The busboy was extremely rude in the way the food was delivered and when the plates were picked up. He also put the bread in front of my husband instead of putting in in the middle of the table. A shame because the food was good.
Great food, service & atmosphere!
Fresh pasta, great portions, nice selection of food and wine. Staff was top notch from the second we walked in the door. We will definitely be back
Great pasta, fish and steak. A truly wonderful meal with the usual top-notch service. Grazie!
Every Italian restaurant pales in comparison. We eat here maybe 4-5 times a year but the fact that they remember us, remember our wine, anticipate our orders means a lot. Beyond the service the food is by far the most outstanding representation of Italian cooking in DC. We've never had a bad meal here. It is always fantastic and anytime the truffles are in season go ahead and splurge - they are absolutely sublime.
Perfect food and frIendliest staff & manager
Wonderful restaurant for a special occasion with great food and service
We were pleased the hostess responded and changed our table. The bread and lobster with linguine was outstanding. Wine pour was so-so. Ambiance is like an Italian grotto and very cozy and atmospheric. Many waiters to assist. We've recommended Al Tiramisu in the past and will come again.
Very pleasant from start to finish.
I eat here often. Clearly something went wrong. The quality was absolutely missing. Sent my first meal back.... I have never done that before! Anywhere. The second choice was also below par.
Sad. This place is convenient and has always been so reliable.
My favorite restaurant in Washington. Excellent food and ambiance. Luigi is an artist and Najia is sunshine.
From the moment we walked in and being greeted with “buona sera” we knew we were in the right place. We sat down and were greeted by Chef Luigi. After speaking to him and wanting the full experience we handed over our palate to him and let him work his magic. Each course was incredible and we left delightfully full. I highly recommend Al Tiramisu and we will be frequenting Chef Luigi when we are in town. Thank you Chef
My favorite Italian Restaurant in DC. Luigi and the staff are wonderful. Great food in cozy setting that reminds me of a small ristorante in Italy. Pasta dishes and fresh grilled fish are superb.
Simply this is the best restaurant in DC. They offer simple food perfectly done, which is extremely difficult. Most restaurants fancy themselves to be "creative" or "new," but 99 out of 100 simply provide you experimental junks. Being Japanese, I appreciate Tiramisu's approach of reduction like visiting a beautiful zen temple.
I had the gnocchi, which were excellent. I got them with the veal ragu rather than the cheese sauce. My wife had the polpette, which she said were only fair. We shared the salad of the day, and had glasses of a red wine recommended by the waiter. It was good, but not quite great. It was a pleasant meal on a quiet Sunday night.
Still one of the best restaurants in Washington!
We love this restaurant. It’s a gem near DuPont circle. It does get noisy so go early.
Disappointed. Wait staff was nice but somewhat robotic and lacked ability to engage customers. They were focused on running through talking points on specials. Also, I ordered the gnocchi and it was not good. The dish was drowning in a light cheesy-like sauce. It looked and tasted like a heavy Mac and Cheese. That’s not the way gnocchi should be prepared. My guest ordered ravioli for a main course and although good, very small portion. For a place that’s been around for quite some time, very disappointing. Sad. We were looking forward to a really nice meal.
As an Italian, spoiled by my grandmother's cooking growing up, I think the pasta at Al Tiramisu' is made well. I have been several times now, and would recommend it to anyone. The only thing that surprised me on my last visit is that one of the dishes was significantly smaller compared to the others. The ravioli were delicious, but 6 rather small pieces of pasta aren't exactly filling, and also probably not worth $25.
Aside from this minor issue, I like this restaurant and think they make good pasta.
Fantastic food and service!!
Excellent gnocchi, branzino, clams linguine & pasta ragu. Empty plates by all.
Food was good, but not spectacular. Appetizer scamorze was tasty, pasta with fungi and wild boar stew also good, just not mind-blowing. Service was average. Because the restaurant is small tables are placed quite close and we had the unfortunate experience of being seated too close to a couple whose conversation was piercing.
Delicious food, great service, quiet and intimate. You will love this place.
Great food and great place produces a great dining experience
Great meal as always.
Excellent as always. Great food, knowledgeable and attentive wait staff.
We loved everything about it. It’s tucked away in a space I’ve walked by before and never noticed it. Spectacular service, delicious food.
Al Tiramisu is THE BEST Italian in Washington, DC. I'm still dreaming about the lobster fettuccini.
Great and flavorful Italian food. Very carefully prepared pasta and gnocchi, all homemade. Reasonable wines
Exceptional food and service.
I always love going to AL Tiramisu. The food and the service is outstanding.
Lovely as always
I love the food there. Last night I had sweet potato gnocchi with pecans. It was heavenly.
We are neighbors and comparative regulars at Al Tiramisu and looked forward to taking friends visiting from New York there for dinner. Al Tiramisu's two biggest draws are its food, which is consistently excellent, and the wait staff, which is personable, attentive, and usually charming. To our surprise and disappointment this time, the service was slow, inaccurate (two wrong orders for four people), and slap-dash. The bussing staff was rough and disinterested, shoving plates at us and reaching across the table repeatedly when it wasn't even necessary. We hope it was just a really off night, but it was a bad enough experience that we won't be going back to Al Tiramisu soon.
It is hard to find a top Italian in DC comparable to a fine New York City one. al Tiramisu accomplishes it. From the hostess with her warm welcome, to the helpful and knowledgeable waiter and staff, the environment pleased in every way If it was a little less expensive, I would come here often.
Good good, but rude staff. They made us feel unwelcome , removing plates before we finished eating, and got annoyed when we didn´t want appetizer. The restaurant was very noisy.
Exhausted after a transcontinental flight, I enjoyed a 6:30 dinner surrounded by attentive staff and a charming manager. What more could a person want! The food was delicious and not too salty. The white truffle was fresh and the aroma enticed me to eat every morsel.
The service was welcoming and we loved it all. Great suggestion for wine even when we didn’t want the most expensive wine.
