My husband and I enjoy lunch at Ernesto's at least once a week. From the greeter, to our favorite waitress, Emma, and the wonderful food, this restaurant has become one of our favorites. We've noticed a lot of regulars at Ernesto's, and we are now one of them.

We went to this place for dinner having been here in the past and again, it did not disappoint. We were promptly seated and the waitress (Anne?) waited on us. We placed our drink and food order and the drinks were served in short order....More ... read more

The lights are too bright, I was expecting a more intimate atmosphere. Focaccia bread was dry, prefer regular Italian bread. Lasagna was salty, but that could just be me.

This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the area. The food is incredible. The manicotti is my go-to. The owner is also really great, she’s a firecracker and cares about people. I order delivery from here a lot and it’s the best thing ever. You will not be disappointed. You’d have to be a critical person in general to find something ... read more

Great service, got a nice lady with a semicolon tattoo 😊 and also the food was amazing , I recommend the meat lasagna it was amazing and the seafood piccatta was also a hit but that lasagna was just the bomb, will definitely be back, bread on.the table when you sit is also a plus !

This was our first time coming to Ernesto's and we had a really good experience overall.

They had 3 different seating areas with tables and booths, a s ... read more

Good, old fashioned, italian family food. It's the kind you grew up with. They serve tasty focaccia bread with meals too! Salads are fresh with delicious dressings and entrees are delivered hot and hearty.

Our regular happy hour hangout in the culinary dessert that is Beaverton Hillsdale Highway.  The restaurant is just 5 minutes from our house in Hillsdale and when we do not feel like venturing into the city, this is our go-to spot.  We always sit in the bar (which is very crowded at HH bty), and order individual pizza's that are enou ... read more

I would go here again just for the bread they served at the beginning. So yummy! We ordered the vegetarian Lasgna and Eggplant Parmigiana and were happy with our choice.

I started coming here for the lunch buffet and it's really good at a really great price. Salad bar is always stocked and I love their minestrone soup. Rotating entrees each day of the week and there's always something that I say to myself is pretty damn good. It's not your typical buffet restaurant quality food for lunch. There's dif ... read more
