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.

I love that this restaurant popped up a few years back in Beaverton. Unfortunately, Beaverton doesn't have many really good quality restaurant/bar options that have not only great food, but a great atmosphere as well. The bartender is amazing and always friendly. I've never gotten bad service while dining there. Staff is awesome!

It's awesome to have a nice restaurant like Decarli right in little Beaverton. Saves us the hassle of sitting in traffic to get to PDX. We enjoy the happy hour eats and the fabulous cocktails. The staff is excellent. The only downside is the noise level - when the place gets busy it's very noisy!

Usually enjoy the happy hours, but the actual restaurant is a must. Great food, awesome service! I'd pit the Decarli dining experience against any restaurant downtown and you don't have to go all the way down there. Don't forget about Watsons around the corner.

Decarli is an excellent eatery to be found in the downtown area of the small city of Beaverton, OR. Pros include tasty meals and excellent service. Negative would be the excessive noise level. Investment of some sound proofing would pay great dividends.

This is our go to place when we want a great meal. My favorite dish is the house made gnocchi with truffle- best gnocchi I've ever had! Great atmosphere, knowledgable, nice waitstaff, a great wine list and the food is excellent. I'm so happy to have a restaurant of this caliber in my own neighborhood!

We have been to this restaurant for happy hour and loved it. Decided to go the day before Valentine's Day as it is always booked solid. We practically had the restaurant part to ourselves. Thank goodness for reservations. Loved the wine selection and ordered a bottle. Ordered the polenta fries as an appetizer. So good. Ordered our lovely salads, one... More

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.
