Excellent pizza and more

Oregano's was highly recommended‎ by Trip Advisor so I thought I would try it. It's conveniently located between the airport and ASU. I went on a Thursday night at 7PM and the place was full. I had a 15 minute wait. They have plenty of comfortable chairs outside so the waiting is not bad. Most of... read more

Been here multiple times when traveling. We typically will choose this place when we have nothing to do afterward and can just lay back and digest. The stuffed/deep dish pizzas are awesome. The #of people listed on the many for how many each dish will feed is pretty accurate, as we have had some large hungry dudes struggle to put... More

This is my 2nd visit here, I've had all 3 kind of pizza and they were all very good. The prep time is slow, really slow. Expect an hour if you get the stuffed or pan, at least 30 for thin crust. It's worth the wait if you have an evening to kill. The prices are kind of high, a... More

One word. "Ehh." Long wait for very mediocre pizza. Pizza cookie was good although a bit TOO undercooked, even for me and I prefer my cookies pretty lightly cooked. Not convenient to walk to from Mill Ave and surrounding area seemed a bit shady. Wouldn't go again and certainly wouldn't wait 45 to an hour for it again.

Went before the Komen walk with a lot of girls. The pizza was great and so were the girls. Had a great time. Can't wait to get back!

The staff here was amazing and very accommodating (one in our group has terrible nut allergies). Warning! The portions here are huge so be prepared! The food was really good and it's definitely a place I would comeback to!

We came here on a Sunday for lunch and enjoyed a great meatball sub with a tasty roll and a delicious, thin-crust sausage pizza. The bruschetta had crisp bread and big coarsely-chopped tomatoes. The food was excellent! For dessert, have the chocolate-chip cookie in the pan-- it puts the Chili's version to shame and was to die for! It was... More

My husband and I come here often with our son and my brother to eat after church. The menu has a lot to choose from and I always share the bollo pasta with my son since it's all you can eat pasta. Great food for your money.

With Chicagoans everywhere in the Valley of the Sun, there is a demand for real Chicago pizza. The search is over once you have tasted Oregano's. With an origin from the Windy City, coupled with a fun and hip atmosphere, the location closest to the ASU campus is a fun stop to dine, grab a cold one and spend some... More
