This was our first time coming to Ernesto's and we had a really good experience overall. The restaurant itself seems to be in a strip mall and a little small from outside but when we entered it seemed really big, they had lots if seating option and the decor was nice too. They had 3 different seating areas with tables and booths, a s ... read more

The service was attentive but not invasive. Allowed time to think about choices of meal interest and wine selection to enjoy. Staff friendly and knowledgeable about menu options. Quality of food was amazing and price was very reasonable.

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. One down side is that the portions are pretty small for the price. The ambience is super cute! They have pizza here as well and I'll probably give that a try next ti ... read more

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

I've only had takeout but this was really good, I can't wait to dine in!  I tried the eggplant Parmesan which was a very generous portion and I had leftovers for sure. It came with a side of pasta (I opted for cheese ravioli), also tasty. The bread is a nice focaccia with great fresh flavor. I look forward to trying this again and wi ... read more

I love this place and have been come here for yeats. i have tried many dishes and have never found a dish I didn't like. The antipasto platter takes me back to Tuscany and the Cannolis and Tiramisu are to die for!

I love Ernesto's. Growing up we came fairly frequently or would pick up their amazing sauces to-go for an elevated home spaghetti meal. 10 years ago I even had my wedding reception there, service was great and the food wonderful as usual. They were very accommodating with budget and I couldn't have hoped for anything better. I miss c ... read more
