Last night 4 of us visited Oregano's for dinner after checking on trip advisor for ideas of where to go. The atmosphere, the staff, the service, the appetizer,the thin crust pizza and the dessert cookie were all amazing. We had a great meal and great time. The prices were very good too. We would highly recommend this restaurant to all.

Great food, great waiter, great fun! I will return whenever I am in Phoenix. It is noisy but the music is wonderful and the price is reasonable and the portions are generous.

One of my favorite places for pizza.I prefer Chicago style and there's none better near me. Not fancy but a good place to take visitors. Cub fans will be especially comfortable this spring.

I think what we enjoyed most about our experience at the Dobson Rd., Mesa location was that the noise (music) level actually allowed conversation...something that seems to be missing at many restaurants. Though the restaurant was busy, the sound was not intrusive,

We ate here the night before the Phoenix Rock & Roll Marathon. Even though we went early, it was packed. We were told about 20-30 min wait. We found seat at an outdoor bar area and ordered a drink. After we asked, the person taking care of our drink order said we could order food as long as we did... More

Excellent choice for Pizza and Pasta. Better be hungry because the portions are huge, delicious and an excellent value. Staff was very good it was super busy when we arrived but it did not take long to get seated. Ambience is classic American/Italian with a little cheek. We went twice!

It looks like a little " hole in the wall", but has personality. We had a great waitress- Jessica, which makes the experience even better. It is a chain, but if feels like a mom and pop place. They have the Chicago Style pizza which is cut in pieces, rather than " slices". The thin crust is absolutely great. They... More
