On our way back from a four hour Apache Trail Drive, we were HUNGRY! My son suggested Oregano's. Good choice. The place is interesting with a retro décor. They have old TV shows on the various TVs around. In addition are a bunch of memorabilia on the walls and shelves. The service was attentive. Food was mostly good. We started... More

We lived in Chicago for a few years and love the deep dish there. This is not quite that good as far as the pan pizza, but the thin crust is pretty good. Nice atmosphere at this place as well. Good spot for good pizza.

I love Oregano's. The food is outstanding and I always have an enjoyable experience. Until last night. I had family in town, they wanted Italian food. They picked out a place but as a resident of Phoenix, I insisted if they wanted good Italian food, we had to go to Oregano's. And they couldn't have proved me more wrong. I... More

After having eaten at Chicago pizzerias, I tried Oregano's. They do a pretty good job on the pizza. The crust has a good flavor and the sauce is excellent. They use a decent amount of cheese too.

We came later in the evening, after 7. They were busy, but we got in after a short wait. Our waiter Mike did a good job telling us that portions were big.....they were. If we each had ordered an entree, it would have been too much. We had the stuffed mushrooms...delicious! We ordered the "big salad"...it would've easily served 4... More

Been to this restaurant a few times on different occasions and I just given up. Salty pizza, poorly made sandwiches and the customer service is bad. I have called their customer service to let them know. They were apologetic, offered me a gift card but declined. I just want good food and service. Maybe one day I will go back... More

They have amazing thin crust pizza here. I wish we would have been able to try the deep dish - maybe next time we're in town. Great atmosphere and service as well.

Great story along with this restaurant and its fantastic pizza! I can only speak for the pizza and garlic bread since that is what we ordered but both were wonderful. One of the best pizza places we've been to. The pasta and salads all looked fabulous while being served to other tables as well. If you're looking for a great... More

my new favorite meal here is the side meatball (1 or 2) paired with the garlic bread they will offer marinara sauce with the bread - but if you are getting meatballs they include marinara

We ordered some pizzas for the table and the service and food were wonderful. The decor is an interesting combo of vintage retail food containers and thrift finds that fit well with the theme. Easy to find off Elliot street in Tempe and right across the street from Walmart. They have fortune cookies for you as you walk out the... More
