Loved my meal!! Very good service. We had a big group and even though we didn't have a reservation (they don't take reservations) we hardly had to wait and the restaurant was packed. My husband didn't like his Ravioli but most of us liked our...More

Pesto Cafe just might be a place that only locals can love. After all, we're used to the hippie vibe. Or maybe a takeout order is the way to go. Whatever you do, be sure to savor every bite. This is some delicious, hearty Italian...More

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

First time visit. From the outside it looks like a divey type place. Entering you still get that feel but it is intimate and semi- romantic. Started with a glass of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Reserve ($8 ). I love this wine even at the higher...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
