Restaurant was closed when we got there despite having reservation and several reminders about it. Then when I tried to schedule another restaurant, open table wouldn't let me because I was "double booked"
Funny it says permanently closed in the title now but you are still looking for a review.
Not good for vegans but ok for vegetarians. My Caesar salad was not as good as the last time. My husband did not like his entrée or soup special. Vegans only had a lettuce salad with a different dressing. Every one else who ordered entrees liked what they had. Service was not great.
Food in the past was always great. Not so this time. Very average flavors and presentation.
The salmon was done nicely and the sauce is delicious. The soup and salads hit the spot. We will be back!
Nice little gem in downtown Newtown. Charming atmosphere, nicely decorated. My husband and I were seated in the back (windowless but still nice). Servers were attentive. I had the carpaccio appetizer (yummy) and the wild mushroom ravioli. The mushrooms were not stuffed into the ravioli, they were mixed into the dish. It was still tasty but I wouldn't order it again. My husband had the ceaser salad and the linguini bolognese. The salad was large. He enjoyed both courses. The restaurant was almost full, everyone seemed content. I would go back there again.
They serve up this great calamato oil dip that is very tasty with bread. With a name like Trattoria Tiramisu, the bread could have been more authentic, like Hoboken or Brooklyn bread.
It just so happened that both of our entrees and appetizer came over polenta. All of the proteins were cooked to perfection, but the polenta on all three plates was cold.
Are you ready for this... the water was absolutely perfect!! There is something to be said for a perfect tasting glass of water these days. Some owners don't think enough to filter the water they serve. This owner thinks it's important, and so do I. It shows the owner really cares about what is served.
We were seated in the "back room". It seems like this was a private party room or something, kind of cold, no windows, much less ambiance than the front of the house where we would have preferred to sit.
Overall, the experience was alright.
Perfection! At Christmas we were given a gift card to Trattoria Tiramisu. We decided to use it for Valentine's Day. We were not disappointed - everything was delicious too! I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or a romantic evening!
Excellent food excellent service
Not impressed. Servers seemed unorganized. Chicken was under cooked. Food just so so. Won't be back.
Dinner out at this restaurant was very nice. We were with friends and able to have great conversation. We had Lobster Bisque. It was very good -but had skimmed from sitting a tad to long. The veal dish was good/One friend had a flounder and shrimp francaise which he found tasty but a "little wet". I had the fish special with passion fruit. I found it quite tasty and different. Another friend was very pleased at the accommodation of her gluten allergy.
Our service was unrushed, because there was only one waiter and and one assist for the entire restaraunt. This would be a daunting task for anyone. We fortunately were not in any rush-but attention could not be given due to lack of staff. We also enjoyed that this is a BYOB-allowing all to enjoy the wine they prefer.
Second visit and it didn't disappoint. I started with the Lobster Bisque which was thick and tasty but could have used more lobster pieces. My spouse had the Caesar salad and nicely prepared with a sufficient amount of dressing. Our main entrees were Veal Saltimbocca and Wild Mushroom ravioli..both delicious and with leftovers to take home. BYOB makes this place really nice. Waitress wasn't very sociable but was very efficient and attentive. Overall another nice experience and will be back.
I brought guests from out of town. I was disappointed. Service was confused. I wondered if it was under new management. Owner not in evidence. Food was not as good as in the past.
Have eaten here twice. First time was excellent, ate in main room, good service and delicious. Second time ate in rear room, found it to be too loud as only one long table was occupied and room echoed. No bread was available as they were out and we were served toasted slices that were stale; not acceptable. Entree was excellent but Salmon was overcooked which I would blame more on my dinning companions who asked for their cooked well; even though I requested mine be cooked as the Chef felt proper. I feel I was served overcooked Salmon due to mix up in serving. Overall, I will go here again but hope for front dinning room; maybe with just my date next time.
The menu has changed with very few choices and the service from the kitchen was painfully slow. This used to be a favorite restaurant of ours, but we won't be going back.
The chicken parm was, once again, infamously fantastic. First time for the chicken marsala and that didn't disappoint either! You cannot go wrong here! Can't wait to come back again. Service is prompt and efficient. Food isn't crammed in your face (timewise) but just enough time between courses.
This was our second visit to Tiramisu only this time it was on a Saturday night and it was very noisy. Food was still very good and I would go back again, but probably during the week.
Went here with another couple. We were sat right away. Had made a reservation but really didn't look like we had needed one on a Saturday night....not a great sign. Crowd was older...60's. Only 1 waitress working. Not very social or friendly, but adequate. Food was priced fairly. All of us enjoyed our dinners. 3 of us got lobster bisque soup. While the taste wasn't horrible, there were NO pieces of lobster in it and the broth was too "flour-y". Disappointing. The one gentleman who served our desserts was very friendly. Not sure if he was the owner? Lemon cake was really good.
Excellent experience. Looking forward to going back with friends. Very attentive service. Excellent entrees. Pleasant surroundings and guests.
Have dined here many times. The food is usually excellent, but the ambiance could be a little better. Small place that is usually filled that could benefit from dimming the lights. A little pricey, but you save by bringing your own drinks.
