Years ago while visiting family in Phoenix they took us to Oregano's. The atmosphere is relaxing, fun, and unique. 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.

It begins when you walk in, and the staff is wearing T-shirts that say, "Legalize Marinara." Next you get the smells, and then you see the food going by. It's over! My wife and I went there last week on the recommendation of the front desk guy at our hotel nearby. We ordered the antipasto salad and something called, "Bollo... More

After a long day poolside in our friend's pool we opted for an early dinner at this place. Wow . . . I'm originally from Chicago so I know what pizza is supposed to be. It is a fun, casual place and the food is excellent. The service staff is fun, efficient, and knowledgeable. We had a party of six... More

We are in Tempe for vacation and 2 friends recommended this pizza. We were not disappointed! The restaurant has a fun, casual atmosphere and even in the afternoon, there was lots of energy. As for the pizza - delicious! Thin, crispy crust served piping hot. The server added lots of Parmesan cheese at the table which added to the taste.... More

I have been to Oregano's several times while visiting AZ. It is kind of a tradition to stop by here for a pizza after a football game. Being from Chicago I have to say the pizza here is solid. This past time I tried the Tony Guacamole. It was really good, but it is super big for two people. My... More

We knew we were in for a treat when we pulled into their packed parking lot and it was a big parking lot. Just a few miles from our airport hotel, this venue made our jet lagged first night in Phoenix a vacation bonus. A special shout out to Garnet, a visiting manager/hostess who gave us beer samples from the... More

My dining party had thin crust pizza, deep pan pizza, and a sandwich. ALL were fabulous! It takes a little longer for the deep pan pizza, but well worth the wait. It is a very cute restaurant and offers outside dining on a patio. Parking lot is even decorated very nicely, giving the feeling of back in time/Italy. Inside deco... More
