Still the best Italian food in Playa!

We go every year and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the wine flows freely and the price and service is very good.

Very good pastas and very good value. Well worth the search for this place which is between 30 Avenue and 20 avenue on 30 street. Not much for a wine selection, red or white. Best place for lunch.

Let me start by saying the wait staff and atmosphere was was great. The bread they brought out prior to our meal was very good. But all of the entrees we had were way too salty. We had the Cannelloni and Fettuccine Alfredo and Meat Lasagna. All of them had too much salt. It was all you could taste. I... More

So delicious! My friend and I both had lunch specials and they were so great! I had a house salad, the white wine chicken with potatoes and the cheesecake for dessert. It totally hit the spot and was such a bargain for the price! A very good option for people looking for something a little different than Mexican food.

Love finding these places out of the mainstream 5th avenue. Cannelloni was amazing! Great service and fun ambience. Will go back for sure

We went to Papa Charly for brunch on 14 December 2015. The food was spectacular (many gluten free options), coffee was some of the best we've had in South/Central America, and most notably the service was impeccable! It is also extremely well priced ($80-$100 peso per person for breaky, including meal and coffee). We'll be back for sure. Definitely recommend!

Tried other Italian on and off 5th ave. but came back twice simply because of the great flavour to the food. Lasagna great, pasta good, fish fantastic. And the price was easily half of the competition $90p or $8cdn approx for main? Not writing reviews on obvious tourist traps, just the outstanding finds
