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.

We were visiting from out of town and had dinner on Valentines Day. The foie gras was very good. The citrus reduction with it was perfect. We really enjoyed the various bruschetta were great. We had gnocci that melted in your mouth which i really like that way. We also had the pizza with caramelized onions and arugula- the dough was exceptional, light and fluffy with thin crisp bottom. Great meal!

We eat here two or three times a month. It’s that good! I usually have something different each time, this last time the beet salad and arancini. SOO good! My husband always has the short ribs, never disappoints. Great bar, great happy hour, perfect service! Thx!

I thought the selection of fresh pastas was large and unique. I had the cavatelli with a boar ragu that was excellent and was a very filling proportion. Most smaller Italian restaurant have at most two his and hers restrooms. There were three emasculate multi-use restrooms to avoid any waiting. One of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten at on the West Coast!

Great food as always, our server was attentive and prompt. He even comped my dessert for my birthday, and put a candle on it. Didn’t sing Happy Birthday, which I thought was a plus (though I’m sure he is a fine singer.)

deCarli is a go-to for the short ribs and for a upscale atmosphere without outrageous price. Great service, all the food is fantastic!

We eat at Decarli once or twice a year and the food is always great. Very noisy though. It seems they could put fabric or something in the ceiling and walls to attenuate the noise down to just a roar.

Decarli is always a great experience. Along with our friends, my wife and I had a wonderful evening. Upon sitting down, we shared with our server that we wanted to take our time with our dinner experience, and the Decarli crew did a great job. The food was wonderful, and our server was so supportive and relational. Decarli is our regular go-to because it never disappoints!

Decarli is good Italian food. They have kids menu which was a plus. Very nice, cozy atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable. We’ll be back!

Why Decarli….. The Short Ribs of course. It was a Saturday night and even at 5:30 the dining room was starting to fill up. We are Decarli regulars despite moving to Ridgefield, Wa. We entertained friends from the Midwest and opened an 07 Barolo for the occasion. Despite the noise level and staff being a little short handed, it was an enjoyable evening. We have to remember that mid week evenings are a little less stressful for the staff and kitchen.

Will we return...…………. absolutely.

The food is very mediocre for the prices. The desserts, however, were very good. We had creme brulee and an apple crumble. Entrees and apps were bleh.

Went to Decarli with family on a busy Friday night. Food was fantastic, our favorite was the short rib & chicken. Our server though, is why we will definitely return. Anthony didn’t skip a beat, well versed on menu, personable and he’s got jokes!!

Overall, surprisingly disappointing for our business meeting. We think they misplaced our order, and it took over an hour to get our entrees with no input from our waiter. My entree was so salty I couldn't eat it but it had gotten so late that I said nothing.
In the future, we may try again to see if service and food is better.

The food and service were both outstanding. They ran out of their salted caramel cheesecake so I was ‘forced’ to try their Apple cobbler- soooo good! I always get the short ribs but my husband tried the stuffed chicken- both were very good!

We had our family Christmas dinner here, there were 6 of us. Our table was ready when we arrived as we had made a reservation in advance. Our server was prompt and attentive, she made custom “mock tails” for our girls and was quick to ask if refills were needed. The food was incredible and we had a great time! We will definitely be back again.

Was great overall, but table is too small for 4 top and you should never have to ask for a spoon...twice. Wine selection was great with many old world selections in new world styles.
