Best tiramisu in LA from a restaurant (no chains)?
This is a tough one! I am a very tough critic of tiramisu, even when I am in Italy I have had some that aren't up to snuff IMHO. I believe that tiramisu needs to taste of coffee, mascarpone, liquor (marsala or rum), and a hint of cocoa. The biggest problem with tiramisu is one or more of those flavors missing, or a dry cake-y texture.
So far the best I've had is at La Botte, it was quite good but not perfect. (I would prefer a heavier hand with the liquor.)
Angelini Osteria has a delicious "cup of mascarpone" dessert that is tiramisu-like without actually being tiramisu. They sometimes offer actual tiramisu as a dessert special, but it's not been available when I was there, would be very anxious to try theirs as I find them to be authentic and overall fabulous.
Worst would go to Ugo in Culver City. I had to send it back.
I would love to find a great tiramisu in town if anyone knows!

I actually really love the Whilte Chocolate Tiramisu at Madeo's on beverly near robertson.
Has anyone ever tried it?
But it's hella expensive at about 12 bucks a pop.

Pizzeria Ortica in Costa Mesa has a really good one, but their food has gone downhill, especially the pizzas. Last time I went for lunch about a month ago, the crust was all burnt and the middle of it was mushy. But the tiramisu was excellent!
Sorry, I didn't notice until now that you specifically asked for LA.
