About Us

Our Story

We are Francesca & Jacopo (Fran & Jac for everyone) and we run il Pakkero in Ashford, Kent. We moved from Rome to Ashford in 2009. We have always been working in the Catering & Hospitality industry and, in 2019 , we decided to make the big jump opening our own business. When it was time to open our restaurant, we wanted to offer something different and we went on a mission: let people know about the real taste of Italy, bringing in Ashford the real Pizza Romana (Thin & Crispy) cooked in a wood fired oven and a selection of Italian street food. Most of our food is homemade following the Italian tradition, every piece of our menu is an authentic grandma's recipe.

Our Food



Served All Day

Our traditional pizza romana differs from the classic Neapolitan Pizza for its thin and crispy base. The light pizza base, a result of a 48-hours proof process, is hand-stretched, topped with fresh ingredients and cooked in our wood fired oven for only 90 seconds.
