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.

Such salty food which was rather disappointing! I would be hesitate to return for any pasta at all. Service was fine - not overly inviting or rude by any stretch.

Only criticism is that it is very noisy - difficult for conversation on a busy night. Food was wonderful, though.

Went to Decarli on a recommendation. It was OK... It was a very heavy and oily meal. I would give it a 3 out of 5.

Unfortunately it was a little disappointing. We book with clients and use your private dining room next door. The past three times haven’t been great. Food not fully cooked and or over cooked and tough.
You may want to pay attention to the customers comments during the meal.

We have enjoyed meals here several times. This is one of my first choices when looking for a non-chain restaurant that fits the sweet spot of upscale dining that isn't too pretentious nor expensive. The parking situation isn't good, so be prepared to park a few blocks away. My biggest complain about the place is pretty common these days, which is that it is loud. My hearing isn't great and I struggle to hear the wait person speaking and have to lean in to enjoy the conversation at our table. We always enjoy the food and drink at Decarli!

I love this place so much! Great authentic Italian food. Usually we have a woman as our waitress who is very sweet and efficient. The last time a man waited on us and he was very slow, everything took forever. The delicious food makes up for his not so great service.

We have eaten at DeCarli many times. The past couple times it has not been up to their usual great experience. Our drinks were half-full when they brought them to our table. Pasta undercooked, no flavor, and very small portions. Salads were great. Service was excellent. Food just okay. Wondering if something has changed as the last time were there - about a month or so ago - we had the same experience, just not up to the usual great food we have come to expect for DeCarli.

It was such a treat to have the warmed olive hors d'ourves...delicious! We were disappointed that there was not more fish to choose from. We do not eat red meat. We did have an excellent chicken dinner. The garden salad had the perfect hint of salad dressing. Our waiter was outstanding. We had only eaten in the bar before...very good food there also. You do need a reservation for the restaurant..it is always packed. We will definitely be returning but next time we will bring friends.

Warm, inviting, and elegantly rustic. Scrumptious, flavorful food. Cozy, yet upscale.
Felt like the dining experience was worth the money and effort of going out! Not very many places can truly live up to that simple expectation, but Decarli's did.

The restaurant seemed very popular, was energetic, and lively. The menu is a bit limited, but the selection is good. The wine list was very nice. Only street parking exists, which proved to be a challenge. But I still recommend giving it a try.

Decarli used to be our favorite go to restaurant but was disappointed with the slow service, mediocre food (the shrimp in my pasta was tiny Oregon shrimps, sauce tased like from the can & in small portion, the chicken dish was overloaded with garbanzos (tasted like from the can), salad did not not have anchovies as advertised in the menu, ordered a $35 btl of wine and was charged $59. Alex, our server was very friendly and did his best to resolve some of our issues. Is there a change of management or owners?

The service was great and the food was well-balanced and flavorful. The menu was right sized, with good variety without being overwhelming. My only minor complaint might be that the wine servings could be 1 oz bigger, they seemed a little light. But overall, the prices were fair and everything was satisfying.

Decrarli is pretty much a Portland downtown eatery experience without leaving Beaverton.
Food , service and ambiance were all perfect. We had a party of 4 with 2 going for the famous short ribs and the others going for pasta dishes. No complaints from anyone at the table , only praise. Keep it up Decarli's

This is a great local restaurant where we go not infrequently for a very good dinner. The service and food are outstanding! They also have a nice wine list featuring but not exclusive to Italian wines. DiCarli's has been consistently good over the years. You can't go wrong taking guests for dinner here>
