Tiramisu Trattoria is located in the heart of the La Mesa Village and has been serving the best Italian dishes to San Diego for nearly 20 years. We welcome you, your families and friends to visit our family and join us for the most delightful Italian eatery San Diego has to offer.
Tiramisu Trattoria was introduced to La Mesa, California in 2004 by owner David Chiodo. After owning and managing a very successful restaurant in Downtown San Diego, David felt like something was missing. The authenticity of exquisite flavors that was limited to an area that was saturated by financial hungry competitors. Eliminating the potential to share his passion for authentic Italian eats with more people outside of the metropolitan district. This included people from other communities, families and love birds seeking quiet romantic locations without having to be in a fast-paced environment surrounded by increasing liquor sales. After making a very difficult decision, David left the restaurant and opened the greatest Italian gem in San Diego, Tiramisu. Beautifully hand-crafted dishes, carefully selected Italian imported wines and service that blends old school with modern demands. We invite you and your loved ones to visit us for your next meal at Tiramisu Trattoria.
