Love. It was great
Decarli's is one of our favorite restaurants but the experience can be spotty and Saturday was no exception. My husband and I each ordered the hanger steak dinner while splitting the duck mousse appetizer and a salad. The mousse was outstanding and delightfully smooth, the salad fresh and well dressed. The main course was a major disappointment. The flavors of the meal were outstanding BUT both the steak and asparagus were room temperature when they arrived and only the semolina gnocchi were hot. A large scoop of unmelted butter rested atop the tepid steak which was slightly underdone. Clearly this was a kitchen issue and the server, to his credit offered to do what he could to make it right but rewarming the entire plate would have resulted in an overcooked steak and we did not have time to wait for a complete recook. Thank goodness the excellent flavors were some compensation and the service was excellent. The kitchen would be greatly improved by developing consistency as this is not the first time the kitchen has been an impediment to what would otherwise have been an outstanding meal.
Adhered to my reservation time and gor right in. The service was very good. The food was excellent and the portions were perfect! We were not rushed and this was important as my party had not seen one another for quite some time. We had so much to discuss and were able to take our time.
Thank you DeCarli's staff!
The server’s recommendations we spot on. Appreciate the Italian wine selections and wine knowledge of staff.
Always enjoy Decarli. This dinner in particular was exceptional! Service was great from the time we stepped in the door until we left. Very reasonably priced for what you get. Food was great, service matched it!
I took my girlfriend here for a long overdue date night. It was fantastic. The ambience and decor is very nice. It was a bit loud, but after the crowd thinned a bit, it was no problem. The food and drinks were pricey but delicious and filling. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, we both loved it. We plan to return for our anniversary in a few months.
The food and service was great, as usual, however the noise level was too loud to enjoy a dinner conversation.
Tables for 4 are quite small. The food is worth the tight squeeze.
Phenomenal as always. The food was great (hooray for carpaccio being back on the menu!) and the service was professional without being pretentious. This is my go to restaurant in Beaverton and they never disappoint.
The food and service were fabulous ! The noise level was a little loud, especially for older members of group.
The restaurant was only about 40% full when we arrived on a Saturday evening but no one was at the host stand and we had to stand there uncomfortably for a few minutes. Once finally seated, the waiter was friendly and service was prompt. The salads and short ribs were good. The pasta, on the the hand, was at room temp and overcooked (probably because it was cooked before the ribs were ready so it sat in the kitchen past its prime). For a $16 pasta, the serving size was also rather small, more like an appetizer. It's always frustrating when you paid a lot for a pasta dish at a so called Italian restaurant for something that you knew you can do much better at home. For the price, I would not recommend it.
Had family in from Florida and wanted to take them out for dinner somewhere comfortable with amazing food - decarli fits the bill perfectly.
Finally tried Decarli and I'm so glad we did! So delicious. Felt like we were in downtown Portland and not Beaverton. Great atmosphere and all the food was wonderful. Will definitely be back.
Excellent gluten free chicken pasta meal. Outstanding service and our table was ready early. It’s always an excellent experience.
Quality meals, but once again, very slow service. There needs to be more servers during evening rush.
always enjoy eating a decari's, we need to do it more than just on special occassions.
The braised short ribs are to die for. Keep up the good work
I wish they said the menu changes daily online, we went there and were shocked, but stayed anyway, I ordered the ravioli, and the hey brought it out with 6 ravioli’s maybe they thought I needed to eat like a bird that night..oh and the waiter walked by 4 times and never asked how it was. Not recommended
Love this local restaurant, a favorite choice for the ambiance and amazing food!
As usual, excellent food and flavors. Great space, perfect for date night. Dinner took longer than usual to arrive but everything else was perfect. One of our favorites!
The food was delicious, the service was great and the dessert made the evening, we'll be back that's for sure.
Such salty food which was rather disappointing! I would be hesitate to return for any pasta at all. Service was fine - not overly inviting or rude by any stretch.
Very slow service, otherwise very good.
Only criticism is that it is very noisy - difficult for conversation on a busy night. Food was wonderful, though.
Outstanding service but our food was a little salty during this visit. Especially the pork chop.
Went to Decarli on a recommendation. It was OK... It was a very heavy and oily meal. I would give it a 3 out of 5.
Great service and food selections with excellent wine recommendation. The waiter was engaging and attentive the entire evening. Made for a perfect anniversary dinner.
Unfortunately it was a little disappointing. We book with clients and use your private dining room next door. The past three times haven’t been great. Food not fully cooked and or over cooked and tough.
You may want to pay attention to the customers comments during the meal.
We have enjoyed meals here several times. This is one of my first choices when looking for a non-chain restaurant that fits the sweet spot of upscale dining that isn't too pretentious nor expensive. The parking situation isn't good, so be prepared to park a few blocks away. My biggest complaint about the place is pretty common these days, which is that it is loud. My hearing isn't great and I struggle to hear the wait person speaking and have to lean in to enjoy the conversation at our table. We always enjoy the food and drink at Decarli!
Went there for my birthday. Everything was wonderful. The salted caramel cheesecake was a perfect ending.
I love this place so much! Great authentic Italian food. Usually we have a woman as our waitress who is very sweet and efficient. The last time a man waited on us and he was very slow, everything took forever. The delicious food makes up for his not so great service.
We had a great time here. The staff was friendly and inviting and the interior of the restaurant was very nice. The food was great!
This place is amazing! We’ve been here many times and never, ever disappointed. Great food, absolutely stellar service and a wonderful location!
We enjoyed the food and the drinks and the service. However the table was small for four people and the noise level made conversation impossible !!!
We have eaten at DeCarli many times. The past couple times it has not been up to their usual great experience. Our drinks were half-full when they brought them to our table. Pasta undercooked, no flavor, and very small portions. Salads were great. Service was excellent. Food just okay. Wondering if something has changed as the last time were there - about a month or so ago - we had the same experience, just not up to the usual great food we have come to expect for DeCarli.
Delicious dinner with perfectly executed service, great cocktails, and a lovely experience. My only complaint is that it's a little loud, but I'm old ... :) Highly recommend.
Excellent service and excellent food! We love this place. :)
It was such a treat to have the warmed olive hors d'ourves...delicious! We were disappointed that there was not more fish to choose from. We do not eat red meat. We did have an excellent chicken dinner. The garden salad had the perfect hint of salad dressing. Our waiter was outstanding. We had only eaten in the bar before...very good food there also. You do need a reservation for the restaurant..it is always packed. We will definitely be returning but next time we will bring friends.
Warm, inviting, and elegantly rustic. Scrumptious, flavorful food. Cozy, yet upscale.
Felt like the dining experience was worth the money and effort of going out! Not very many places can truly live up to that simple expectation, but Decarli's did.
My wife and I really love Decarli’s. It’s one of our favorite date night places. Great food and service!!!! We’ve been 4 times and it’s always great !!
