Tiramisu reviews for restaurants in Chicago from the great Heavenly Tiramisu site visitors.

  1. 10: Bertolini’s of Las Vegas, Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace, 3500 Las Vegas Blvd. South (the Strip), Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 735-4663. (I stumbled on their Tiramisu by accident and have not found an equal. If not a 10, it certainly is a 9.99.) — Charles Murphy
  2. 8: Bertolini’s of Las Vegas. (Not bad. It was very smooth, but a little heavy, which cost it a full point. It does boast good flavor and presentation. And if you don’t mind a little smoke and can eat it “outside” inside the forum area, it is a great experience.) — Miyamoto
  3. 10: Circo, at the Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 693-8150, fax (702) 693-8500. (Surprise! the Tiramisu is in the form of a small drum, with two white chocolate drumsticks. The drum surface is in a clear caramel circle, the “custard” is the body of the drum, the top and bottom of which are thin sheets of pastry soaked in expresso. The sides of the drum are decorated with small chocolate triangles and sticks. It was as beautiful to eat as it was to see!) — Anthony Buetti
  4. 5: Circo, at the Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 693-8150, fax (702) 693-8500. (To each his own. I was very disappointed in the Circo Tiramisu. I usually cast aside the decorations and fruits and sauces, and judge a Tiramisu on its taste and “heavenly” attributes that delight the mouth. Sadly, Circo’s is bland, and they use cake instead of ladyfingers.) — Miyamoto
  5. 10: La Strada, somewhere off the Las Vegas Strip in a shopping center. (Best I’ve ever had, and from the looks of my newest size wardrobe, I’ve had a lot!) — Erin
  6. 10: LeNotre, Paris Las Vegas Casino, 3655 Las Vegas Blvd South (“The Strip”), Las Vegas 89109. (Exceptional and I don’t eat dessert! Enjoy with a bitter espresso or frothy cappuccino. Really popular so they are often out. They have other good stuff so don’t despair.) – Russell
  7. 10: Panini, 4811 S. Rainbow Blvd., Las Vegas 89103. (Completely awesome! I have never, ever, ever had Tiramisu this good! It was served on a bed of chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream on the side, and if the scale went up to 20, it would be a 20! Chef Miguel Roman is absolutely the dearest man!) — Jennifer Ehrich
  8. 10: Pasta Mia, Flamingo Road. (Un-freakin-believably great. They are renown in Las Vega for it, often times catering it to corporate parties.) – Andrew
  9. 9: Pasta Mia. — Richmeister
  10. 10: Primavera, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas Strip. (I have just returned from where I found the best Tiramisu ever. The Primavera serves the lightest, most flavorful dessert you can imagine. Every ingredient was in perfect proportion. The lady fingers were still light and flaky. The presentation was on a dinner plate with individual medallions of cream sauce and chocolate with 2 sticks of cinnamon. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT. It receives a 10+ from me.) — Gary Shull
  11. 10: Romano’s Macaroni Grill, North Rainbow Blvd., North Las Vegas 89103. (My experience was much like yours. I am 100% Italian but never had Tiramisu until about 3 months ago. I am totally in love with it and I am obsessed. I was so happy when I saw your site because I have been looking for a recipe ever since I have tasted it!) — Kim Brown
  12. 9: Bucca di Beppo, at Lake Mead, Las Vegas 89145. (This Tiramisu is served in family proportions, so be ready to share. It is truly delightful.) — Josephine
  13. 9: The Plank, Treasure Island Hotel, Las Vegas Strip. (A little different, this Tiramisu was served in a wine goblet. They used a lot of rum, which created a not-unpleasant “bite” on the tongue. It may not always be available, for this was a special dessert that night.) — Miyamoto
  14. 10: The Plank, Treasure Island Hotel, Las Vegas Strip. (I had this luscious dessert in January 1996 in Las Vegas. This was my first experience trying Tiramisu and it was wonderful! If one can get Tiramisu better than what we had, I’d certainly like to try it..) — Sharon Travis
  15. 9: The Sacred Sea, Luxor Hotel, Las Vegas Strip. (An excellent, smooth, light Tiramisu that topped off a rather expensive but scrumptious seafood meal.) — Miyamoto, 8/94.
