“When I’m asked where to go for Italian, Al Tiramisu in DuPont Circle is usually on the tip of my tongue!” – Tom Sietsema, The Washington Post
“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. Al Tiramisu was also named one of "The Best Italian Restaurants in DC" by the Michelin Guide, is the proud recipient of Gambero Rosso's "Top Italian Restaurants 2018", and has earned Slow Food DC’s Snail of Approval award. Al Tiramisu is owned and operated by Award-Winning Chef/Restaurateur, Certified Sommelier, Television Personality, and Culinary Ambassador of Basilicata, Italy, Luigi Diotaiuti.
