Papa's Pastaria is the 9th game in the Papa Louie's restaurant management series that was released by Flipline Studios on December 9th, 2013. Doan and Utah are the default workers in the game, but players can create their own custom worker as well. The game is set in the town of Portallini, the hometown of the Romano Family. The winner of Kingsley's Customerpalooza 2013, Hope, makes her official debut as a customer in the game.
Customers can now choose either to wait in line (as they have in previous games) or now take a seat in the dining room. Players can now "hire" a second worker (Doan, Utah, or a second Custom Worker), to take orders from customers who choose to place their orders from the dining room. The game has four stations: Order Station, Cook Station, Build Station and Bread Station.
Become Portallini's primo pasta chef in Papa's Pastaria!
It's a destination wedding in the waterfront town of Portallini, home of Papa's Pastaria! You're in charge of Papa's newest restaurant, where you'll take orders, cook noodles, and add sauces and toppings to craft a perfect plate of pasta!
Little Edoardo asks Olga for her hand in marriage, to which Olga accepts. Doan/Utah/Custom Worker receives an invitation to their wedding in Portallini. After mailing the RSVP, he/she tries to reserve a hotel room on the Travel Trout website in Portallini in the spring, only to find that there are no rooms available. Changing the option to "any season", the site offers one room available at Papa's Pastaria. Happy to find the room available, Doan/Utah/Custom worker makes his/her choice. Immediately, the doorbell rings, and a package from Travel Trout is left at the doorstep. Upon opening the package, he/she sees that the box contains the Pastaria uniform, an employee manual, and an airline ticket from Burgerburgh to Portallini via Gondol-Air leaving IMMEDIATELY. Doan/Utah/Custom Worker then realizes that he/she has now been enlisted to work Papa Louie's newest restaurant, much to his/her dismay.
The ending sequence for this game is at Rank 65. Papa Louie officiates the wedding ceremony of Little Edoardo and Olga, in front of family, friends, and many of Papa's customers in attendance.
- A dining room. Some customers would want to go there, and another worker (Utah, Doan, or Custom worker), will help out by taking and bringing them their orders. This feature is unlocked "a few ranks in" (as quoted by Tony).
- Holiday themed clothing.
- Adjustable volume settings.
- Separate music and sound effect buttons.
- The end-of-day minigames will now show the amount of stars players have received (the number of prizes won) by winning the game. If all of the stars are filled, it means that the player has won all of the prizes available.

- Burgerzilla (Thursday)
- Maple Shot (Friday)
- Mitch's Mess (Saturday)
- Grab-a-Roni Gondola (Sunday)
- The location of Papa's Pastaria is in the city of Portallini.
- One of the new customers is the 2013 Kingsley's Customerpalooza winner, Hope.
- This is the first gameria where neither of the chefs debuted in Papa Louie: When Pizzas Attack! nor Papa's Pizzeria.
- This is the second gameria featuring a chef (Doan, Tony's friend) based on a real person.
- This is the only gameria where the chefs' uniform comes with a tie.
- More formal uniforms were chosen because they're working at a pasta restaurant in a classy town.
- If you look closely in the intro, you seem to reside in Burgerburgh because of the plane ticket's Departure Town.
- This is the first Gameria to implement the Dining Room, and the first gameria where you can hire help.
- This is the first game to have a Cook Station and a Bread Station.
- This is the second game where an item in the order needs to stay warm in order to receive a good score for the station.
- This is the first game that will allow the player to adjust either the music OR the sound.
- When all the sound is muted, the toaster in the bread station can still be heard and the ads will have volume.
- This is the first Gameria since Hot Doggeria where the tutorial customer is not the other "chef."
- This is the first gameria in which the other chef will be absent from the game if you pick custom server.
- This is the first Gameria since Pancakeria where a customer was ever absent.
- For some people, getting 100% on the building score turned out to be harder than Papa's Cupcakeria because of the sauce and toppings. However it's still possible and others are still able to get some perfects.
- It should noted that Papa Pastaria is the first game that lacks any posters or furnitures that boosts the score for all holiday toppings and few other ingredients. Because of this, players are required a lot of extra effort on customers' orders when their favorite holiday is active.
- Kahuna returns to his old position as closer after three games as a regular customer. Matt said that they had Kahuna as a closer in Papa's Freezeria HD, so it 'felt right' to have Kahuna as a closer. This caused a considerable amount of backlash among fans.
- Santa visits only during the Christmas holiday and starts with a Silver Customer award.
- How the closers dress up as Halloween:
- Deano: Astronaut
- Kahuna: Tiki man
- Crystal: Frankenstein's Wife (Cannoli is a devil)
- The rest of the closers, who were also closers for Cupcakeria, dress up the same as they did that time.
- If you look closely in the intro when Doan/Utah/Custom Worker look up the Pastaria on Travel Trout, you can see a link to terms and conditions which may explain the fact that you had to work for the Pastaria which the character does not click.
- In the shop, in the Furniture and Wall/Floor tabs, when things are listed in holiday order, it starts from Valentine's Day to New Year, the order that Cupcakeria did, even though in this game it goes from Chilifest to Romano Wedding.
- When the server enters the Order Station and activates the doorbell, it will ring with a soft, tinkling sound (sounding like: dinkading) but if a customer enters the station personally, the doorbell will make its usual sound (DRING-A-DING) characteristic of it since its introduction in Burgeria.
- If the server is waiting to relay an order in line, he/she will not partake in entertainment devices (e.g. video games, tropical punch, bubblegum).
- Two customers a day go to the dining room. They are the customer after the first one and the customer before the closer.
- If the restaurant closes before any orders were taken, there will be a line of 3-5 customers. Once you take the order of the first person in the dining room, also the assistant, the assistant will come back again along with the closer. They will be in the same spot while walking for a few seconds.
- The dining room customers don't seem to use any entertainment devices, but they'll still have the same speed of patience.
- After Olga and Edoardo's wedding happens the player can view it again by clicking on the film camera icon after pausing the game, which is near the sound buttons.
- You might notice that each closer orders a different bread (except Jojo) after all of them are unlocked.
- Deano: Garlic Breadstick
- Kahuna: Cheesy Bread
- Quinn: Pepperoni Bread
- Crystal: Foccacia
- Radlynn: Poppyseed Roll
- Xolo: Crescent Roll
- If there's pasta in a colander, and after serving a customer while there's still pasta in a colander, and there's nothing else in the build station, then it will redirect to the order station.
- This is the first gameria where there are more female customers than male customers.
- If you listen closely to the parade music, it sounds extremely similar to the Marinara Rapids from Papa Louie: When Pizzas Attack!
- On all of the holiday sauces, except Rico's Chili, the jar shape is the same as one of the 5 standard sauces.
- The pattern of holiday ingredients is this: sauce, pasta, topping, shaker, then pasta, sauce, shaker, topping.
- There is a design flaw with the game in which stirring and removing pasta exactly on time will still result in a cooking score no higher than 96%, and even lower if the player is late or early. This makes both the badges "Cooking Expert" and "Perfect!" impossible to earn. Complaints about this oversight have been minimal.
- Both Co-Owners of Flipline are unlocked with a Sauce.
- In St. Paddy's Day, the water becomes green in colour.
- This is the only gameria where Papa Louie isn't appear in the intro.
- This is the only gameria where Kahuna does not celebrate his favorite holiday, Summer Luau, but he still celebrates all of them and that holiday as a closer.
