“Good food but busy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

Went to this restaurant on a Friday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary after reading some good reviews on this site. The menu has many good selections and the service is very attentive. The food is good and received quickly but the place is quite small with too many servers, which makes for a crazy atmosphere. Lots of activity and noise with tables close together so it is not a quiet dining experience. I would visit again but perhaps on a slow week night or in off season when the place is a bit more relaxed.

“Small but great Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Although this restaurant is located in a shopping center and is very small, the food is authentic Italian and fabulous. Tiramisu is a very busy place, and although the wait staff is very friendly, they are also very busy. Neverhetless, the quality of the food is worth it.

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Friends brought us here last week. We enjoyed it so much we went back 2 nights later. Homemade pastas, great bolognesi, super Osso Buco along with very good and friendly service in an attractive room make for a great night out. There are some very nice wines at reasonable prices to pair with your dinner. This is a first class joint.

“A real Italian !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012 via mobile

Rocco, a wonderful waiter who makes you feel at home! A nice garden/terrace which is a welcome change to the air-conditioned dining rooms. Inside, it feels like beingin a real Italian trattoria. Great Ossobuco, melting on your tongue with some good amount of marrow in the bone. As to the risotto, I would ask for a more "al dente" cooking - the "all' onda" side was good. Greatwine by the glass. A little smile by Marika, and the evening would have been absolutely perfect.

“Absolutely delicious - wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

A little gem in a strip mall - such a nice surprise!! Wonderful service, food and evening here!
We enjoyed a table outside with an Italian gentleman for our waiter - he really added to a great evening. Everything from the delicious soup to the ravioli to the "best ever" tiramisu was homemade, fresh and outstanding - great wine list also. Would absolutely go back next time we are here!
