Beaverton, OR 97005
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.

Mussels were the best I've ever eaten! The beet salad and caramel cheese cake also delicious. Service was attentive w/o hovering. My only caution is it's a little noisy ( it was very busy) and not very private...Just tables in a big open room and no booths. Nevertheless, very positive experience.

As usual, terrific menu. Table service ( Bryan) was just ok, though. He seemed overly busy. Maybe there was a missing server or two that night? Very friendly guy, but was scarce to find. Bus staff was excellent, as was the hostess.

Grabbed a last minute table through open table for a birthday dinner with my wife. We were seated very quickly, it was a 5:15 seating so the restaurant was about 20% filled and bar was packed. By 6 the hall was packed.
We started with the Speck and shared a mixed greens salad. The Speck was great and dressing in the salad was delicious.
I had the New York Strip medium rare but it actually was a lot cooler on the rare side. I was okay with as the steak still had a lot of flavor. The potatoes were really good and the mushrooms were good.
Wife had the parpadelle pasta with truffle butter. Pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce was spot on and not too overpowering with truffle butter.
Ended with the bread pudding and that was amazeballz as well.
Service was very good and the waitress gave me a great wine pairing for the steak. The Hall Street Cooler was pretty good. Light drink

One of the best Italian restaurants in the Portland area. They have bypassed the usual Italian cliches to provide excellent, special and very flavorful pasta dishes, preceded by top notch appetizers. Desserts are excellent. Also a nice and affordable wine list.

The food is always fun - not always the best value (filet main dish plus salad is about 40 dollars)- but different and tasty. Noise levels can be high but the crowd on this last Friday night was pretty good in keeping their conversations down a little. We really like this restaurant and will be back many more times. Again, the food is good - service has been great and the setting is very nice. We recommend for groups of 6 or less.

Had a lovely meal at decarli! The restaurant made a point to help my husband and I celebrate Lunar New Year after missing our previous New Years eve reservation. I recommend the steak tartare - it's always a treat. And the lobster pasta is above and beyond! Everything is fresh, and service excellent.

Our whole experience was terrific! Food was fantastic and wine list amazing! Our waiter Mark was professional and friendly and upbeat! I had left my umbrella there and the next day, a very kind person working in the back let me retrieve it from under my table. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Their signature dish, the Beef Shortribs, is a must-have and we order it every time. The polenta fries with gorgonzola butter is a favorite appetizer of ours as well.
The menu is purposefully small and changes frequently to offer variety and seasonality. Order anything that looks good; we've been to Decarli several times and have never had anything that was less than fantastic!

Need to go if you haven't been! One of the best go to spots for fine dining and foodies on the Westside. Polenta Fries and Oysters are a must. Menu changes frequently, excellent for a date night, friends gathering or family night!

My wife and I enjoyed their New Year's Eve five course menu. Between us we had ten different dishes and I tried nine of them. All were excellent. The pork ragu, short ribs, and duck confit were exceptional. Their tiramisu was maybe the best I've ever had.
Cocktails were excellent.
Service was flawless. Courses were timed perfectly.
Food rivals Higgins. Desserts rival Urban Farmer. That's the highest praise I can muster.
Four stars for value because it's not an inexpensive venue, but it's better than just a fair price.

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent meal at DeCarli. The staff was welcoming and friendly, which was very comforting, as I had had a rather bad day. Being pampered and having people bring me good food was delightful! I had a pizzetti (not sure of the spelling) and the mixed green salad, both were excellent. My husband enjoyed his entree as well. We definitely will go back.

The cocktails are as amazing as the food! My wife loved the Spicy Mango Margarita.
We had the Tombo Tuna with celery root puree. That was cooked perfectly!
We also enjoyed the polenta fries and mussels as appetizers.

Quite a find for a Beaverton restaurant. Dining area has a warm comfortable feel, with brick walls, nice artwork and dark wood chairs a tables. Service was excellent. Our server was personable and attentive. The other waitstaff coordinated deliver of food and drinks very well. We liked the food. I had the short ribs and my wife had lasagna. We will be back again to try other items on the menu. The food is a bit spendy but worth it.
