This is a local fave and one of the best hole-in-wall restaurants in town. Don't let the fact that it's located in a motel parking lot scare you - it adds to the charm. I think it's the most honest Italian food in NWA if...More

Probably our third time here. Comfortably eclectic, listening to good jazz right now. We love the "pizzas" all fresh ingredients. I had Amy's Amazing Aphrodisiac, delicious veggies . Scott had Mara's magical Make, which is like mine but with pepperoni and pine nuts. The pizzas...More

We had dinner here for Valentine's Day. The parking lot was already getting packed at 530pm. Great casual dining and the cannelloni is the best EVER! It's a very large dish so we always share. Cozy little place to eat! A must when visiting Fayetteville,...More

The food at Pesto Cafe (still known to some as Ghazi's) is Italian at its best. Located in a section of the disreputable-looking Chief Motel, the long-time (~40 years old) restaurant has great food served by helpful staff in a space surrounded by old posters,...More

Where to begin..?? This place bills itself as "authentic Italian". Not sure how they think what the offer and serve is authentic Italian. First, the pizzas offered on a 'special thin crust' are actually 12" flour tortillas. Ever entree comes with angel hair- even the...More

We have eaten here multiple times and it is always great. I try to choose something different from the menu every time. I haven't found anything that I didn't like. We enjoy bringing our out of town guests here.
