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.

As usual excellent food, prepared properly and nicely priced.
Not your usual "spaghetti" house. This is authentic Italian.
Only thing------after 18 months time to change the menu a bit.

both entrees were too salty. Had to ask server for to go boxes and bags. Server wasn't very attentive.
Great atmosphere, wine and lobster bisque was excellent.

Great little place. We only had bruschetta and salads but they were excellent. The service was outstanding. I would only recommend a few more options for wine by the glass.

Seafood sauces and pasta too heavy.
Barely any meat with other meal and sauces was watery. Not worth the prices. Bread dishes still had oil on them and had to be sent back. Service was very friendly and fried oyster were good.

We may have hit Cafe Tiramisu on a bad night. They served me someone else's dinner; and someone else mine. The rest of our party was almost finished by the time they sent the correct dish. Management never apologized or tried to make it right. The food was mediocre at best. Then they charged the table next to us for our drinks. Nothing was right.

I was happy to see that they had taken precautions to protect customers from the spread of Covid. This is the first time we have been to an evening out for dinner with guests and we were all pleased with the meals and service.

Tiny but first class all the way. Professional, efficient servers - never intrusive. Never felt rushed. Great menu with interesting and delicious specials. Almost always end up ordering the special which is never the same. Mahi Mahi dish last night was a new special and apparently I was the first to order so chef made a point of finding out what I thought. All he/she needed to do was look at my almost empty plate. Generous portions also.

Just straight-up excellent Italian cuisine and service. We enjoyed the tortellini carbonara with grilled chicken, scallops over mushroom risotto, and shrimp & scallops over bucatini. Topped it off with the chocolate ganache cake and tiramisu (of course!). Being from out of town, we were so happy to find this Raleigh gem. Definitely coming back the next time we’re in town.
