The menu says the roots of this place go back to Chicago, but it is really a great local Italian restaurant with a good deal of the Southwest thrown in, too. Our pizza was good but spicy. And the atmosphere was too. The restaurant is housed in two small eclectic buildings, separated by a covered outside seating area. A mural... More

Excellent place to eat and people watch. Salads and wines are wonderful. Eat inside or outside or even by the bar.

Great Italian food, staff was friendly. It was Granddaughters birthday and they brought out an awesome cookie dessert big enough for 5 of us. Place is a fun atmosphere for families. It can be a little noisy you can eat inside or out. I will be back. LOVED IT!!

I like to go there at lunch for their special stuffed pizza. I can usually eat a lot of pizza, but their individual lunch pizza usually does me in in just two pieces! If you like gobs of cheese this is the pizza for you.

Love this place.. not too expensive and not too crowded... the service is awesome too. We always get a 18inch pizza and a salad for a party of 3 or 4 and it's enough for us

We went on a Tuesday night and were seared immediately. By the time we left there was a wait. Service was prompt. I had the chicken parm, which I thought was excellent. The chicken was moist and tender, the pasta cooked perfectly, and the sauce had a hint of spiciness. My uncle has the bowl if pasta with sausage. He... More

The wait was over twice the time promised. The food was VERY slow in arriving. It's a popular place so that's ok if you are expecting it but expectations were very poorly managed. On a Thursday night plan on 2 hours arrival to food if our experience is any indication.

Oregano's has great (gigantic) salads and wings, and decent Pizza. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff. It's a good, casual sit down for those visiting or local. They are also very consistent from one site to the other, so pick the one close to you and go!!

The red sauce has a bite and is very tasty. My favorite is bowl of pasta. The thin crust pizza is also great. I love sprocelli--spinach and broccoli. Sounds horrible, but it's delicious. The Tempe location is the best.
