I am sad that I can no longer recommend Papa Charly's Pasta Factory. After having or meal and be attended to by our waitress, papa Charly's son retrieved our bill and brought our change, I was surprised that we were short 100 peso's. 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. Cooked... More

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.

This restaurant used to be called Utel. A couple from argentinia own it. Unfortunately the husband died a couple of years ago. The wife remains the cook and runs the restaurant. Food is excellent. Quaint little "hole in the wall" restaurant with excellent pastas, salad and service. Big portions. Great value

After Papa Charkly died we were afraid the little restaurant in Barrio Hollywood would close! For the locals and returning Winter visitors this little hidden gem is a must! Excellent Cannoli and Lasagna along with a few Argentinian dishes. We love PapaCharly!

We had been looking to eat here for a couple of years now so were exited to finally gets to Papa Charly's this past May. Service was great. The caesar salad was great but it wasn't so great from there. I ordered the Carbonara which is one of my favorite pasta dishes. The bacon was extremely fatty, and the sauce... More
