In Italy – the home of Tiramisu – a hidden gem awaits tucked away on the winding cobblestone streets of Rome’s Rione VI Parione district.
It is said that the aphrodisiac treat was devised by a cunning “maitresse” of a house of pleasure in 1800s Treviso to reinvigorate the customers.
Known as “Tiremesù” in the Treviso dialect, the coffee-based dessert was Italianized into “Tiramisù” in the latter half of the 20th century.
Now, nestled amongst the charming osterias and trattorias near picturesque Piazza Navona, Two Sizes offers patrons an unforgettable taste of Italy’s most cherished dessert, marrying the creamy, seductive essence of Tiramisu with an array of innovative flavors.
A dessert haven crammed into a cozy hole-in-the-wall, Two Sizes has more than earned its reputation as a must-visit destination for sweet-toothed visitors.
The cornerstones of the menu here are the five delectable flavors: the classic Tiramisu, with its rich and velvety mascarpone cream layered between coffee-soaked ladyfingers, and four variations – pistachio, strawberry, caramel, and chocolate-hazelnut.
Each brings a fusion of tradition and innovation, capturing the essence of Italy while transporting the taste buds to new heights.
The classic Tiramisu at Two Sizes boasts a perfect balance of sweetness and depth, enveloping the delicate ladyfingers, which have been soaked just enough to absorb the bold essence of the espresso without becoming overly soggy.
Meanwhile, for those seeking a twist on the classic, the pistachio Tiramisu offers a balance between the familiar and the unexpected.
The crispy shells, filled with a delicate and creamy ricotta filling, provide a delightful contrast in textures, making it the perfect companion to a cup of espresso.
Two Sizes may be tucked away in Rome’s Rione VI Parione district – and the lack of tables means you’ll need to take away your cup – but its creative Tiramisu offerings have earned it a well-deserved place on the city’s culinary map.
