The mid day rush is was a great deal. You can get pasta, (which are smaller portions) calzone of the day or salad. The mid day rush is from 11 -3. If you are coming with a larger party I recommend the guacamole appetizer and the alfredo after dark. For dessert I would get the cookie icecream for 4.99 it... More

Great atmosphere that equals the great food. If you want salad with your pizza a regular will feed 4-6. Pizza is fantastic the entree's are also delicious. Large portions always food to take home.

Had lunch with two of my cousins, had pizzas and salad. Salad was excellent and in portions we couldn't finish. Pizza was very good as well. A bit too noisy to chat comfortable but will return.

Visited on a Friday night with my family. The atmosphere was fun the food was really good and the service was great. The staff were very friendly. They do go a little heavy on the cheese so be prepared ;). The prices were very good as well. Be cautious of hidden charges on extras like salad dressing.

We waited with the rest of the crowd to get a seat but the wait was worth it. Pizzas were quite good, but the pizza cookies was the most amazing dessert ever! This is a crowded place with two indoor areas and a heated patio. Staff is friendly and the vibe is good. Worth trying!

We went here twice on our trip to Tempe, and both times were spectacular. The food was amazingly good. Pizza, scampi in chipotle sauce, penne pesto in bread bowl, fettuccine and even the pizza cookie dessert were all great and the portions were quite large. All of the staff were extremely friendly and very attentive. From clearing dishes to topping... More

When we have a craving for pizza we don't even have to discuss where we should go. ITs Oregano's! We always get the Numero Uno pizza. Thin crust and the taste is unbelievable. They have patio dining with a nice fireplace for some ambiance. No happy hour deals here but the food makes up for that.
