Surprising Flavors, Great Staff
Creative combinations of ingredients gave us a meal full of unique flavors. Our server, Mark, was very helpful with entree and wine suggestions.

We were out-town-visitors
We were out-town-visitors and ate here at a local friend's recommendation. It was absolutely divine! It is a great find. The dining area has an open, airy feel with some skylights to let in some natural light. We started with the steak tartare, and it was quickly gobbled up by everyone at the table. I had the short ribs, and my mouth still waters at the memory of it. I'd highly recommend this restaurant, and if we lived in the area, we woudl certianly make a return visit. In fact, we may swing by the next time we pay a visit to the Portland area.

We love this place. Don't get there often enough. Food and Service are consistently of the finest quality.

Great experience. The only
Great experience. The only drawback was the decibel level. The dining room is one big room with tables back to back. No booths or quit corners to duck into. This was my first time and it came as a little surprise.
The food was great and the service was excellent. the place was packed and we will be back! Short and to the point.

Our foursome loved every dish
Our foursome loved every dish we ordered. The ribs were a special hit. A surprise were the polenta fries with gorgonzola butter! Who knew they would be so delicious? We will return and recommend this charming restaurant.

Excellent Dining Experiance-
Great dinner even if my date gave up on me the next day when a bigger fish came along. Lol gals are so shallow.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place westside
This is a great spot on the westside. Love the food and ambience. Service is usually top notch, too. But, this time we got someone that wasn't on top of their game.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My date brought me a beautiful bouquet of exotic flowers wrapped in paper. I was worried about them being out of water for a couple of hours. You hostess kindly took my flowers, unwrapped the paper and put them in water for the time we were at the restaurant. Then when we were ready to leave, she dried them off and rewrapped them in the paper. Needless to say I was very impressed.

Always a good choice
Decarlis was described when it first opened as a standout in downtown Beaverton - but that wouldn't get noticed in the Pearl District. It is consistently good w amazingly prepared food and drinks. The service is top notch w many of the same people there for a few years now. Best of all - it is in the Burbs! You don't have to drive through traffic to get to Downtown Portland or the Eastside.
You can always count on a great experience....highly recommend

Great - Once Again
This was our 4th opportunity to dine at decarli and have never been disappointed. We love the pork chops offered on Friday evenings. I wish I could figure out how they can cook a 3 inch thick pork chop perfectly through the entire thickness. Forget it ... I'll just make reservations at decarli

Italy, hidden in the burbs!
I tried this place for the first time last month after finding it on Yelp. I was looking for the best romantic restaurants to take my girlfriend of 2 yrs. out for our anniversary. I was right away blown away by it's authentic Italian look on the inside. After we received our first course I was very pleased with the food, and once we got our main courses my gf and I were both stunned by the flavors that we had just indulged. I had tried the short ribs which were so tender that the meat just melted in my mouth. My gf had the NY Strip which was reasonably priced for the size that she got. The service was also great, and the server was very attentive to us which was awesome because they were very busy that day.
Overall, great place. Kudos.

A great spot! A wide variety
A great spot! A wide variety of options, and the polenta fries are amazing!
8/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
I have dined here twice and each time the food was excellent. Interesting, rich flavors and good overall presentation. I love the ambiance of the restaurant and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. This is now one of my favorite restaurants!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
A neighborhood Gem
We can always count on Decarli's to offer a new selection of dishes, every time we visit their dining room. We like the fact that we have a restaurant in the area that offers such fine cuisines and wines in such a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, that rivals it's counterparts in Northwest Portland,etc.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great experience
Decarli never disappoints us. We only get a chance to enjoy it a few times per year, but as usual the entire experience is a relaxing pleasure. Highly recommend this restaurant. Use Open Table to book it in advance.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I arrived expecting good Italian food and were rewarded by some of the absolutely most perfect Italian food EVER! For an appetizer we shared the Artichoke and Leek Cazuela. She had short ribs on ??? and I had wild boar ragu on gnocchi. Both were absolutely exceptional. Tamra, our waiter, was oustanding and guided us wisely with our selections including a great and only moderately priced Italian red. The S'mores were a real surprise and not quite like their namesake.and went well with our final sips of red wine (REALLY!) Maybe we need to move to Portland! Highly recommended!
8/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Outstanding food and excellent
Outstanding food and excellent service. It was packed on a Thursday so the overall noise level was a bit high and sometimes hard to carry on a conversation. Still, I'd highly recommend this gem!
8/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
For too many visits we'd left Hall Street Grill saying "let's never eat here again". Now, finally, we have another choice far west of Portland when we want a special, expensive meal. Our party of four received excellent service throughout the evening, and the meals were excellent. We enjoyed the gnocci, muscles, salmon, and beef tips. Our salads (beet and caesar) were also very good.
The main negative is the aucoustics in the place. For some reason the restaurant is extremely noisy. Just about everything any of us said had to be repeated when one of the many "what?"s was said in response. It made making meaningful conversation difficult.
A nit: while there is no dress code, at $75-150/person, please no backward ballcaps, no flipflops.

