Great for take out

We ordered pizza to go from Oregano's. The restaurant was packed, clearly a favorite spot for many. We did have to wait a while for our pizzas but it was worth it! Both pizzas were delicious- the pepperoni and a veggie. Love the really thin crust. Next time I would like to eat in.

This place has a nice outside dining area and the dinning room is crowded but comfortable. On this visit, we ordered the artichoke dip and a Chicago Thick with roared garlic and spinach. Our server was fantastic and our host was pleasant. The dip was good, but had a bit too much lemon flavor to it and could have used... More

Food was okay, but restaurant is noisy. We were in a group of 9 and were seated rather quickly. They do not take reservations.

My girlfriend and I are out here on business and a co-worker recomended Oregano's. I had The Diablo and my girlfriend had The Lady is a Scampi. Great dinner and our waitress was great. There was not a long wait either. Highly recommended!

"Legalize Marinara" is their slogan and with marinara as good as theirs, it's a crime that it's so far from my house. OMG! Incredible. We had cheese garlic bread to start and shared roasted garlic chicken lasagna. It was to diet for all week. The bill was $17, and I had a soda. Just. Go. So. Great.

The food is delicious! This is my college aged son's favorite restaurant close to ASU. They don't take reservations though and the wait can be more than 45 minutes. Great waitress!

My colleagues and I opted for the Pizza appie and it was big enough to feed a small army - it was also delicious. Great surroundings and atmosphere - I liked the old tv's showing black and white shows and the fifties feel to the menu. Great night out.

This is a very popular Italian restaurant in the Tempe AZ area. We enjoyed the eggplant and spaghetti dish we ordered. Our grandson ordered spaghetti and meatballs which he really liked as well. We would definitely eat here again when we are in the Tempe neighborhood.

For dinner I ordered a "side salad" which was actually meant to be shared family style but since I was so hungry at the time I ended up eating all of it myself. It was ok. If I remember correctly, it was bagged lettuce and not "fresh". Then I ordered their smallest pizza size option of just a plain cheese... More
