“Never dissapointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Year after year we return to Papa Charly's for dinner and we are never dissapointed. The portions are huge enough to share (Ceasar Salad & Main meal). Even with wine, it is very inexpensive. You can however bring your own wine, with makes even more affordable. They make the best homemade pasta in Playa. Charly Jr is a hoot and always very welcoming and attentive. The ladies in the kitchen are amazing. We will be back again next year! Thanks!

“Home-made and taste like it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

With over 80+ Italian restaurants in PDC, the competition is stiff....but none other can hold a noodle up to PapaCharly's. Family atmosphere. Unpretentious and delicious! I don't need to say 500 words to let you know...just go. It is an easy 5 minute walk off 5th behind the athletic field...dont waste your evening elsewhere for home cooked italian food.I have been to a few others but none of them moved me to write. Enjoy!

“Quaint and friendly, and extremely yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Small restaurant with home made pasta and lots of great choices. Salads are definitely shareable. Pasta portions are great. And the crepas for dessert are a must. Also shareable.

Great place for family and or/friends for a nice meal out at very reasonable prices.

This place absolutely gets added to the list.

“Excellent again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

Made our annual visit to Util's Pasta Factory. Ordered spaghetti, lasagna and ravioli. As expected it was filling and authentic Italian food. Family run business, with a great atmosphere, that is a nice change to the busy restaurants on fifth. See you next year! (Or maybe next week!)

“Wonderful Family and Fantastic Pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

PapaCharly's is one of the places we had heard about, but were confused as to whether is was a full-blown restaurant, or just a pasta factory. I am so glad we decided to give it a go. The pasta, bread and salad were all wonderful and the ambiance and service were top notch. The more we get off of 5th ave, the more we love Playa and all it has to offer. This is a must-see when you are in town. I can't wait to go back!