  16. 9, Tre Visi, in the MGM Grand Hotel, 3799 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 891-7220. (This one is as close as you can get to perfection without actually reaching it. It was wonderfully light and incredibly delicious, with fresh strawberry sauce and blackberries as garnish. So why not a 10? I just thought that the Tiramisu layer was not as ample as it should have been. I know, I know, this is nit-picking. But, isn’t perfection supposed to be … perfection?) — Miyamoto
  17. 9: Village Eateries, in the New York New York Hotel & Casino, 37909 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 891-7220. (I found this place on the main casino level in New York New York. It is designed to look like a small cafe in Manhattan. The Tiramisu was served in a dark chocolate bowl and was heavenly – a definite highlight of my trip.) – Lori Justman
  18. 9: Zeferrino, at The Venetian, 3377 Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), Las Vegas, NV 89109, phone (702) 414-3500, fax (702) 414-3505. (A most wonderful Tiramisu, but be prepared to eat about $75 worth of food to get to the dessert. Very, very smooth texture, and very close to perfection. A little more of the mascarpone and it would have reached that lofty height!) – Miyamoto
  19. 8: Buzio’s, Rio Suites. (Unusual presentation. It was in a chocolate dish. A little strong on the coffee flavor, but delicious otherwise. But it was smooth and very, very rich. You have to save room for this one.) — Kyle Strong
  20. 8: Fellini’s Ristorante Italiano, Stratosphere Casino Hotel & Tower, 2000 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (the “Strip”) Las Vegas 98104, phone (702) 380-7711. (Not bad. A little on the sweet side, cake instead of ladyfingers, and not enough mascarpone, but very enjoyable indeed. Strong espresso flavor and liquor “bite.”) – Miyamoto
  21. 8, The Flamingo Room, in the Flamingo Hilton, 3555 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 733-3111. (Very nice, smooth, great flavor, nice proportions.) — Miyamoto
  22. 8: Olive Garden, Sunset Road, Las Vegas 89014. (Very, very good! Years ago I tasted tiramisu in an Italian restaurant in NYC – Balducci’s, I believe it was, which was just a little bit better, but this one was very good. I give it an 8 only because it comes pre-made and frozen, but hey, that’s what controls the quality chain-wide, right? The taste and texture is heavenly! I’d make it a 9 if it were made daily on location. I am reserving a 10 rating for something exquisite, which I haven’t experienced yet.) – Marshall Brown
  23. 8: Piero’s Trattoria, 325 Hughes Center Drive, Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 892-9955. (They used cake instead of ladyfingers, the mascarpone was a bit too creamy and sweet instead of light. But all in all, a very tasty offering.) – Miyamoto
  24. 8, Ristorante Riva, in the Mirage Hotel, 3400 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 791-7111. (Excellent taste. Very smooth and thick mascarpone mixture, yet not at all dense like cheesecake. Not your classic, but a beautiful presentation in a chocolate “bird’s nest” cradle. Topped with raspberries and sitting on a cream and raspberry sauce, all of which I ignored. Served with two extra toasted ladyfingers, which actually tasted good by themselves … okay, okay, I put some of the raspberry sauce on those ladyfingers.) — Miyamoto, 8/97.
