Our family has been customers for years. When we first moved to the neighborhood our oldest daughter was four months, this fall she leaves for college! Our favorite spot is sitting in the cafe, best views of action on Third Ave & nothing better than outdoor dining on a warm spring-like day! The food and service have been consistently good, the portions are quite large, we usually end up with a take out container, which makes excellent kid's packed lunches for next day at school. Just tried the Pizza Metro, a long rectangle delicious pizza. My husband had the special shrimp & scallop appetizer, he cleaned the plate. My Chilean Sea Bass entree with barolo sauce & spinach risotto was cooked to perfection. It was the best I've ever had! We're having our daughter's graduation celebration there b/c we've had so many wonderful family meals and memories there! Also, Tiramisu is great place to take mother in law & out of town relatives ; )We'll be back soon.

We happened upon Tiramisu after spending the day at the MoMA. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. My husband had the daily seafood special and I had the white fish with vegetables. I loved the roasted flavor of the meal.Dessert was perfect, a fall apple type pie with ice cream.The portions were fine and the seating outside was cozy. We're from out of the area(western state) and I was concerned about getting attitude from the staff. The interaction was pleasant. Many large family parties seemed to dine there along with a few couples and singles. We did not have cocktails just mineral water and that was better than NYC tap water. I would like to try their pizza for lunch next time.

We went by the reviews on this web site and found Tiramisu dissapointing. I have NEVER seen smaller portions, and overpaid for sangria($32.00 for a 1/2 pitcher of mostly ice) anywhere I have ever eaten. The food was good, although my pasta was way overdone. A child could eat the dinner portion and still be hungry. I do want to commend the very attentive waiters and servers- they were on top of things. I would not go back.

We just finished lunch at Tiramisu! Couldn't wait to get back for the ricotta spinach gnocchi. My husband had the steak special - it was so aromatic & flavorful. We arrived home from a 2 week trip to London. All I could think of on the plane was the great food & scrumptious tiramisu. We are neighborhood regulars for 10+ years. Never fails to please our whole family!

On 1/15/11, we ordered an appetizer and two pizzas . The waiter questioned us as to when we wanted the pizzas in a most hostile way. He was told to serve them after we ate the appetizer(DUH) Pizzas arrived lukewarm. We left the tip on the table(15%) instead of putting it with the bill. This burly crude man came running over and said nastily" there must be some mistake" He then picked up his tip off the table without a thank you. It's not worth your time or money to have lukewarm food and lousy service

We are regulars and LOVE this restaurant. their tomato sauce is reminiscent of italy's and the pasta is always cooked perfectly. but you can't go there without trying their pizza! YUM!

Having a wood burning pizza oven that has been working for 23 years gives Tiramisu the edge when it comes to Pizza and Focaccia. Try the monkfish or salmon. The superb preparation of these entrees is complimented by the freshness and exquisite flavor of the antipasto dishes. Dessert is amazing. The signature dessert for which the restaurant is named is prepared with the finest mascarpone and slightest hint of coffee liqueur. The walls are festooned with sculptural samplings of Michelanglo's David. The atmosphere is subdued but lively as the relatively small venue packs in youthful diners . A nice feed for about $75 per person.
