Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, Cafe Tiramisu offers a menu full of authentic Northern Italian cuisine. The family-owned and operated restaurant is decorated sparingly and the dining room is a cozy, relaxing environment. Cafe Tiramisu has a full bar but specializes in wine with an extensive wine selection both by the glass and by the bottle.





Try the ravioli or the shrimp dip to start out your meal at Cafe Tiramisu. Choose from Italian classics like the lasagna or the marsala. The menu includes plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options as well. Choose one of the restaurant's sides for your entree like the fried eggplant or the sauteed spinach.

Amazing restaurant.
The food and drinks were incredible.
The one thing that really made this such a positive experience was out waiter, Rhett.
From the moment we sat down he was attentive and welcoming.
It's hard to do with the portion size, but try to save room for dessert.
Just became our new favorite restaurant.

My new favorite place in Raleigh! Don’t let the name fool you... they don’t just specialize in desserts. The whole meal was outstanding. Definitely try this place out. The food was delicious.

Enough of GrubHub, and DoorDash, we need to eat out again; it’s been too long.

So armed with a couple of Cafe Tiramisu gift cards from Christmas, we made reservations.

Staff at the front were inviting and courteous. Our server (Brian?), was on top of his game. The bread was to die for. My Lobster Bisque was excellent as were my scallops over mushroom risotto. My wife loved her tortellini. Our wine - a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo was lovely. Desert? Well we were both so full, dessert was to go. Tip: if the soup of the day is lobster bisque, just order a cup. A bowl is too much as it is quite rich and filling.

And desserts were tiramisu and a cannoli - both consumed for breakfast the next day!!

Cozy, eclectic interior, soft lighting and non-obtrusive plexiglass partitions. Fantastic food, generous portions and freshly baked bread. Our server (Rhett?) was very friendly, helpful and patient when interacting with my teenage nieces. We have been here twice and intent to make this one of our regular spots. Thank you!

Cafe Tiramisu is a Raleigh GEM!! We went this past Saturday night for dinner and sat in the bar area. Tammi provided the most outstanding service. She made sure our meal and experience were beyond expectation. I overheard her recommending entrees to a couple who were there for the first time and provided a wine sampling to another couple who were trying to decide which bottle of wine to go with their meal. John and Bin also came by our table and it's always wonderful to see them both. If you frequent Cafe Tiramisu, you begin to know everyone there and it becomes like an old family friend, who is always excited to see you come by. We had the scallops (super yummy) and the chicken marscapone (if you haven't tried this entree, you are missing out). The food was amazing!!

We were seated promptly by the hostess and immediately greeted by Rhett, our server for the evening. He was professional and friendly and checked in with us often. He wore a mask and we were socially distanced from other tables. We felt safe dining here. The martinis were fantastic. The food was delicious. We had not eaten here since the COVID outbreak but it had always been one of our favorite places. If anything, it has gotten better. It was a perfect evening. We’ll be back soon.
