Italian
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.

3 of us ordered the short ribs. The 4 th in our party ordered wood oven pizza and it came way late. Apparently lots of folks ordered pizza that night. Our server was super attentive and comped us the pizza.
Was a great meal though.

Local favorite, we visit here several times a year. Always a good dining experience. The pasta is always cooked to perfection. Short ribs and brick chicken are staples on the menu and always delicious. Appetizers and dessert are also fantastic and the wine list is approachable. Good wine without spending a fortune. We enjoyed a recommended $34 Italian red which was very very good.

DeCarli is a great upscale restaurant in the middle of a downtown Beaverton that is undergoing a renaissance. The wood floors, white walls, high ceilings, and tablecloths make you feel both comfortable but aware that this will be a fancier dining experience than you usually get outside of Portland proper. The food tends towards the richer side of things (my dining partner had their ever wonderful espresso-rubbed beef ribs while I had their homemade tagliatelle with chanterelles). Both the wine list and the cocktail list are excellent. The desserts are tasty (I had a s’more tart that was maybe a bit much). My only complaint was that there’s no sound buffering, so we had a hard time hearing each other! Otherwise, it was an outstanding experience.

The food was excellent...well prepared and very tasty. It was very busy (a Saturday evening) so the service was understandably a little slow. Our only hesitation about returning is the noise level. Since there were just two of us, we could sit close enough to be able to converse, but it would have been difficult to have a four-way conversation. The lack of any draperies or other acoustical accommodations means that any noise gets bounced around, making people talk louder which of course creates more noise bouncing around! We would definitely recommend decarli to friends for the delicious food...but we’d make sure they were aware of the noise issue.

The pardrone peppers were a perfect starter - not too heavy and very tasty, only a little heat. The burrata was served with heirloom tomatoes, pickled cherries and melon, very seasonal and very tasty. The tagliatelle was delicious - pancetta, corn, mushrooms, a little cheese, and sage. Cappucinos to finish, love the D’Arte espresso. Service was perfect as always. So lucky to have this wonderful restaurant in Beaverton.

Great service and food was tasty. Appetizer was not exactly our taste but was still prepared very well. Dinner was excellent. Only big drawback is that the Wine selection is very lacking. Also the noise level is a little loud, but not unmanageable.

Was looking for something that felt fancy and had great food and Decarli satisfied both of those categories! Food was great, atmosphere was upscale without being pretentious, was perfect for a date night out away from kids. Definitely one of the few fine dining options west of the Portland, worth the trip!

We used to always get the steak and just rave about it. Now even the waitperson does not recommend. Too bad. We would come more often if we could get the good steak they used to have!
Service was so-so, but understandable as it was a busy night. We had a great time!

We have been to DeCarli many times, but this experience was hugely disappointing. No air conditioning on a 95 degree evening. The restaurant had to have been at least 80 degrees. Other than taking our order we never saw our waitress again. Our salads, entree and additional water was all delivered by another staff member. We had to flag another server down to ask for bread, then go to the station to collect the butter ourselves. As usual the food was very good. However this does not make up for the horrible service we received.

The restaurant had a wonderful feeling inside with the brick and exposed pipes though it was a bit warm for my comfort. The tables are nicely spaced so you feel like you are having your own personal dining experience. The food was delicious, creative and offer great options from appetizers to dessert!

Went for anniversary dinner. Sat at bar while we waited for our table to be ready. Bartender very nice. Got the Paloma drink, tasty couldn't really taste the alcohol. Had the Burrata which is a fresh mozzarella and the peppers for appetizers, so very yummy. Had the beef cheek pasta, very tasty as well. Finally had the blueberry trifle for dessert. Most impressed with the pasta. Server was very friendly honest and attentive. Had an excellent evening. I'll be going back again for sure!
