Best

We went to a TOILET, Italian Grotto and were so disappointed we looked for Dennys. We came upon Oreganos and fell in love. Excellent staff, food ...

Worst

This rating is for the Tempe location. Most overrated and hyped up psydo-italian style restaurant. Sorry guys but this crap is absolutely NOT anything close to real Italian food. ...

Best Service and food!! 2/23/2011

I love that the servers are bartenders also! They all have to know their stuff really well. Great food + great service. If you want Pizza, a drink, or possibly the BEST Calamari in Old Town come here! more

Best thin crust in Arizona!!! 2/22/2011

Oh. Man! It's worth the wait to get the deep dish (45 min) but you can grab a delicious thin crust in less than half that time and not be late getting back to work! more

Great Pizza 8/1/2009

I am a pizza snob. I love it and can't eat one that's sub-par. But I must say that Oregano's thin crust pizza is fabulous. The sauce is perfect and the crust is baked to perfection. I went there for a friend's birthday and have been a repeat customer ever since. Pros: Everything Cons: None. more

The Best in Gilbert! 9/15/2008

I don't know what to start with, the food, ambience, service, menu! Everything here is top notch. The food in original and fresh to order. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The outside Patio is wonderful with a true Bistro feel. We take family and friends here often and the family style servings are always a great option. Try this restaurant and you will defianately be hooked! Pros: Original food, hot and fresh. Clean and friendly. Wonderful Patio! Cons: nothing more

Awesome! 10/6/2007

This place is great! I know the wait to sit down can be kinda unnerving, but the pizza is just that good! I think that's what makes the wait that much worse, knowing just how great it is and that you have to keep waiting before you can have it! Argh! more

Okay food, amazing pizookie 11/8/2006

The wait was really very long, but the service was nice once we sat down. The meal was just ok. The calamari was passable but not good enough to go back for. The pizzokie however, is craveable! Hot and gooey with quality ice cream. Yummy with a capital Y. Worth going back for that alone. more

My favorite restaurant in Phoenix! 11/5/2006

Oregano's is one of the best restaurants in town. The wait staff is always friendly and the food is fantastic (and reasonable too)! Sometimes it takes awhile to be seated, but it is worth the wait! It is a fun atmosphere and a great experience for out-of-towners. Also, you have to try their pizookie! Pros: customer service, food, value... Cons: sometimes a long wait or difficult parking (some locations) more

Some of the best pizza i've ever had 11/2/2006

I am a pizza snob. I love it and can't eat one that's sub-par. But I must say that Oregano's thin crust pizza is fabulous. The sauce is perfect and the crust is baked to perfection. I went there for a friend's birthday and have been a repeat customer ever since. more

good neighborhood italian restaurant 10/25/2006

not a big fan of their pastas but the pipzza's are good. large portions. and the pizookie (pizza cooking with ice cream) is a must. 2 choices regular choclate chip w/ vanilla ice cream or white chocolate with macadamia nut with vanilla ice cream. every oreganos locations are PACKED at dinner so go early. Pros: pizza cookie Cons: pastas more

Truly Fantastic! 7/16/2006

I love this place. The Beefstro Salad is unbelievable! and the Deep Dish Pizzas are worth the wait. I have never had an item at Oregano's that I did not like. For an appetizer, I recommend the Guaca-Tony. We visit as often as possible. Pros: Great Atmosphere, Great Food Cons: Limited Parking, Long Waits more

