    The salmon was a must have, along with the lobster linguine. Service was efficient, while also not being over bearing. Came for Mother’s Day but will definitely be coming back.

    Looking for a place to replace Otello's, this isn't it. Everything is very average, except for the " fresh parmesan" which is straight from the Kraft can.

    Simply fantastic. In town to visit my Dad’s site at Arlington Cemetery with my Mom. Came to Al Tiramisu and learned it means “pick me up.” That is their goal and that’s what they /it did. We celebrated by reminiscing over burrata with black truffle shavings and local honey, delightful lobster fettuccine and decadent lamb shank osso bucco with creamy polenta. And the tiramisu was in a class of its own. We had a wonderful time toasting my Father and enjoyed a truly remarkable meal. Will make it a tradition on our visits. Thanks to all for a lovely memory while awash with memories.

    Everything was excellent as usual. However, I wish they had closed the front door which was kept open to facilitate the outdoor seating area. It was warm enough before the sun went down, but it got colder and colder as the evening progressed.

    The dishes run the course from staples through a series of specials. All are very good to excellent. Last night the risotto was a little sticky; other nights it has been like the Sistine Chapel, perfect. The bill was unexpectedly high. The wine was vey good and expensive. Having groused about the price, in all fairness, I should make it real. The place is great -- the Master Chef must be the reincarnation of Michelangelo; the hostess is angelic, as my sister would be, if she were in such a position; the waiters are knowledgeable and droll. The veal was extremely juicy and tasty and significantly hot. There were a good array of fish. The desserts were grand. The tiramisu a work of art, others had the gelato which was great and affogato. I almost feel sorry about grousing about the cost. I would be happy to dine there most any night.

    As always, Al Tiramisu is flawless in every way from the moment you walk in thru out your meal, wine selection and dessert … this time and every time over the 15 years … always dine there when I’m in DC … and never miss truffle season, sadly I did the last three truffle seasons … damn you Covid

    It was a nice little place. Service and staff was really good. The spinach ravioli was not worth the money in my opinion. The portion was small, and it didn’t taste that great. The lobster risotto, however, was amazing.

    Not only was the service incredible from the minute you walk in the door and the food was divine, but George Clooney and Amal came in and sat two tables away from us. I can say it was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary! The staff treated us like royalty and were so great. The wine they picked was perfect. We both ordered off the specials menu and it was amazing. I highly recommend the burrata as an appetizer and the chocolate liquor for dessert!

    This was our first venture into indoor dining since Omicron hit. We had not been to Al Tiramisu in some time because of Covid. Everything was wonderful. We started with a glass of Prosecco each. We shared the arugula salad, which was nicely dressed. They split it for us in the kitchen, always a welcome sign of attention to detail. The breadbasket had wonderful bread and focaccia, and came with a delightful tapenade. We had gone with the intention to have two pasta dishes, but we were so attracted to two specials that we had those--my wife the lamb shank and I the pasta with 5 ounces of lobster. Were we glad! Both were outstanding. We also each had a glass of a nice Montepulciano, recommended by our waiter. Service was excellent, just the right amount of attentiveness. We had no room for dessert. All in all a wonderful meal and a welcome return to normal living.

    The only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 was our food was very rushed. They had served us our wine, appetizers, and entree within about 20 minutes. I don’t know if they thought we were a cheap table because we split three entrees and an app among four of us, but joke was on them. We stayed 2.5 hours. Ordered more wine, desserts, and after dinner drinks. Food was delicious and waiter charming.
