Tiramisu is our go-to for good Italian fare, and we are happy to say that after several years, it is consistently wonderful. We love being able to walk the boulevard before and after our meals.

We were a party of 8. When we arrived they acted like they didn’t know we were coming. My mother is 81 years old and this stressed her out. The

This is not the first time we have been to Tiramisu Trattoria, nor will it be the last. The main thing that keeps us coming back is the quality of all the food, especially the sauces. However, the service is great and the service people are knowledgeable and helpful. The only complaint is that, for the last two times, they have not had all of their beers on tap working. A small disappointment for a beer drinker, but my wife is perfectly happy with the great section of wines.

This was a very nice dining experience. The fritti was great and so was the lamb shank. The pasta and salads were very good.

NYE dinner. Initial feeing was they maybe weren’t prepared for such a busy dinner schedule. A little unorganized and the staff was very overwhelmed. They had a special pre-fix menu. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs and fettuccini Alfredo and the bruschetta appetizer and everything came out quickly and hot. The food was delicious and NYE Prosecco was yummy too! Our waiter was nice and as attentive as he could be under the busy circumstances. Would return just maybe on not so busy of a night. We enjoyed our dinner just felt bad for the staff that evening.
Hoping they got to rest and have a nice New Years Day off!
Will be back in 2020 :)

Took out of town guests there this past Friday evening for dinner. Everybody was surprised and delighted by how delicious our meals were and the service was spot on - there when we needed something, but not hanging over the table. The braised lamb shank and the butternut squash ravioli were beyond outstanding!

The staff is always very nice and super helpful. My husband drank a lot of water and they were constantly coming back to top off his glass before it went empty! The food is also very good! We tried a prosciutto, mozzarella dog jam appetizer and it was amazing! I can’t remember the name of it. I also had the lasagna which was also very good. We then topped off the night with some yummy tiramisu!

Charming waiter!
Great food, bread basket and dipping oils were excellent,
Pasta sauce was rich and pasta was nicely coated,
My entree was delicious, as expected but rhe high quality of the
accompanying spaghetti was a very welcome surprise.
Very low noise level, great for conversation.
My first visit- we’ll be going back.

Tiramisu Trattoria is a gem of a place. I had five of my friends come down to San Diego from LA, and I wanted to treat them out to somewhere nice. When I looked up top restaurants in La Mesa, Tiramisu Trattoria popped up and I knew it was going to be good. What I didn't know was how good it would really be. The service was excellent. The server (forgot his name but he has an Italian accent) bonded with us and was very very polite. The food was exceptional. Probably the best margarita pizza and spinach ravioli I ever had. Just as I thought the night couldn't get any better, we order Tiramisu. My favorite dessert is Tiramisu, and I have had it at many high-in restaurants; however, Tiramisu Trattoria's beat them all. It was very delicious. I will definitely go back and will recommend this place to anyone!

Btw, I am Vegetarian and just want to state that there are a lot of options available.

I really love this place! It was my first time here and it exceeded my expectations. Overall it was just excellent. And I definitely will come back. It’s hard to find good Italian food but this was really good. The pumpkin ravioli was outstanding. And the egg plant Parmaggiana was equally awesome. Lemon Tiramisu was so light and flavorful. I loved it. The satellite TVs showing Italian TV was OK but it was a little bit distracting for my taste. And the spaghetti was overcooked (but just about every place in America over cooks it). It really should be served al dente. Overall thumbs up!

We arrived at 6 just as Octoberfest was ending. The power had gone out over the weekend due to the onslaught of power for the event. And yet our server was gracious and knowledgable even under the challenging circumstances. It was our first time at the restaurant. Our server's recommendations for wine and food were outstanding. And our food was delicious. We will definitely go back!

This restaurant is in the La Mesa downtown area. Although I've been in this area before, it was my first time here. I enjoyed my cioppino. There was plenty of seafood in my dish that I ended taking my leftovers home. My husband loved his bolognese and my son had the fettuccine alfredo. We all enjoyed our dishes and will definitely return.

We love eating here. Every item we have tried has been just fabulous and loaded with flavor. The service is excellent even when busy. It can get a bit noisy inside during peak times, but the tables outside are normally a bit more quiet. The wine list is very good. We have tried several off the list and have never been disappointed. Excellent restaurant with awesome Italian cuisine.

Lasagna lacked some flavor, but the other menu options look tempting. I liked the breadbasket and olive oil/balsamic provided to the table. Ambience was nice. Service excellent.