A happy wife is a happy life
My wife and I have been here a few times since we discovered it a couple of years ago and we have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit was to celebrate our first Anniversary, and wow did they deliver. The service and food were outstanding! It can be a bit spendy if you have an appetizer, salad, entree, desert and wine, but that is to be expected and it is well worth the price.
We started with a fresh Ahi Crudo and I've been having flashbacks of it ever since. I really hope this shows up on the menu again.
The heirloom tomato caprese, new york strip, and "smores" were expertly prepared and had us literally dancing in our seats in bliss. I seriously got a dopamine rush hours and days later just thinking about this meal.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Only game in town (Beaverton)
This is really the only good 'foodie' restaurant in Beaverton. Food is nice and the service is good - but the noise level is painfully high, even at 6pm (we went in early just to avoid the noise). Not a romantic place, but fun for larger groups.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
this restaurant is always
this restaurant is always at the top of our list. However, Friday night the service was a little slower than normal but the wait staff did apologize and explained the reason for the delay. they were very gracious about refilling wine glasses as we always bring our own wine for special occasions.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nom Nom in my tum tum
Awesome delicious food, the mussels with saffron cream was to die for and their Rosso was the best I have ever had.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was wonderful
We had a couple of their specialties- Polenta Fries and Boneless Beef Short ribs. I would definitely have them both again. I also had Pesto Risotto and a Beet Salad. Everything was very good. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant except it was a bit loud. Might have just been that night. We will be back again
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great experience
DeCarli is my favorite place to dine. I've never had a meal that was less than fantastic. DeCarli would stand out in any city and I'm so very glad they choose to be in Beaverton. The dining room and the private dining room are great for all sorts of occasions from formal to casual to business.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
An Oasis In Beaverton
decarli continues to provide an excellent dining experience. Varied menu, outstanding preparations, professional yet obtrusive staff - always dependable for a very enjoyable evening.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice food - good atmosphere
The food was great and the place had a good ambiance. I met three other coworkers there for dinner and we had a great time. I certainly recommend the place.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great experience at DiCarli's
What a great meal! From the appetizer (tapanade) to the dessert (ricotta fritters), everything was excellent.
The service was friendly and efficient, the wine was great, and the short ribs out of this world.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Good Date Night Spot
I made this reservation using TRIP Advisor and Open Table apps. I requested some information from the the restaurant.The restaurant called me, e-mailed me, and made sure everything was perfect for the eveningThe curb appeal set the stage. When we arrived my wife loved the location and decor. The exposed brick walls, hard wood floors, chandeliers, and candle light is the perfect setting. Our waitress Cameron represented Decarli's very well. Cameron had read the e-mail request that i made. Cameron, put together a fantastic 4 coarse meal with all the specials. She allowed my wife and I to enjoy each other without fussing with any details. It takes a very special server to get things right by my wife's standards and Cameron you did it 100%.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best in Beaverton
My family loves Decarli! The food is delicious and the space is great place for a date night, special occasion, or family dinner. We have never had a bad meal and the service is always superb. Great neighborhood place for fine dining without having to go into Portland.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Third time at Decarli and food was fabulous again. Love the food combinations, different but blend excellently together. Very busy (Tuesday evening) so a reservation will be needed any night of the week.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been several times and have never been disappointed. The food and service are wonderful and the ambiance is great too.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, a little rushed
We dined on a slow Sunday evening. The food was very good and the server was helpful with the wine choice. The only thing that was slightly off was that the courses were a little rushed. I was still eating my entree and was asked twice if I was finished. The restaurant was only half full so it wasn't necessary to turn the table over. My overall experiance was a good one however.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Looking for a delicious experience?
Our food was fantastic. The short rib dish was my favorite. Out server was very attentive and very sweet. I loved the ambiance and finding parking was so easy-which always makes things a little easier! We will definitely be back
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quite a nice restaurant for
Quite a nice restaurant for Beaverton...for any neighborhood as a matter of fact! The wine list is nice and reasonably priced! The food is very good! There could be a few more entrees to diversify the menu a bit, but all in all there is a good selection! The service is quite friendly and fast! The interior design is industrial modern...by my take...which I like.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Decarli is always our first choice for treating ourselves. The food is fantastic, it's close, and we feel welcomed and cared for every time we visit. If you haven't visited Decarli, you must try it. Be forewarned, though, you'll need reservations, because starting at opening time (5:00), the bar seating is maxed out, and you can't be sure to find an unreserved spot in the dining room. Thank goodness for Open Table!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, all was very good
As always, all was very good to excellent...food, service, ambience. And, we love those polenta fries as a starter.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were given a gift certificate to this restaurant and this was the first time we went there, so we didn't know what to expect. From the name, we thought it was an Italian restaurant. While there were some Italian dishes on the menu, I wouldn't call it a "true" Italian restaurant. However, the food was excellent. I had the pan-roasted brick chicken with bread pudding and my wife had the mushroom pasta. Both dishes were excellent. The chicken was moist and the bread pudding was a perfect side. The mushrooms were obviously fresh and cooked perfectly (not mushy). Corkage fee was a reasonable $15.
Noise level was fairly high and the place was packed (Saturday night), but we would definitely go again. Strongly recommend reservations!