  25. 8: Tuscany Gardens, Tuscany Suites & Casino, 255 E Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 893-8933. (Wonderful flavor, light as a cloud on a bright summer day. But they used a thin layer of cake instead of ladyfingers, and they didn’t moisten the cake with liquor.) – Miyamoto
  26. 7: Boison’s, across the street from the Hard Rock Casino. (Tasty, but a very heavy styling of what could be a superb dessert experience, more for the cheesecake lover than the true “mascarponephile.”) — Cecil Reynolds
  27. 7: California Pizza Kitchen, The Mirage Hotel & Casino, 3400 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), Las Vegas 89109, phone (702 ) 791-7111. (Best Tiramisu I’ve had in a long time. The topping sauce is heavenly.) – Mary Phillman
  28. 7: Il Fornaio, restaurant and bakery, 3790 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas 89109, in the New York New York Hotel and Casino, northeast corner of Tropicana Blvd. and Las Vegas Blvd. South (the Strip), phone (702) 650-6500. (Good taste, but they used a zabaglione that was not very smooth and had a sort of “texture” that’s a little irritating, and cost it a full point.) Miyamoto
  29. 7: Il Fornaio. (Their food was wonderful! But as for the Tiramisu, you’d have to acquire a taste for the extremely strong espresso. Otherwise, tasty.) — Stacey DeWyke
  30. 7: Mimmo Ferraro’s, 5900 W. Flamingo Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89103, phone (702) 871-2721, email (Average dessert. Two think layers of very dense, but creamy, mascarpone. I wish they had beaten the eggs more to make it fluffy, and for some reason, the flavor was very, very mind – to the point of almost being non-existent. However, I did love the calamari fritti (fried squid) appetizer with its tasty marinara dip; and their house specialty – osso buco – was “molto buono”!) – Miyamoto
  31. 7: Olive Garden, 1361 S. Decatur Blvd., Las Vegas 89102, phone (702) 258-3453. (Nice taste to it, a little skimpy on the mascarpone, however. Equal to a nice, average Tiramisu.) – Miyamoto
  32. 7: Olives, at Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Blvd. South (“The Strip”), Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 693-8181, fax (702) 693-8511. A tasty dessert – “Banana Tiramisu” – that unfortunately was too banana for me. When tasted without the bottom roasted banana layer, the dessert was fine. I guess I like mine a little more pure in flavor.) – Miyamoto
  33. 7: Panazzi, Harrah’s Las Vegas, 3475 Las Vegas Blvd South (“The Strip”), Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 693-6019. (Not so bad, but not great either. A bit on the very sweet side, and there was not a hint of liquor. I had it at the oyster bar adjacent to the main dining area.) – Miyamoto
  34. 7: Second Street Grill, in the Fremont Hotel and Casino, downtown. (Served with a drizzle of raspberry coulis that didn’t overpower the dessert. Although by no means a refreshing dessert, even after a full plate of crab legs, I liked it enough to give it a 7. With a generous rating like that, you’d think they would have refrained from taking all my money on the blackjack table.) Melissa Chang
  35. 6: Caffe Ferraro, Desert Passage, Aladdin Resort & Casino, 3663 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), Las Vegas 89109. (This is the deli version of their fine dining restaurant at 5900 W. Flamingo Rd. The fact that it was served pre-made in a plastic cup therefore is forgivable. Nice texture, very creamy, a little too flavorful, however – rather sweet. And the substitute cake at the bottom was absolutely soaked, almost like a mush.) – Miyamoto
  36.  6: Eclair Pastries, in the Fashion Show Mall on the Strip (South Las Vegas Blvd.), left side of the food court entrance, street level. (Pretty tasty, with a strong flavor, good lightness, leaves a “rich” feeling in the mouth.6/01 Update: The entire food court has been vacated, to be replaced in 2003, along the Strip facade of the shopping center.) — Miyamoto
