“Great Fun”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We went with friends (locals) and they ordered. The food was great and the servings large. We enjoyed beer, food and laughs with old friends.

“Always good.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place is always amazing, it has a wide variety of selections that are never disappointing. I especially love their thin crust pizza, it is a perfect pizza, not too much dough, just enough toppings, and the best sauce I have had since my trip to Italy. The service is always exceptional and creates a fun but subtle atmosphere which makes it the perfect place for families, dates, business lunches etc. The prices are what we have come to expect from the modern Italian Bistro, and therefore average from $20 for one (including drink) to $60 for a group of four. This is one place that shouldn't be tossed aside.

“Wonderful Casual Dining Experience”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is one of the best casual dining experiences in Scottsdale. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by the friendly hostess, asking us were we wanted to sit, rather than plunking us down at the closest table. Our waiter, Matt, was exceptional. We let him know this was our first time dining at Oregano's so Matt took the time to explain what Oregano's is best known for in each category, appetizers, salads, pizza and pasta. We opted for the Antipasto salad, Jr., which was huge. My husband & I split the salad and then ordered the thin crust Margherita pizza; billed as Chicago style. Being from Chicago, we are particular about thin crust but this thin crust lived up to the hype. The fresh tomatoes were perfect. My husband (usually very reserved about a recommendation) admitted this was one of the best Antipasto salads ever.

We will definitely be back with friends and hopefully Matt will be working. After traveling across country, he is a stand-out in the restaurant industry and made our first dining experience at Oregano's an absolute pleasure. Can't wait to go back.

“Always good fresh food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

You can't miss when you choose this restaurant. We had 4 people and shared a large salad with their large número Ono thin crust pizza and we couldn't finish.
Would highly recommend this place, we've never been disappointed in any food choice!

“GREAT Surprise !!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

On a hint from a bartender , we stopped in to try this place. She said we should go early...cause it gets crowded ...fast. We made it in about 4:30 , were greeted with a big smile and were seated right away. Wait staff was Super helpful and friendly , especially Irene , what a sweetheart. Drinks showed up but we were not sure what to order , Everything sounded Great. With help from Irene I ordered the El Diablo Shrimp Pasta. She warned me that it was hot and it was but not over the top , plenty of big shrimp and a chipotle sauce over fettuccine with cheese on top , Best pasta I had in a long , long time. The other meal , Alfredo The Dark , was also fantastic , spiral pasta with a cream sauce and a cheese blend , topped with tomatoes and a jalapeno pepper , which Irene told us to cut up and mix in the meal , GREAT choice. We stopped in for a quick meal and found a New favorite place . We wanted to come back for every meal. But get there early cause the line to get seated was out the door , when we were on our way out.
