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.
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!

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.
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!
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.
