With two decades under its belt, it’s clear that Al Tiramisu is no flash in the pan. The unassuming restaurant is classic Italian down to the paintings of the Old Country and shelves lined with homemade limoncello. And, for the crowd of diplomats and intellectuals who flock here, these anything-but-trendy environs are precisely the draw. Though the food is rustic at its core, presentation is nothing if not elegant; and Chef Luigi Diotaiuti's dedication to ingredients has been recognized by DC Slow Food. Menu highlights include toothsome pappardelle tossed with sliced portobello mushrooms in a deliciously savory sauce, as well as grilled fish, lamb chops and roast chicken. Whatever you choose, be sure to save room for the namesake-and just right-tiramisu.
