have is that the pasta was a bit heavy and chewy. Prefer mine more al dente.

A favorite neighborhood spot, Al Tiramisu is always warm and welcoming. Absolutely lovely service, delicious pasta, good wine. The Branzino was good too, but wasn't hot- I was too hungry to send back and my friend was getting through her meal. Look forward to my next dinner here, will definitely speak up if my food's not hot enough!

Found it on yelp. Place was great. John our waiter was fantastic. Truly a great dining experience. He made our drinks as well and they were perfect. I had the lobster and pasta special hard to explain but my wife had the pasta and white truffle special, it was fabulous. Deserts were wonderful I have never felt more comfortable in a first visit to a restaurant

What an excellent evening! We were fortunate to catch the end of white truffle season. Oh my, the food Luigi put out. As we were enjoying the fresh pasta with parmigiano-reggiano served with freshly sliced truffles at the table, Luigi and Nadjia sat with us and had a little wine as we savored the exquisite food. That was the start, next we split a lovely light salad and an over-sized ravioli with more truffle and an egg yoke in the middle. The mains were fresh Dover sole and the pasta of the night. John's service was perfect as always. Without a very long diatribe, the easiest way to explain the food, the wine and the service; we have our local favorites in NH (where we live), ME and MA, but when we can, we travel to Washington to Al Tiramisu and build the trip around them. Thank you Luigi, Nadjia and John (with appreciated support from Ben and Armando). Bill and Julie

My girlfriend and I went to the restaurant for our NYE dinner and were not disappointed. The staff was incredibly friendly and professional, the food was nothing short of phenomenal, and we were overall thrilled with our experience. Al Tiramisu will remain a top pick for me when it comes to special events.

Service was super fast, sorry but I felt rushed, one hour for fine dining is not my kind of an experience. Food was generally good but not exceptional. Deserts were great. Overpriced for my experience.

Al Tiramisu was absolutely lovely! It was cozy, romantic, and the vibe was truly like a trattoria in Italy. We both had lobster dishes-linguine and risotto-and both were very good and full of lobster. The olive mix that came with the bread was divine! Service was incredible, and our waiter was particularly friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant for a date night, dinner with friends, or for anyone craving some delicious Italian!