  37. 6: Romano’s Macaroni Grill, 2400 West Sahara, Las Vegas 89103, west of the strip, phone (702) 248-9500. (UPDATE: They’ve improved it a little, did away with goblet. It’s tastier but still could be lighter. ORIGINAL COMMENTS: Served in a goblet, not layered like the one I had at Macaroni Grill in Scottsdale, AZ. The ladyfingers were in chunks; the mascarpone mixture was utterly bland. The only sweetness discernable was from the ladyfingers. Far below any other Macaroni Grill experience I’ve had in the past). Miyamoto
  38. 6: Via Veneto, in the Suncoast Hotel & Casino (Summerllin), 9090 Alta Drive, Las Vegas 89145, phone (702) 636-7111 or (877) 636-7111, fax (702) 636-7297, (They serve it layered in a parfait glass so it’s not your classic Tiramisu, although it’s a delicious dessert in and of itself. Dark chocolate cake is substituted for ladyfingers, the mascarpone is sparse, and they don’t use liquor.) – Miyamoto
  39. 6: Vito’s, in The Orleans Hotel & Casino, 4500 West Tropicana Ave., Las Vegas 89103, west of the strip, phone (702) 365-7111, fax (702) 365-7500. (The mascarpone was too skimpy, and quite dense, not light and fluffy as I always hope it would be. The flavor wasn’t very refreshing, and the chuncks of dark and white chocolate gave too strong a flavor to the dessert. Definitely room for improvement). Miyamoto
  40. 5: Aromi d’Italia, in The Shops at Desert Passage at the Aladdin, 3663 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (the “Strip”) Las Vegas 98104, phone (702) 696-0181. (Very creamy, in fact, suspiciously so. I wonder if they didn’t just add some flavoring to whipped cream. It was served in one of those clear plastic food containers like the kind that fast-food hamburgers or small prepared salads are served in, and it was pretty runny. Average flavor.) – Miyamoto
  41. 5: Le Village Buffet Paris Las Vegas Casino, 3655 Las Vegas Blvd South (“The Strip”), Las Vegas 89109. (The mascarpone was pretty dense, and although the flavor was nice, it wasn’t top-notch. Too bad, because the rest of the buffet was excellent [great creme brulee, actually].) — Miyamoto
  42. 5: Olive Garden, 1545 Flamingo Road, Las Vegas 89119, 2-1/2 miles east of “The Strip,” phone (702) 735-0082, fax (702) 735-6952. (Like all other Olive Gardens I’ve been to, they were skimpy on the mascarpone – in fact even more so at this location; it was entirely too sweet for my palate. It was worse than the ones I’ve had at Romano’s Macaroni Grill – definitely overrated.) – Miyamoto
  43. 5: Sazio, in the Orleans Hotel & Casino, 4500 W. Tropicana Ave., Las Vegas 89103, phone (702) 948-9500, fax (702) 948-9501, website (Too heavy, they used the mascarpone mix as a frosting. It was too sweet, and wasn’t exactly satisfying — in fact, it wasn’t anywhere NEAR satisfying. They drizzled chocolate syrup all over it; the dessert looked huge and appetizing, but here’s a case where more isn’t necessarily better. Otherwise, the food was good.) – Miyamoto
  44. 5: Café Gelato, at the Bellagio, 3600 S. Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas 89109, phone (702) 693-7111. (It looks pretty good in the goblet; unfortunately, that’s where the pleasurable experience stops. The mascarpone portion is almost entirely tasteless, and it isn’t until you get to the lower one-third of the dessert that there is any flavor at all. They also serve this version in the room-service menu. I would pass it up, if I were you.) – Miyamoto
  45. 5, La Piazza Food Court Bake Shop, in Caesar’s Palace, 3470 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 731-7846. (The dessert was delicious, however, it was NOT classic Tiramisu. It was more like a light chocolate cake — very light, in fact. Just a hint of espresso flavor, but couldn’t taste any liquor, so it may have been missing. Dusted liberally with unsweetened cocoa.) — Miyamoto
