I've been wanting to try this restaurant for a very long time. Finally, we tried it for dinner and left disappointed. While the food was decent, it wasn't anything special that made me want to come back any time soon. They have a very nice wine list, our appetizer was good, and portion sizes were fairly generous, our entrees just... More

Decarli has a great happy hour with extensive food items and beer/wine/cocktail specials. The bar is small and the area is tight but there are many tables and places to sit around the restaurant. The Italian food is quite good and the pizzas.

Overbearing server. Food looked fantastic & solid happy hour menu. But it was too noisy & crowded at the front window section, with an overbearing waitress moving our table back from the 3 inches we gave the table next to us saying, "It's like sardines." There was no one next to us & lots of room. It was weird and... More

I want to love Decarli but can't seem to hit quite right. The food is always excellent but the service is spotty, we waited 10 minutes for water and a simple greeting in a fairly empty restaurant. The mixed drinks were not good - either the bartender doesn't know basic drinks or is ordered to water drinks down. Wine selection... More

The first time we visited Decarli, I had the gnocchi and it was fabulous! The second and third visits, the food was good but the cocktails were so-so. This last time, it was so loud that my husband and I could hardly hear one another, which isn't really conducive to a romantic night. Next time we'll save our money and... More

Some of the best mussels I have ever eaten. Great wine selection. Nice ambience. Good bar menu. And the food, so great. Everything we had was prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. Service was excellent. A great place to go.

We went to Decarli following a recommendation. We found it to be a very nice place to go for a happy hour meal. Their food is focused on local and seasonal and has a Italian/Swiss bent to it. We sat at the bar and the service was great and the bartender/server was very friendly and helpful. The food and wines... More

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.
