My husband and I used to drive 3 hours to go shopping and have dinner here. We always order the pesto penne bakes, but the last 3 times we've gone the bread bowl has been so burned that it's completely inedible. The last time we went I specifically mentioned this to the waiter, and asked if they could take mine... More

We were very pleased with our visit to Oregano's. When we put in our name, they told us 15-25 minute wait. We were pleasantly surprised when we were seated in less than 10 minutes. It's always nice when someone under promises and over delivers! The food was good and the portions were plentiful. The Chicago atmosphere in Phoenix was fun... More

We were just a little disappointed with our pizza. The sauce had way too much oregano, but others may like that in there sauce. The crust crisp but lacked the oven roasted flavor. We were seat promptly and had excellent service.

Oregano's is what I'd describe as a regional chain - there are several in the greater Phoenix area and perhaps in nearby cities. Food quality is average to better than average with very reasonable pricing. We just made it in;10 minutes before closing time so there was no wait. I have driven by these restaurants on other trips and earlier... More

The wait was just about 45 Min on a Tuesday evening . The long time waiting for our order added to the long time. The pizza was really prepared as described but not sure if the 30-40 min prep time is. Would I go back, yeas but will be better prepared for a longer the usual wait.

We and a party of seven, so we had to wait quite a while. However, once seated, we had excellent service and a nice family meal. The salads are huge, pizzas tasty, and there is a large variety of other dishes. I had Diablo Shrimp and pasta and it was very good. My husband had the chicken parm and enjoyed... More

There are a couple of Oregano's locations in the valley but this was my first visit to this one. Friendly staff, very laid-back and family friendly place to eat. Great selection of pizza favorites and Italian-styled dishes.Tasty appetizers. Limited selection of brews on tap.Outdoor patios with heaters.

The Mom's Sausage and Peppers is a huge dish of ziti, peppers and sausage all dressed up in a spicy red gravy. It was served at the perfect temperature and was perfect. DH's Bowl O' Pasta was huge! We couldn't imagine anyone going for seconds but a server told us he had witnessed 1 person finishing off 4! His sausages... More

We love going to Oregano's. Everyone says hello and is very welcoming. However sometimes there is a long wait, since they don't take reservations. So timing is everything. We especially enjoy the Pablo Picasso salad, deep dish pizzas, garlic bread, and they sausage is home made. The wait staff is wonderful and down to earth. Register with them, and you... More
