It's one of the most popular desserts served in many Italian restaurants. It means "pick–me–up" ( or "make me happy" if translated provocatively). There are a few different versions about its origins:

  • some people say the history of "tiramisù" dates back to the Renaissance, when Venetian women gave the desserts to their men because they believed it improved love-making;
  • others believe that Venetian courtesans used "tiramisù" to pick–themselves–up during the night.