A taste of NW 23rd in Beaverton
Had been here before for happy hour, but finally decided to come back for dinner. Why hadn't we done this sooner is what the four of us said all through the meal. We had the Beef Shortribs...they were delicious! Tender, flavorful, and ample portions. Too full for dessert, but we shared two anyway. Unbelievable smores and a salted caramel cheesecake that was an awesome finish to a great night.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service are top notch; a little noisy and so popular that service suffers a touch. Nonetheless, staff is always friendly, never harried, and the food is the perfect balance of flavors, aromas and textures.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love diCarli!
diCarli is one of our favorite restaurants (and this in a town filled with wonderful places to eat). Service is wonderful, not too intrusive, but done perfectly. There are several dishes we order whenever we're there (the polenta fries, for example) and we were glad to see them on the menu. Our friends were visiting from the Bay Area, another place that's chock-full of great places to eat, and they were impressed with our evening, as well. Two of us had the gnocchi in a wild boar ragu that was rich and delicious. Our friend ordered the pan roasted brick chicken, also a hit.
The wine list is substantial, and the mixed drink offerings are fun and interesting.
This is definitely a place to try!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took friends here for the first time and as always, Decarli impressed us. Surprised to see Decarli filled on a Sunday night but shows they're getting recognized for their great food, amazing drinks and atmosphere. Whenever we're at Decarli we can't believe there's a find like this in Beaverton. Definitely a neighborhood gem.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've eaten here about four or five times and have never been disappointed. The food is good and the service is excellent.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great place to take guests!
We had some business associates in town and picked decarli as our place to go. The food is EXCELLENT! They have a great wine list by the glass and bottle. Our server was excellent, recommended a few items on the menu, kept us happy and then left us alone to discuss business. decarli is very popular so you must have reservations. I haven't tried their happy hour but based on the crowd I'm going out on a limb and saying it must be fantastic - standing room only. Oh, you MUST try the salted carmel cheesecake - it's to die for!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a great place to eat and the staff is awesome!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food and great service
we had never been to Decarli and we're very pleased with everything we had .
We will return very soon.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistently the best Italian food in town. We've been all over Portland trying out Italian restaurants and keep coming back to Decarli in Beaverton. Had the gnocchi - it was absolutely perfect.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Decarli, A Great Local Place!!
As always the food was outstanding. There is no other place to go in the in the area for the quality and price.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
There are only one or two restaurants in Beaverton where you can get excellent food and service and Decarli is one of them.
