We enjoyed a marvellous supper at Paccamora. From the minute you're seated in Loredanas stylish and quirky cafe\restaurant you're made to feel like you're sharing an authentic Sicilian family meal. Bread, olives and antipasti are served immediately so that you can relax and choose your meal at leisure. The menu is short but each course is perfectly cooked and reflects the best ingredients available. Great coffee to finish as well! It's a place i know we'll revisit frequently. Thanks to Loredana, Mirko and Corinne!

I ate at Paccamora with a group of friends for an evening meal that was a real treat. Real home made italian food plus the best of local ingredients. Paccamora is such a welcome delight in Frome.
We started by tasting Loredana's own fresh olive oil made from her olives in Scilly with warm bread and balsamic vinegar.
We consumed mouth watering crisp fresh mushroom pancakes in a beautiful light cream sauce and a wholesome potato gratin with salad. Home made large Ravioli with smoked cheese and a fresh home made basil sauce.
For pudding we had indulgent exotic fruit ice creams and rich chocolate and cream pastries.
We bought our own wine and the bill was very reasonable.

Loredana is extremely helpful and so enthusiastic about her food. if you want something special and delicious just go to Paccamora. We are going again.

If you want a tasty pastry with your coffee well worth the climb up Catharine Hill. Or for something more substantial for lunch or dinner also an excellent place to visit. You are assured of a warm welcome from the proprietor and her staff. Not a large establishment but it more than makes up for the quality of the food and service. A call to make a booking is always a good idea as the locals have also discovered this gem. Well worth a visit plus an interesting area of this increasingly visited artisan quarter of Frome. As the Paccamora has no licence there are no alcoholic drinks on sale, BUT take your own favourite alcoholic beverage so no problem there.

Paccamora, what can I say? The lady and her niece were very welcoming to this lovely little cafe, the food we ordered was, while not cheap, was a little slice of Italy, so much so that we all had a dessert as well. The decor and surroundings of this lovely little place has a cosy homely feel to it and the owners personality matches this perfectly. I would highly recommend a stop by this place for anyone either visiting or living in Frome.

The best night out I have had in ages. Frome needs a great restaurant like this with tasty and unpretentious cuisine and fun, attentive service. I ate the cannelloni that melted in my mouth, having to eat much more slowly than usual ecstatically savouring every morsel. And on top of the orgasmic food Loredana and Steve had laid on the vocal talents of Miss Cherry Bomb. Almost too much for he senses of a mere mortal to bear.
