Wonderful Italian Food!

This was a must-go recommendation from an Italian, so it caught my attention. The good was excellent. Pizza with crust so thin and delicious you will not want to leave a crumb on your plate. The pasta is homemade and cooked to perfection. The service is also friendly, helpful and from time to... read more

I Truly liked this little find, its just off the fifth so no overpriced menu and no loud cacophony of music from surrounding establishments vying to be the loudest. The Pizzas were large and very tasty but the pastas whilst being perfectly cooked were lacking in taste, the pesto was bland it needed a lot of parmigiana to give it... More

We will return to this wonderful, off 5th Avenue, gem. Extensive and varied menu offers all home-made items. We had the Cannelloni, Seared Tuna, Spaghetti Carbonara and Shrimp pasta. All 4 of us agreed the presentation and seasonings of our entrees was outstanding. The service was friendly and attentive. We also enjoyed the live, unplugged music by Maria and Alejandro... More

Enjoyed the service and the food from this little place. Sitting in the bar across the street, they actually brought a menu over, took orders from about six of us, then brought the food over (on plates, with silverware) when it was ready. And brought our bills to us as well. Unreal service! The pizza was perhaps the best I... More

Went 2 nights in a row and was wowed by the flavour of their fresh pizza and their home made fresh pasta! Forget il Baretto - these guys are mere steps away and 10 times better! No excessive salt to mask bland flavour. This is my go to spot for every visit to Playa.

Have been going to Trattoria Del Centro for several years now since it was at it's old location. It's within walking distance from our condo so when we want a good inexpensive, Italian meal it is our to go to place. The ravioli, cannelloni & Pizza are always fresh & tasteful. When ordering a Pizza with mixed toppings they do... More

We really enjoyed the homemade pasta, delicious sauces, and yummy desserts here. The waiter was incredibly friendly and attentive. Some of the earlier reviews indicated that no alcohol is served here, but that is no longer the case; they have wine and other spirits. We will definitely return!

We went on our last visit to Playa. Although I have been there before this is my first review. The restaurant is authentic Italian food. I had pasta carbanara and my husband had ravioli. Both were delicious and very large portions. I highly recommend it.

Ran into this place by accident, it took us only a one minute chat with the funniest, charming waiter to decide to give it a shot. We had a fantastic experience. Sea food pasta was nothing less than amazing. Gnocci was ok plus, house wine is very nice and desert was light and super tasety. Enjoy!

Good hand- made pastas. Good alternative to 5th ave for a nice quiet lunch or supper. Recommended for couples and families. Not a noisy, party place. Worth trying.
