Great all around place

Great place to sit at the bar and have a great sandwich or entree. The liquor selection is not the best but other than that the food was good.

Great place for a fun night out with friends. Extensive menu with pizza, Italian dishes and more. Wings and waffle fries are why I go there!

We frequent Oregano's for lunch. They have a great lunch special where you get an ENORMOUS slice of pizza for $2.99. Great pizza & salads. We have not tried their deep dish yet, but I've heard it's amazing.

When in AZ a must stop is Oregano's Pizza especially if your a fan of thin crust like me (that's all I eat is thin so can only review thin crusts just don't care to taste lots of dough not my fav for a pizza like tasting the toppings & sauce) Ordered their meatballs to start those are very very...

They have fabulous pizza, great service, and a variety of food choices. The salads are huge! Also at lunch they have a stuffed personal pizza that is my favorite. Each week day it is different.

I frequent this location for lunch during the week. Though it gets really busy from 12pm-12:45 the staff is friendly, courteous, helpful and efficient. Sit at the bar and you will probably be served by Sully, one of the best in the business. He is extremely proactive and if you frequent his bar he will know you by name and... More

Food was so good, we went there twice! We had the thin crust pizza with pesto and it was amazing. The crust was a little soft, so the second time we ordered the crust well done and that was better. Their salads are huge, so we split a kale salad,,very nice. The second time we ordered the original thin pizza... More
