You wouldn't think by looking at the location this would be a great place to eat but it is one of the best in Fayetteville. they have big portions so my friend and I always split a meal.

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

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.

I've only been here once because I couldn't believe I spent around $50 for two people and not only did I hate the food but it took forever to come out. Also, parking is sparse and inconvenient.

Looking for something that wasn't a chain during a business trip to Fayetteville. Great cozy little restaurant. Our food was delicious & served quickly. Great portion sizes. Parking is a little weird with the little hotel next door. Reasonably priced.