You must try the Salmon with plum sauce. We also had the Bronzini fish. Delicious. We'd highly recommend this place
The restaurant was almost empty on a quiet summer Tuesday night, so we worried that it wouldn't be good. But Sammy the waiter was great, and when we got our food (including bronzino cooked in salt - not attempted by many chefs) we said "we'll be back". Very pleasant, with excellent food, truly a neighborhood gem.
The fresh mozzarella is the bomb. Had a great dinner. Try it
This restaurant always provides fresh, excellent food and outstanding service. The veal osso buco is the best around. The other guests really enjoyed the preparation and taste of the salmon and eggplant entrees. Two great features are that it is a BYOB and the wait staff is very attentive. It is my "go to" restaurant in Newtown, PA
We took Mom here for Mother's Day and everything was fabulous. We were seated in the back room which we enjoyed as it was quieter and very easy to have comfortable conversation. The olive oil dip was delicious! My mom andI had the Salmon alla Mario wich was absolutely fabulous. It is such a unique dish, with crabmeat, bruschetta and mozzarella. It was a generous portion and the accompanying mashed potatoes and vegetables were also very good. My husband had the spinach manicotti (Manicotti Verde) which he loved, and my dad had the chicken marsala which he said was excellent. The tiramisu for dessert was the perfect way to top off a great meal. I love the fact that they have several types of tiramisu. We tried dulche de leche and raspberry - both delicious. My husband had the limoncello cake which was also terrific. From start to finish, an excellent meal! Service was very attentive and most efficient as well. This was the third time I've been here and each time was a great experience.
great food and services. I recommend some background music
Ordered a veal dish, but asked if I could substitute chicken. When check came we were charged the veal price. Waitress said same price for veal or chicken. Never going back.
The service was outstanding and the food was very good. We had eggplant rollatini as an appetizer which was delicious. Both my husband and I had a veal dish as entrees. The veal was very tender. And for dessert we had the tiramisu. They had 5 different ones. Both of ours was outstanding. We would definitely return.
Do not ever go to this restaurant for a Holiday. We were sat upon arrival but the timing of everything else was horrendous. We didn't leave for 2 1/2 hours and that was with asking for our entree and dessert to go just so we could leave. Not one time did we see a manager anywhere in the restaurant. Its a shame because we have had one previous experience that was enjoyable.
I made a reservation via open table. I asked for a table in the back area. When we arrived the host said the back was full. I said ok, can we at least have a table away from the door? This caused the host talk to the server and there was a big fuss. The place empty at the time. The server said that opentable assigns the seats and the best she could do was 1 table away from the door. Ridiculous!
Tiramisu was recommended by a friend who showered the restaurant with great reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. From our waiter to ALL food prepared the evening was wonderful. Will definitely be back in the future.
My husband and I popped in for a quick lunch on a Saturday and we truly enjoyed ourselves. We'd been here before during the dinner service and were very happy to try their lunch menu, which is quite different than their dinner offerings. We'll be back.
Service was very attentive. Food was good, some nice specials offered. Were seated in backroom which was very quiet. Front room was a little noisier.
I've never had a less than stellar meal at this restaurant. I have a habit of ordering a special because I know it will taste amazing. And I'm a tiramisu fan so I try to order a tiramisu I've never tried, they always have 4-5 choices & I've never been disappointed.
This is a great BYOB located in the heart of Newtown PA. I had the Osso Buco and it was one of the best I ever had. My wife had the lamb chop special and she said it was great. Service was excellent. would have preferred white table cloths, but that was the only complaint.
From the minute we arrived, the service was spectacular. She quickly corked our bottle of wine and allowed us to go at our own pace. The eggplant was .....shhhhhh......better than my mom's. It was shaved so thin and layered so high....and no breadcrumb!! It was spectacular!!! I will be back for more!!
Two of us had living social deals for a party of four. We asked if we could have two separate checks so we could use our living social deals which were about to expire. We were told no by the blond waitress. She was very rude. So we said oh then we have to have different tables right? She was reluctant to even do that saying we made one reservation. Mind you the restaurant was empty!!! So finally she gave us separate tables but wouldn't let our tables sit side by side. She wanted to separate our group up. It was horrible customer service and for this alone, I doubt we will be back.
They need to learn to treat their customers with more respect. The food is good but so is the food at many places.
We went to the restaurant for the first time, and, based upon the reviews, expected superb food. We ordered the lamb meatball appetizer. It was delicious and we were excited about the rest of the meal yet to come. Had we found a new gem? We ordered the wild mushroom ravioli and the scarpariello. The mushroom ravioli was salty and completely masked any other flavor, including the taste of the home-made pasta. The scapariello was prepared as described. It was our fault that we did not note that it contained pepperocini. It was quite spicy and, once again, masked the flavor of the home made pasta. The service was great, and even though the restaurant was full, we had no difficulty conversing. We will likely give this restaurant one more try and hope that it lives up to positive reviews.
awesome restaurant. great food. and a BYOB! lobster ravioli is amazing
Our first time. Went early and restaurant was empty. Sent to back of restaurant - cold and drafty. Not sure why we weren't seated in the main dining room
Waitress was excellent
We stopped in here on the recommendation of friends, and were not disappointed!
