A meal at Tiramisu is a delightful and deeply personal culinary tour led by award-winning Chef- Restaurateur Luigi Diotaiuti. The experience is influenced by Chef Luigi's homeland of Basilicata, Italy, inspired by some of the finest dining establishments around the globe, and fueled by the freshest, local and seasonal ingredients available.
"Cozy, warm, and joyful" are the words most often used to describe Washington DC's "most authentic" Italian restaurant. A celebrity favorite for decades, Al Tiramisu provides all patrons a consistently exciting cuisine, allying authentic Italian fare with elevated touches. It is for this reason that they were awarded the coveted "Insegna del Ristorante Italiano," the seal of approval by the President of Italy. In 2013, Al Tiramisu was also awarded Slow Food DC's Snail of Approval award.
The Food arrives at your table at Al Tiramisu directly reflects Chef Luigi's dedication to elevating authentic, traditional dishes to new heights. He believes that food reflects people, a place, and a time as well as the rapport between humans and Mother Nature. Reclaiming the dishes of the past and translating them for today's palettes is one of his greatest pleasures.
