Our server (who may be the owner, I'm not sure) said the above when complimented on the amazing meals and it is so true! This was without a doubt the best Italian meal I have ever had. From the atmosphere to the food to the great prices, everyone should eat here! The portion sizes are large so the four of... More

Finally had a chance to visit Util, now Papa Charlys. The pastas were fresh with handmade noodles and generational sauce recipes that make this a wonderful, local experience. Only a red and white wine option by the glass but our choice for red was Luis Felipe from Argentina; a solid performer, extremely quaffable and affordable at the same time! The... More

I told our waitress of course she asked about it, without any one double checking our change... More

I really wanted to eat pasta but got welcomed with a whole menu for 90 pesos. The food was really good and refined. Some of the things were not that obvious for such a restaurant, hence the surprise. There was definitely mastery in the kitchen. Excellent pasta with spinach for starter, chicken in crust for main (a little dry but... More

I attended a lovely dinner last night at Papa Charly's! There were about 20 of us and we all had a wonderful time...brought in our own favorites wines and gorged ourselves on their fantastic pasta. The garden dining area is now completely covered with beautiful hanging lights and fans to cool the space a bit. If you haven't been there... More

Papa Charlie has outdoor seating in a nice area with music and good service. If papa Charlie is there hes sure to say hello and have a glass of wine with you. The pasta is fantastic and the lasangna is wonderful, I took an extra dish home to heat up later!

This was nearby our hotel and good reviews so took a while to find it and headed in. Friendly service and you choose your pasta and sauces from a grid (about 15 pastas and 20 sauces!) so you know how much you are paying (90-150 peso) and they said as it's freshly made you can add and remove bits.

Have eaten at papa Charley's at least once ( or 3x) every time for the last 1/2 dozen trips to Playa. While it was always a joy to spend time with Charley Sr and enjoy a great dinner, his son and family have done a remarkable job of continuing all that was wonderful.Great pasta and good/reasonable wines plus great service.
