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.

Outstanding service! We had an amazing time here for my birthday dinner. The whole experience was just amazing. We felt safe and that they took extra precaution to ensure that everything was sanitary, people were distanced apart and we felt like we had our own space. The food was phenomenal, our server gave us the best experience! We will be coming back!

Great meal as usual. The service was outstanding; thank you Marty for a pleasant evening.
The only thing missing was the gnocchi which hasn't been on the menu for a while.

We reserved a table outside due to social distancing. They handled it well, tables were far enough apart and all staff wore masks. Food was great, as was the service. It was so nice to be able to go out for a nice meal and feel comfortable with it. Overall, great evening!

The food was absolutely amazing. My husband and I had never been before and with a $50.00 gift card in hand, we decided to try it out. I first went online to look at the menu and read the reviews and they were all fantastic. What I did learn is that the menu is a rotating menu and many times even the staff don't know what will be for dinner until they arrive to set up. However, the Polenta Fries with Gorganzola Butter seems to be a stample and they did not disappoint. I actually took my remaining bread and cleaned out the last of the butter with it. The only thing I would have changed, would have been to turn up the lights just a wee bit. The walls, floors and ceilings are quite dark and just a little more light from above would have made it easier to read the menu.
We are already planning another night out with some friends and we plan to go back for a scrumptious meal. Keep up the great work.

So nice that DeCarli's is back open again. Their food is the best in Beaverton by far and will rival any Portland restaurant in taste and quality. Service is always attentive, they have a great wine selection at reasonable prices and their deserts are always changing and unique. Known for their pastas and short ribs but always have few new surprises on the menu that have yet to disappoint.

If you havent been, I highly recommend.

It had been awhile since we last dined at Decarli's and thought it was time we should support an all time favorite restaurant during this pandemic.
Jana, Paul and staff are as cordial and welcoming as they have always been which definitely adds to the enjoyment of the evening.
Our entrees were delicious and without a doubt we would order them again. Hoping to soon while they still have Trofie on the menu.
Thanks for a great evening.

I had a fantastic birthday dinner here recently. The food was incredible. There’s a pasta dish with homemade bacon. Get that! Plus, the decarli drink was awesome, and the service was flawless. It’s well worth a night out here.

My wife and I have enjoyed DeCarli for years. They consistently deliver great food and service which is why we keep coming back. Our most recent visit was exceptional with the kitchen providing a new level of dishes that were even better than before. The kitchen seems inspired to be back cooking amazing food for their guests. Another silver lining during these crazy times.

My husband told them it was my birthday twice and it wasn’t acknowledged. He was disappointed but was not a big deal to me - I actually laughed when he told me. It did not distract from a fantastic meal. The burrata app and braised short ribs are a must.

This was my second time at decarli with my husband and the experience was quite different than the first! The overall service was poor compared to our first time at the restaurant. The restaurant was full and appeared adequately staffed for the reduced seating. When we walked in for our reservation we weren’t acknowledged by anyone for 5 minutes though we were seen by multiple staff. When we were finally acknowledged it was past our reservation time and we were informed we’d need to wait for a table.

Once we were sat our waiter came and provided waters and menus and promptly left, we didn’t see him again for 7+ minutes. When he stopped back by we placed a drink order but he rushed off before we were able to place a food order. A few minutes later we were able to flag down a different waiter and ask for a bread and butter basket which other tables had been seemingly receiving automatically upon arriving. It was several more minutes before we saw our waiter again to place our food order. The food was excellent! We observed three other waiters who were frequently rounding on their tables adding to our feeling of being unattended.

Our first time at decarli was so wonderful with a superb waiter and service it was disappointing this second time to not have an equally superb experience. That being said we will most definitely be back as the food truly was incredible! Hopefully our experience next time will be more the first time.
