1998 Best Tiramisu

Caffe Vittoria

After slogging through mounds of whipped-cream-and-pound-cake puddin’ packs, we were seduced by Caffe Vittoria’s luscious and authentic blend. Not a trace of whipped cream here, folks. Just the deep flavor of ladyfingers moistened (not soaked) with espresso and decadent mousselike mascarpone layers. Add a restrained dusting of cocoa and mix with the Caffe’s hefty dose of North End charm.