  46. 4: Battista’s Hole in the Wall, 4041 Audie at Flamingo, Las Vegas 89109-9195, phone (702) 732-1424, fax (702) 732-7091. (Not so good, very dense mascarpone that’s grainy, no flavor, not even subtly so, thin cake instead of ladyfingers, no liquor flavor at all. Therefore, let’s talk ambiance and food. Interesting decor, with wine bottles of all shapes and sizes along the wall ledges, big menues on the wall — no printed ones — lots of fading pictures of famous people. The food is very good, plenty of good ol’ Italian flavor, and a little old man comes around playing accordian music for the diners. Complete meals are served, no ala carte. Eat the dinner, skip the Tiramisu dessert as it costs extra and isn’t worth it at half the price.) — Miyamoto
  47. 4, Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House, in the MGM Grand Hotel, 3799 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 891-7220. (Made traditionally with mascarpone cheese. Good presentation, although it looks like a pie slice [nothing wrong with that]. It started out in my mouth as a 5 to 5.5. However, it’s rather dry with too much cocoa powder. And whoa! What’s with all that liquor? This was overwhelming and less than heavenly in my mouth. By the end of the dessert, I had to downgrade it to a 4.) — Melissa Chang
  48. 4: Merchants Harbor Coffee House, in The Shops at Desert Passage at the Aladdin, 3663 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (the “Strip”) Las Vegas 98104, phone (702) 731-1003. (Very dense, taste was fairly acceptable, but nothing about it was special. Even the ladyfingers were crunchy — not because they were toasted, but because they were stale.) – Miyamoto
  49. 4: Palatium Buffet, Caesar’s Palace, 3500 Las Vegas Blvd. South (the Strip), Las Vegas 89109. (Typical buffet concoction, mass produced and that’s pretty obvious.) — Miyamoto
  50. 4: Spago, in Caesar’s Palace Forum Shops, 3500 Las Vegas Blvd. South (the Strip), Las Vegas 89109. (Whatever it was, it just wasn’t Tiramisu. The real downer of it was that it came at the end of a perfectly wonderful dinner. There was little of any coffee flavor to it and, rather than being a layered thing, was pretty much homogenous throughout. Again, I must emphasize, apart from this, the meal was excellent.) – Jerry Parshall
  51. 3: Alta Villa, in The Flamingo Hilton, 3555 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 733-3111, Las Vegas 89109. (Actually, the same Tiramisu that I got at Lindy’s, but it gets an extra point because there [1] was no refrigerator taste, and [2] they had a small dollop of whipped cream and a delish ripe strawberry on the side. Normally, I ignore the added accoutrements, but in this case, it was the best thing the Tiramisu had going for it. All this followed a meal of the worst osso bucco I ever had in my entire life.) — Miyamoto
  52. 3: Cafe St. Lucia, in The Venetian, 3355 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 414-1000. (Exceptionally not so good.) — Miyamoto
  53. 3: Plaza Food Court, in the Fashion Show Mall on the Strip (South Las Vegas Blvd.), phone (702) 733-1020. (It’s a Tiramisu cake, with the “mascarpone” more like frosting. Not so good.) — Miyamoto
  54. 2: Fry’s Electronics Cafe, 6845 S. Las Vegas Blvd., about 2 miles north of the end of “The Strip,” Las Vegas 89119, phone (702) 932-1400, fax (702) 932-1418. (Okay, okay … should have known better, but I saw it there so had to try it. This was the first chewy Tiramisu I’ve ever had. The only reason it got points was because it actually tasted good. But Tiramisu it’s not.) — Miyamoto
  55. 2: Lindy’s Coffee Shop, in The Flamingo Hilton, 3555 S. Las Vegas Blvd. (“The Strip”), phone (702) 733-3111, Las Vegas 89109. (I could taste the refrigerator smell. It was like a cake, with only a hint [a bare hint] of mascarpone cheese flavor, covered with heaps of shaved chocolate [not dusted — piled on]. They used a cake layer with what appeared to be “speed bumps” to simulate lady fingers. I could only stand a couple of bites. My personal opinion is that if they are going to do something like this, they should take Tiramisu off the menu.) — Miyamoto
