Indulge in the Best Pasta in Fayetteville

As the temperature drops and the heavy coats make their yearly appearance, a meal of hearty, delicious pasta is the perfect treat to warm you from the inside out. To satisfy your Italian cravings, check out these four amazing restaurants - all within easy walking and commuting distance from The Academy at Frisco!


Located just half a mile from The Academy at Frisco, Geraldi's brings a touch of sophistication to the neighborhood-style Italian restaurant. Providing both dine-in and carry out options, Geraldi's specializes in both pesto and garlic cheese pizzas while also offering lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, pesto spaghetti, Mediterranean pasta, and both chicken and spicy shrimp alfredo for those with noodles on the brain.

Vetro 1925

According to The Arkansas Times, "Vetro 1925 succeeds at marrying traditional Italian flavors with modern presentation," which lines up with the restaurant's goal of providing classic Italian flavors with a touch of sophistication. Named after both the Italian word for glass, "vetro" and the year it was built, 1925, this modern bistro specializes in both seafood and fine cuts of meat. This modern take on classic Italian flavors is the perfect restaurant for a date night or girl's night out!

Ramblin Man Food

For a different take on Italian classics, check out Ramblin Man Food - a Fayetteville area food truck easily identified by the tie-dye clad backpacker on the side of their trailer. The perfect food to explore Fayetteville's nightlife with, the chicken fettuccini alfredo and general vibe of the truck have both received rave reviews from locals.

Fresco Restaurant & Cocktails

With a bright interior and clean, modern lines, Fresco Restaurant & Cocktails is a local treasure! Recently introducing both lobster and cheese ravioli onto their already diverse menu of classic and modern Italian flavors, Fresco Restaurant & Cocktails also delivers right to The Academy at Frisco every day from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM.
