Introduction: I've been cooking since I was eight years old and learned from my mother and grandmother how to make great Italian dishes and the love of making people happy with food. Growing up Italian, we always used fresh local ingredients daily, which meant I was going to the butcher and market to get ingredients for dinner for my mom. And through the years I've never used anything but freshest ingredients sourced at our local markets and farmers markets. We serve quality food that's home made just for our customers and use the freshest locally sourced products. We provide real home made family style Italian entrees that make you feel like you're in our home eating the recipes that I grew up on. Manga!

Great service and very professional. The food was excellent. Tasted great and looked great. The portion we’re large. Can’t wait to order for the next family party event. Thank you Jack

Great meal all around. Real homemade Italian food that I haven’t had in Dallas since moving here from the east coast. The portions were good size and the ingredients were fresh and cooked perfectly. You could tell the passion and love that went into Chef Jacks cooking.

Chef Jack was great! From our initial conversation I felt comfortable that he knew Italian Food and grew up cooking. We ordered chicken parm, rigatoni with Italian sausage, meatballs and Italian sausage, it would be an understatement to say everything was better than we expected. We’re from Philadelphia, and we missed real italian food since moving to Flower Mound. Chef Jack is from Philadelphia/New Jersey area and the food was real. I’m glad we found Pappa Cooks 2 and we plan on using them regularly. Reasonable pricing for how good the food was!


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We have set prices for our menu entrees and dishes and also offer custom menus and pricing off our menu as well. Our prices are based on the quality fresh local ingredients that we use and we don't believe in using standard quality for any of our dishes.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    An initial phone consultation to get information on the clients needs and compose an order with them. We require 48-72 hours notice for smaller orders and we will discuss time needed for larger parties.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been cooking for over 40 years, I've been the Chef/Owner of five restaurants over that time, have worked for corporate restaurants for 20 years and have consulted throughout my time. Our most recent restaurants were in the New Orleans area, one was the best of the south in AAA Travel magazine and our other was an acclaimed Bistro in the downtown area. I grew up in the food business and I had the best two teachers, my mother and grandmother, and being Italian, you're born knowing how to cook.
