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 going to Decarli's. Their food is wonderful. The beef shortribs should not be missed! My only complaint is that the atmosphere is a bit noisy because of the large, open room when the restaurant is full. They need to do something to absorb the noise a bit. If you can grab a seat outside the front door on... More

The food at Decarli is outstanding. Arguably the best in Beaverton. My wife is addicted to the polenta fries. Just remember, peak eating times are booked so expect a long wait if you haven't made a reservation.

This is sort of the city's agreed upon hangout spot, particularly on Friday and Saturday night, for people who are quite comfortable economically. "Not that there's anything wrong with that." The food is good, not outstanding, and the menu is fairly limited and doesn't seem to change with the seasons. The wine list is very good, however. I also find... More

I was in Beaverton visiting my best friends and family and had to try this place. And wow did Decarli deliver! We went on a crazy busy Friday night (luckily had reservations) and were seated next to a huge 50th birthday party table. Yes it was loud but the food and service were top notch. Delectable small oysters and polenta... More

We have visited DeCarli sevral times and have not been disappointed. The food always is very good, tastfully presented with good service. Prices are what would be expected at a top restaurant. DeCarli's specializes in pastas, so having pasta dish is recommended. My wife the cavattino with pork, She felt that the dish could have been less heavy. I had... More
