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.

Good food, great service, it's a nice change for downtown beaverton. The menu is spot on for Northwest food and it offers some great beer options as well.

Excellent food - have eaten here numerous times and will be back; have had a variety of dishes from chitarra (pasta) to pork to short rib and all were well prepared and delicious. Polenta fries are yummy and I don't actually/typically care for polenta. Nice setting in downtown Beaverton with reasonably easy parking (I have never had a problem).

A bit unconventional for a restaurant billed as Italian, nevertheless excellent food. Menu featured a lot of steak & seafood items which seemed to be what most of the tables around us were ordering. We opted for the gnocchi with bolognaise sauce and the spaghetti with shrimp. The spaghetti dish was very nicely done; the gnocchi dish was outstanding. The... More

Decarli is one of the best restaurants in Beaverton. Service was great as well as the food. They are not open everyday, so make sure you check their schedule.

Polenta fries and salted Carmel cheesecake are amazing. I have them every time I go, and are now a standard.

Great food. Their polenta fries and gorgonzola butter are to die for. Combine them with the mussels and I am in heaven! Great drinks, great staff. Just wish it was larger as it's always packed!

All the reviews said to try this establishment so we did! The staff and food exceeded our expectation but of course, once I say that some are going to expect too much and be let down. It's all perspective. Service was solid and the food was...stick to my bones, GOOD. We went back the 2nd night! We rarely do that... More

The main dining room is very nice with a slight "industrial design" feeling. Very helpful and friendly service. Most importantly food was great at very reasonable prices.

The highest Trip Advisor rated place in Beaverton, so I'll start with what's very good. Service: excellent. Wait staff and hostess were great on a very busy evening. Very, very friendly and warm. The beer selection is four good varied drafts the wine selection is regionally appropriate, though not superb. The menu is stated as chef driven and from local... More

Okay...I'll admit it... I'm a food snob. When we moved from the East side to the West side, I was certain I would be eating all my weekend meals (tearfully) at Arby's, Wendy's and Pizza Schmizza... My neighbor told me about DeCarli...and MAN o man am I glad she did! The food is fresh and tasty and not too fussy.... More
