Oreganos for some good pizza. We stopped in & had their thin crust BBQ Chicken on Wheat crust. We really enjoyed it. You MUST save room for dessert go for their Cookie dessert w/ice cream (takes about 15 mins to bake) Heather was a great waitress

Is not a traditional restaurant and their system, I think, is more accepted by the young people. If I was having the option "good" I will rate this place so. The dough of the pizza is very good. The different top combination mostly good, with few very good, and few that personally I do not like. I admire the entrepreneurship... More

While it is a challenge because it takes an hour to cook their specialty pie it does not disappoint. Their stuffed Chicago deep dish is delightful. Their hostess is fantastic and dealt with a portion of our party running late like a pro.

Really good pizza, nice outdoor seating area. Sat at the bar while we waited for a table and appreciated the decor - sorta beachy but without the beach. I had cheese on thin crust and almost ate the whole pizza. There were lots of other specialty pizzas on the menu that looked good, I was just in the mood for... More

Nice place, had a good time relaxing with some good food and enjoying the day. The outdoor firepit makes for a warm comfy atmosphere. Rather special to me cuz in Pa. we don't sit outside to eat in Feb. FYI: the small salad is not small! WOW! Was good. Meatballs, lasagna, pizza, etc. I couldn't order a bad item. I'm... More

We ordered the thin crust pizza. It was thin, but soggy and ingredients made picking up a piece almost impossible. My wife and I blamed this pizza for not feeling well that evening and the next day.

Every time I visit my son in Tempe, I make it a point of stopping by Oregano's and some 'good old fashioned Italian family dining. Staff is friendly, food is exceptionally good and the atmosphere is authentic.
