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.

decarli Ratings and Reviews
We had friends from out of town visiting and chose Decarli because we all love Italian food. My husband and I have been eating at this restaurant ever since its opening 9 years ago. The quality of the food has never gone down in those years, it's been getting better. We noticed high level of noise at the restaurant which made it hard to talk.
Food was fabulous a bit on the expensive side but good to find a nice restaurant in the Beaverton area and the west side of Portland. Dinning area was noisy so it made it hard to hear conversations at times. Our waitress was friendly and upbeat.
The staff was 'wonderful'---unfortunately, the menu item(s) each of us have ordered many times before was almost too tough to chew and dry. (Pork Shoulder) When we left the restaurant, we met at our house afterwards...each one of us had the same identical complaint. Our bill was around $350.00.....We are regulars both personal and professional....very disappointment this time.
Our server, who had a great deal if knowledge about the wines and pairings, was wonderful and even spent a good deal of time working with my mother-in-law to find the wine she had wanted. (There was some confusion in the varietal/name.) The wine was wonderful and we highly recommend the mussles and polenta fries. We all loved our pastas and dessert was decadent. All in all, we can't wait to go back.
I picked DeCarli off of an Internet search and was extremely surprised by how great the choice was. It was my wife's birthday.
She decided that she just wanted to go out for dinner, instead of a celebration or receiving presents. We were all delighted by the perfectly prepared food, attentive service, unique drinks, and atmosphere at Decarlis. Best restaurant choice I've made in years. We will be back with friends.
This was a birthday surprise dinner for my wife!! She loved Italian and different dinning. Decarli's was hands down the best food to date I've eaten. The beef short ribs were absolutely amazing I seriously have no words to describe them. My wife had the halibut on a bed of pureed cauliflower. It was amazing as well. The atmosphere was great, our server was on the ball and at least 3 times in the 35 min we were there checked in on us and made sure all was great. Oooo and our food was out very very quickly, and it was a full house to boot. All in all I would recommend decarli's to all my friends and family. Great place.
Never disappointed in decarli's! We've hosted private events here, anniversary dinners, happy hours with friends. It's a shining star in the downtown Beaverton area, which is getting a nice little reboot since this restaurant moved in. Had pasta and a pork shoulder, a wonderful dessert and an amazing bottle of wine. Menu changes for the seasons but some staples stay put. Staff is wonderful, service is always on point. Can't recommend highly enough.
Best Ceasar salad! Everything was good. We did decide to share dessert but it wasn't necessary, as portion was small. However, all other portion sizes were substantial. Wonderful short ribs! A bit noisy, but that calmed down as the evening wore on. We'd definitely go back (again).
Wait staff was exceptional he was super helpful with menu. The steak was better than el Goucho & that says a lot. A little on the fancy side for my husband bottled root beer knocked his socks off. I loved it. Definitely coming back.
I ate here twice last week while travelling on business, once by myself and then back with coworkers. VERY nice folks and good food, cocktails and wine. The only issue I had was parking. It is street parking only and not very plentiful.
My husband and I went on a date that was much needed. The ambiance and the food was incredible. We dined here a couple of years ago and it was the same good experience we had then. I recommend this restaurant for a night out with a date or a good friend. It's cozy and very inviting.
