ISO Really good Tiramisu made in house - Toronto
I have tried tiramisu at some of the Italian restaurants and it is very obvious that they are store bought, sometimes even storebought, frozen and then thawed (yuck!).
I am looking for an Italian restaurant that serves good food but where the tiramisu is made in house and also tastes really good.
Trio (Yonge/Lawrence) makes their own tiramisu and it's pretty darn good. But then again, there's not a like to NOT like about tiramisu in my book (ladyfingers, booze, mascarpone, chocolate), so I may not be a great judge. :) As long as it's light and creamy and slightly boozy, I'm happy.
I *believe* the place is called Banfi - it is a small Italian place in the Forest Hill Village.
Back in the day when our family friend owned it, we would eat there at least once a month. Though I still believe they use the same recipe, their Tiramisu was always the best in the city.
Have a go and let us know if it still is!
Terroni's on Yonge/St. Clair had nice and very traditional tiramisu which I sampled end of December before the changes. They recently closed that location. I have not been to the new location at Yonge/Price st.
Any chowhounder try a tiramisu there yet?
The Terroni on Queen west has a different pastry chef and has a more modern take and amazing tiramisu, more delicate and luscious. Don't let the line up turn you off, ask the host/hostess to see if you can sit at the bar, We were there on a Friday night and skipped a 30 minute wait instantly by ordering dinner and the bar and I like to watch the kitchen too.
Pizzeria Libretto has an amazing tiramisu (best I've had in Toronto). It's a tad unorthodox (I find it's a lot creamier than the classic iterations, and it's served in a mason jar), but the flavor is outstanding. Go on a Monday where you can have the black truffle and egg yolk pizza for lunch and then finish with the tiramisu!
