I live nearby but had never tried this place before. Stopped by for the lunch buffet today and it was excellent. Food and service were top notch, loved the salad bar. All for only $10! I'll definitely be coming back.

The side order for salad allows you to make one trip to salad bar and you pick what you like and as much as you can carry in your plate. This is a big plus for this restaurant .All the servings are very large sized and you do end up taking food home.The pizzas made in this restaurant are true signature pizzas. I tried Ernie's Pizza w ... read more

Didn't discover this place until a few years back unfortunately. I have to say for me, the meat or cheese tortellini is the best thing on the menu. Their Cesar salads are also tasty as well. Tonight i tried something different. Went with the chicken lenguni with the cream sauce. Took a while to get our food which made me upset. Howev ... read more

I stopped here yesterday as soon as I arrived on a weekend trip! So naturally I was starving, and Italian cuisine sounded delicious.  My cousins recommended this spot and we arrived early before the dinner rush on a Friday night. I ordered a glass of Pinot noir with a cup of minestrone soup along with penne pasta with chicken breast.

Good Italian Food
I had never been to Ernesto's before. Way bigger inside than it's strip mall facade would indicate. I confess that Italian is not usually on my radar for eating out. We had a gift certificate which is why we ended up here. I thought portions were a little on the small side. I ordered Chicken Parmigiana which was tasty enough. I thoug ... read more

Comfortable and cozy restaurant serving competent traditional red sauce Italian. Next I'll try the pizza which I hear is very good.

We enjoyed an excellent meal and especially liked the Ceasar salad and focaccia bread. The portions are good sized and we took home enough for another meal. Chicken fettuccine and a veal dish were well seasoned, hot and delicious. We will be back to try the bar menu too.

A First Time Visit to an Old Restaurant
This Italian restaurant has been here for 30 years but it was my first visit. I had driven by many times but missed it as it sits back off of Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway with only a small shared sign out front. Upon entry one is greeted with the feeling you have stepped into an old restaurant in Tuscany. The restaurant is huge with ... read more

Maybe I've just had enough lasagne in my life to not get excited about anyone's. Fine atmosphere but typical, adequate service, fine good, just common, nothing special.

Awesome Italian Food and Service
My wife took us to Ernesto's for our 33 year anniversary and she picked a good one! First off, don't let the location fool you. Located in the corner of a strip mall, it might not stand out, but park it and head inside! We arrived right at the lunch/dinner change over but were seated right away by Mark, the manager.

Excellent service, very nice portions. I had the 1/2 & 1/2 pasta was ala dente, ravioli were good. Sauce had lots of meat. I am from out of town and it satisfied my craving for pasta. It's close to my hotel, easy parking and the service was excellent. I will go back. Need to try the pizza.

Homey, old Italian style
Have been going here for over twenty years. Food is not your new trendy Italian, but all your old favorites are here. What brings us back is the wonderful salad bar (hard to find anymore). Decor is schmaltsy Italian, but very cozy, especially in winter. You will have a very nice meal and a warm greeting at a reasonable price.

Delicious, peaceful and easy, free parking
This restaurant feels like Italian restaurants in America felt 40 years ago. Pictures of Italy on the walls and plenty of spaghetti meatballs if you want that.
