We love Oreganos but this is our least favorite Oreganos location. It is very small and cut up into several different areas. Due to size, there is almost always a significant wait. Try the location in Scottsdale Road instead.

Stopped by here for lunch while in town for business because all of the locals rave about it. I'm not sure if it is because it was too hyped up or if I had been desensitized by all of the restaurants I've been to recently, but I personally wouldn't classify Oregano's as anything more than good casual Italian food.

We've been here twice and the pizza is always great (i just have to mention both times, the pizza came out a little salty), many selections to choose from. The servers are always friendly, the price is just right and the place is always buzzing with customers.

First time trying it. Pizza was ok. Super thin so it got cold really fast. Typical Italian place, pretty loud. Good for a quick lunch.

Always friendly staff! Great location and right near work. For lunch you have to go early or you will be stuck in the middle of a big lunch rush. Beware the bog salads...they are really REALLY bog. Enough for two people! They have a lunch slice that always looks and smells tasty! Oh and you can get a to go... More

The menu says the roots of this place go back to Chicago, but it is really a great local Italian restaurant with a good deal of the Southwest thrown in, too. Our pizza was good but spicy. And the atmosphere was too. The restaurant is housed in two small eclectic buildings, separated by a covered outside seating area. A mural... More

Excellent place to eat and people watch. Salads and wines are wonderful. Eat inside or outside or even by the bar.

Great Italian food, staff was friendly. It was Granddaughters birthday and they brought out an awesome cookie dessert big enough for 5 of us. Place is a fun atmosphere for families. It can be a little noisy you can eat inside or out. I will be back. LOVED IT!!

I like to go there at lunch for their special stuffed pizza. I can usually eat a lot of pizza, but their individual lunch pizza usually does me in in just two pieces! If you like gobs of cheese this is the pizza for you.
