This is the best Italian food I've found in the SW Portland area in my 35 years here - the pizza is killer! Ravioli, salads, actually everything I have tried there rocks! Staff, atmosphere, and food are all top notch. Not that I want everyone running down to my favorite little hole in the wall so I can't get a seat, but......

The bar section is great for after work or school with coworkers or friends. Love the atmosphere as well as the pizza! I'm a BIG fan of italian food so it was a nice setting for me anyways. This particular time i sat in the dining area because i was having dinner with my family. I love how there are two different sections but i enjoyed my food as well as the staff. Ive been to other restaurants with bad customer service and i can honestly say this is the best customer service ive ever been exposed to. This is now one of my favorite restaurants and i cannot wait to go back!!! All around 5 star loved it!!

I just posted a review of Nonna Emelia's. I did not fully appreciate how good Ernestos was till I tasted the other half of the family fare. For two broithers that grew u p in the same house their representation of food is quite different. One is very good while the other is awful. Ernestos is worth your drive time. Don't waste your time at Nonna Emelias. Along with the food being below par their attitude, frankly, sucks.

Ernesto's has, without a doubt, the best lasagna I've had anywhere around here. The other food is also terrific, especially the seafood fettuccini. Great service. Reasonable prices. Convenient parking. We go to Ernesto's every chance we get and are always glad we did. If you like good Italian food, served in a comfortable environment, give this one a try!

YUM! this place is my favorite place in Beaverton to eat. The only con is they keep refilling the bread and i eat too much. everything has a very home made taste and feels like i am having a family dinner in Italy.
For the average dinner:
Real Italian food rely on the taste of high quality ingredients not spices. Many of my uneducated friends find this place bland where chefs and food lovers will rant and rave about the quality and taste.

As a mother of 4 of which 2 are special needs we find Ernesto's a family friendly restaurant. The children are welcomed and treated as part of a great Italian family.
The food caters to the most picky eater (which we have) and to my husband who loves the spaghetti and meatballs. I have yet to find anything cafetria like. The only down fall is we live 27 miles away.
