Description: 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 have eaten there several times. Each time the dinner has been excellent. Not your typical pasta place. Be sure to make reservations as they are a smaller establishment. The only draw back is the noise level. They are located in Old Town Beaverton in a open high ceiling brick building which means it can be a little loud, but... More

The food here is actually very good. BUT it was cold in Beaverton the evening we visited. A heavy dark cloth hung across the entrance to keep the cold wind out. Fortunately we were seated far away from the door. However, the room has very low light and is not well hearted. We were quite uncomfortable. But wait--not only was... More

Love the food. Ambiance is amazing. Drinks are wonderful. I usually get beer, but at deCarli, you will be in for a surprise with their great mixed drink specialties.

Get there early for happy hour to make sure you get a seat as it fills up fast. We had chicken panini that's served with a salad & was delicious. The service is always excellent. Our only problem was that it was so cold in the restaurant that we had to keep our coats on through the meal. With maybe... More

Staying in Beaverton for a few days and looked up this restaurant on Trip Adviser. I was delighted at the find. There was a happy hour at 4:30 and there were people waiting to get into the restaurant. Dinner starts to be served at 5 pm. There were some unique cocktails and a bar menu. After a cocktail at the... More

This is a regular spot for happy hour. Good to get there about 4:20. They open at 4:30 and seats fill quickly. Highly recommend the short rib sandwich and polenta fries with Gorgonzola butter. A small salad comes with the sandwich. Great bargain. Tell Jen hello. She's a sweetheart!

In general the Beaverton area is a desert for really good innovative food. Not any more--- check out this superb spot for service that is top notch and delightful food to meet most "foodie" tastes. We went here with our family after a Christmas play for an early dinner. What a treat. Cocktails were interesting and delicious. The appetizers had... More

We made a reservation for six with Open Table - noting that it would be nice to have a round table, and the we had one vegan diner. When we arrived, our round table was waiting, and the staff had already talked with the chef having a few vegan options in mind (there were none on the menu.) Throughout the... More

We had a delightful meal here. It was a surprise. Our friends had told us to try Decarli. Beaverton isnt known for it's great food. But, the four of us enjoyed our meals. The food was wonderful, wine selection was fine. Wait staff just ok. I would go back

Foodie friends gave Decarli their highest recommendation. After our visit, we'd sure agree. Located in a nice old area of Beaverton, with free street parking and a number of nice small iconic shops, upon entering the restaurant, we were struck by the the warm greeting, briskly busy open kitchen, and the lovely rustic brick walls and exposed timbers. The wine... More
