Fun and Festive

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... read 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.

We have been to this restaurant before and thoroughly enjoyed this visit. Both the food and service were terrific. We enjoyed the garlic bread, a house salad, two pizzas, one thin crust and one pan pie, two pasta entrees and dessert. All were excellent. TIP: If you want something else other than pizza, try the sausage and peppers entree, which... More

Everything positive about this place. Food was good, service was outstanding. If I had to say anything I didn't like, it would have to be that food was a bit pricey. Visited during spring training from Texas.

Visiting from Texas. Grew up in Jersey. This is the real deal NY pizza! Can't get this in Texas. Maybe we'll move here just for the pizza I grew up eating and miss!!

This place is the best pizza around, everybody knows that judging by the massive wait every time we visit no matter which location we visit, but it's worth the wait folks. Couple things I'm not sure everybody knows based on what I usually see on their tables is that the thin crust is good, but the pan style is amazing!... More

This is a reasonably priced Italian restaurant and the plates are large. I always take half of it home. Try to save some room for dessert! Pizzookie is what you need to finish off the night. I've had the chocolate chip and the snicker doodle one with friends. Both are good but the chocolate chip is awesome. Plan to share... More

We were at this location following a Spring Training game. We were warmly greeted, our server came and took our order -- and we awaited our dinner (we were advised it required some cooking time). Some minutes later, our server returned and told us he had made an error in turning in our order. Too the server's credit- and that... More

We have now visited three of the Oregano's in the Phoenix area. We love the pizza and the antipasto salad. We have had wonderful service at each location we visited. One of the things we love about Oregano's is the consistency. We know what we will get when we visit and it is consistent between restaurants.
