THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Il Tiramisu Restaurant Review

: Ivo Kastelan, who worked at Valentino, and his son, Peter, take good care of both regulars and newcomers at this Valley favorite that offers a more sophisticated feel than most of the trattorias lining Ventura Boulevard. Two candlelit dining rooms flank a central bar, and the tables, dressed in white linen, are generously spaced. The varied menu features crunchy calamari fritti; baked salmon with honey and citrus; crisp-crusted pizzas; osso buco; and cappallacci (thin pasta crêpes) stuffed with ricotta and spinach. All are moderately priced. Kastelan also makes homemade pastas and prides himself on the many daily fresh fish specials. While the trattoria offers a unique version of the ubiquitous Italian dessert for which it's named, you should also try its fine rendition of panna cotta. The wine list is short but select with Italian and Californian choices.

Il Tiramisu - highly recommended!
by corkyandwhiteshadow on Mon Sep 05, 2011 7:52 am
My family and I have been dining at Il Tiramisu since 1989. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, Easter, Christmas, and New Year's Eve holidays with the delicious cuisine and excellent service provided by the owners, chefs, and staff of this little jewel of a neighborhood place. Warm, European ambiance - perfect, too, for those weekday afterwork evenings when you just don't want to cook!
