“Great service - food, not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We had high hopes because this place had some good reviews on Yelp, but were disappointed. The penne pasta was overcooked, the spicy sauce looked and tasted exactly like tomato paste straight from the can. The bright spot was the wings (order them medium which is plenty hot for most people). The thin-crust pizza was just ok. The crust was as-described but the toppings were not flavorful. They are open late, which, for us, was a huge plus.

“Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Love the pizza here. This is a fun place for friends to gather. Good pasta dishes as well. Reasonable prices. Peach frozen Bellinis are great on a warm Phoenix evening

“Great pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Oregano's has a wonderful thin crust pizza. Sometimes you may have to wait. The pasta is adequate but not great. For me, the pizza is killer!

“Oregano's - never a bad experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

A local treasure for over 15 years, Oregano's hits it out of the park every time. Great, friendly service, funky - eclectic decor, and best of all - great value. If you are an "upscale/foody" or feel liking being one, it may not be the place for you that particular evening. However, if you are looking to meet friends and/or family for a great time with something on the menu for everyone that is in the mood for pizza/Italian dishes, this is the spot. Don't be in a rush and need to be seated immediately for a dinner, it won't happen - to many loyal customers are willing to wait, relax and enjoy a drink and conversation prior to a table becoming available. It's a great experience from every angle.

“Yum! My favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

I love this place. It has such a fun vibe and great food. The portions are huge! Zany Ziti is absolutely amazing. There's usually a wait for a table, but it's totally worth it.
