Offering all three styles (deep, pan, and thin crust), many offerings, a very nice thin crusted pizza. Several beer options, a nice place near the ASU campus.

I like everything about Oreganos. I searched it out since i used to live in Tucson and ate at the one many times. This one is just as good and the staff is great.

I think the fact there is always a slight wait to get a table here that shows how popular it is. The restaurant is frequented by local students giving it a chilled out atmosphere- perfect for a casual evening meal. The pizzas are amazing and the service is excellent. Would highly recommend (but book if you have time)

Absolutely one of our favorite places for after the game pizza! It is so good and lots of choices for toppings. I like pepperoni and pineapple! Also like meat ball & onions & tomato. Any combination is awesome. Always fresh & hot. You can call in your order so it will be ready when you get there or take it... More

Try the Hawaiian pizza with green chili! Delicious! The salads are huge, so never ever ever get the large salad! The pazookis (dessert cookies with ice cream) are amazing and will feed 4!

My wife and I visited this location recently on a business trip to the area. We ate outside in the open area and really enjoyed the large mural of the Chicago skyline painted on the wall of the adjacent building. They specialize in Chicago style pizza and we enjoyed one of the special offerings. It was very good. The service... More

i chose outside seating on the patio, on a busy night. I had a quick wait, which they offered me a drink. The patio atmosphere was great with stringed lights, lively music, and lots of laughter. The service was quick and efficient. My waitress made sure to give me detailed wait times since it was so busy. It's a large... More

We were in Tempe for 3 nights. We tried Oregano's on night one and loved it so much we returned on night two! The flavor of their pizza sauce tastes just like home-made! And, their meatballs are some of the best we have EVER tried! This was truly a surprise find for us! Can't wait to go back again!!

Whoever had the idea to mix Chicago style Italian food with Mexican spice influences needs to be stuffed in a box and mailed to the old country and STAT! These two flavor infusions should NEVER mix and they don't mix well at all. Just because we're in Arizona doesn't necessarily mean that cayenne needs to go in our marinara. Severely... More
