The service we received was here was very good. I'd like to say thank-you to Rielly M. (waitress) and Matt D. (bartender) for your courteous and efficient service. We enjoyed the ambience and the food is very good. The outside fills quickly and you should expect a 20 to 30 minute wait.

Maybe we had to high of hopes for the deep dish pizza, but we were a little disappointed. It was a very busy place, a great atmosphere and staff. The wait for the deep dish was clearly marked. However after the wait we weren't overjoyed. Glad we tried it but not the great pizza we wanted.

As it is a chain cannot expect much personalized stuff. But the ambience is nice and food is better than decent. Nice place to hangout with friends or for a business pizza lunch!

We really love this place. It is not fancy but the atmosphere is fun and the staff is great. The food is really good. Pasta and wine, who doesn't like that? Pizza is another option :) Entrees not more than around $10. Pizza a little more for a 12 inch and up from there. Wine reasonable. Not super cheap but... More

We got there a little late, so had to wait a little bit, but were able to sit out at the bar during that time. Waitstaff were fun and very helpful. Food was amazing. Will definitely visit again.

We found Oreganos on Trip advisor looking for pizza near the Phoenix airport and were disappointed. We sat on the patio which is well shaded from the Arizona sun and enjoyed excellent pizza and salad. The staff was cheerful and attentive. I'm glad we came early because I bet the get mighty busy most nights.