OBSESSED 7/15/2006

Ok so I might be slightly biased, but I went to high school about four blocks from Oregano's and literally came here 3-5 times a week for lunch/dinner. It is the most fun restaurant I have ever been to... Granted, I know all of the waiters and they usually will dish out free drinks or comp a salad or pizzookie, but it is just an awesome, awesome place. The salads are excellent (try ordering the italian chicken on a salad instead of the regular chicken... not on the menu, but reeeeeeeeally good), the pizza is awesome, and the pastas are good (especially Zany Ziti) though perhaps not the best ever created. But great garlic bread, great atmosphere, and an most of all, the pizza cookie (pizzookie) is THE most wonderful thing ever created and ABSOLUTELY worth the necessary trip to the gym following dinner. They have white chocolate macadamia nut and peanut butter chocolate chip now, but classic chocolate chip is unstoppable. It's also nice to get ice cream on the side because then it doesn't smush the cookie... if that bothers you, haha. In any case, it is absolutely incredible and a necessary follow-up to dinner. If you don't want to wait, the best thing to do is eat at a semi-awkward time... particularly between 2:30pm-4:45pm. Before/after that, expect a decent wait (normally at least 20-30 minutes)... but it is worth it.... And the small size maintains the familial atmosphere (you'll understand). Also, it's definitely better for groups of 4 or less. Pros: Pizzookies (pizza cookies!) are AMAZING!, amazing staff, incredibly fun restaurant Cons: some pastas aren't fantastic (still quite good though... especially Zany Ziti), no rezzies more

Best Casual Italian 2/8/2006

This restaurant is so fun and casual for either a couple or a big group of people. We typically go with four people, and order this appetizer called guacatony, a medium pizza, and this amazing pablo picasso salad that is so yummy. With tip and drinks and everything you won't spend more than $35 and you have leftovers for a week. So good! The only bad thing is that there is typically a long wait, but it is well worth it, and the atmosphere is just so fun anyways. Pros: Great Atmosphere, Excellent Food, Great Service Cons: Long wait more

User review by kjstock 8/30/2005

you have to wait for an hour for a table of four- too small more

Fantastic Place To Eat 5/19/2005

This pizza joint is awesome! Friendly service, great food, one of the best dining environments in the valley and you never leave hungry. The food is consistent and it feels like you are in a neighborhood house instead of a strip mall with no character. Why go anywhere else? more

Overrated, sorry. 5/8/2005

This rating is for the Tempe location. Most overrated and hyped up psydo-italian style restaurant. Sorry guys but this crap is absolutely NOT anything close to real Italian food. Depending on the time of the day the wait time is rediculous and waiter staff can be quite arrogant. Go there if you want to overpay for average food and get hassled by slow waitresses. Pros: use of spices Cons: mediocre quality, expensive, too busy more

Always worth the wait 6/18/2004

I usually go to the Scottsdale location once a month at least when my girlfriend is in town. There is always a wait because of the high quality of food and service. A lot of the servers have been there for years and remember my name when I come in. It just makes you feel at home when you eat and hang out there. Most restraunts level of service goes down with the more customers they service...Oregano's service level continues to accel no matter how many people cram in there. Always worth the wait :-) more

Don't miss 6/13/2004

The long waits attest to the quality of Oregano's. Not only is the food first rate, service is warm, friendly and just plain fun. The pizza is the menu focus, but try the salads (just wonderful), the soups (but not in summer), and the desserts while you enjoy the inventive surroundings. We make it point ot eat at Oregano's virtually every time we visit Phoenix. Pros: Food, Atmosphere, Service more

A Taste of Home! 6/9/2004

Finally! Oregano's has shown the "Chicago Style" wannabes just what 's the real deal! I will wait as long as it take to eat at this fine establishment. GREAT Pizza, great atmosphere, and great music (a little more blues would be a nice touch!). Whoever said, "There is always room for improvement.", has obviously never dined at Oregano's! Pros: Pizza, Atmosphere, Music Cons: , Limited parking more

Pizza Cookie 12/11/2003

Not only is the ambiance amazing with Frank Sintra-style music and Chicago scenery, but also the service is wonderful. The food is fabulous and the best part of all meals, dessert! Oregano's serves the best dessert ever. It is a slightly baked cookie weighing in at a half of a pound topped with three scoops of ice cream & chocolate chips. It is the best thing ever! Also, Oregano's recently took the antipasto salad off the menu, but you can still order it, so order it people!!! FABULOUS!!!!!! more

    Oregano's remains one of the hottest spots in town with constant crowds packing in around small tables for plenty of pastas and sandwiches, which are offered in addition to the pizza that comes in the stuffed or thin-crust variety.
