When we have a craving for pizza we don't even have to discuss where we should go. ITs Oregano's! We always get the Numero Uno pizza. Thin crust and the taste is unbelievable. They have patio dining with a nice fireplace for some ambiance. No happy hour deals here but the food makes up for that.

We were taken here by friends who are locals, what a treat! Although it was a little late, and still quite busy, we were seated immediately. Our server was attentive and helpful, and we had drinks and an appetizer quickly. The pizza is great...the typical pizza there has a thin crust. If you NEED to have a thick crust, make... More

The sandwich was Good , pizza just ok and the much hyped soup subpar. Must be one of those days. Will have to think twice during this visit to Aroizona whether to return

Cannot go wrong at Oregano's! Everything here is fresh, yummy and affordable. And consistent at all locations. My favorite is the Big Rig pasta with meatballs!

Our hotel, La Quinta, recommend his restaurant and I am so glad they did. The food, service and atmosphere were great. The lasagna was great and the Big salad was enough for 4.

My family has been going to the original Scottsdale location since they opened, and were thrilled when the Tempe location opened which was closer to our office. I've eaten at this location several times. Yes, it's crowded and the wait is worth it. We've tried almost everything on the menu, but here are our favorites: All Kale Caesar - wow... More

My daughter and I had dinner here. The pizza was really good! Next time we go I'd like to try some of their Italian dishes. Very close to ASU. Great place for families. The Pazookie was to die for!

The pizza is very good, however what brings us back each visit to Arizona is the dessert! Hot huge cookie of your choice, in a cast iron skillet, smothered in ice cream and chocolate syrup is one to fight over! They... More

Love Oregano's always have. But the Tempe store has gone down a bit. I've even had to return pizza there recently. That's the only reason for the 4 stars. Should never have to return food at a 5 star place.
