decarli restaurant is where rustic meets modern. Chef/owner, Paul DeCarli, pulls from his Swiss-Italian roots to create a menu that reflects his heritage as well as combine local Northwest ingredients. Polenta fries with gorgonzola butter, mussels in fennel-saffron cream sauce, and espresso-braised shortribs are just a few of the many "must-haves.” Soaring open beam ceilings with rustic brick walls add to the ambiance of this 1924 historic building.

Always a great experience at Decarli's. Had a business meeting and the service was attentive, the food great, and the wine list good. You can never go wrong with the short ribs. You don't need a knife to eat these short ribs. I would recommend this place for any meal and make sure you make a reservation.

I thought everything about the food was excellent - from presentation to taste etc.
Parking was difficult at 7:15 pm Saturday. For us (over 62) the noise level was tough. Our waitress might have had the same issue as she missed our drink order which was a long time coming and the service seemed slow...

Went to Decarli for a date with my husband. They have a great, seasonal menu that is always changing. Ordered the pizzetta, which was large enough for a meal in itself. Great crust. Also had the speck wrapped asparagus. We both ordered pasta dishes which were light, fresh and tasty. We will be back!

Overall the restuarant is very nice, and great to have in Beaverton. Most Friday's we have to drive across town to get a good meal so we are very happy to have this option close to home. Two things that I would suggest:
1. Improve the training of the wait staff so that they know a bit more about the food.
2. Always have a special or two, as the menu is not varied enough to come back frequently.
Keep up the good work, go a bit lighter on the sodium but overall nice meal/evening.

Celebration of husband's 3 years of being cancer free. Had a drink in the bar which always fun. Asked to be seated next to the wall and had a small table which we would have liked to have a larger one, but my husband did ask for one. Our meals were very good. Good service and always love coming to the restaurant and bar. Good job.

Several visits in past 2 months..food, atmosphere & service has been great. Continues to be a 'go to' for any occasion. Prices moderate, reservation strongly suggested no matter what day or time..worth every minute!

Great food. We ordered an appetizer of polenta fries, delicious and salty in a good way. Pork shoulder dish and a beef short rib and both were cooked to perfection, very flavorful. Reasonable portion sizes. We also had apricot upside down cake which ended up being the perfect dessert, not too rich or heavy. The beer and wine lists seemed fine, plenty of choices to complement your meal.
It was a little bit noisy but more in a hustle and bustle, vibrant, busy restaurant way and not so loud that we couldn't have a conversation. Probably quieter outside but we enjoy the romantically dimly lit indoor space and the beautiful artwork on the walls. It was our anniversary, we appreciated it so much last year for the same occasion we decided on Decarli again this year and are so glad we did.

We've been visiting decarli for several years. The food and service are always top-notch. The one thing that sometimes causes us to choose another restaurant for a meal with friends is the noise level. On a recent Saturday night the dining room was so loud that we had to raise our voices considerably to have a conversation with our friends. There were four of us, and we were at a smaller table in the front window alcove, but still had trouble hearing one another. Great food, outstanding service, but too noisy for conversation!

Great food and great service continue to characterize this wonderful neighborhood gem. The menu changes frequently and the pasta is excellent. Be sure to check out their list of Italian wines and don't be embarrassed to ask for a recommendation.

We had sat in the bar before for a light appetizer and drink in the past but the restaurant menu and dinner service is unbelievable. We had the steak tartare which was rich and delicate. The roasted beet salad complemented and cleansed the palate for the entree round. Taglietelle pasta dish was bursting with flavor and richness and complimented the Al Dente noodles exquisitely.
We love Decarli's for it's big style in the 'burbs. We went for my husband's bday. We got there early and sat at the bar for about 25 minutes. We informed the hostess, and she had our table ready on time. She actually had to wait on us while we waited for our son to arrive. The bartender was busy but very engaging and helped me choose a vodka that I was not allergic to. They gave us a table in the corner by the front window and that was very nice. The waiter was good, and the other wait staff was very attentive.
I had asked for help with selecting foods that I was not allergic to, and the waiter did not seem informed of that fact. Or, if he was informed, he didn't mention it when I told him about my allergies. Other restaurants have practically bent over backwards when I have mentioned this ahead of dining. That was the only downfall to our experience. I did my best to choose something off the menu that wasn't likely to have the allergens I must avoid and I seemed to be OK. We generally love the food here.
Great food, great service and a great ad ...
Great food, great service and a great addition to the local Beaverton area. The decor is pretty neat but it can get quite loud. The night we dined was very busy and it was almost impossible to hold conversation without raising your voice pretty hight. Don't let the noise keep you away, this is piece of Portland in our own back yard with amazing food and prices.
